Methanol Passive Sampler


Orderable Items The miniature VOC Chek 575 Methanol Sampler collects methanol vapors in air without the use of a pump. Vapors diffuse into the sampler at a 1.2 ml/min fixed sampling rate. SKC has validated the sampling rate of the VOC Chek 575 Methanol Sampler along with other critical sampling parameters to meet OSHA/ASTM/ANSI requirements.



 
  • Accurate and reliable 

  • Small and lightweight

  • Easy to use!
    • No pump, training, or cumbersome sampling train required

  • Validated for 15-minute and 8-hour sampling at concentrations of 20 to 400 ppm methanol

  • Secondary diffusion barrier ensures consistent 1.2 ml/min sampling rate

  • Saves time and money
    • Collects methanol with one sampler for up to a full 8-hour workshift, eliminating multiple trips to the worksite
    • One sampler + one analysis = money saved
    • Economical solvent desorption and GC analysis

  • Superior collection efficiency, no reverse diffusion
    • SKC sorbents have a larger surface area for higher capacities
    • Sampler contains 500 mg of Anasorb 747

  • Housing designed for easy analysis


  • One-week sample storage at ambient temperatures or three weeks at <39.2 F (4 C)

  • Ideal for chemical, fuel, wastewater, and hydraulic fracturing industries

    575 Series Passive Sampler for Methanol
    Overcomes Limitations of Active Methods

    VOC Chek Front and Back





    SKC VOC Chek 575 for Methanol
    The miniature VOC Chek 575 for Methanol Sampler collects methanol vapors in air without the use of a pump. Vapors simply diffuse from the atmosphere into the sampler at a 1.2 ml/min fixed sampling rate. SKC has validated the sampling rate of the VOC Chek 575 Methanol Sampler along with other critical sampling parameters to meet OSHA/ASTM/ANSI requirements.

     

     

    Full-shift Sampling with only ONE sampler

    The SKC Methanol Passive Sampler collects methanol for up to an 8-hour work shift with superior efficiency. The Methanol Passive Sampler overcomes the short sample times and sample migration concerns of active methods. These samplers are ideal for use in chemical, fuel, wastewater, and hydraulic fracking industries.

    Using a VOC Chek Passive Sampler is easy as 1, 2, 3!

    Remove front cap and snap on secondary diffusion barrier.

    VOC Chek 575 Series Passive Samplers
    Validated to NIOSH Protocol 1


    Validation
    Passive sampling is quite different from active sampling with sorbent tubes. With this fact in mind, NIOSH established validation protocols for evaluating the performance of passive samplers. 1   Protocol validation was developed so that manufacturers could produce passive samplers that reliably assess airborne levels.

    For compliance sampling, it is recommended that only passive samplers with full or bi-level validation be used. Passive samplers with lower levels of validation may be used only if verified by validated sorbent sample tube methods.
