Button Aerosol Sampler - For Low Level Inhalable PM sampling

Classification:  Inhalable

Flow Rate: 4 l/min

Filter size:  25mm

Unique features:  Low sensitivity to ambient air conditions.  Reduces oversampling of very large particles

The patented* reusable SKC Button Aerosol Sampler is a filter sampler with a porous curved-surface inlet designed to improve the collection characteristics of inhalable dust (< 100 µm aerodynamic diameter), including bioaerosols for viable or non-viable analysis. The curved, multi-orificed inlet, made of conductive stainless steel, reduces electrostatic effects and reduces sensitivity to wind direction and velocity. The proximity of the filter to the inlet minimizes transmission losses and provides equal distribution of particle loading and low intersample variation. The Button Sampler closely follows the ACGIH/ISO sampling criteria for inhalable particulate mass at 4 L/min. A convenient conductive plastic transport case is available for shipping the filters to a laboratory for analysis.

  • 4 L/min flow rate enhances sensitivity

  • Low sensitivity to wind direction and velocity
  • Reduces electrostatic effects
  • Small and lightweight
  • Reduces oversampling of very large particles
  • Suitable for collecting bioaerosols for viable or non-viable analysis
  • Kit available for sampling heavy metals during abrasive blasting
  • Autoclavable
  • Ideal for personal and area sampling 

Applications

Operation 
The SKC Button Sampler is easy to operate. Simply unscrew the inlet section, remove the PTFE O-ring, place a conditioned and weighed 25-mm filter on the stainless steel support screen, replace the O-ring, and screw the inlet section back onto the sampler. Connect the Button Sampler to a personal sampling pump; clip the sampler onto a worker’s collar and the pump to the worker’s belt. Sample for the appropriate time period.
