Button Aerosol Sampler - For Low Level Inhalable PM sampling
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.
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.
