This and many other topics covered in this month's issue
 
What Should I Use for Saturation Monitoring?
When you do not need a USA EPA FRM sampler, Mesa’s Omni FT is a perfect solution for saturation monitoring. Possible applications include:

• New Construction Sites
• Reclamation Sites
• Fenceline Monitoring at Industrial Sites
• Urban Studies

The OMNI FT is also especially well-suited for speciation studies, such as determining the metal content of particulate matter in a region, because the particulate is collected on a standard 47mm filter with excellent flow control.

USA EPA FRM samplers can be expensive, so the option to choose an OMNI FT for your application saves money. It also increases efficiency. The OMNI FT is extremely portable and can run for 48 hours using the internal battery power. Its 1% flow control accuracy is unrivaled when it comes to non-reference air samplers.

 

How Do I Know if My Sampling Instrument Has Accurate Flow?
Most sampling instruments, will state that they contain either a mass flow controller or microprocessor flow control using a mass flow sensor. The instrument should also have a stated flow control accuracy.
