The Passive Sampler for Organic Vapours collects organic vapours without the use of a pump. The sampler is validated for short-term and eight-hour sampling and 24-hour indoor sampling for some compounds. 
 
Use the sampler to test exposure to VOCs such as toluene, tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, xylenes, ethylbenzene, 2-butanone (MEK), hexone (MIBK), benzene, butyl acetates, and styrene. Models exclusive for Ethylene oxide and Methanol are also available.
 

SKC has scientifically validated the sampling rate of the 575 Series passive samplers along with other critical sampling parameters to meet OSHA/ASTM/ANSI requirements. SKC 575 Series Passive Samplers are identified as a viable alternative to active sampling in seven OSHA methods.

  • Newly designed housing for easier analysis
  • No assembly required
  • Accurate and reliable — Proven performers
    • Extensively tested, with Research reports for 30 compounds available
  • Save time and money
    • Collect most compounds 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
  • Variety of samplers available
    • Only SKC offers a choice of sorbents to better target specific contaminants
    • Proper sorbent selection means no reverse diffusion
