TE-5170V VFC TSP 8 Operations Manual
The High Volume Air Sampler (also known as a lead sampler) is the
recommended instrument for sampling large volumes of air for the collection
of TSP (Total Suspended Particulate). The TE-5170V TSP VFC sampler
consists of a TE-5001 Anodized aluminum shelter, TE-5070 Aluminum
Blower Motor Assembly, TE-5003V 8x Stainless Steel Filter (older with
pressure tap, TE-5009 Continuous flow/pressure recorder, TE-10557 TSP
Volumetric Flow Controller, TE-5007 Mechanical Timer, TE-5012 Elapsed
Time Indicator, TE-5030 Manometer, TE-10618 male stagnation tube fitting.
Ambient air monitoring to determine mass concentration of suspended
particulate levels relative to air quality standards. The result is reported
in micrograms per cubic meter.
Impact of a specific source on ambient levels of suspended particulates by
incorporating a "wind-direction-activation" modification which permits
the sampler to operate only when conditions are such that a source-
receptor relationship exists.
TE-5170V TSP VFC High Volume Air Sampler should be calibrated at the site:
After routine maintenance
Once every quarter (three months)
After 360 sampling hours
