TE-5170 TSP MFC 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-5170 TSP MFC sampler consists of a TE-5001
Anodized Aluminum Shelter, TE-5005 Aluminum Blower Motor Assembly, TE-5004
x Stainless Steel Filter Holder with probe hole, TE-5009 Continuous
flow/pressure recorder, TE-300-310 Mass Flow Controller, TE-5007 Mechanical
Timer, and TE-5012 Elapsed Time Indicator.
Ambient air monitoring to determine mass concentration of suspended
particulate levels relative to air quality standards. This 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
TE-5170 TSP MFC High Volume Air Sampler should be calibrated:
After routine maintenance or exchange of vacuum motor or motor brushes.
Once every quarter (three months).
After 360 sampling hours.
