TE-5170 TSP MFC 9 Operations Manual
The TE-5028 is the preferred product used to calibrate the TE-5170 MFC TSP High
Volume Air Sampler. It simulates change in the resistance by rotating the knob on the
top of the calibrator. The infinite resolution lets the technician select the desired flow
resistance. The TE- calibration kit includes: carrying case, slack tube water
manometer, adapter plate, tubing, and TE-5028A orifice with flow calibration
certificate. Optional electronic manometer is available by ordering TE-5028E.
Each TE-5028A Orifice Transfer Standard is individually calibrated on a primary
standard positive displacement device which is directly traceable to NIST.
** It is recommended by the EPA that each calibrator should be re-calibrated
annually. (1998 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 50 to 51, Appendix B to Part
50, Reference Method for the Determination of Suspended Particulate Matter in
the Atmosphere, 9.2.5 page 29.)
