TE-5200 8 Operations Manual
The High Volume Air Sampler is the recommended instrument for sampling
large volumes of air for the collection of TSP (Total Suspended Particulate).
The physical design of the sampler is based on aerodynamic principles which
result in the collection of particles of 100 microns (Stokes Equivalent
Diameter) and less. The TE-5200 TSP Tripod consists of a TE-5002 Anodized
Aluminum Tri-Pod Shelter, TE-5005 Aluminum Blower Motor Assembly, TE-
8x Stainless Steel Filter Holder, TE- Slack Tube
Manometer, and TE-5010 Motor Voltage Control/Elapsed Time Indicator.
Ambient air monitoring to determine suspended particulate levels relative
to air quality standards.
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
Monitoring of enclosed environments for relatively high levels of particulate
matter, particularly toxic materials.
Monitoring of emissions from large diameter vents where physical
conditions preclude the use of conventional stack-testing equipment.
TE-5200 TSP Tripod High Volume Air Sampler should be calibrated:
After any motor maintenance
Once every quarter (three months)
After 360 sampling hours
