TE-5170DV-BL 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 physical design of the sampler is based on aerodynamic
principles that result in the collection of particles of 100 microns (Stokes Equivalent
Diameter) and less. The TE-5170DV-BL TSP VFC sampler consists of a TE-5001

Ambient air monitoring to determine suspended particulate levels relative to air
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-5170DV-BL TSP VFC High Volume Air Sampler should be calibrated:
After any motor maintenance
Once every quarter (three months)
After 360 sampling hours
