TE-CD-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 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-CD-TSP sampler consists of a TE-5001-CD Anodized Aluminum Shelter, TE-
5001-10 Gabled Roof Assembly, TE-5070-CD Regenerative Blower Motor Assembly, TE-
5003V 8”x10” Stainless Steel Filter Holder, TE-10557TSP-BL Volumetric Flow
Controller, TE-5030 30” Water Manometer, TE-10618 Male Stagnation Fitting, TE-
10617 bulkhead fitting, TE-VFC+ Flow recorder(USB Data Log, Elapsed Time Indicator,
Digital Timer, Flow recorder, instantaneous Flow Calculations.
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 relationship exists.
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.
