FUNGI IN AIR MYCOMETER®-AIR
Mycometer®-air is the state of the art test method
for onsite quantification of fungal particles in air in
less than an hour. The methodology measures the
level of fungal particles in terms of viable and most
nonviable spores and hyphal fragments. Further, two
independent peer reviewed publications have shown
that it also measures microparticles from the fungi. The
Mycometer®-air methodology quantifies fungal particles
in the air by measuring the level of the enzyme, β-Nacetylhexosaminidase (NAHA), from airborne fungal
particles captured on a 0,8 µm pore size filter.
ADVANTAGES
Mycometer-Air provides
unprecedented reliability over
currents methods. Whereas, spore
traps and culture plates data sets
may have standard deviations
of more than 50%, Mycometerair is consistently less than 10%.
Improving data reliablility, means the
data collected is more meaningful.
The ability to collect robust data
onsite means the professional can
make the best decision possible in
the least amount of time.
•High reproducibility (<10% RSD) in the methodology
•The Mycometer®-air test is verified by USEPA
•Objective analysis free from subjective evaluation
•Elimination of high short term variability with a standardized
aggressive sampling protocol
•Aggressive Post Remediation sampling (similar to that used
for asbestos) gives the best possible results for confident
project completion
•Low chance of false negatives when using the aggressive
sampling protocol
•Rapid results onsite
•No overloading
•interpretive criteria for many applications
APPLICATIONS
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING
CORTEMP®
CORE BODY TEMPERATURE MONITOR
The CorTemp® core body temperature monitoring system, featuring the CorTemp™ ingestible
temperature sensor; monitors, records and reports core body temperature accurately,
wirelessly, and comfortably...even during periods of high physical activity.
HOW CORTEMP® SENSOR WORKS
• The silicone coated sensor contains a micro battery,
quartz crystal, communication coil and circuit board, all
encapsulated in medical grade epoxy.
• Once ingested, the crystal sensor vibrates at a frequency
relative to the body’s internal temperature, produces
a magnetic flux and transmits a low-frequency signal
harmlessly through the body.
• The sensor passes through the body at the subject’s normal
rate of motility which can vary anywhere from 24–36 hours.
• Monitoring can be extended by administering another
sensor after the initial pill has passed.
• The CorTemp® sensor is accurate to ± 0.1°C and is FDA
cleared and registered as a single use device.
CorTemp® Data Recorder
The CorTemp Data Recorder wirelessly picks up the signal from the CorTemp sensor and
converts the signal into digital format. It displays temperature in real time and stores data for
download and later analysis.
The data recorder detects the signal from the CorTemp® sensor, then displays and stores the
data in memory. The unit can be preprogrammed manually or via the CorTrack™ II software. A
clinician can easily transfer the recorder’s data directly to a PC platform where the data can be
imported into Excel® or similar spreadsheet program for analysis.
The data recorder will monitor up to 99 different CorTemp® sensors and can be either worn by
a subject for continuous monitoring or can be used to take random, manual readings of multiple
subjects in a field or laboratory setting. Polar® Heart Rate is an optional feature available on the
CorTemp® data recorder.

FORMALDEHYDE MONITOR FM-801
FM-801 FORMALDEHYDE METER
The FM-801 is a portable, continuous measurement
formaldehyde (HCHO) meter now available from
GrayWolf. A reusable sensor cartridge employs
the chemical reaction between formaldehyde
and ß-diketone on a porous glass. The yellowing
that results from this reaction is measured via
photoelectric photometry with accurate readings to
<20ppb HCHO, without significant cross-sensitivity
from typical background compounds, making it ideal
for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) applications. Tests run in
as little as 30 minutes. The unit ‘re-zeros’ between
30 minute tests allowing for continuous monitoring,
and provides an output for real-time connection to
most GrayWolf platforms.
Formaldehyde Measurement - to very low levels of detection
The FM-801 measurement range, with excellent specified accuracy, is from 20ppb to 1ppm, although the unit will
read out all the way down to 10ppb. Display readings in ppb or µg/m3 HCHO.
Some Key Facts:
•
The FM-801 may be used for continuous monitoring, and/or for 30-minute spot checks.
•
The FM-801 can be interfaced to a GrayWolf AdvancedSense meter, WolfPack monitor or WIN7 Tablet/Notebook.
FM-801 readings are simultaneous to readings from any other sensors connected to the AdvancedSense,
WolfPack, or Laptop, logged into the same data file. Attach audio/photo/video/drawing/text notes to data files
for efficient, reliable documentation of environmental surveys.
•
The FM-801 base unit can also be used as an independent, simple data-logger. Logged data may be downloaded
to GrayWolf’s versatile WolfSense PC software.
•
Sensor cartridges may also be used as independent passive samplers which are then checked/displayed via the
FM-801 Base Unit.

FORMALDEHYDE MONITOR Z-300XP
Z-300XP FORMALDEHYDE METER
Environmental Sensors Co.’s Formaldehyde Meter
is a portable desktop instrument that measures
formaldehyde concentration in a range of 0-30 ppm
and a resolution of 0.01 ppm.
The instrument makes it possible to monitor
formaldehyde vapour in air. The instrument has a
LCD display giving concentrations in ppm every 10
seconds, a low battery indicator, and an audible alarm
that can be set at any level from 0-30 ppm.
With the touch of a button, the meter displays an
average concentration.
The internal pump makes it possible to sample from
hard-to-reach areas or confined spaces by attaching a
flexible tube to the meter.
ELIMINTES INTERFERENCES
The Z-300XP Formaldehyde meter uses a filter cartridge to eliminate many of
the common interferences.
The procedure is simple. Insert the filter cartridge into the air intake
receptacle labelled “Filter” in the back of the meter.
With the use of the filter system, interferences are virtually completely
removed.
Only certain aldehydes and ketones need to be considered. The filters do not
permit separations of these classes of compounds.

Here’s how the Quantifit works.
40
[email protected]
During a fit test, the respirator inlets are capped with test
adapters, and the inhalation valves are removed from the
mask.
With the test subject holding his or her breath for no
more than ten seconds, the Quantifit then establishes and
maintains a slight vacuum, or controlled negative pressure,
inside the mask. Since the respirator inlets are sealed, all
sources of leakage into the mask are through the face-tofacepiece seal. The volume of air drawn out of the mask by
the Quantifit during this short period of time is equal to the
leak rate into the mask through the faceto-facepiece seal.
It’s that simple….

DIESEL PARTICULATE MONITOR
Airtec TM Diesel Particulate/
Elemental Carbon Monitor
The Airtec monitor is a compact and highly portable
real-time elemental carbon monitor designed to
determine exposure of workers in underground mines to
diesel particulate material (DPM). Airtec uses a real time
particle capture and light transmission method to yield
elemental carbon values which closely correlate with
NIOSH 5040 test results to measure EC and TC levels in
underground mines.
Operational Advantages
•
Real time results
•
No more waiting days or weeks for results
•
Can be worn on a belt or vehicle/wall mounted
•
Light and highly portable
•
No filters to send to an outside lab
•
All measurements done on the instrument
•
Easy to use
•
Self-explanatory interface
•
Verifies effectiveness of ventilation
•
Allows corrective action to be taken
•
Generates dozens to thousands of EC
concentration values for less than a single NIOSH
5040 test
•
Can connect to a data network via optional 4-20
mA output
•
Specifically detects DPM (via EC measurements);
no sensitivity to common mine interference
Diesel particulates are composed primarily of elemental
and organic carbon, and have been found to present
a health hazard. DPM levels can be high in workplaces
where diesel equipment is used; particularly so in
underground mines due to the enclosed workspace.
Airtec is designed to allow the operator and
management to take immediate, remedial action to
address a problem area within a mine. Levels can also
be tracked over time to determine the possibility of
long term health hazards and help eliminate the risks
associated with over exposure.

LOW-FLOW SAMPLING KIT
LOW FLOW KIT
®
CONSUMABLES REQUIRED
¼” LDPE or HDPE tubing and ¼” silicone tubing
required (see pg 69)
The basic ideology of low-flow sampling is that the
well is purged at a low rate to minimise drawdown and
avoid disturbance in the well. The low sampling rate
means the water is pumped from the formation whilst
leaving the stagnant water in the casing undisturbed.
Typical flow rates are 0.1 to 0.5 L/min, which is close
to or less than the natural movement of groundwater
through the well.
ADVANTAGES OF LOW-FLOW
RENTAL INCLUDES
•
Low turbidity samples, reducing field filtering costs and time
•
QED Sample Pro bladder pump and case
•
Less mixing of stagnant casing water with formation water
•

QED MP30 DRAWDOWN & WATER LEVEL METER
MicroPurge® Drawdown/Water Level Meter
• The MP30 Drawdown/Water Level Meter provides a patented, simpler way to
assure drawdown control when connected to the MicroPurge® controllers, and
acts as a high quality water level meter.
• The MP30 can easily switch between both modes. For drawdown control the
meter is turned to MicroPurge® mode and the probe is lowered to the point of
maximum drawdown.
• If purging lowers the water level to the selected point, a light and buzzer
on the MP30 meter are activated and the controller is signalled to enter a
standby mode until the water level rises again. A separate light indicates probe
submergence in both modes.
• The MP30 Drawdown Control Meter is designed to help control draw-down
during monitoring well purging. The MP30 has 3 primary modes of use:
When connected to the MP10 controller, pump operation is automatically
paused if the elected drawdown limit is reached, then resumed when the
well recovers to this point.
• Includes light and sound indicators of reaching the drawdown limit (dry
probe condition).
• When switched to water level mode, the MP30 provides conventional water
level meter functions of light and sound indication upon contact of the
probe with water.

WHAT IS A PHOTOIONIZATION DETECTOR (PID)?
A PID, short for photoionization detector, is a broadband sensor that responds to a large variety of
organic and some inorganic compounds.
The general class of compounds suitable for detection is volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or
hydrocarbons (HC). Because of their sensitivity and fast response at extremely low concentrations of
compounds (parts per billion), PIDs protect workers not only from gases immediately dangerous to life,
but also from toxic vapors that have long-term health effects.
What Does a PID Detect?
How Does a PID Work?
A PID measures all compounds whose
ionization energy (IE) is less than the energy
of the lamp photons (see figure at right).
RAE Systems offers 9.8, 10.6, and 11.7
eV lamps.
Broadband Toxic Compound
Monitoring in the Workplace
Until recently, the only low-cost way to
get a “Go” or “No Go” reading for toxic
VOCs was through the use of broadband
toxic sensor such as MOS (metal oxide
semiconductor) or lower explosive limit
(LEL) sensors. These are not sensitive
enough to provide accurate warnings of
most toxic vapors until the permissible
exposure levels are greatly exceeded.
For example, benzene’s permissible
exposure limit is 1 ppm, due to its highly
carcinogenic nature. PIDs can easily
measure down to 0.1 ppm benzene,
while MOS and LEL sensors are best used
above 100 ppm and cannot detect these
low levels.
Advantages of a PID
Very sensitive – low ppm readings
measured with confidence.
Instantaneous display, updated every
second, for real-time monitoring of toxic
chemicals.
Threshold monitoring – visible and
audible alarms in real time for STEL
(short-term exposure limit), TWA (timeweighted average), and Peak. Alarm
signals vary for each condition.
Datalog for compliance and work shift
trend analysis.
Fast, simple calibration with isobutylene.
A large table of correction factors
is available, alleviating the need to
purchase many calibration gases.

Continuous Monitoring Alarms When Permissible Exposure Levels are exceeded
Protection Vs. Detection
PIDs have traditionally been considered
“detection” instruments, particularly well
suited for use by first responders and
entry teams to determine the extent
of a spill or airborne emission. RAE
Systems’ PIDs are “protection” monitors,
quantifying chemical concentrations
and alerting workers to hazardous
conditions. Other applications include
PID ppm and ppb monitoring for
combustible gases such as jet fuel,
gasoline, and solvents.
Other methods such as colorimetric
tubes provide only a snapshot of the
concentration and no real-time alarm,
unless the sample happens to be taken
at the exact time of the peak occurrence.
RAE Systems PID monitors provide
ongoing detection and instantaneous
alarms to indicate when exposure limits
have been exceeded for a wide range of
chemicals.
When limits are exceeded, the
datalogging feature of RAE Systems
monitors allows the individual to store,
recall, and “see” exactly when the levels
were a problem, whereas a tube cannot
indicate when a level was exceeded or
[email protected]
[email protected]
whether it happened all at one time or
over the course of a worker’s shift.
Data from RAE Systems monitors can
be instantly accessed from a personal
computer. An individual can be asked
what happened to create a situation in
which exposure limits were exceeded
while the individual can still recollect
what happened. The answer could be
as simple as cleaning with solvents or
the failure of a ventilator. Therefore,
with fast-acting PIDs, instantaneous
alarms and datalogging, RAE Systems
monitors allow safety action to be taken
immediately. Other methods, such as
activated charcoal sampling, can take
days or weeks to get results back from
a lab.
Measuring a “Witches’ Brew” of
Chemicals for a Particular Toxic
PIDs can be used to measure a highly
toxic component of a complex mixture if
its percentage in the mixture is known.
For example, if a gasoline contains
1% benzene and the broadband PID
reading for the entire gasoline mixture
is below 50 ppm, then benzene is below
its Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) of
0.5ppm.

USING PIDS FOR 10% OF
LEL DECISIONS
One of the many requirements for
entering confined spaces is the
measurement of confined spaces
for flammable gases. Prior to entry
of a confined space, the level of
flammable gases must be below
10% of LEL (lower explosive limit).
The most common sensor used for
measuring LEL is the Wheatstone
bridge/catalytic bead/pellistor sensor
(“Wheatstone bridge”).
LEL Sensor Limitations:
•“Heavier” hydrocarbon vapors
have difficulty diffusing into the
LEL sensor and reduce its output
•Common chemicals may poison
LEL sensors
PIDs: Alternatives for 10% of
LEL
Photoionization detectors (PIDs)
are sensitive hydrocarbon sensors
originally designed to measure
ppm
levels
of
hydrocarbons
for the environmental industry.
PIDs are uniquely suited for
measuring hydrocarbon mixtures.
Because PIDs use an optical
technology, they are resistant to the
poisons that can ruin Wheatstone
bridge sensors.
WHY MONITOR BENZENE?
DEFINITION OF TWA, STEL
AND CEILING
Benzene is a known human
carcinogen that is present in
automotive gasoline and other fuels
in concentrations typically 0.2 to
3%. Its regulated exposure limit is
so low (proposed 8-hour day TWA
of 0.5 ppm) that its concentration
alone usually defines the toxicity
of the fuel vapors as a whole.
Thus, it is necessary to measure
low concentrations of benzene
(often ≤1ppmv) in the presence of
much higher concentrations (tens
to hundreds of ppmv total) of the
hundreds of aromatic and aliphatic
compounds that make up gasoline.
Typically, the TWA is the lowest
value, STEL is somewhat higher and
the Ceiling is the highest. Ceiling is
the concentration that should never
be exceeded, even for one instant.
The STEL is a running average
concentration over the immediately
previous 15-minute period.
Specific Benzene Measurements
RAE-Sep™ benzene tubes scrub
nearly all components out of gasoline
vapors except benzene. This is
accomplished through a proprietary
absorption medium in the tubes.
Further selectivity is afforded by
using a 9.8 eV lamp, which responds
strongly to aromatics but weakly to
many hydrocarbons.
Applications include tank entry
pre-screening during refinery and
plant
maintenance,
hazardous
material response, marine spill
response and refinery downstream
monitoring.

the petrochemical industry to notso-obvious applications such as
sausage manufacturing.

The instantaneous concentrations
may exceed the STEL value as long
as they never exceed the Ceiling,
and the 15-minute running average
never exceeds the STEL limit. If
the STEL alarm level is reached,
the worker must be removed from
STEL-level exposure for at least one
hour.
Workers can be exposed to a
maximum of four STEL periods per
8-hour shift, with at least one hour
between exposure periods.

FLAME IONIZATION
DETECTORS (FIDS)
Flame Ionization Detectors (FIDs)
respond to a broad range of organic
compounds but are non-selective.
While their linearity is excellent, their
use is limited by their large size and
weight, including the need to carry a
hydrogen cylinder. FIDs are relatively
expensive
and
maintenanceintensive, and this limits their use in
most industries. PIDs and FIDs are
often referred to generically as organic
vapor analyzers, or OVAs. Many
people want to know the difference
between the two techniques, and the
difference is really one of preference.
The difference between an FID and
a PID is like the difference between
a meterstick and a yardstick. They
effectively measure the same things,
but because PIDs are smaller,
easier to use, and significantly
less expensive, their usefulness in
industry is potentially greater than
FIDs.

Using PIDs to Assess
Exposure Risk in Unknown
Environments
Risk Decisions Based on PIDs
Photoionization detectors (PIDs) can measure volatile
organic compounds (VOCs) and other toxic gases at
concentrations from parts per billion (ppb) to 10,000
parts per million (ppm). This sensitivity allows PIDs to
be used to make accurate, instantaneous decisions as
to the levels of ionizable chemicals to which workers are
exposed. By simultaneously solving for human and PID
meter sensitivity, a logical program of atmospheric risk
reduction based upon PID response can be implemented
in both known and unknown chemical environments.
Three Scenarios on How to Set PID
Alarms:
the mixture are identifiable, the individual chemicals and
their concentrations should be easily determined through
a contents label or MSDS. Then the following equation
can be used to determine the toxicity of the mixture:
ELmix =
(X1/EL1 + X2/EL2 + X3/EL3 + ... Xi/ELi)
“EL” is the Exposure Limit and X is the mole fraction
(percent by volume) of each volatile chemical. Similarly,
the Correction factor for the mixture can be calculated
using the following equation:
CFmix =
In order to better understand making a decision that
combines these two sensitivities we can look at three
specific examples of applying a PID to make an exposure
limit decision:
1. Single gas/vapor
2. Gas/vapor mixture with constant make-up
3. Gas/vapor mixture with varying make-up
1
1
(X1/CF1 + X2/CF2 + X3/CF3 + ... Xi/CFi)
To clarify the usage of these equations lets take an
example. Suppose that you have a complaint of paint
odors and upon investigating you find that the paint
contains 15% styrene and 85% xylene. Then the
exposure limit is calculated as follows:
ELmix = 1/(0.15/50 + 0.85/100) = 87 ppmmix
1. PID Alarms for a Single Gas/Vapor
It is comparatively easy to gain information on a single
chemical:
•
0.15 is 15% styrene
•
Identify the chemical.
•
50 is the 50 ppm exposure limit for styrene
•
Set the PID correction factor to that chemical from
the PID manufacturer’s listing. This solves the
equation for PID sensitivity.
•
0.85 is 85% xylene
•
100 is the 100 ppm exposure limit for xylene
•
Find the Exposure limit(s) for the chemical (refer to
exposure standards). This solves the equation for
human sensitivity.
•
Set the PID alarms according to the exposure limits.
Most PIDs can automatically do the math involving CF,
so, for example, all the user has to do is select “toluene”
from the PID library, and the PID is measuring in “toluene”
ppm. Then set the PID alarm to the appropriate value
(100 ppm for OSHA), and the PID is able to accurately
make “toluene” decisions. For example:
0.5CF x 100 ppmiso= 50 ppmtoluene
Exposure Limit = 100ppmtoluene
Conclusion = Atmosphere is safe
2. PID Alarms for a Gas/Vapor Mixture with
Constant Make-up
Often processes do not involve a single chemical, but may
involve a compound that is a mixture of toxic chemicals.
This “witches’ brew” of toxic compounds requires greater
care in determining alarm setpoints. If the contents of
Melbourne 03 9464 2300
Sydney 02 9716 5966
In a similar manner the Correction Factor is calculated:
CFmix = 1/(0.15/0.4 + 0.85/0.6) = 0.56
•
0.15 is 15% styrene
•
0.4 is the CF for styrene
•
0.85 is 85% xylene
•
0.6 is the CF for o-xylene
The reading in the area with the paint odors was 120 on
the PID in isobutylene units. Multiplying this reading by
the correction factor of 0.56, an actual concentration in
mixture units was 67.2 ppm. This is under the calculated
exposure limit of 87 ppm of mixture. If the reading were
178 ppm in isobutylene units, the actual concentration
would be 100 ppm of the mixture, consisting of 15 ppm
styrene and 85 ppm xylene. This mixture reading is
over the exposure limit of 87, even though none of the
components are over their individual exposure limits.

Environments (continued ...)
3. Setting PID Alarms for a Gas/Vapor Mixture
with Varying Make-up:
The “Controlling Compound” (example)
Many times we can identify the chemicals present, but
their relative concentrations vary throughout a process.
Or, in situations like HazMat Response, one cannot predict
the chemicals present or their relative concentrations.
Therefore, we have to look at another way of using the
PID to make decisions. Setting alarms in a varying or
unknown mixture means that you have to simultaneously
interpret both the human sensitivity (exposure limits) and
PID sensitivity (Correction Factors) for all of the chemicals
involved. Fortunately, this is easier than it sounds. Every
mixture has a compound that is the most toxic and
“controls” the setpoint for the whole mixture. Determine
that chemical, and you can determine a conservative
setpoint for the entire mixture. The basic assumption is
that if we are safe for the “worst” chemical in a mixture,
we will be safe for all of the others.
1. Express all exposure limits in equivalent units.
2. Look for the compound with the lowest exposure
limits in equivalent units.
3. Set the PID for that setpoint, and you are safe for all
of the chemicals in the mixture.
Table 1:
Chemical Name
Exposure Limit
Ethanol
1000
Toluene
100
Acetone
750
Table 1 is a simple example where ethanol appears to
be the safest compound and toluene appears to be the
most toxic. This is because most people are accustomed
to making decisions solely on human sensitivity. Users
of meters rarely take into account that, like humans,
meters have varying sensitivities to different chemicals.
Therefore, Table 1 only provides half of the decisionmaking equation. The exposure limit is expressed in units
of different chemicals. When trying to use a PID to make
a decision regarding which is the “worst” chemical, one
might be comparing 1000 apples to 100 pineapples. What
is required is to express the exposure limits in a common
78
[email protected]
unit of measurement. Because PIDs are calibrated to
isobutylene, and Correction Factors are expressions of
PID sensitivity to a chemical relative to isobutylene this is
very easy to do. First let’s look at this theoretically:
ELChemical: Exposure Limit in chemical units (ppm).
Unless otherwise indicated the EL is typically an 8-hour
TWA.
CF =
PID Isobutylene Response x Concentration of gas (ppmv)
Conc. of isobutylene (ppmv) x Response of gas on PID
ELIsobutylene = ELchemical (ppmv)
CFchemical
So to get the exposure limit in units of isobutylene we
divide the exposure limit in chemical units by the ratio of
chemical units to isobutylene units.

In Table 2, the far right column expresses all of the
exposure limits in equivalent units of isobutylene. Now
the chemicals can be compared on equal footing. One
can compare apples to apples. While humans are not
as sensitive to ethanol as they are to toluene, the low
PID sensitivity to ethanol combined with the highest
exposure limit in the table makes ethanol the “controlling
compound” when the exposure limits are expressed in
equivalent isobutylene units. In this example, the PID is
left on an isobutylene measurement scale and the alarm
is set to 83 ppm. As long as the PID does not alarm, then
no respiratory protection is required.
Note: Setting alarm limits this way is the most
conservative, restrictive approach, required by the
limited information. When compound ratios are known
better, the methods in Section 2 always allow higher
alarm settings and fewer work restrictions

The Effect of Extension Tubing
Volume and Vacuum on
Sample Flow for RAE Systems
Instruments TN-140
Introduction
Tubing Materials
Tables 1 - 3 show the wait times that need to be
considered when using extension tubing, to allow for the
gas sample to reach the instrument. The times assume
that the sample line has not been pre-filled with the air
sample of interest.
Never use Tygon or rubber tubing as extension probes
when measuring VOCs, because these materials
strongly absorb VOCs. The higher the boiling point
of the compound, the greater the effect. Short Tygon
connections are acceptable. For benzene, connections
less than 6” have little effect at the flow rates typical
for MiniRAE and UltraRAE, although it is preferable to
keep them less than a few inches. Teflon or metal tubing
absorbs the least VOCs; stiff polyurethane is a good
second choice if the formers are not available.
Results
Only the smallest diameter tubing (1/8” O.D., which
is 1/16” I.D.) causes a substantial pressure drop and
reduced flow rate. Wider 4 mm O.D. (1/9” I.D.) or 3/16”
O.D. (1/8” I.D.) can cause some pressure drop at longer
lengths or if it has many bends (see Table 4 at end of
next page). For the UltraRAE, we recommend using the
wider 4 mm Teflon tubing (p/n411-0005) to reduce strain
on the pump and to give better consistency. The times
should be added to the standard measurement times for
the UltraRAE compound of interest. For the MiniRAE, the
delay time data are minimum measurement times that
may be exceeded; for the UltraRAE, it is important to
have exact timing.
Pump Flow Curves
Figure 1 below shows curves of flow vs. inlet vacuum
for RAEGuard and ppbRAE. The MiniRAE 2000 has the
same flow characteristics as the ppbRAE. Although the
pumps can draw down to about 100” of H2O (74 mm
Hg) without leaks, this creates a significantly reduced
flow rate. We recommend not applying greater than 40”
of H2O (30 mm Hg) vacuum to avoid excessive strain
on the pump and reduce the chance of leaks developing
when parts are worn.

Pressure Drop in Tubing
Maximum Vacuum or Pressure
Pressure drop in extension tubing depends on the inner
diameter, the number and severity of bends, and total
flow rate. Typical pressure drop for different types of
tubing and flow rates are summarized in Table 4 below.
The “Max Flows” in Table 4 are the nominal flows with
no tubing or only short sections.
The maximum vacuum obtained on most RAE
instruments with a built-in pump (including MiniRAE
2000, ppbRAE, RAEGuard, VRAE and MultiRAE Plus on
high pump speed) is about 280 mm Hg (150 inches of
H2O). On the outlet side, these instruments (except
MultiRAE, which has no outlet port) can push against
a pressure of up to about 6 psi or 170 inches of H2O
(310mm Hg). Note that the flow is close to zero, or very
low, at these maximum values, and RAE Systems does
not recommend operating the pump for long periods
under such conditions.
To calculate the flowrate with tubing attached, use the
value in Table 4 to estimate the vacuum in the tubing
and then read the flow drop off of Figure 1. For example,
a 10-foot section of 1/16th-inch I.D. tubing will cause
a pressure drop of 1.3 x 10 = 13 inches of water in a
ppbRAE or MiniRAE with nominal flowrate of 500 cc/
min. Figure 1 shows that at a vacuum of 13 “H2O the
flowrate drops from 540 to 450 cc/min. For 100 feet of

Setting Alarm Limits for Mixtures TN 130
Introduction
When using PIDs it is often necessary to set alarm limits
for mixtures of compounds. To do this, it is necessary
to know the threshold limit value (TLV) for the mixture.
In a few cases of common complex mixtures such as
gasoline, TLVs exist, but in many cases the mixture
TLV must be calculated from the TLVs of the individual
components. Once the TLV is known, it is best to
calibrate with the compound mixture and set the alarm
limits directly. However, when standards of gas mixtures
are not available, it is possible to calculate mixture
Correction Factors (CFs) from those of the individual
components, and use this value to set the alarm limits.
The necessary equations are given below:
A reading of 100 then corresponds to 320 ppm of the
total mixture, comprising 16 ppm benzene and 304
ppm hexane. The TLV for this mixture is:
TLVmix = 1 / (0.05/0.5 + 0.95/50) = 8.4 ppm
This corresponds to 8.0 ppm hexane and 0.4 ppm
benzene. The alarm setting for an instrument calibrated
with isobutylene is:
TLV reading = 8.4 / 3.2 = 2.6 ppm
A common practice is to set the lower alarm limit to half
the TLV reading, and the higher limit to the TLV. Thus,
one would set the lower and higher alarms to 1.3 and
2.6 ppm, respectively.
Example 2: Not All Compounds Detected
Air-VOC mixture containing 30% phenol (CF = 1.0,
TLV = 5 ppm) and 70% methylene chloride (CF = No
Response, TLV = 25 ppm) has a Correction Factor, TLV,
and alarm setting of:
TLVmix = 1 / (X1/TLV1 + X2/TLV2 + X3/TLV3 + … Xi/TLVi)
CFmix = 1 / (X1/CF1 + X2/CF2 + X3/CF3 + … Xi/CFi)
Alarm Setting = TLVmix/CFmix
where Xi, TLVi, and CFi are the mole fraction of total
VOCs, TLVs, and CFs of the individual components,
respectively. TLVs are available for many compounds
in the ACGIH Handbook, and CFs are available for over
200 compounds in RAE Systems Technical Note TN-106.
Example 1: All Compounds Detected
Air contaminated with ppm level VOCs distributed as
5% benzene (CF = 0.53, TLV = 0.5 ppm) and 95%
n-hexane (CF = 4.3, TLV = 50 ppm) has a Correction
Factor of:
CFmix = 1 / (0.05/0.53 + 0.95/4.3) = 3.2
Melbourne 03 9464 2300
Sydney 02 9716 5966
CFmix = 1 / (0.3/1.0 + 0.7/∞) = 3.3 TLVmix = 1 / (0.3/5 +
0.7/25) = 11.4 ppm
TLV reading = 11.4 / 3.3 = 3.4 ppm
The suggested low and high alarm settings are 1.7
and 3.4 ppm. The TLV mixture corresponds to 30% of
11.4 = 3.4 ppm phenol and 70% of 11.4 = 8.0 ppm
methylene chloride. In this case, the PID with a 10.6 eV
lamp does not respond to the methylene chloride, and
all the response is due to the phenol. The alarm setting
of 3.4 ppm is lower than the TLV of the phenol alone
(5 ppm), because the methylene chloride contributes
to the toxicity of the mixture even though it is not
measured.

TECHNICAL & DATA INFORMATION
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Constant Pressure Controller
Cat. No. 224-26-CPC
The Low Flow Constant Pressure Controller (CPC) is an accessory for the SKC AirChek® 52, AirChek
2000, and AirChek XR5000 sampling pumps that allows low flow sampling for one or more sample tubes.
In conjunction with an Adjustable Low Flow Holder (Cat. No. 224-26-01, 224-26-02, 224-26-03, or 224-2604), the CPC is used as a pressure regulator to maintain a constant 20 inches water back pressure across
the needle valve(s) in the Adjustable Low Flow Holder. The CPC inlet to the sample tube is marked with a
label for ease of orientation.
Operation
1. Set the pump flow rate at approximately 1.5 L/min, as outlined in the pump’s operating instructions.
2. Using a short length (approx. 1 to 1-1/2”) of Tygon® tubing, connect the pump inlet to the CPC outlet
(the side of the CPC without a label).
3. Connect the inlet port of the CPC to the Adjustable Low Flow Holder. Insert selected sample tube and
adjust flow (see operating instructions for Adjustable Low Flow Holder).
Note: The CPC has 2 small inlet ports on the bottom of the unit. These ports should be periodically inspected for blockage, which can occur when sampling in dusty environments. Blocked ports can cause back
pressure to increase. If needed, clean ports with a small pick and blow particles away with a puff of air.

224-26-04), the CPC is used as a pressure regulator to maintain a constant 10 inches water back pressure
across the needle valve(s) of the Adjustable Low Flow Holder.
Operation
1. For Pocket Pump: Enter Constant
Flow mode and set the pump to the
desired flow rate.
2. For AirLite: Set pump flow rate at
approximately 1.5 L/min, as outlined
in the pump operating instructions.
3. Using a short length (approx. 1 to
1-1/2”) of Tygon tubing, connect the
pump inlet to the CPC outlet (the
side of the CPC without a label).
4. Connect the inlet port of the CPC to
the Adjustable Low Flow Tube Holder. Insert selected sample tubes and
adjust flow (see operating instructions for Adjustable Low Flow Tube
Holder).

TECHNICAL & DATA INFORMATION
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Adjustable Low Flow Tube Holder
The adjustable low flow tube holder is designed to be used for low flow applications from 5 to 500 ml/min
using sorbent sample tubes.
1. Port and tube holder (smaller ID rubber sleeve*)
2. Threaded fitting (fits all SKC protective tube covers)
3. Flow adjustment screw (needle valve) (1 per port)
4. Outlet (to pump)
5. Tygon® tubing
6. Anti-tamper cover (tri and quad models only)
7. Collar clip (tri and quad models only)
8. Rubber tubing
9. Larger ID rubber sleeve*
Operation
For Single, Dual, Tri, and Quad Models
1. Set the pump to the low flow mode (see pump
operating instructions, low flow applications).
2. Attach Tygon tubing 5 (8 with rubber tubing
end) to the intake port on the pump.
3. Determine the number of tubes needed for
sampling. Break tips off the representative
tube(s) for pre-sample calibration.
4. Insert the tube into the rubber sleeve of the
first port 1 with the arrow of the tube pointing
toward the pump. Repeat for desired number
of ports. Place an unopened tube in each
unused port to “seal” it.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Operation (Continued..)
5. Calibrate the flow rate through each representative tube (see Notes A, E, F, and G below).
a. Set pump flow rate as directed in the pump operating instructions.
b. Connect the tubing from a calibrator to the exposed end of the tube in the first port.
c. Using a flat-head screwdriver (see Note D below), turn the flow adjustment screw (needle valve) 3 on the
first port clockwise to decrease flow or counterclockwise to increase flow until the desired flow rate is
indicated on the calibrator.
d. Note: For tri and quad models, first rotate the anti-tamper cover(s) 6 to expose the flow adjustment
screw(s) 3. Reposition anti-tamper covers 6 when calibration is completed.
e. Repeat Steps 5.a and 5.c for remaining active ports (see Note B below).
Note: Each port is controlled independently with its own flow adjustment screw (needle valve).
f.
Once flow is calibrated for each active port, it is recommended practice to repeat Steps 5.b through 5.d
before removing representative tubes.
6. Remove the tube(s) used for calibration from the ports and replace with the tube(s) to be used for sampling.
7. Thread the appropriate protective tube cover(s) onto the threaded fitting(s) 2 on the tube holder.
8. Use the collar clip to attach the holder to the worker’s clothing near the breathing zone.
9. Sample for the desired time (see Note H below).
10. When sampling is complete, reinstate the representative tube(s) used for calibration in Step 5 and perform a
post-sample calibration.
Special Notes
A. It is good industrial hygiene practice to perform a pre and post-sample calibration.
B. Changing the flow rate through any one port will not change the flow through the other ports appreciably. It is
recommended practice to perform a second calibration of all active ports under your unique sampling conditions
prior to sampling (see Steps 5.b through 5.d above).
C. Do not use the flow adjustment screw to shut off flow completely as valve seat damage may result. Use an
unopened tube to seal the port.
D. Do not use an oversize screwdriver as thread damage may result.
E. Do not calibrate several tube holders using only one pump. Calibrate each tube holder with the same pump that
will be used for sampling. Calibrate before each sampling operation.
F. When using a multiple port tube holder, set the pump for a flow rate that is ≥ 15% higher than the sum of the
flow rates through all connected tubes. See pump operating instructions for details.
G. If the pump enters flow fault 15 to 20 seconds after the adjustable flow tube holder is attached, confirm that the
pump has been set properly for low flow operation. See pump operating instructions.
H. If you remove one tube from a multiple tube holder during the sampling period, immediately replace it with an
unopened tube for the remainder of the sampling period.
I. Two rubber sleeves are supplied for each tube holder port to hold the sorbent tube in place. The smaller ID rubber
sleeve comes preassembled and attached to the port. The second larger ID rubber sleeve comes unassembled
and may be used for a sorbent tube with a larger OD. To ensure a proper fi t, test each sorbent tube and rubber
sleeve fit prior to sampling. Using a rubber sleeve with the incorrect ID may result in a loss of flow.
