INTRODUCTION
The SKC Deployable Cartridge Sampler (DCS) System is a compact, portable,
and battery-operated sampling system that ensures the ability to sample gaseous
polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polyhalogenated dibenzo-p-dioxins
(PHDDs), and polyhalogenated dibenzofurans (PHDFs) and particulate-associated
PHDDs and PHDFs in ambient air. The system features the fully programmable
constant flow Leland Legacy Sample Pump and an easy-to-use sampling head
that houses a stainless steel cartridge. The cartridge can be loaded with a 47-mm
quartz filter and PUF (EPA TO-9A) or XAD®-2 sorbent (EPA TO-13A). The easily
deployed system is packaged in a portable heavy-duty Pelican® case from which
the system operates.

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
A sample pump draws air at a flow rate of 10 L/min through nozzles on top of
the sampling head and into the cartridge. The cartridge is designed to be loaded
with a cleaned 47-mm quartz filter that collects particles and cleaned PUF or
XAD-2 sorbent that adsorbs gases and vapors. The aluminum foil-wrapped
cartridge is supplied in a Teflon jar so that the sample is protected from light
and contamination during transport. The filter and sorbent media are combined
for extraction followed by GC/MS analysis for EPA TO-13A or HRGC/HRMS for
EPA TO-9A.

Deployment of Cartridges for Field Sampling
Immediately prior to field deployment, follow the procedure in EPA TO-9A or
TO-13A, Section 10.4.
SAMPLING HEAD PREPARATION
Cleaning the Sampling Head
All cleaning, loading, and unloading should be conducted in a controlled
environment to minimize any chance of potential contamination. When new
or when using the sampler at a different location, all sample contact areas need
to be cleaned. Rinse with appropriate organic solvent. Allow the solvent to
evaporate before loading a cartridge.
For deployed applications where method-specified solvents are
unavailable, use isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol or a clean tissue wipe.
Do not place any mechanical object in the inlet nozzles.
O-ring Care for the Sampling Head
Visually inspect the condition of the BUNA-N exhaust O-ring (see illustration
on page 3 for location). Ensure the O-ring surface is smooth (i.e., without cracks,
cuts, or other damage). Ensure the O-ring is fitted properly in its channel.
Replace the exhaust O-ring if there is apparent damage, stretching, or thinning.
It is recommended that the Teflon inlet O-ring be replaced by the manufacturer
only.

Inserting a Cartridge into the Sampling Head
Wear disposable, clean, lint-free nylon or powder-free surgical gloves
to handle the sorbent and cartridge.

SAMPLE PUMP OPERATION
The user may choose to:
• Operate the pump manually in the field (on/off )
• Program a schedule into the pump manually
• Program the pump for multiple schedules from a PC
with optional DataTrac® for Leland Legacy Software
(see Ordering Information, Accessories on page 14).
See page 9 for a Quick Guide to operate the SKC Leland
Legacy Sample Pump. For advanced programming, see the
complete Leland Legacy Pump Operating Instructions.
Charging the Battery
Completely charge a new battery pack using the SKC-approved charger (Cat. No.
223-241) before operating the pump. It may be necessary to charge the battery a
few times before maximum battery capacity is achieved.
Cautions:
• Do not charge or operate pump with or without charger in hazardous
locations.
• Use only the SKC-approved charger for this pump. Use of an
unapproved charger may damage the battery and pump.
• Use of a non-approved charger voids any warranty.
• Do not open, disassemble, short circuit, crush, incinerate, or expose the
battery to fire or high temperatures.
• Tampering with the battery pack voids any warranty.
• Ensure proper orientation of charging cable before plugging it into the
charging jack. Improper orientation/contact will short-circuit the battery
and voids any warranty.
• Short-circuiting the battery pack will render it immediately inoperative.
• Failure to follow warnings and cautions voids any warranty.
The battery pack may be kept on the SKC-approved charger for an
indefinite time.
1. Insert the plug from the charging unit into the
charging port on the battery adapter (on top of the
external battery assembly).
2. Insert plug from power supply into the jack on the
charging unit.
3. Install the appropriate wall plug on the power
supply and plug power supply into a wall outlet.
The battery will recharge in approximately 15
hours. For a complete charge, do not run the pump
connected to the external battery assembly during
charging. After charging is complete, disconnect

After charging the battery pack, it is good practice to run the pump for
approximately 5 minutes before calibrating. This ensures the battery is
in more steady-state conditions and improves the agreement in pre and
post-sampling calibrations.
