Chim chim cheroo...!

New isokinetic sampler is automatic

Sorry about the main headline (but only just!) On the face of it, this might not sound like the most exciting story you've read, but for those poor souls that have to climb chimney stacks in order to monitor process emissions, this is really great news; less equipment has to go up there and what you do take is now quicker and easier to use, and it helps you produce better monitoring data.

Quantitech has announced the launch of a new generation of automatic isokinetic samplers that bring new levels of speed, accuracy and reliability to the sampling of particulates and gases from chimneys, stacks and ducts.

The new Tecora Isostack G4 (4th Generation) automatically records measurement values in addition to equipment configuration data, in order to improve the reliability and traceability of monitoring results. Compliant with international standards and compatible with existing probes and sample trains, the G4 offers stack testers the opportunity to automate their sampling procedures and generate .xml reports quickly and simply.

The Isostack G4 is available in 2 versions (both with 4 or 8 m3/h pump): as a single complete unit (G4-1) with built-in display and keyboard, or as two (G4-2) separate units; a small lightweight intelligent controller, and a larger heavier sample pump, which means that the controller can be used at the measuring point, whilst the pump unit can be located at a more convenient location.

With built-in self-test capability and intuitive set up and operation procedures, the Isostack G4 has been designed for ease of use. Quantitech's Dominic Duggan says "The simplicity of the G4's operation is a major advantage because, coupled with the automatic reporting capability, it will reduce the time spent setting up the system and improve reliability.

"We also believe that the G4-2 will be particularly popular because it limits the size and weight of equipment that has to be carried safely to the monitoring location."
