Personal air sampling pumps!

Svantek has added Gilian personal air sampling pumps from US-based Sensidyne to its portfolio of occupational health and environmental noise and vibration monitoring instrumentation. Reinforcing the company’s commitment to further growth in Britain, this expanded product range will include the high performance GilAir Plus, specially designed for simultaneous high and low flow personal measurement of particulates, vapours, gases and metal fumes.

Widely recognised as the most versatile personal air sampling pump available, the compact and lightweight GilAir Plus offers an unrivalled air sampling range from 1ml/min up to 5000ml/min - without the need for any external adapters. Delivering superior design for ultimate worker comfort, it operates with all common media, offers multi-language capability and has an outlet port for bag sampling.

With patent pending QuadModeSM air sampling technology, the GilAir Plus can perform both high-flow constant pressure and flow (450-5000 cc/min) and low-flow constant pressure and flow (20-499 cc/min) with a single pump. Other key features include selectable automatic fault recovery, standard temperature and pressure correction and a real-time clock with data-logging.

Svantek’s Managing Director, John Shelton, comments: “The GilAir Plus’ innovative dual air sampling feature reduces sampling time and costs plus increases worker comfort. Monitoring exposure to airborne particulates, gases and vapours often requires industrial hygiene and occupational health & safety professionals to take multiple air samples from the environment of one worker. This may require the employee to wear multiple air sampling pumps or returning to sample on another day. This can be expensive, inconvenient and uncomfortable.

“The Gilian dual port high / low flow manifold enables connection of two different sampling media so eliminating the need for multiple sampling pumps. Two manifold adjustments enable the setting of separate flow rates for each media connection. A single tube connects the Gilian manifold to the GilAir Plus providing an efficient method for obtaining two samples from a worker during a single shift.”

Svantek’s GilAir Plus has numerous ease of use benefits including intuitive menu, keypad interface and large back-kit display for quick and simple pump setting adjustment. Once the instrument is set up, the keypad can be locked to prevent tampering. A convenient and innovative SmartCalSM features provides automatic pump calibration.

When sampling at altitudes of up to 8,000ft above or below sea level, GilAir Plus has the capability of automatically correcting the flow rate for altitude changes to maintain constant flow accuracy of +/- 5% over this barometric pressure range. This permits GilAir Plus calibration at ground level and sampling at high elevations or deep mines without loss of flow accuracy or the need to calculate and use manual correction factors. GilAir Plus is the only personal air sampling pump with this capability.

A third smaller than traditional personal air sampling pumps and weighing less than 580g, the GilAir Plus provides superior operator comfort. An integrated belt clip securely attaches the pump in a horizontal position, allowing workers a full range of motion to perform a wide variety of task without interference or discomfort.

The GilAir Plus dock provides charging and communication functions for the STP and datalogging models. Once docked, the PC application allows users to review datalogs, generate sampling reports, manage sampling programmes, and create pump set-up profiles that expedite deployment of large pump fleets.

The SmartCalSM feature uses the dock as a communication link between appropriate calibration devices and the GilAir Plus. SmartCalSM automates calibration and records pre and post sample calibrations in the pump’s datalog. Gilian CONNECT is an industry-leading PC application for managing air sampling data and Gilian Plus Series pumps.
