Svantek offers versatile air sampling pump

Svantek-GilianGilAirPlusImagesmallSound and vibration measurement specialists 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.

Svantek say the product range will include the GilAir Plus, which is especially designed for simultaneous high and low flow personal measurement of particulates, vapours, gases and metal fumes.

According to the company, the GilAir Plus is widely recognised as the most versatile personal air sampling pump available, and offers an unrivalled air sampling range from 1ml/min up to 5000ml/min – without the need for any external adapters. Svantek add that it operates with all common media, offers multi-language capability and has an outlet port for bag sampling.

The company goes on to say that, 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. They add that 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 and 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.”
