Kit - Model CKHV810 - U.S.
EPA prescribed method for accurate calibration of High
Volume Air Samplers. U.S. EPA recommends
that High Volume Air Samplers be re-calibrated at least once per
year (or when major components such as the motor or flowmeter
are changed). Model CKHV810 can be used with 4" or 8"
x 10" filter holder assemblies. (see
additional data sheet)
PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION:
Suspended particles in the air
are sampled at 40 ACFM through the circumferential inlet of the
PM10 Size Selective Inlet. The symmetrical design insures
wind-direction insensitivity, and the Inlet design and internal
configuration makes the collection efficiency independent of
wind speed from 0 to 36 kilometers per hour. The particles are
then accelerated through multiple circular Impactor nozzles. By
virtue of their larger momentum, particles greater than the 10
micron impactor cut-point impact onto the greased impaction
surface. The PM-10 particles smaller than 10 microns are carried
vertically upward by the air flow and down multiple vent tubes
to the 8-inch x 10-inch quartz fiber filter (Staplex® No.
TFAQ810), where they are collected. The large particles settle
out in the impaction chamber on the collection shim and are
removed/cleaned during prescribed maintenance periods.
The quartz fiber filter is
weighed before and after sampling. The weight increase is the
mass of particles smaller than 10 microns. The mass
concentration of PM-10 particles (micrograms per cubic meter) is
determined by dividing the particulate mass (micrograms) by the
sampled air volume (cubic meters). The FC-1 Series Electronic
Mass Flow Controller included in the system properly totalizes
the air volume by maintaining a constant flow rate of 40 ACFM
regardless of filter loading, atmospheric conditions and line
Inlet Collection Efficiency:
PM10 Inlet has a cut-point of 9.7 microns over a wind speed of 0
to 36 KPH.
Flow Rate: 40
cubic feet per minute (CFM), 1.13 cubic meters per minute.
Filter Media: 8-in.

Accuracy of Mass Flow Control
(@ 40 CFM): ± 2.5%
deviation over 24-hour sampling period.
