Staplex® TSP and TSP-2 Series Total Suspended Particulate (TSP)


Model TSP-1 Total Suspended Particulate Air Sampling System, 110-125VAC

Model TSP-2 Total Suspended Particulate Air Sampling System, 220-230 VAC

(specify accessory configuration when ordering)

Staplex® Model TSP-1 and TSP-2 Total Suspended Particulate High Volume Air Sampling System is designed for fast, accurate collection of suspended particulates in accordance to U.S. EPA specifications.

These complete air sampling systems, available with various modular accessories, are designed to meet the EPA requirements for sampling airborne particulates at a known flow rate for a determined amount of time, allowing for proper calculation of airborne particulate concentrations.

Basic System

The basic Staplex® TSP Air Sampling System includes Staplex® High Volume Air Sampler (Model TFIA 110-120 VAC or Model TFIA-2 220-230 VAC) with vertical mount flowmeter; SH810 8"x10" Filter Holder Assembly and SAM Aluminum Outdoor Shelter.

Filters - Staplex® Type TFAGF810 8"x10" Glass Fiber Filters recommended for Total Suspended Particulate Air Sampling

DTM-4CDT Digital Countdown Timer Turns Air Sampler "OFF" after preset times. Features LCD display and thumb-wheel setting dials. (range from 99,999 hours to 1 second). Size: 3" x 4-1/4" x 5" (7.6 cm x 10.8 cm x 12.7 cm); Weight: 1.75 lbs. (0.8 kg). Usable for 110-125 VAC, 220-240 VAC and 24 VDC.

ETI-1 and ETI-2 Elapsed Time Indicator Shows sampler run time in hours and hundreths (99,999.99 hours). Standard models are non-resettable mechanical models. Specify Model ETI-1 for 120 VAC, 60 Hz.; Model ETI-2 for 220 VAC, 50 Hz. (Re-settable model ETI-1R is also available for 120 VAC.)

Constant Flow Controllers Models FC-1 and FC-2 - Automatically maintains a constant mass flow through an High Volume Air Sampler regardless of filter loading, atmospheric conditions and line voltage. Specify Model FC-1 for 115 VAC; Model FC-2 for 230 VAC. [requires SH810 filter holder assembly]

Models FC-1ETM and FC-2ETM include built-in non-resettable Elapsed Time Indicator.

Models FC-1MLT and FC-2MLT include built-in Mechanical 7-Day Timer and non-resettable Elapsed Time Indicator. (see additional data sheet).

Flow Recorder - Models FR-1 and FR-2 - Provides a permanent record of High Volume Air Sampler performance during a 24-hour period. Specify Model FR-1 for 115 VAC; Model FR-2 for 230 VAC. (see additional data sheet).

Calibration Kit - Models 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)

PM10 Size Selective Inlets - for U.S. EPA PM10 environmental air sampling. Staplex® PM10 Size Selective Inlet is available separately as Part No. PM10-SSI for conversion of existing TSP (Total Suspend Particulate) High Volume Air Sampling Systems to PM10 System. (see additional data sheet)

4, 5 & 6 Stage High Volume Cascade Impactors - for particle size separation (see additional data sheet)
