Aerosol Samplings​

Aerosol Samplings
  • Aerosol collection sampler low volume:
    two instruments with sampling head at PM1, PM2.5 or PM10

The aerosol filters analyze for:

  1. Ions by ion chromatography (Cl-, NO3-, SO4-2, C2O4-2, Na+, NH4+, K+, Mg2+, Ca2+)
  2. Metals by ICP-OES or ICP-MS (Pb, Ni, As, Cd, Hg, Al, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mg, Sb, V, Zn)
  3. Elemental Carbon and Organic Carbon (EC, OC) by sunset analyzer
  4. Soluble Particulate Carbon and Particulate Organic Nitrogen (TOC – TON)
  5. Iron, phosphorus (techniques using UV spectrophotometer)
