HiVol 3000 XAD

High Volume XAD Sampler

The HiVol 3000 XAD sampler provides a flexible platform for sampling organic compounds and monitoring basic meteorological parameters. The XAD sampler collects a wider variety of compounds (than a PUF sampler) on a hydrophobic polyaromatic resin (XAD).

Proven reliability

The HiVol 3000 XAD unit is a reliable, durable and proven sampler using volumetric flow control to maintain a consistent flow and collect a truly representative sample of particulate matter. Optional attachments allow the sampler to measure wind speed and direction which can then be used to trigger sector selectable sampling (e.g. fence-line monitoring). The HiVol 3000 XAD incorporates advanced programming functions and electronic volumetric flow control to maintain a consistent flow and collect a truly representative sample.
