Chemtech Laboratory – March 2012 to present. VOC Department-Air Lab
Measuring the determination of volatile organic compounds in air by EPA method TO-15: This method applies to ambient concentrations of VOC’s above 0.1 ppbv. The sample is collected into a specially prepared stainless steel canister and the canister is transported into the lab for analysis, where data is recorded. Analysis of all samples must be done within thirty (30) days of sampling date.
The analysis consists of a known volume of sample directed from the canister through a solid multi-sorbent concentrator. The VOC’s are thermally desorbed into a multi-sorbent concentrator. The VOC’s the thermally desorbed into a multi-sorbent trap and then thermally desorbed into the GC-MS for analysis.
