Hydrogen Cyanide Passive Sampler

The Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) Passive Sampler is specified in OSHA Method 1015. The HCN sampler operates at a sampling rate of 28.4 ml/min and provides accurate HCN exposure results. The sampler design allows in-the-field loading of sorbent from vial to sampler housing before sampling and field transfer of sorbent from sampler to vial after sampling. Samples are extracted with water and analysed by ion chromatography/electrochemical detector.

Hydrogen Cyanide Passive Sampler
  • Lightweight miniature sampler for unobtrusive sampling
  • Suitable for 15 minute and 8 hour samples
  • Unique sampler design for direct transfer of sorbent into and out of the sampler

The HCN Passive Sampler is suitable for sampling in the following industries:

  • Steel
  • Electroplating
  • Mining
  • Chemical manufacturing
Sampling Rate    28.4 ml/min with a RSD (Relative Standard Deviation) of 4.4%
Validation Range    0.44 to 20 ppm
Analysis    Solvent extraction; ion chromatography (IC) with electrochemical detector (ELCM)
Storage    Before use: at 20°C (68°F) 
After use: Analyze as soon as possible. If delay is unavoidable store in refrigerator as a precaution.
