XC-30B MercSampler™ Automated Console

XC-30B MercSampler™ Automated Console

The XC-30B MercSampler™ Console, designed especially for performing Method 30B, simplifies sampling requirements by automating data acquisition, sample flow adjustments, leak checks, calculations, temperature control, and calibrations. Data is easily transferred to a Microsoft Windows Based PC through USB Interface. The XC-30B MercSampler™ performs dual sorbent trap sampling at flow rates up to 2.0 lpm and can be operated with your choice of probes and gas conditioning systems, including our popular SGC-4000HGP Stirling Gas Conditioner.
