The new XC-53 from Apex Instruments is designed as a low-cost entry-level metering console for isokinetic sampling. The console features our advanced Peak 32 microcontroller module (MCM) for measuring and displaying stable pressures and temperatures. The transflective LCD screen displays the elapsed time, the pitot velocity pressure (∆P), the venturi sample flow pressure (∆H) and the temperature of the selected thermocouple. The rotary switch monitors up to 6 different temperatures. The sample volume is displayed via the mechanical totalizer. The coarse and fine valves are used to control the sample flow rate and to adjust the vacuum during leak checks. The quick-connects provide convenient connections for the sample vacuum line and the pitot tubes.

The XC-53 isokinetic source sampler console allows the operator to monitor gas velocities, temperatures, pressures, sample flow rates and volumes for maintaining isokinetic sampling conditions. The Source Sampler system is easily adapted to test for a wide range of pollutants from stationary sources, such as particulate matter including PM 2.5 and PM10 fractions, metals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins/ furans, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and many more pollutants with adaptations of this basic isokinetic test method.
The Peak 32 microcontroller module utilizes a backlit, sunlight readable screen, an easy-to-use 4-button keypad, and sensors for measuring temperatures and pressures. The Peak 32 MCM also allows for user-adjustable damping for stable display of the ∆P and ∆H values. A USB interface is used for sensor calibration and firmware updates.
