Available to rent for dust monitoring applications the Gilian air personal sampling pumps provides industrial hygienists and safety managers with a tried and true air sampling system for determining worker exposure to particulate, gases or vapors. These comprehensive three-in-one samplers perform filter cassette, single or multiple sorbent tube sampling with constant flow accuracy.
The ultra-compact GilAir 5RC is a versatile pump used for sampling airborne particulates, aerosols and toxic vapors/gases. The GilAir 5RC has three operating modes: constant high flow for filter sampling; constant low flow (with optional Constant Flow Low Flow Module) for single-tube sampling; and constant pressure, mult-flow (with optional Constant Flow Constant Pressure Module) for single or multiple tube sampling. The optional flow modules just attach to the pump.
A GILIAN Personal Air Sampling System is worn by a worker during the work shift to determine exposure to ambient particulates, gases, or vapors. It draws a carefully controlled volume of air and contaminants through collection media over the period. The media is then sent to a laboratory for analysis, resulting in a calculated level of exposure.
This is the most important feature of any sampling pump, and is standard on all GILIANÂ® Pump models (except BDX-II). It assures pulsation-free flow is maintained within Â±5% of the initial set point, even with varying back pressures from flow restrictions or buildup of material on the filter.
These lights tell you when the battery pack is fully charged, assuring a minimum of 8 hours of service over the operating range.
Clock pump models have a digital display with elapsed time, including a Run/Hold function to pause and resume sampling. This option is available for all GILIANÂ® pump models except BDX-II.
Another option available on most models is a programmable timer which can be used to start or stop the pump at preset time intervals or to program a delayed start.
A rotameter with graduated LPM scale is standard on all models except LFS-113 and GilAir II, giving you an easy way to visually inspect to make sure the pump is maintaining the required flow rate throughout the sampling period.
The fault light indicator is activated when the pump attempts to operate outside Â±5% of the required flow rate, such as from low battery, blocked tubing or filter, or other severe flow restriction. If fault condition persists for 30-60 seconds, pump automatically shuts down and freezes the timer. Units with timer display preserve run time on the display, ensuring a valid sampling result. If fault condition is cleared before shutdown, the pump resumes normal sampling and fault light goes out. GILIAN Pumps offer this fault feature while in constant low flow mode.
A cover plate is set in place over the control panel with a single screw, protecting flow control settings and off-on switch from inadvertently being changed during sampling period.
These modules can be quickly added to most high flow GILAIR pumps to adapt them to the lower flow rates required for sorbent tube sampling. Also available is a multiflow low flow module, which maintains constant pressure and allows sampling with multiple sorbent tubes, each with an independently set flow rate.
This feature makes pump suitable not only for conventional pull-through sampling media but also for bag sampling and other pressure applications.
This feature protects pump from dirt and debris and is externally mounted on the pump, making it easy to visually inspect the filter. Filter replacement requires the removal of just four screws. Built-in moisture trap helps prevent moisture from entering and damaging the pump chamber, such as moisture carryover from impingers.
Twelve month warranty is standard, guaranteeing all pumps against any defects in parts and/or workmanship.
These sealed battery packs provide approximately 8 to 10 hours of reliable operation on a single charge. They may be charged in place on the pump or easily detached for separate charging or for quick field change in a safe area. Packs are intrinsically safe, as they are UL listed. They include a current limit circuit for explosion protection.
Clip is extra wide to provide maximum comfort to wearer and prevent the pump from tilting.
This shielding helps to make sure ambient radio and electromagnetic interference from plant operations donâ€™t affect the pumpâ€™s flow control and timer circuit functions, degrading the accuracy of your sampling.
The AirCon-2 sampler is a high volume unit with an extended flow range, designed for collecting particulate in a given plant area. It is ideal for asbestos background and clearance sampling, following NIOSH, OSHA, or EPA methodology, and for ambient dust monitoring. The AirCon-2 System is available in a a programmable version that operates off either AC or battery power. It comes with an adjustable tripod mast and connecting hose to hold the filter cassette at the proper height and isolate the filter from the vibration of the unit. The cassette and filter media must be ordered separately. All Samplers are warranted for one full year.
The touchpad and LCD display on the front of this DC powered unit allows the user to program as many as three custom timing routines for unattended sampling up to 99 hours. The program feature can be used to control starts and stops to the sampling run, as well as delays, holds, and number of cycles.
Programmable units include an instant fault function. When the unit is operated out of its performance envelope, the AirCon-2 sampler will terminate the sampling run and lock in the time. A flashing word
The ultimate personal air sampling pump delivering enhanced performance, greater versatility, and superior design and comfort.
The Widest Flow Range of Any Personal Air Sampling Pump
Personal Industrial Hygiene Air Sampling PumpThe GilAir Plus features wide dynamic flow and pressure ranges to address all personal air sampling methods with flow ranges between 20 and 5,000 cc/min. With patent pending QuadModeSM air sampling technology, the GilAir Plus can perform both high-flow constant pressure and constant flow (450-5,000 cc/min) and low-flow constant pressure and constant flow (20-499 cc/min) with a single pump without external adaptors. It’s like getting two pumps in one.
PC ApplicationGilAir Plus is a smart air sampling pump that provides ambient or standard temperature and pressure corrected display (STP model) and data-logging for up to 16 sampling events (STP and Datalog model). The pump has high back pressure capability of up to 40" H2O in high flow and up to 25" H2O in low flow. An automatic self check system ensures sample accuracy. In the event of a fault condition, the pump’s selectable automatic fault recovery feature attempts to restart the pump up to 10 times every 3 minutes to determine if the fault condition has been cleared.
Ease of Use
Easy-to-read, backlit displaysAn intuitive menu, keypad interface and large, easy-to-read back-lit display makes adjusting pump settings quick and easy. Once the pump is set up, the keypad can be locked to prevent tampering. Convenient and innovative SmartCalSM feature provides automatic pump calibration.
One-third smaller than traditional personal air sampling pumps and weighing less than 21 oz. (595 g), the GilAir Plus provides superior operator comfort. An integrated belt clip securely attaches the pump in a horizontal position, allowing workers a full range of motion to perform a wide variety of tasks without interference or discomfort.
Multi-pump DocksThe GilAir Plus dock provides charging and communication functions for the STP and data-logging models. Once docked, the PC application allows users to review datalogs, generate sampling reports, manage sampling programs, and create pump set-up profiles that expedite deployment of large pump fleets. The SmartCalSM feature uses the dock as a communication link between appropriate calibration devices and the GilAir Plus. SmartCalSM automates calibration and records pre and post sample calibrations in the pump’s datalog.
Barometric Pressure Compensation
When sampling at altitudes of up to 8,000 feet above or 8,000 feet below sea level, GilAir Plus has the capability of automatically correcting the flow rate for altitude changes to maintain constant flow accuracy of +/- 5% over this barometric pressure range. This feature permits GilAir Plus calibration at ground level and sampling at high elevations or deep mines without loss of flow accuracy or the need to calculate and use manual correction factors. GilAir Plus is the only personal air sampling pump with this capability.
