Lab Testing Supplies & Sampling Media
Torrent offers an array of supplies and media for your projects
It is important to select the right media/containers for your project-specific methods and testing objectives. There are literally hundreds of methods spanning over EPA, SW 846, TO compendium, and ASTM.
If you need assistance, Torrent Laboratory’s dedicated and knowledgeable customer-centric staff can offer guidance for selecting the right methods, media, and lab supplies. We can also suggest appropriate sampling logistics.
Torrent provides 6L and 1L sampling canisters for soil vapor and ambient air analysis. If you are employing SIM (low-level analysis), we recommend 6Lsampling canisters so that we can offer you the lowest possible reporting limits. Torrent can provide SIM analysis with 1L sampling canisters as well. If you are required SIM (lowest possible RLs) then we strongly recommend that you use the self certified canisters. Torrent provides both, self certified and batch certified canisters.
TEDLAR and OTHER BAGS
We recommend using canisters for your soil vapor and air monitoring projects, however, some time you may need to use air sampling bags either for convenience or non regulatory testing. Torrent offers Tedlar® Air Sampling Bags in a variety of sizes. If you are sampling for sulfur compounds, we recommend using either inert canister or regular Teflon-based bags or inert foil-based bags.
TO-17 THERMAL DESORPTION TUBES
Torrent uses proprietary TO-17 thermal desorption tubes to suit your project-specific requirements. Torrent can also provide self-certified and batch-certified thermal desorption tubes.
SORBENT TEST TUBES
Torrent stocks a wide array sorbent test tubes. We offer XAD-2 tubes, Chromosorb sorbent tubes, silica gel sorbent tubes, charcoal sorbent tubes, and more. Torrent can also customize test tubes for your project requirements. Our team can help you select the correct sorbent test tubes for capturing inorganic acid, cyanide, heavy metals, hexavalent chromium and more.
ENCORE AND TERRA CORE SAMPLING MEDIA
If you are sampling soil for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), Torrent can supply Encore and Terra Core soil sampling kits. These test kits offer an easy and accurate means to collect, store and deliver soil samples.
Torrent rents high-volume and low-volume certified rate pumps to suit your project. Please contact Torrent’s project management team for further assistance.
