The right supplies.
The right guidance.
From the right lab.
At Torrent, we have the experience and expertise to help you select the right methods, media, and lab supplies for your project, your methods, and your objectives. We’re here to help, every step of the way. Here’s some guidance to get you off on the right foot.
Torrent Lab provides 6L and 1L sampling canisters for soil vapor and ambient air analysis. If you are employing SIM (low-level analysis), we recommend 6L sampling canisters so that we can offer you the lowest possible reporting limits. Torrent Lab can provide SIM analysis with 1L sampling canisters, as well. If you are required SIM (lowest possible RLs), we strongly recommend using self-certified canisters for your sampling equipment. Torrent Lab provides self- and batch-certified canisters.
Tedlar® and other bags
When you need air sampling bags for convenience or non-regulatory testing, we provide Tedlar® Air Sampling Bags in a variety of sizes. If you are sampling for sulfur compounds, we recommend using inert canisters or regular Teflon-based bags or inert foil-based bags.
TO-17 thermal desorption tubes
Torrent Lab uses proprietary TO-17 thermal desorption tubes to suit your project-specific requirements. Torrent Lab can also provide self-certified and batch-certified thermal desorption tubes.
Sorbent test tubes
Torrent Lab stocks a wide array of sorbent test tubes and specific sampling equipment. We offer XAD-2 tubes, Chromosorb sorbent tubes, silica gel sorbent tubes, charcoal sorbent tubes, and more. Torrent Lab 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.
