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 test methods spanning over EPA, SW 846, TO compendium, and ASTM.

If you need specific 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 and lab equipment if you’d like to branch out on your lab supply and accessories.

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) then we strongly recommend that you use the self certified canisters for your sampling equipment. Torrent Lab provides both, self certified and batch certified canisters.

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 Lab 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.

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.

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.

If you are sampling soil for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), Torrent Lab can supply Encore and Terra Core soil sampling kits and accessories. These test kits offer an easy and accurate means to collect, store and deliver soil samples.

Torrent Lab rents high-volume and low-volume certified rate pumps to suit your project. Please contact Torrent Lab’s project management team for further assistance in providing you with the best equipment and general lab supplies for your needs.
