GAS-604D Global Air Sampling System
The GAS-604D Series Air Sampling Systems are designed for remote unattended continuous air sampling applications. The GAS-604D Series Air Samplers feature a brushless motor with electronic motor speed control that maintains a user selectable flow rate. The flow rate range attainable through the filter media is dependent upon the air porosity of the filter media. Flow rates as high as 85 m3/hr (50 CFM) are attainable with glass fiber filter media. The GAS-604D Series design accommodates rapid field service and component replacement.
For durability and weather resistance, the system is housed in a freestanding powder coat painted aluminum enclosure. The sample air is drawn in under the eaves of the hinged lid from all four sides and is exhausted near the bottom of the enclosure. The locking swing door on the enclosure provides convenient access for servicing the equipment inside. A lockable latch on the top cover restricts unauthorized tampering with the filter holder.
The electronic flow control measurement sub-system of the GAS-604D Series provides an operator selectable reference standard corrected flow measurement and a constant flow of air through the filter medium. The air velocity is measured by a precision-machined DP sensor. The controller can be readily set to any sampling flow rate between 17 - 85 m3/hr (10 – 50 CFM). The flow rate obtainable depends on the filter paper air resistance and dimensions. The bright VFD readout displays multiple air sampling information including current flow rate, average flow rate, current temperature and totalized volume. The filter holder can be custom designed to accommodate many large filter size and type. The GAS-604D standard model utilizes a 4”D (102 mm) filter. Optional software is available to download air-sampling data via an RS-232 port. The software provides a monitoring report, file creation and setup via a laptop computer.
Basic components of the system are modular and independently serviceable. Sample flow rate can be set between 17 to 85 m3/hr (10 – 50 CFM). The standard filter holder has the dimensions 4 inch D (102 mm).

Automatic Flow Control:
The system microprocessor monitors flow rate relative to the operator selectable preset Reference T and P corrected flow rate established during the setup procedure and electronically adjusts the electronic motor speed adjustment, if necessary, to maintain the flow within ± 3.0% of setting. The microprocessor computes the Reference flow rate by correcting the measured values of temperature and pressure to the reference values.
