Auto-controlled volume air sampler – NuRMS EGS
The EGS advanced concept is designed to capture radioactive aerosols on filters with adjustable flow rates ranging from 5 to 140 m3/h. The flow rate is automatically regulated with increasing resistance of the clogged filter.
The principle of the EGS operation is based on a centrifugal high-velocity pump with a brushless asynchronous AC motor ensuring minimal maintenance of the system.
EGS is a compact device in a metallic case. Removable rubber feet allow comfortable installation on solid surfaces.
Inlet flange is mounted on the front panel, the power switch, Ethernet socket, RS232, AUX, USB connectors and power line socket are located on the rear side, exhaust flange is placed on the top of the unit and OLED display and keypad are located on instrument side.
- Additional information
EGS is a high-volume air sampling system used for capturing radioactive aerosols, dust and other air pollutants contained in the air.
Sampled air passes through removable filters that are subsequently analyzed in a laboratory to evaluate volume activities of captured particles.
This state of-the-air sampler is easy to operate and can be incorporated into various automated sampling systems.
