Grab Air samplers, available from Active Environmental Solutions are a line of handheld battery-operated sample pumps designed for air quality tester sampling applications.

Grab Air samplers are designed to fill sample bags at 1 litre per minute efficiently and reliably.

Designed for simple and user-friendly air quality tester sampling, the Grab Air samplers are simple ‘turn on and sample’ pumps operating on a disposable 9V alkaline battery with an LED indicating low battery status.

Grab Air sample pumps are recommended for sample bags up to 10 litres.

Bag sampling tips for effective air quality tester sampling

  • Only Teflon tubing and Teflon-lined septum must be used for bag sampling to prevent sample loss
  • Bags must be flushed thoroughly with purified air or nitrogen before use
  • Bags cannot be used to collect unstable or highly reactive compounds
  • Sample bags may not be shipped by air unless in a pressurised cargo cabin
  • When sampling for light-sensitive compounds, black-layered Tedlar bags must be used
  • When sampling for CO or CO2, SKC Foil Grab Bags (245 Series) are recommended
  • Long-term storage of compounds in Tedlar bags is not recommended as chemicals can adsorb onto the inside surface of the bag
  • O-ring in the sampling valve on SKC sample bags withstands temperatures up to 93.3ºC
  • No bag must be filled beyond 80% of its maximum volume capacity
