Soil sampling equipment earns an En Core
May 08 2019
QED Environmental Systems have launched their new En Core® Soil Sampler. As with other products in QED’s highly respected and popular soil sampling product line, the En Core sampler is a user-friendly device, designed to collect, store and deliver soil samples to the lab without contamination. The sampler uses an airtight design to prevent loss of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Contamination of the sample is prevented via the unique VOC-proof zip-seal bag that doubles as the sample shipment container.
In addition to being easy to use, the En Core Sampler avoids many of the problems associated with historical VOC soil collection methods such as bulk sampling without sample preservation and field preservation sampling that requires methanol and sodium bisulphate preservation. En Core samples are prepared in the laboratory rather than in the field, thereby assuring a more consistent and accurate analysis and result.
David Kaminski, Senior Vice President at QED, said: “The En Core Sampler is the flagship product in our range of high spec soil sampling products, designed to provide the most accurate soil VOC samples in an easy-to-use single-use tool. With a minimal amount of training, it requires much less time for sample collection, in turn enabling more samples to be gathered during the day when compared to other sampling methods.”
The En Core Sampler is the best alternative to field preservation and is available in 5 and 25 gram sizes, the sample and container meet ASTM D4547 requirements for VOC retention during the permitted hold time. Other key features of the product include no handling of preservative in the field, no shipping restrictions, a long shelf-life with no expiration and shipping of samples to the lab via a proprietary VOC-proof bag. The En Core Sampler is now available from QED’s worldwide network of distributors.
