Altair Sonda Prelievo Aria su Mezzi TCR Tecora Ambiente

ALTAIR is the innovative sampling system designed by TCR Tecora® to take air samples in accordance with DM 30/03/2017 “Quality assurance procedures to verify compliance with the quality of ambient air measurements, carried out at measuring network stations”.

ALTAIR manages the temperature by means of a thermoregulator with set-point settable by the operator and the main sampling flow automatically.

ALTAIR is available in the ALTAIR+ version which, thanks to a drying technology well established in gas analysis, allows the dehumidification of the sample in order to avoid any stagnation of condensation that could compromise the gas analysis.

A decrease in ozone measurements during the summer period of about 20-30 ppb it is recognized due to the formation of condensation in traditional heated sampling lines. ALTAIR is designed to overcome this problem by using a sampling line with a double NAFION™.

The sampling line is therefore maintained at programmable temperature and humidity.

Altair Main Features

  • Made entirely of inert material - PTFE;
  • Available in PTFE + NAFION™ version for correct air sampling even in conditions of high humidity;
  • Extreme ease of use;
  • Base 8 gas outlets; also available in version from 10 to 20 gas outlets;
  • Measurement of gas temperature with thermo measurement of the sample by means of a heated thermo controlled line;
  • Humidity control option: The humidity sensor monitors the humidity of the sample and activates the humidity control system to prevent condensation in the sampling tubes to the analyzers;
  • Easy maintenance of gas withdrawal manifold and gas withdrawal line;
  • High prevalence tangential fan;
  • In-line flow sensor for constant control of the air intake system complete with digital contact for immediate signaling of alarm status;
  • Heating activation led;
  • Alarm signalling led with D/O contact for remote control;
  • RS-485 communication - remote control;
  • Self-contained intake system capable of ensuring a residence time of sampled air in the sampling system of less than 3 seconds.
