HAPSITE is the new field-portable gas chromatograph/mass
spectrometer (GC/MS) for easy and dependable on-site analysis of volatile organic
compounds (VOCs). Battery-powered, lightweight, and weatherproof, HAPSITE can speciate and
quantify VOCs in minutes, significantly reducing the cost, time, and difficulties of
HAPSITE provides confirmatory test results immediately
on-site, making it ideal for stationary source testing, hazardous-waste site
investigations, and emergency response. Engineered for the field, HAPSITE is designed to
be carried to the test site and to endure a harsh testing environment. Its critical
components are resiliently mounted to withstand the rough handling and shocks typical of
about 35 pounds, HAPSITE contains everything needed to acquire and analyze VOC samples in
the field. Its innovative direct-sampling system makes testing much easier, because it
eliminates the problems associated with conventional collecting, shipping, storing, and
analyzing of samples. Since HAPSITE provides verifiable test results on site, costly
retesting is eliminated.
HAPSITE is easy to use in the field. A technician selects a method, and HAPSITE sets and
monitors all the operating conditions, signaling when to start sampling. Completely
automatic, HAPSITE finishes the sampling process quickly and delivers more reliable
results which are displayed in simple terms on the instrument's front panel.
HAPSITE's Windows-based software allows customized data analysis and methods development.
To review data saved on the instrument's hard drive, download to a diskette or connect to
a PC. The software gives users the ability to modify or create new sampling, operating,
and analysis methods.
