Airmetrics MiniVol TAS
Ambient Air Monitor

The MiniVol™ Tactical Air Sampler (TAS) is a portable ambient air sampler for particulate matter that can also be configured for sampling various air toxics. While not a reference method sampler, the mass concentrations of the MiniVol™ TAS gives results that closely agree with reference method concentrations. Both accurate and precise, the battery operated, lightweight MiniVol™ TAS is ideal for sampling at remote sites or areas without power network. The MiniVol™ TAS features a 7-day programmable timer, a constant flow control system, an elapsed time totalizer, rechargeable battery packs, and an all-weather enclosure.
