ITO coated glass comes with the TCO (Transparent Conductive...
Air sampling is a scientific procedure which aims to collect samples of the ambient air in indoor or outdoor locations. Tedlar bags are useful for air sampling when the concentration of the gas or compound to be analyzed is too less for conventional measuring instruments. Using Tedlar bags you can easily collect, store and transport the air samples for detailed analysis at a well-equipped laboratory. These are the types of air samples that are collected in Tedlar bags:VOC...

Today, numerous types of industries and educational institutes need to perform an analysis of the ambient air in different locations and conditions. Using Tedlar bags is one of the most common and effective ways to collect these air samples. Air samples need to be collected when conventional detection instruments are unable to detect minute concentrations of various types of:VOC (Volatile Organic Compound)
CO (Carbon Monoxide)
H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide)
SH6 (Sulfur Hexafluoride)
techi2019-05-12T01:41:24+05:30Guide to Air Sampling with Tedlar Bags
Air sampling is one of the essential procedures in numerous industries all over the world. Governmental regulations, research, and development require sampling the ambient air (indoor/outdoor) for various purposes. When not being used for R&D, air sampling is done to check the indoor air quality for the health and safety of workers and residents in a building.Why use Tedlar Bags for Air Sampling?
Tedlar bags are renowned for being an ideal method for retaining...
GRAPHENE – STRONGER THAN STEEL BUT LIGHTER THAN STEEL
