Page 14 15 1 Introduction 1.1 Description The HiVol 3000 Particulate Sampler provides a flexible platform for sampling of PM 10, PM 2.5 or TSP particulate and for monitoring basic meteorological parameters. The sampler is microprocessor based and features internal data logging of flow and meteorological parameters. The HiVol 3000 is designed to operate from a mains power supply. Refer to Section 2 and for important power connection details. The HiVol 3000 includes the facility to monitor wind speed and direction, using an optional external wind sensor. Wind speed and direction data are averaged and stored in internal memory, and may be used as triggers for conditional sampling. The HiVol 3000 also has the ability to be remotely triggered by an optional external sensor or instrument. The trigger signal can be used for remote control or conditional sampling. The HiVol 3000 also incorporates a time clock and programmable timer enabling multiple times based sampling programs to be configured. The HiVol 3000 internal data logger stores time based data averages at user selectable intervals. Data stored in the HiVol may be downloaded via the RS-232C serial port. The HiVol 3000 is extremely quiet allowing it to be used in residential sampling locations to assess human exposure to particulate matter (PM), and is housed in a weatherproof enclosure for outdoor sampling in a range of environments. Refer to Appendix A for typical noise levels. 1.2 Features Active volumetric flow control.

Refer to for more details. The US EPA concluded that particles capable of penetration through the upper respiratory tract could deposit in the tracheobronchial and alveolar regions of the human body and could have adverse health effects. In 1987 the US EPA promulgated a PM 10 size-specific air quality standard for ambient particulate matter for the protection of human health. Page 18 19 In 1997 the US EPA revised their national ambient air quality standards again to include PM 2.5. The PM 2.5 standard now replaces TSP and PM 10 as the primary ambient air particulate pollution parameter in the United States. Monitoring of atmospheric air quality in the United States for compliance to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (specified in US 40 CFR Part 50) requires the use of either reference or equivalent methods. For PM 10 the reference method is contained in the Code of Federal Regulations - Appendix J - Reference Method for the Determination of Particulate Matter as PM 10 in the Atmosphere Ecotech HiVol Background High volume air samplers are used to collect samples of air-borne matter for subsequent analysis. Generally, high volume air sampling is a technique that employs a gravimetric method for the determination of suspended particulate matter in the atmosphere. The term gravimetric implies a weight measurement. The technique of high volume air sampling developed in the United States during the 1940's. Early HiVols (generic term for High Volume Air Samplers) were comprised of modified household vacuum cleaners with 100 mm diameter filters. During the 1950's the design was altered to incorporate the use of 200 x 250 mm filters to permit continuous 24 hour sampling. Until the 1980's the HiVol sampler was used solely to collect data on total suspended particulate matter (TSP). The technique is known as High Volume Size Selective Inlet PM 10 sampling, and monitoring is aimed at providing information on particles capable of penetrating to the thoracic region of the human body. The inlet hoods can be easily identified - the TSP inlet is shaped like a pyramid and the SSI type is cylindrical in shape. The SSI will be identified as PM 10 or PM 2.5. The airborne suspended particles that pass through the inlet are collected on a pre-weighed filter, during a pre-determined sampling period that is programmed into the HiVol by the operator. The filter collects the airborne particles for subsequent analysis. The HiVol controls the flow-rate and records the sampling duration and volume of air that has been sampled. Acceptable levels have been established to govern the amount of airborne particulate of a particular size and composition that may pose a health hazard to humans. Page 19 20 HiVol 3000 User Manual Sampling Method The HiVol 3000 is designed primarily as a particulate sampler. The HiVol pump and flow controller draws a constant flow rate of ambient air through a specially prepared filter. The air-borne suspended particles are collected on the pre-weighed filter over a pre-determined period. After sampling the filter is removed and re-weighed to determine the concentration of particulate matter (TSP, PM 10 or PM 2.5 ). The total volume of air can be calculated from the flow-rate multiplied by the sampling time. The display on the control panel of the HiVol 3000 indicates the volumetric flow rate of air, and computes the sample volume corrected to STP conditions which means that no additional calculations are required during normal operation. This gives the HiVol 3000 an advantage over other hi-vol types that control mass flow rate. Volumetric flow control ensures that the size selective inlet is always operating at the desired flow rate. Automatic correction to reference conditions eliminates average seasonal temperature and pressure corrections. This eliminates two sources of error that could otherwise introduce significant inaccuracies, and additional calculations. The STP Reference conditions can be programmed into the HiVol. Due to the simple inlet shape of the TSP sampler the particle cut-point is not precise and may be influenced by wind speed, wind direction and sampler flow-rates. The TSP inlet will prevent unusually large particles and insects being collected on the filter. The size-selective inlet is of the impactor type. The particles in the air are accelerated through multiple acceleration nozzles. The PM 10 or PM 2.5 particles, however, are smaller and having less momentum, remain entrained in the air-flow and pass to the filter, where they are collected. The symmetrical design of the SSI overcomes the effect of wind direction and the inlet design makes the collection efficiency independent of wind speeds up to 36 kilometres per hour. Page 22 23 1.6 Instrument Description Sampler Housing The HiVol housing and inlet hood are constructed in aluminium, providing a light-weight and noncorrosive housing, even in the event of exposed metalwork. The enclosure comprises three main parts: the inlet hood, the outer enclosure and the electronic enclosure (housed inside the outer enclosure.) The HiVol 3000 is constructed from marine grade anodised aluminium, which provides good durability in most environments. Two front doors are fitted. The lower door cannot be opened with the upper door in the closed position. A keyed lock is fitted to the upper door. The lower door is also retained by a sliding latch, which engages a slot in the side panel. Slide to the left to retain the door in the upright position Blower Motor The blower is driven by a squirrel-cage induction motor, and is constructed of cast aluminium achieving a weight saving and also providing corrosion resistance. Silencers are mounted on both the inlet and outlet, which reduces noise levels considerably. (Further noise reduction can be achieved using the optional exhaust muffler refer to Section 2.4.3). The blower is equipped with sealed-groove ball bearings, which do not need lubrication. The grease filling is sufficient for the whole service life of the bearings Flow Path The inlet funnel for the sampler is constructed of fibre glass, which provides a gradual change in flow geometry ensuring an even pressure gradient and avoiding flow resistance and noise. The design also enables equal flow-rates through the whole cross section of the filter. Following the funnel, a joining sleeve is provided to allow for easy access to the flow sensor and to aid in removal of the blower motor. All tubing is PVC. Fittings are available for connection of an external exhaust duct. Page 23 24 HiVol 3000 User Manual 1.8 Figure 3 Flow path schematic Flow Sensor The flow sensor is a precision mass flow sensor - which reads the flow-rate and converts it to an electronic signal. This is connected to the electronics enclosure, from where the flow sensor signal performs two functions. One is to indicate the current flow-rate of air, via the LCD display, and the other is to provide feedback to the flow control circuit. The HiVol Model 3000 uses a mass flow sensor located within a parallel by-pass tubing. An orifice is used to control the amount of flow through the by-pass and then the mass flow sensor is used to calculate the total flow in the instrument. The device has been designed to be easily removed and replaced and must be serviced by Ecotech Flow Control Flow control is achieved by a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) (sometimes called an inverter or variable frequency drive.) The drive controls the speed of the blower motor based on a signal from the microprocessor. The drive automatically corrects the flow rate of air so that when the filter becomes loaded with particulate matter, the flow-rate remains constant. The time required to reach the correct flow is typically less than 15 seconds. Page 24 25 At initial start-up, the HiVol may take up to a minute to reach the correct flow rate Electronics Enclosure The instrument electronics enclosure houses most of the electronic components. The LCD display, controller, and variable speed drive are located in this enclosure which has a weatherproof seal. This box is sealed and may only be accessed by qualified service personnel Control Panel CAUTION Hazardous voltages exist within the enclosure. Access by skilled service personnel only. The control panel is part of the instrument electronics enclosure and houses, the digital display, keypad and Serial port. The panel is coated in a scratch-resistant splash-proof plastic, which can be cleaned with mild detergent and water Power Inlet Refer to Section for important Power Connection information. The power inlet to the sampler is via a 10 Amp, single phase industrial duty inlet. The inlet has a waterproof rating of IP65. One inlet socket is provided with the sampler and this should be used with the orange weatherproof coupling. The electrical circuit should be protected by a circuitbreaker Filter Cassette The filter cassette is comprised of a mesh screen base, and top covering frame. With the filter correctly installed in the cassette, sample air will pass only through the filter to enter the sampler. Use of the cassette allows for filter changes during adverse weather. The filter cassette can be removed to a protected location, the exposed filter removed, a new filter installed and the loaded cassette can then be returned to the sampling site for fitting to the sampler Temperature Sensor The HiVol 3000 temperature sensor is located within the chassis and plugs directly into the entry tube. The temperature sensor measures the temperature of the gas flow, using them for volumetric flow control. Page 25 26 HiVol 3000 User Manual 1.8 This page is intentionally blank. Page 26 27 2. Installation 2.1 Initial Check 1. Upon receipt of the sampler, check the packing slip to ensure all items have been delivered, and inspect the sampler for damage during transit. The inlet hood (TSP inlet or Size Selective Inlet) is packaged separately so the complete sampler will generally consist of two containers. Notify both the shipping company and Ecotech immediately if damage has occurred. Retain the packaging materials as the container has been specially designed to protect the sampler during transit and will be needed should service be required in the future. 2. Prior to shipping the HiVol to the monitoring site, it is recommended that the equipment is completely assembled and field staff are familiarised with its operation including field calibration, filter changing and maintenance. 3. The HiVol can be tested before being fully installed on site. To begin with, check the funnel assembly on the upper surface of the sampler for packing material or other foreign objects. Remove the filter cassette from the packaging and place the filter cassette within the cassette locaters on top of the sampler. 4. Ensure the exhaust outlet on the side of the sampler is not obstructed and connect the sampler to the power supply, making sure that the supply voltage and frequency are correct for the sampler. 5. Turn the sampler on and observe the display. If the blower operates and the display shows a flow rate, the unit will most probably be ready for initial calibration. Note: The sampler should not be run unattended without being correctly mounted. Refer to Section for mounting details. Note: The HiVol 3000 is compatible with inlets from the previous Ecotech model 2000 High Volume Air Sampler. Inlets are interchangeable without modification to the sampler. 1. Remove the two bolts and washers, located at the top of the back legs of the sampler, which will act as the pivot points for the inlet hood. 2. Remove the nut and bolt from the threaded insert on the stay, which extends from the small slot on top of the sampler. The stay supports the inlet hood during filter changes and calibrations. 3. Place the inlet hood on top of the sampler with the two mounting holes towards the rear of the sampler, lined up with the pivot screw holes. This may require moving the inlet hood to align the holes with the slots. 4. Insert the pivot screws through the holes in the inlet hood and sampler. The bolts should not be tightened at this stage. 5. Raise the inlet hood and insert the cassette on top of the sampler, if not already fitted. The thumb-screws above the control panel should be screwed up into the inlet hood until finger tight. 6. Apply sufficient down-ward pressure to the rear of the inlet hood to ensure a good seal between the size selective inlet and the filter cassette. Whilst applying this pressure, tighten the pivot bolts securing the inlet hood to the sampler. If fitted correctly, the inlet hood assembly will sit Page 28 29 horizontally and will exert even pressure on the filter cassette when secured. Figure 5 shows the correct alignment of the inlet hood on the sampler. 7. Check the cassette seals and check the pressure needed to tighten thumb screws and re-adjust the pivot bolts if required. Figure 5 HiVol hood attachment 8. Raise the inlet hood slightly and attach the support stay to the lid using the screw and nut supplied. The screw passes through the lid, then the nut, then into the stay. The bolt must go through the hole directly above the stay (not the one near the corner of the hood). 9. Tighten the nut against the threaded insert of the stay. The screw should be able to pivot when the lid is opened. Adjust if necessary. Figure 6 Attaching the support stay Page 29 30 HiVol 3000 User Manual Open the inlet hood and check that it opens freely. The stay is used to support the weight of the inlet hood during filter changes and calibration. The stay also prevents the lid from opening too far. The stay acts like a catch to prevent the lid accidentally falling. 11. Move the stay towards you to release the catch. Close the lid again and check that the cassette is evenly clamped when the thumbscrews are tightened. 12. Whenever the sampler needs to be transported, remove the inlet from the HiVol and pack the items separately in the original cartons PM 10 or PM 2.5 Size Selective Inlet (SSI) Assembly (Option) The SSI is packaged basically complete; only minor assembly is necessary. When removing the SSI from the shipping carton, take care not to damage or knock any part. Remove the cushioning material, lift the SSI from the carton and place it on the floor or on a workbench. Save the shipping container and packing material for future use. 1. Release the four inlet hook-catches and remove the top portion of the SSI. Do not substitute any other grease or oil without contacting the supplier; particle bounce characteristics may be affected by changing the viscosity of the grease. 4. Using only the plastic handles, return the greased collection shim (greased side up) to the sampler inlet and secure with the four shim clips. 5. Replace the top portion of the sampler inlet and secure with the hooks and catches. Note: The tension on the catches should be evenly distributed between the four catches.
