Summa Canister Technology

The summa canisters are the latest development in air sampling technology. Eurofins Spectrum Analytical utilizes canisters with "Silcosteel" treated lining. The Silcosteel increases inertness to improve analysis of many difficult compounds such as silver and polar compounds. These canisters also include Silcosteel valves and flow controllers to ensure that the sample does not come in contact with the more reactive surface of stainless steel that is the traditional material of summa canisters and flow controllers. Each container may be equipped with a gauge attached tot he valve to allow for accurate measurement and recording of canister pressure both before and after sampling. This alleviates any guessing in the field concerning collection of adequate sample volume.
