Air Sampling Canister Availability

Pace provides a variety of air sampling devices including our proprietary ezCANS, easy-to-use air sampling canisters. ezCANS arrive fully assembled and are vacuum- and leak-checked. ezCANS virtually eliminates field failures. And, like our standard canisters, ezCANS include a quick disconnect capability for clients requiring heightened quality control.

All Pace Analytical sampling materials are certified clean and contaminant-free. Available materials include:

  • ezCANS (1L or 6L)
  • Quick Disconnect Canisters (1.4L)
  • Sampling Bags
  • Purge Manifolds
  • Flow Controllers and Restrictors (5-minutes to 7-days sampling)

Pace manufactures and maintains thousands of air sampling canisters in inventory, ensuring availability even during seasonal peaks of high demand.

Drop your samples off at one of our convenient lab locations or service centers or call us to request our courier or field sampling services

Vapor Intrusion Guidance Support

Vapor Intrusion is an area of growing concern as multiple states enact regulations in response to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) vapor intrusion guidance. According to the USEPA, vapor intrusion occurs when volatile chemicals migrate from contaminated groundwater or soil into an overlying building.

Because volatile chemicals can emit vapors through subsurface soil and into indoor air spaces, they need to be investigated. State and Federal guidelines suggest an approach that begins with simple screening and gradually progresses to a more complex, site-specific assessment. Pace Analytical has extensive experience in the implementation of USEPA Vapor Intrusion Guidance as well as state-level regulations.
