Pharmagraph active air samplers. Pharmagraph offer a range of precision active air samplers for automated microbial monitoring applications in GMP facilities. A dedicated VF8023 controller module drives each Air Sampler and can be used independently or in conjunction with enVigil software. The unit can be set up for continuous or intermittent sampling of 1 cubic meter. With intermittent sampling it provides a programmable number of shorter samples spread over a longer period to make up the 1 cubic meter volume. Intermittent sampling is often used to reduce the number of interventions during a production process. The Air Samplers come in a variety of versions with a large number of permutations allowing you to choose the spare part appropriate to your installation.
- Stainless Steel 316 Construction
- 100 LPM Controlled Flow Rate
- Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide Tolerant
- Autoclave Tolerant Head
The basic parts consist of a perforated head that allows air to be drawn in over the sample plate and a body (base) that incorporates the motorized impeller that draws the air in. The base is available in two mounting versions: a pedestal base for free standing locations or a Tri-Clamp base for integration within machines. The pedestal base uses a Lemo style connector for quick connection/disconnection, while the Tri-Clamp base has an integral cable.
A pre-formed cable assembly is available for the pedestal base, while the Tri-Clamp base generally requires a custom cable to be completed on-site. The head and base types must be matched and are available in two types: standard screw head and bayonet head for easier removal. A protective cover is also available which is suitable for both screw and bayonet heads. It should be noted that the flow rate itself is determined by the associated VF8023 Air Sampler controller, not the Air Sampler components.
