The MegaVol is capable of a very high flow rate (150m3/hr) the increased flow rate allows representative particulate samples to be collected in shorter time periods (more samples collected per week) or to collect a larger quantity in the same time period (especially for trace levels) than a standard high volume sampler.
The MegaVol is therefore ideally suited for sampling particulates that make up a small percentage of the total sample (heavy metals, radioactive particulates etc.) and provides laboratories with sufficient material to perform quantitative and qualitative analysis.
Optional attachments allow the sampler to measure wind speed and direction which can then be used to trigger sector selectable sampling (e.g. fence-line monitoring).
The sampler software can also double as a remotely accessible data logger for simple weather monitoring (wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity and rainfall).
