The 566 Organic Vapor monitor is our most versatile and popular organic vapor badge. The 566 utilizes the popular ChemDisk II configuration and a flexible, inert charcoal wafer. Smaller and much easier to use than other badges on the market. The 76 hole sampling grid allows for sampling rates about 8 mL/min. The 8 hour reporting limits vary from chemical to chemical (See our Sampling Guide), but most are in the 0.1 ppm range, well below most OSHA PELs and NIOSH RELs. In addition, the badge also has much more sampling capacity than other badge and tube methods.
Assay Technology also has two other Organic Vapor badges for more extreme environments. The 546 High Capacity Monitor is used when monitoring an environment for chemicals with high PELs (200 ppm and higher). The 525 Trace Air Organic Vapor Monitor is used for STEL and IAQ monitoring where low reporting limits are essential and low concentrations are expected. For assistance in choosing which is best for your situation, use our Guide for selecting which Organic Vapor badge you should use..
Please Note: The 566 monitor can NOT be used for acetic acid monitoring. See our Acetic Acid Monitor: 543.
