PAMS HANDS ON LESSON:
OpenLab EZChrom CDS & the Markes/Agilent AutoGC

Monday, 13 August, 2018 | 2:30 PM

Join Orsat’s Carol Meyer for a hands-on lesson in using the Merlin EZSequence generator with the OpenLab EZChrom CDS and the Markes/Agilent AutoGC at the upcoming 2018 EPA National Ambient Air Monitoring Conference. As an important part of the Orsat AutoGC implementation, the Merlin’s EZSequence software transforms the basic Markes/Agilent hardware into an AutoGC by automating routine quality control sample runs. Carol’s lesson will include a preview of the EZChrom method including peak identification, retention time optimization, and instrument calibration. Best practices in data archiving and digital site access to ensure data accuracy and completeness will also be discussed. For more information on the Orsat’s fully automated Markes/Agilent AutoGC system, please visit: https://orsat.com/autogcsystem/.

And if you have any questions or thoughts after the lesson

Carol MeyerCarol Meyer has been actively involved with PAMS monitoring since the initial 1993 Coastal Ozone Assessment for Southeastern Texas (COAST) study. Orsat, LLC has provided ambient monitoring services to both state and industry, and currently operates 25 PAMS AutoGC monitoring sites in Texas for the TCEQ, UT CEER and AECOM. Using both the PerkinElmer Ozone Precursor system and the Agilent GC System with a Markes Unity 2 thermal desorber, Orsat has developed a fully automated application for the continuous monitoring of 56 NMHCs hourly.

About the National Ambient Air Monitoring Conference The Ambient Air Monitoring Group (AAMG), in cooperation with the National Association for Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) and the Association of Air Pollution Control Agencies (AAPCA) will host The National Ambient Air Monitoring Conference, August 13 – 16, 2018 in Portland, Oregon. The conference is intended to provide a national and international forum for EPA, State, local, tribal, international and other agencies who are involved in implementing criteria pollutant and air toxics monitoring programs. This conference will provide a forum for discussing the implementation of ambient air monitoring changes to the monitoring networks as a result of revisions to the NAAQS and ambient air monitoring regulations and a forum for data users to discuss and share information learned as a result of the data analysis and how this data is managed in our Air Quality Data System.

The EPA deadline for installation of AutoGCs at NCore sites is less than a year away. Don't miss this opportunity to speak with the AutoGC experts and get an up close look at the AutoGC system currently monitoring 56 non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHCs) 24 hours a day seven days a week at over 35 sites across Texas. All that raw data is ideal for modeling, but difficult to handle when precision and accuracy are paramount. Orsat can boast over 20 years of experience with continuous unattended ambient air VOC monitoring including its earliest implementation in the State of Texas Coastal Oxidant Assessment for Southeast Texas (COAST) program in 1994. Today, Orsat’s services encompass all aspects of site operation from deployment to operator training and application assistance in topics ranging from Microsoft Windows operation to gas chromatographic theory.

Over the past two decades, Orsat has deployed over 40 sites and currently maintains over 35 sites in the state of Texas for both public and private industry. In particular, Orsat has worked closely with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to monitor air quality in the Barnett and Eagle Ford Shale Formations. Orsat is a State of Texas certified Historically Underutilized Business.
