​Teledyne Tekmar Introduces the Lumin Purge and Trap Concentrat​or. 

The next generation Purge and Trap Concentrator for Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) sample preparation analysis.

Mason, OH – March 1, 2016 - Teledyne Tekmar introduces the Lumin Purge and Trap Concentrator (PTC).  The Lumin is used as a sample preparation tool for the analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). For the past 40 years, Tekmar has been producing quality purge and trap instruments for environmental labs around the world, and that tradition continues today with the new Lumin Purge and Trap Concentrator.

"The Lumin is our newest stand-alone concentrator, and not only continues our tried and true innovations, but also incorporates several new advances that make it the fastest, simplest, and most reliable concentrator in our line-up," said Jacob Rebholz, VOC Product Line Manager for Teledyne Tekmar. "The Lumin is poised to take Tekmar into the next decade as the leading provider of purge and trap concentrators on the market."

The following are just some of the benefits the Lumin PTC provides:

  • Electronic Mass Flow Controller (MFC) allows for use with either Helium or Nitrogen. This patented MFC has the ability to vary flow rates in different modes which increases sample throughput
  • Ultra-low carryover
  • Superior water management
  • Proprietary trapping material allows for excellent desorption efficiency
  • Automated leak checking
  • Sample logging ensures data integrity
  • Foam detection and prevention options
  • Software control allows for built-in diagnostics and self-testing

The Lumin Purge and Trap Concentrator is the ideal solution for drinking water and waste water applications: USEPA Methods 502.1, 502.2, 524.2, 524.3, 524.4, 503.1, 601, 602, 603, 624, 8010, 8015, 8020, 8021, 8030, 8240, 8260, ASTM and Standard Methods and Massachusetts VPH and GRO Methods.
