  • (1888PressRelease) July 01, 2013 - Environmental Source Samplers, Inc. (ESS) continues growth in the Asian market with the award of a recent government contract to provide isokinetic emissions sampling training to the Vietnam Department of Natural Resources and Environment (DONRE) - Thai Nguyen office. The Thai Nguyen province selected eleven (11) of their most qualified technicians to attend the ESS training seminar to further focus their Apex Instruments isokinetic sampling skills.

    Workshop instruction was led by ESS President Mark Looney, QSTI. The object of this 1-day seminar was to introduce basic isokinetic principles and source sampling skills to the DONRE technicians.

    This course assisted the students in their review of source testing and broadened their sampling skills. The workshop helped the student develop the ability to plan, guide, evaluate, and perform source-sampling measurements to determine rates of emission from stationary sources. The course also provided a cursory review of EPA Methods 1 through 5.

    The course provided the students with:
    The knowledge and nomenclature of the isokinetic stack testing equipment
    An understanding of why the prescribed methods are used
    A review of the basic operation of the isokinetic sampling equipment
    An introduction to the calibrations and calculations that are a part of the reference methods
    A field sampling exercise to demonstrate the knowledge of conducting/operating Method 5 Isokinetic sampling equipment.
