Yeah! It's bake off day again, we've had two days of cake sampling this week. Today was the turn of Caroline Mills who's part of our client relations team.

We were spoilt with flapjacks topped with chocolate and crunchy honeycomb, which were quirkily presented in cheerful paper bags.  Top marks for that idea.

Large capacity gas sample bags required for a large scale VOC testing project.

Large capacity gas sample bags required for a large scale VOC testing project.

We have recently supplied Tedlar® bags for VOC testing of in-cabin automotive components.  These needed to be tested for volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and carbonyl traces at elevated temperatures.

The customers wish list was:

  • A large capacity gas sample bag suitable for VOC testing.
  • The gas sample bag needed to be open on three sides, so the components to be tested could easily be inserted.
  • The customer needed the ability to seal the gas sample bag once the components were inside.
  • The gas sample bag needed to large enough and robust enough for re-use.
  • The gas sample bag needed to be suitable for temperature cycling.

Solution

The design of the bag, material choice, orientation of the PTFE connectors and the closure mechanism was decided between Adtech and the customer, to ensure the sample bag was easy to handle and that only minimal stress was applied to the bag around the connectors, as the sample was to be taken.

Tedlar® bags for emission, VOC, breath and landfill gas testing

Tedlar® bags for emission, VOC, breath and landfill gas testing

In critical environmental applications where contamination of either the bag or its contents must be kept to a minimum, our gas sampling bags are the perfect solution.

Designed and manufactured for this very purpose, our Tedlar bags are made from carefully selected fluoroplastic films and produced in extremely clean conditions.

For more specific applications, particularly emission, VOC, breath and landfill gas testing, why not try Adtech’s Tedlar bags.

Tedlar gas sampling bags & emission testing:

Our Tedlar gas sampling bags are suitable for the testing of gas, odour, automotive and landfill emissions.

Today, emission testing is vital for our health and wellbeing. VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) such as benzene, acetone, ethanol and formaldehyde are highly common but, if inhaled over a long period of time, run the risk of increasing your health problems. Studies have shown that exposure to VOC’s are particularly dangerous to those with asthma or a sensitivity to chemicals.

Landfill gas is a natural process, however in high volumes poses a threat to the community and the environment because it can cause fires and explosions. Automotive emissions are the main cause of air pollution worldwide. These pollutants cause smog in the air and respiratory issues in those who inhale excessive amounts.

That’s why emission testing is vital, and Adtech’s gas sampling bags the best solution.

Testimonial - Fluoroplastic Tube - Technical Application

To whom it may concern.

I should like to bring your attention to the fact that I have now dealt with

Maisie Usborne on two occasions with an enquiry for a tubing application

which has been giving me a technical headache!

This member of your staff was not only very helpful in my quest, but went

out of her way to send samples of your products with which I could

experiment. Her polite, pleasant and cheerful nature was very evident and

the impression that she is very capable and happy in her job role means that

she is valuable asset to your staff.

If only more companies were as helpful as yours, this country would, I am

sure have a very bright industrial future.

I have been in the engineering industry all my working life, 60 years, as a

design engineer and know what it is like to survive!

Chris. (Retired Engineer)

We're delighted that Megan Snowdon has joined our R&D team, Meg's background was in the steel industry and she's learning lots about fluoroplastics and working with much more fiddly bespoke components.

Meg's appointment is part of our continual improvement plan for processes, quality and product range, as well as growth into new and exciting markets.
