BGI's DeltaCal is the first and only continuous volumetric flow calibration/audit device which gives a direct indication of volumetric flow rate, standard flow rate, barometric pressure (both mm/Hg & mb), ambient temperature and filter temperature in one instrument. It was developed for use with U.S. EPA PM2.5 designated samplers and their PM10 derivatives. With an accessory adapter it is usable with any air sampler in the 1.5 to 19.5 Lpm range. The DC100 version has a range of 10-60 Lpm. 

It is the only field audit/calibration device which meets the same temperature criteria as the EPA designated samplers themselves. The temperature range is -30° to 55° C (EPA requires up to 40° C). It is designed to go anyplace, indoors or out...

BGI stands by its first principle: venturi calibrators will operate for 20 continuous hours on 4 AA cells, and this calibrator does not vary from that principle. The heart of the deltaCal is of course the venturi which is superior to an orifice, in that it offers no sharp edges which can be damaged and a 90% recovery of the measurement pressure drop, important when calibrating some forms of speciation samplers or other critical orifice controlled devices. Because flow through the instrument is uninterupted, our graphic software provides a continuous output display of all functions with both actual and standard flow rates. Pulsation free, accurate to less than 0.75% of the flow rate reading, NIST traceable and designed, built and calibrated in an ISO 9001:2008 facility.
