Environmental Express has revolutionized the way laboratories think of metals digestions. With the Environmental Express HotBlock, laboratories can now perform digestions of samples under uniform temperature conditions up to 96 samples at a time. The HotBlock is made of a PTFE-coated graphite block within a Kydex housing with no exposed metallic parts reducing corrosion potential from the highly acidic environment. The HotBlock utilizes our disposable polypropylene digestion tubes for all EPA approved metals digestions, allowing laboratories to eliminate the washing of glassware. Our FilterMate filtration system for 15 ml and 50 ml sample volumes is designed to work within the same disposable digestion tube, eliminating the need to transfer filtered sample to an additional container and reducing waste in the lab. The introduction of our FlipMate 100 allows for the filtration of 100 ml sample volumes in our disposable polypropylene cups as well.
Environmental Express continues to grow our Organic Chemistry line, offering items for the Volatile Organic Chemistry (VOC) and Semi-Volatile Organic Chemistry (SVOC) laboratories.
Standards, including our custom mix standard solutions and method-based standard solutions, continue to be our specialty. Environmental Express also offers Color Coded Surrogates for semi-volatile extractions that can save costly mistakes in the laboratory. Standards and Surrogates can be provided in any sized volume to meet your laboratory needs. Call or e-mail our Sales or Customer Service departments with your needs and let us provide a quote to you.
Environmental Express provides specific products for radioactive isotope separations, actinide precipitations and sample preparation for alpha particle analysis. We offer disposable ion exchange columns with detachable funnel for column separations in two different sizes. The funnel extends the capacity of the column to over 200mL. For the co-precipitation method of actinide collection, we supply inert high-retention polypropylene filters. For extra convenience we also offer these filters in disposable funnel housings to eliminate any chance of sample carryover.
TCLP (toxicity characteristic leaching procedure) was first promulgated in 1990. The purpose of the method is to predict the impact of a landfilled waste on the underlying groundwater. Since the method's inception Environmental Express has offered a complete line of apparatus and supplies to properly conduct the analysis. The LE environmental rotator for TCLP extractions is a robust design that can handle up to twelve ZHE's or two-liter extraction bottles. Our TCLP filters meet the EPA method completely by being pre-acid washed to meet method requirements Each lot is certified as being properly prepared and this certification, complete with reported levels of background metals, is provided in every box. For organic extractions, our ZHE+ is the only product that allows the use of the maximum sample size prescribed by the method. Our newly re-designed MaxFil pressure filtration device is now light weight aluminum which has been PTFE coated. In addition, look at our website to find the small supplies that you need to complete your TCLP extractions. Bottles, pumps, Tedlar® bags, fittings and even a how-to DVD are available from Environmental Express.
