Organic Trap Bottle Guidance
This setup, though not recommended, can be useful in certain circumstances (e.g. extractable organics). One of the biggest problems with the setup is finding a source for parts. We have worked with several consultants and permittees trying to find a source for these parts. We have found two sources of this equipment, Cole-Parmer and Jensen Inert Products.
This is not an endorsement for Cole-Parmer or Jensen Inert Products. Again, this is not an equipment endorsement nor is it a recommendation for this particular sampling setup. Since it is in the QA Manual and Department SOP, we felt that we should provide some information on availability.
The all-Teflon 1 liter bottle and trap are approximately $100. The Cole-Parmer part numbers are: VPN 1000-4-4 and VDR 44730.

The assembly also includes a threaded plastic cap to fit the bottle and a 1 ft long piece of 1/4" OD Teflon tubing which is inserted through one port to the bottom of the bottle.
