Title: Testing and evaluation of the Sandia Smart Pre-concentrator using a vapor generation system.

Abstract

Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) was contracted by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), through KBRwyle to perform testing and evaluation of the SNL Smart Pre- concentrator (SPC) system and a COTS FTIR system procured by DTRA through KBRwyle. Two common chemical warfare agent simulants, dimethyl methylphosphonate and triethyl phosphate were selected as the compounds of interest. SNL tested both systems using a COTS vapor generation system, capable of delivering known concentrations of specific chemical compounds to both detection systems, with Sandia responsible for the SPC system. Both systems were measured against COTS sorbent collection tubes analyzed by SNL via a laboratory GCMS system. Concentrations measured from tubes upstream from the FTIR system differed from the expected concentrations, while downstream tubes were mostly within 20% of the target concentration.
