SUMMA Canister Overview

The term “SUMMA” Canister is a genericized trademark that refers to electropolished, passivated stainless steel vacuum sampling devices, such as TO canisters, SilcoCans, MiniCans, etc, which are cleaned, evacuated, and used to collect whole-air samples for laboratory analysis.

The samples can be analyzed using methods such as EPA Method TO-15 for VOCs, ASTM Method D-1946 for Methane and other hydrocarbons, and a host of other methods for other parameters.

Because these canisters are so versatile, they are widely used to sample for indoor air quality, odor identification, environmental compliance, worker exposure, and process effluent measurement, among others.
