Portable Handheld Multigas Monitor with PID Photo Ionization Detector for VOCs
PID (Photo Ionization Detector, also known as an VOC monitor or VOC detector) is used to measure volatile organic compounds (VOCs) & other gases in concentrations from parts per billion (ppb) to parts per million (ppm).The PID sensor indicates if VOCs are present, but do not identify type.PIDs are used mostly to detect VOCs in soil, sediment, air & water.It is often used to detect contaminants in ambient air and soil during drill activities & spills to identify potential problems.
In some cases you will also need to detect other gases as well, such as Hydrogen sulfide, Carbon monoxide, Oxygen, & Combustible gases(LEL). If that is the case, some multigas monitors allow up to 6 different sensor combinations.
Depending on your specific application or needs, you can choose the appropriate gas detector and sensor combinations.If you are in need of help, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance or guidance in choosing the proper gas detector.
Photoionization ApplicationsEnvironmental - Screen VOCs emitted from contaminated soils and leaking storage drums
Toxic Hazardous Waste Monitoring- disposal sites, industrial plants, closed military bases, hazardous waste transportation
Drum Monitoring- Monitor hazardous waste containers at old disposal, landfills, garbage sites, closed industrial plants and military sites
PID for EPA Method 21 Compliance - EPA Standard for monitoring fugitive emissions in pipelines and chemical processing equipment
Soil Remediation- Leaking Underground Storage Tanks for
detecting BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) as well as
TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in gasoline, diesel and jet fuel
Real Estate Transfers- Environmental soil contamination monitoring for due diligence and environmental impact studies prior to purchase
Environmental Remediation and Contaminated Air Treatment- Liquid scrubber absorption, activated carbon adsorption, thermal oxidation, and incineration
Headspace Screening- Measure concentrations of VOC's in water or soil vapors
Toxic VOCs in Drinking Water Sources-
Hydrologist and environmental engineers often use PIDs to monitor
chlorinated solvents (carbon tetrachloride) and VOCs (toluene) in
groundwater at drill and well sites or industrial plants, military bases
or nuclear facilities, etc. Can also monitor water stripper effluents
and off gases from wastewaters.
