ION Science Tiger Fire Investigation Kit

ION Science Arson Fire Investigation Kit

This item will be discontinued December 31st 2022.

The ION Science Fire Investigation Kit with TIGER VOC detector has been specifically designed to provide you with all the tools for a convenient, easy-to-use solution for the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) within fire and arson investigation applications.

Fire investigation teams are responsible for the examination and assessment of suspected arson-related sites, and further analysis of suspicious samples.

In suspected arson cases, it is part of the investigation to prove that there is no other cause of the fire. The ION Science Fire Investigation Kit can be used to detect hydrocarbon compounds such as those found in petrol, alkanes, and cycloalkanes. Fire investigators including the police, consultants and private investigators acting on behalf of insurance companies, will search for every type of fire accelerant such as grill lighting fluid, lighter fuel, liquid glue and cleaning agents.

In the aftermath of a fire, significant values can already be 1-20 parts per million (ppm. Depending on the period of time between the occurrence of the fire and the examination, potential VOC gases might have partially disappeared. As a result, values always vary and sometimes the measured values can reach 100 ppm or more.

Most extinguishing foams used by fire teams contains proteins and other hydrocarbon compounds which can produce falsified results and make usable measurements difficult.

Investigators require a solution for the fast discovery of potential arson incident accelerants, and initial crime scene VOC assessment.

The Tiger PIDs are perfect for arson investigation. The instruments have a rugged design, are ready to use within seconds, easy to operate with gloves.

Utilizing the TIGER’s unique patented fence electrode technology within its photoionization detection (PID) sensor, TIGER utilizes humidity resistant and anti-contamination design and is ideal for use in harsh, high humidity environments.

The Fire Investigation Kit Includes:
• TIGER (as specified) handheld VOC detector for rapid, accurate response to VOCs
• 1m Flexiprobe for versatile, practical detection of VOCs in hard-to-reach places
• Bump test pen for simple, quick reassurance that your detector is responding to the presence of volatiles prior to use
• AA TIGER battery pack for emergency power source during long shifts or when access to a charging point is not available
• Charging cradle & travel charge adapter for remote charging of your instrument on the go
• Exhaust barb which can be connected to a collection bag to allow users to collect samples for further lab analysis
• Quick start guide for ease of use and no specialized training required
• PTFE filters (pack of 10) spares are provided for quick and simple TIGER maintenance
• Rugged Carry Case for easy, secure and robust transportation of the TIGER and accessories
• Integrated flashlight ideal for use within dark or dimly lit areas

The leading technology of the TIGER makes it the most advanced, low-cost handheld VOC detector on the market giving you the most accurate, reliable results you can count on, every time. Whether deciding to wear PPE or checking head space for compliance TIGER gives confidence that the right decision will be made in all environments, humid or dusty.

This variant of the hugely popular TIGER VOC meter is low on cost but high on performance. Its revolutionary, patented PID (photoionization detector) sensor technology with humidity resistance and anti-contamination design provide market leading accuracy and run time. Combined with 24 hour battery life, these features maximize field time by minimizing erroneous readings in high humidity and drift in harsh environments.

The world’s leading PID manufacturer, ION Science’s PID sensor technology has also received independent verification as the best performing on the market for its speed of response, accuracy and linearity.

The instrument has been designed with the user in mind for ease of use and servicing. Batteries can be replaced in potentially explosive environments due to the innovative Intrinsically Safe design. Low cost filters and lamps can be easily changed in minutes, minimizing instrument downtime. Fast battery charging allows the instrument to be fully charged in just six hours.

TIGER offers simple, one handed operation even when wearing multiple pairs of thick gloves. Its rugged design and protective, removable rubber boot withstand harsh environmental conditions.

The large, clear back-lit display allows for easy viewing in any light condition. An integrated torch is designed for directing the instrument’s probe into dimly lit areas. The illuminated keypad activates when light is low.

TIGER is a ground breaking, low cost entry level PID with all the essential functions you need for handheld VOC monitoring and detection. The instrument has the lowest running costs on the market with inexpensive disposable parts, lamps and filters.
