Mercury Detector Accurately Detects Vapours in just 3 seconds!

MVI – portable mercury vapour analyser

No Saturation, No Regeneration - Eliminating Instrument Downtime

The Mercury Vapour Indicator (MVI) is a revolutionary mercury detector, detecting mercury vapours in just 3 seconds! The instrument’s dual beam UV absorption technology means MVI does not saturate or need regenerating between readings - like traditional gold film detection methods - eliminating instrument downtime. Fast and accurate, the MVI mercury detector gives a real time response and is ready to detect instantly. MVI provides continuous readings and offers two detection ranges: 0.1 to 200 and 1.0 to 1999 microgram/cubic meter.

MVI is a portable mercury vapour detector that utilises a high performance pump for fast indication and recovery. The instrument’s audible alarm and large digital display clearly indicate the levels of mercury present.

Ergonomically designed with simple, one handed operation MVI mercury vapour detector is the ideal survey unit for rapid and accurate mercury detection.

Product Testimonials

Product Testimonials – MVI Portable Mercury Detector

“We rely on the Ion Science MVI with our life and the health and safety of those around us, in the extreme heat of the Middle East deserts, in the tropics of Asia, the chilling Bass Strait of Southern Australia and in extremely high levels of mercury vapour. The units must work every time, must be 100% accurate and they must be able to cope with the inevitable knocks and falls of hard use and tough environments. The MVI does that all day, every day, and has not let us down.” Read more.

Ryan Crowe, Director from No Heat Resources Pte Ltd, Singapore.
