Monitoring the ambient air for parts per million (ppm) and parts per billion (ppb) concentrations of VOCs allows the company to quickly evaluate the danger and determine if leaking fugitive gases are toxic.

Richard Lenius, General Manager at Lone Star Hazmat Response:

After meeting ION Science at the TCEQ trade conference and learning more about its products, we chose the TigerLT handheld PID as it met our cost and functionality requirements. During testing the instrument proved extremely easy to operate and ready to use immediately after powering on. As we get called out to all kinds of environments, I was also particularly drawn to the instrument’s humidity resistance and anti-contamination design especially as our other PIDs had failed on humid days.

For more than 15 years, Lone Star Hazmat Response has excelled at providing industry-leading emergency spill response as well as safe and effective environmental remediation services. The company has steadily added to its capabilities and now maintains four strategically located rapid response centres in eastern Texas, which allows it to deploy rapidly whenever an emergency requires its services.

The Lone Star Hazmat Response team, which comprises hazmat specialists and incident commanders, works closely with first responders including firefighters, police and paramedics to provide critical support across a range of hazardous materials incidents. These include roadside emergency spills involving oil, diesel fuel and gasoline, product transfer for situations where fluid must be moved from a compromised vehicle to another or in the unfortunate event of an oil, gas or salt water release.

Texas-based Lone Star Hazmat Response is using a handheld TigerLT volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor from ION Science to identify the presence of potentially harmful VOCs at hazardous materials incidents. Chosen for its ease of use, quick start and humidity resistant design, the entry-level photoionisation detector (PID) is helping the emergency spill and land remediation specialist to increase efficiencies by quickly and accurately determining the level of protection required by first responders.

Lone Star Hazmat Response uses PID instruments to quickly identify the presence of gases and vapours. Monitoring the ambient air for parts per million (ppm) and parts per billion (ppb) concentrations of VOCs allows the company to quickly evaluate the danger and determine if leaking fugitive gases are toxic.
