Molly Brown, Geo-environmental Engineer at IGE Consulting:

We previously hired the ION Science TigerLT for monitoring VOCs in soils so have used it numerous times with great success. To save costs in the long term, it made sense to purchase one of the instruments. It also adds value to our site investigations and reports as we are able to provide a more comprehensive risk assessment.

Geo-environmental consultancy, IGE Consulting, is using a TigerLT handheld photoionisation detector (PID) to provide comprehensive risk assessments of on-site contamination. Supplied by UK-based distributor, Shawcity.

Every assessment is unique and site-specific as every site has different underlying ground conditions, environmental setting, previous site use and end-use. However, the process by which each site is assessed is routine with an initial desk based assessment and site walkover which will design, if required, the requirement for intrusive site investigation wherein the ground conditions are assessed, ground gas monitoring is undertaken, sampling and chemical testing is undertaken and the risks to humans and the wider environment are refined.
