Ion Science Inc. is showing a wide range of advanced gas detection instrumentation for occupational health and environmental monitoring at ASSE Safety Expo 2017, 19th – 22nd June, Denver, Colorado at stand 749.

The display will feature the Falco’ series of fixed continuous volatile organic compound (VOC) monitors which have recently been awarded North American approval for use in the USA and Canada. The display also features the company’s popular ‘Tiger’ range of handheld photoionisation detectors (PIDs); ‘Titan’ continuous benzene-specific monitor; Cub personal PID and GasCheck gas leak detectors.

Ion Science’s Falco fixed continuous VOC monitors, which incorporate ‘typhoon’ technology for added reliability in condensing atmospheres and extreme weather conditions, help ensure the safety of workers operating in refineries, petrochemical plants and laboratories. Boasting fast response times, simple operation and several innovative design features, the instrument’s typhoon technology prevents condensation forming on the sensor and removes the risk of the system short circuiting. An external intrinsically safe (IS) sensor facilitates quick and easy servicing without the need for a hot work permit.

As the world’s first truly selective wall-mounted benzene monitor, Ion Science’s Titan continuous benzene-specific monitor is a real game changer for the petrochemical industry. It incorporates the well-proven Ion Science MiniPID technology, offers high sensitivity and is capable of detecting benzene levels down to 100ppb (parts per billion) and up to 20ppm (parts per million).

Offering a robust and reliable design, the Ion Science Tiger handheld PID provides a dynamic detection of one ppb to 20,000 ppm, which is the widest measurement range on the market. It is easy to set up and provides advanced VOC detection and software features. It has a fast response time of just two seconds and can be connected directly to a PC via the USB offering rapid data download capabilities.

TigerLT’ is a streamlined, low-cost version of the Tiger. This latest entry-level PID offers worldwide IS certification for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and is ideal for environmental surveys. It incorporates the company’s advanced Fence Electrode technology for increased resistance to humidity and contamination ensuring ultimate reliability and accuracy in the field.

The Tiger Select is a handheld gas detector with two mode operation for the rapid and accurate detection of benzene and TACs. Utilising the high output Ion Science 10.0eV monitoring system, a reading for TACs is seen immediately on start-up. Should TACs be detected, a benzene pre-filter tube can be easily attached to ensure rapid detection and selective measurement of benzene.

Ion Science’s Cub personal PID is the world’s smallest, lightest and most sensitive gas detector – designed to accurately measure VOCs and TACs. With market-leading ppb sensitivity, Cub features an audible, vibrating and flashing LED alarm designed to give workers an early warning of exposure to hazardous gases, including benzene, before they reach harmful levels.

Designed specifically for the detection of gas leaks, GasCheck detectors respond rapidly to any gas, or mix of gases. The advanced micro-thermal conductivity sensor of the GasCheck G accurately detects the smallest of gas leaks down to cc/sec, mg/m³ or ppm levels
