ION Science to Show Market Leading Gas Detection Instrumentation for Occupational Health & Safety

ION Science will be showing a wide range of gas detection instrumentation for occupational health & safety monitoring applications at A+A 2019. Designed to protect workers in potentially hazardous environments, the volatile organic compound (VOC) monitors on display, include the full personal, handheld and fixed instrument range, as well as the portfolio of technologically advanced PID sensors.

The fixed instrument range includes the recently launched ‘TVOC 2’ fixed photoionisation detector (PID), developed for continuous monitoring of total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs).‘Titan’ the continuous benzene specific PID and ‘Falco’ fixed continuous PID with ‘typhoon technology’. The revolutionary ‘Tiger’ handheld PID and ‘Cub’and ‘CubTAC’ personal PIDs. In addition, a ‘Mercury Vapour Indicator’ (MVI) for detection of mercury in just three seconds and ‘SF6’ and ‘GasCheck’ leak detectors will be featured. The company will also highlight its portfolio of ‘MiniPID’ sensors with patented humidity resistance and anti-contamination design.

As the world’s first truly selective continuous, wall-mounted benzene monitor, the highly sensitive Ion Science Titan continuous benzene specific PID is capable of detecting benzene levels from 100 parts per billion (ppb) up to 20 parts per million (ppm). Like all Ion Science VOC gas detectors, Titan incorporates the company’s latest MiniPID sensor and patented Fence Electrode Technology for unrivalled resistance to humidity and contamination, making it ideal for extended operation in harsh environments. Designed to operate in conditions ranging from -20 ºC up to +60 ºC , Titan is unaffected by changes in ambient temperature.

Ion Science’s TVOC 2 has three selectable detection ranges of 0 – 10, 0 – 100 and 0 – 1000 parts per million making it ideal for monitoring applications in a range of industries including manufacturing, processing, offshore, refineries, petrochemical, chemical, waste and water treatment, indoor air quality and pharmaceutical. By incorporating Ion Science’s MiniPID 2 sensor, TVOC 2 boasts Fence Electrode Technology for increased resistance to humidity and contamination allowing extended operation in the field. The robust and rugged design helps ensure accurate results in the harshest of working environments.

Ion Science’s Falco series of fixed continuous VOC monitors help ensure the on-going protection of workers operating in potentially hazardous industrial environments. Boasting fast response times, simple operation and several innovative design features, the instrument’s typhoon technology prevents condensation forming on the sensor removing the risk of it short-circuiting. The external, intrinsically safe sensor facilitates quick and easy servicing without the need for a hot work permit.

The popular, easy to operate Ion Science Tiger handheld PID provides the widest measurement range on the market of 1 ppb to 20,000 ppm and offers 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. The TigerLT is a streamlined, low-cost version of the Tiger instrument whilst the Tiger Select boasts two-mode operation for the rapid and accurate detection of benzene and total aromatic compounds (TACs).

The world’s smallest and lightest personal PID, Cub, offers market-leading ppb sensitivity and a 10.6 eV lamp. It sets the standard in personal VOC monitoring and features an audible, vibrating and flashing LED alarm designed to give workers an early warning of exposure to hazardous gases. With a dynamic range of 0 – 5000 ppm, Cub sits within the breathing zone and is comfortable and unobtrusive to wear.

Alternatively, CubTAC is a personal PID for the fast, accurate detection of TACs, including benzene. It has a 10.0 eV lamp utilising a unique light filtering technology to give a reliable aromatic hydrocarbon concentration.

The Mercury Vapour Indicator (MVI) detects mercury vapours in just three seconds. Unlike traditional gold film detection methods, the instrument’s dual-beam UV absorption technology means MVI does not saturate or need regenerating between readings, helping to eliminate downtime. The MVI gives a real-time response, provides continuous readings and offers two detection ranges: 0.1 to 200 and 1.0 to 1999 microgram/cubic meter.

Designed specifically for the detection of gas leaks, GasCheck instruments 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.
