Falco Fixed VOC Gas Detector




Masermic were subcontracted by Vitoria-Gasteiz City Council to continuously measure various parameters within wastewater; specifically pH, EC and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These parameters are measured continuously and are recorded in the central computer by the data logger incorporated in their equipment. In addition, if any indicative alarm value is exceeded, the equipment takes a sample of the water surface to be analysed.

Using Falco VOC Detector

Previously, Masermic were using a competitor’s product. However, this kept picking up a very common gas found in the wastewater handling process, methane, and repeatedly gave false positives. The ION Science Falco Fixed PID detector will not detect methane due to its very high ionsiation energy (12.51 eV). This eliminates any false positives and prevents excess samples being taken and analysed. Download the full case study to find out more.
