As part of our on-going strategy to continue delivering the best performing PIDs (photoionisation detectors) in the industry, we have introduced several ground-breaking enhancements to our recently launched MiniPID 2 sensor.
The most significant development is a new long-life 10.6 eV lamp that offers an unrivalled 10,000 hours continuous operation. In addition, we have also incorporated an innovative self-diagnostic feature within the MiniPID 2 that indicates whether the lamp is failing to illuminate or the electrode stack is contaminated.
The new lamp offers the dual benefit of a proven 60% increase in life span and improved stability for more accurate measurement during long-term continuous monitoring applications. Other advantages include simplified spares ordering and reduced need for servicing. All our 10.6 eV and 10.0 eV PID instruments will have the new lamp fitted as standard, ensuring reliable, long-term performance underlined by a lifetime of over 10,000 hours continuous operation.
MiniPID 2 offers a raft of benefits, including improved temperature stability, greater sensor-to-sensor consistency and more repeatable performance. It provides fast, accurate and humidity resistant detection of VOC (volatile organic compound) gases and is also interchangeable with the original MiniPID.
Amongst the additional advantages offered by the new MiniPID 2 sensor are lower running current, robust lamp illumination and more reliable operation at extreme temperatures. It gives stability, control and reliability benefits that are unavailable in other PID designs.
Duncan Johns, Managing Director at Ion Science comments: “This new lamp really does set a new benchmark in PID sensor design. Like all Ion Science products, it was developed as a result of market feedback and our commitment to a programme of continuous improvement where we strive to deliver ever better performing PID sensors to our global customer base.”
