Industrial pollution monitoring and robust instrument solutions: Fixed gas detection from ION Science

As news around the changing climate and how to reduce the impact of industrial activity dominates the headlines, the pressure is on for businesses to act. Effective monitoring of emissions and gases from industrial activity, such as plastics manufacturing, oil and gas refining, chemical production and more is a step in the right direction to ensuring compliance with environmental, health, and safety laws.

Fixed gas detection solutions from ION Science are designed with industrial applications in mind. This makes them an ideal choice for businesses wanting to improve their monitoring systems for better environmental credentials. It is essential that fixed instruments used for gas monitoring are robust. This includes being able to withstand extreme temperatures and humidity, requiring limited maintenance, and have accurate alert and monitoring capabilities in place.

ION Science offers a range of fixed gas detection instruments, all of which utilise the award-winning PID (photoionisation detection) sensors developed by ION Science. While they all measure different VOCs (volatile organic compounds), the fixed instruments offered are robust, stress tested, and developed with technology to help them deliver accurate monitoring no matter what.

The Falco Fixed VOC Gas Detector offers the very latest in fixed PID monitoring. Featuring Typhoon Technology, preventing condensation forming on the sensor, which eliminates false readings, where other competing fixed monitors fail. Competing technology fails when condensation shorts out their electrodes, which in turn leads to false readings.

Whether the Falco is installed inside or out, it is built to withstand harsh weathers, wet conditions, and extreme temperatures. It can operate in a wide temperature range of – 40 to 50 °C, 0-100 % RH and condensing humidity. Bringing further added value, to ensure the complete accuracy of the data.

Applications where the end-user specifically monitors benzene, ION Science have developed the innovative Titan. This intrinsically safe fixed PID instrument was a world first and remains the benchmark in Titan specific continuous monitoring. Featuring a 10.6 eV lamp, it is ideal for use on manufacturing sites where the risk of benzene exposure risk is high, such as in oil refineries and chemical plants. The Titan offers continuous real-time data feedback of VOC concentrations in the air, taking samples every minute to an accuracy of 0.1ppm or +10%, whichever is greater. It too can operate at 0-100 % RH and has internal heating to stabilise the sensor even in difficult environments. Given the serious risk benzene poses to worker health and nature, having reliable, accurate monitoring and detection with the Titan is essential.

When it comes to fence line monitoring, ION Science’s TVOC 2 fixed continuous VOC gas detector is a great solution for sitewide solutions. A slightly more basic model than the Falco and Titan, the TVOC 2 is still a highly dependable and reliable PID detector. Designed to offer straightforward monitoring solutions in a range of harsh environments, the TVOC 2 can operate from – 20 to 50 °C, 0-95 % RH (non-condensing), and also features the anti-contamination.

Monitoring of industrial pollutants and VOCs will be a field that only continues to grow in importance as the health of the planet becomes a more critical issue. Businesses that invest in technology from ION Science now will not only be compliant with current emission laws, but will be prepared for future change. Choose fixed gas instruments you can rely on no matter what, with the range from ION Science.
