Portable Voc Gas Detector

Tiger VOC gas detectors are a roaring success for Van Walt

Van Walt, supplier of environmental sampling and monitoring equipment chose the Tiger VOC detector as the best solution for monitoring VOCs from contaminated land during headspace analysis.

Supplied by Shawcity, UK distributor of Ion Science products, the Tiger VOC detectors are being used by Van Walt customers, who are mostly environmental research consultants, in the UK, Spain and New Zealand.

Vincent Van Walt, Director at Van Walt explains:

“Our reputation which has been built up over 30 years is of paramount importance so we meticulously source products that are the latest, most efficient and most reliable available. The Tiger, which is also backed by a first-class service, support and training package from Shawcity, meets all these requirements and more.”

He continues:

“Our customers expect the right tools for the job and the Tiger’s PID capabilities are second to none. It utilises advanced patented fence electrode technology with increased resistance to humidity and contamination, meaning it is less prone to fogging. Together with a clear, easy to read display, this makes the Tiger ideal for use in harsh field environments.

“What’s more”, Vincent adds: “Equipment is often designed by people who have never set foot in the field. This is clearly not the case with the Tiger as it holds well in the hand for easy VOC detection, offers fast start-up with no complicated setup and is entirely fit for purpose.”

About Tiger

The Tiger handheld VOC detector is a revolutionary handheld gas detection instrument for the rapid, accurate detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) within the harshest of environments.

Tiger incorporates Ion Science patented photoionisation detection (PID) sensor technology with humidity resistance and anti-contamination design, proven to dramatically extend run time in the field.

A robust VOC detector Tiger provides a dynamic detection range of 0 to 20,000 parts per million (ppm) with a minimum sensitivity of 0.001ppm (1 ppb), offering the widest measurement range of any other VOC detector on the market.

This handheld VOC detector has the fastest response time on the market of just two seconds and is just as quick to clear down. The instrument can be connected directly to a PC via the USB offering extremely fast data download capabilities.

Tiger has been designed for the safe replacement of batteries in hazardous environments. Long-life rechargeable Li-ion batteries give up to 24 hours of use. Fast battery charging allows the instrument to be fully charged in 6.5 hours, while 8 hours of use can be achieved from 1.5 hours charge.

Low-cost filters and lamps can be easily changed in seconds, minimising instrument downtime. Inexpensive disposable parts mean the Tiger VOC detector has the lowest running costs on the market.

Tiger is a fully upgradeable VOC detector with multiple functions to choose from. A base unit can be upgraded with data logging, health and safety and ppb options, remotely, without needing to be returned to the factory.

Tiger offers simple, one-handed operation for easy VOC detection. Its rugged design and protective, removable rubber boot withstand the harshest environments.

The large, clear back-lit display allows for easy viewing in any light condition. An integrated torch is designed for directing the instrument’s probe into dimly lit areas.

Ready to use on start-up the Tiger VOC detector needs no complex set up procedures via a PC to perform basic functions. Its simple-to-use software features require minimal user training.

Tiger uses the same PID sensor technology found within all Ion Science handheld, personal and fixed VOC detectors. This ground-breaking PID technology is widely used and trusted by major gas detection manufacturers worldwide.
