JBS&G adds another Tiger PID detector to portfolio of gas detection instrumentation for major contaminated land projects
Australian environmental consultancy, JBS&G has purchased another well-proven Tiger handheld volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor from Ion Science, leading specialist in gas detection instrumentation for global environmental and occupational health monitoring applications. This latest handheld photoionisation detector (PID) is being used on a major new project and was chosen for a number of performance benefits as well as the free extended five-year warranty.
JBS&G is one of Australia and New Zealand’s leading and most respected providers of environmental services, including contaminated land, groundwater remediation, impact assessment, due diligence, EPA accredited auditing, hazardous materials and occupational hygiene assessment. The company has worked on some of the largest and most complex environmental assessment and remediation projects in the countries.
Aaron Smith, Senior Consultant at JBS&G:
“We have been using the handheld Tiger detector for many years without a problem and found it to be a robust, reliable, fast, accurate and user-friendly solution.”
“A major new project prompted the need for a further PID and we did not hesitate in choosing another ION Science Tiger especially with the free five-year warranty when the instrument is registered within one month of purchase.”
“We use the PID to assess potentially contaminated land, air and materials which makes the Tiger’s anti-contamination design very important in providing the most accurate results possible.”
“The overall service from ION Science has been excellent and we will definitely be using more of their monitoring instruments in the future.”
About the ION Science 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 todramatically 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.
