TVOC chosen by Globus
Latest project forms part of successful tender by key distributor Amos Gazit for the design, supply and installation of a complete gas detection system.
Ion Science, leading specialist in gas detection instrumentation for environmental and occupational health monitoring – has recently provided 12 TVOC fixed volatile organic compound (VOC) monitors as part of a successful tender by its distributor, Amos Gazit Ltd, for the design, supply and installation of a complete gas detection solution at leading hazardous materials logistics handling company, Israel-based Globus.
Globus has established the largest, state-of-the-art logistics handling centre for hazardous materials in Israel. Located in Ne ‘ot Hovav near Be‘er Sheva, which is the largest city in the Negev desert, the 23,000 metre facility extends over 25.6 acres. The centre has received all the necessary approvals from the Israeli Ministry for Environmental Protection.
Ra’anan Katz from Ion Science distributor, Amos Gazit comments: “There are a wide range of hazardous materials that require monitoring at the Globus facility. With potential VOCs such as Toulene, Heptane, Dioxane, Tetrahydrofuran, Dimethyl, Formamide, Dichloromethane, we were quick to recommend the Ion Science TVOC fixed PID as a robust, reliable and accurate leak detection solution for this application.”
About the TVOC
TVOC 2 is a fixed continuous PID detector for the detection and measurement of total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs). Its photoionisation detection (PID) sensor capabilities utilise advanced patented Fence Electrode Technology with increased resistance to humidity and contamination.
A robust fixed PID detector, TVOC 2 has a selectable detection range of 0 – 10 ppm, 0 – 100 ppm or 0 – 1000 ppm and is ideal for use in manufacturing and process industries where VOCs are typically present.
With a 4-20 mA analogue output, TVOC 2 can be simply integrated into a Distributed Control System (DCS) to provide warnings and enable control of high VOC levels in the working environment.
The instrument’s ATEX approvals enable a 3 wire TVOC system to be used in Zone 2 hazardous areas without safety barriers, whilst its ATEX and IECEx approvals allow TVOC 2 to be used in Zone 1 hazardous areas with safety barriers.
Simple to install service and calibrate, TVOC 2 requires no hot work permit and the PID sensor is accessible and changeable in a matter of seconds.
