Fire Investigation Kit
For fire and arson investigation
The ION Science Fire Investigation Kit with Tiger or Tiger LT photoionisation detector (PID) has been specifically designed to provide you with all the tools for a convenient, easy-to-use solution for the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) within Fire and Arson Investigation applications.
In suspected arson cases, it is part of the fire investigation to prove that there is no other cause of the fire. The Fire Investigation Kit can be used to detect hydrocarbon compounds such as those found in petrol, alkanes, and cycloalkanes. Fire investigators including the police, consultants and private fire investigators acting on behalf of insurance companies, will search for every type of fire accelerant such as grill lighters, lighter fuel, liquid glue and cleaning agents.
