(MVI) Mercury Vapour Indicator

Portable Mercury Vapour Indicator

The Mercury Vapour Indicator utilises dual beam UV absorption technology, which means that the portable mercury vapour indicator does not saturate or need regenerating between readings – like traditional gold film detection methods – eliminating mercury indicators downtime.

Fast and accurate, the portable mercury vapour indicator gives a real-time response and is ready to detect instantly. The mercury Indicator provides continuous readings and offers two detection ranges: 0.1 to 199 and 1 to 1999 microgram/cubic meter.
