Tiger Handheld PID Monitor

Tiger is chosen at the PID to measure VOCs

Leading independent site investigation, geotechnical engineering and environmental consultancy, Southern Testing, has chosen the handheld Tiger PID to measure VOCs in the field.

Recommended by our exclusive UK distributor, Shawcity, as a replacement for equipment that was no longer  supported by its manufacturer, the revolutionary Tiger instruments enable Southern Testing to make an assessment of risk associated with ground-borne vapour, and also to screen soil samples, which then allows them to make the best use of their laboratory analysis budgets.

According to Dr. Lawrence Mockett, Director at the Sussex-based consultancy, the ground vapour is measured in monitoring wells, while soil samples are screened by headspace, with the equipment used four or five times each week at various sites around the UK.

He says: “The Tiger’s reliability, ruggedness and in-built humidity resistance are all key benefits to us. We frequently encounter high humidity conditions so it enables us to obtain reliable data where other equipment has previously failed.”

About the Tiger VOC monitor

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.
