Fast and accurate, the MVI mercury vapor detector gives a real-time response and is ready to detect instantly. Possessing UV absorption technology, this portable device does not need to saturate or regenerate between readings, unlike traditional fold film detection methods, eliminating instrument downtime. It’s simple, one-handed operation design makes it an ideal survey unit for rapid and accurate mercury detection.

The MVI mercury vapor detector provides continuous readings and offers two detection ranges: 0.1 to 199 and 1 to 1999 micrograms/cubic meter. This instrument also utilizes a high-performance pump for fast indication and recovery, while featuring an audible alarm and large digital display to clearly indicate levels of mercury present. The alarm itself is factory pre-set to 20 micrograms/cubic meter and has an overall response time of 3 seconds.

The instrument is highly accurate due to its dual beam ultraviolet absorption module and is designed to withstand harsh environments to provide ultimate protection. The temperature range for this portable device is 50°F to 122°F and weighs 6 pounds and 10 ounces. Dimensions for comparison are 145x295x80 mm. The MVI mercury vapor detector is powered by NiMH batteries and lasts up to 5½ hours from a full charge. The repeatability for this instrument is 35 % FSD at 1 μg/m3.
