Wide Range VOC Gas Sensors
To be incorporated into fixed and portable instruments for detecting a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
ION Science’s new MiniPID 2 PPM WR sensor offers a measurement range up to 10,000 ppm and is aimed at detecting the Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) of VOCs, as well as Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) applications.
The MiniPID 2 PPB WR sensor boasts a measurement range of 20 ppb to 200 ppm making it suitable for Industrial Health & Safety and Fugitive Emissions.
Like all ION Science’s MiniPID 2 sensors, the new WR models offer patented humidity resistance and an anti-contamination design aimed at fast detection of VOCs within even the most challenging environments.
Pete Morris, ION Science’s Business Unit Manager for Sensors comments:
“During the past few years, we have focused on expanding our range of sensors for the accurate and reliable detection of VOCs. The two new MiniPID 2 WR models will plug the remaining gap in our portfolio, open up new global markets and allow us to target previously untapped businesses.
He adds: “Many VOCs have an LEL above 4000 ppm and LDAR method Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 21, which is defined as ‘determination of volatile organic compound leaks’, dictates you have to measure up to 10,000 ppm. Before launching the MiniPID 2 PPM WR sensor we couldn’t fully access these markets.
“In addition, prior to introducing the MiniPID 2 PPB WR we did not have a sensor optimized for detecting VOCs in industrial environments that have threshold levels between 40 and 200 ppm. It will also help our customers adhere to legislation in the USA which requires fugitive emission measurements of VOCs, including benzene, up to 200 ppm.”
