nov 1 19 10Latest TVOC 2 incorporates well proven MiniPID 2 sensor technology for continuous detection of total volatile organic compounds

Further strengthening its position at the forefront of gas detection instrumentation for global occupational health and environmental monitoring applications, Ion Science (www.ionscience.com) has redesigned its TVOC fixed photoionisation detector (PID). Developed for continuous monitoring of total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs), the TVOC 2 features eye-catching new branding and incorporates the company’s latest market-leading long life MiniPID 2 sensor.

Ion Science’s TVOC 2 has three selectable detection ranges of 0 – 10, 0 – 100 and 0 – 1000 parts per million making it ideal for monitoring applications in a range of industries including manufacturing, processing, offshore, refineries, petrochemical, chemical, waste and water treatment, indoor air quality and pharmaceutical.

By incorporating Ion Science’s MiniPID 2 sensor, TVOC 2 boasts Fence Electrode Technology for increased resistance to humidity and contamination allowing extended operation in the field. A robust and rugged design helps ensure accurate results in the harshest of working environments.

Ion Science’s TVOC 2 utilises a diffusive sample technique resulting in less contamination issues compared to pumped systems which reduces lamp cleaning and servicing requirements. The 4-20 mA analogue output enables TVOC 2 to be integrated into a Distributed Control System (DCS) to give warning or control of high VOC levels in the working environment.

The ATEX approvals enable a three wire TVOC system to be used in Zone 2 hazardous areas, without safety barriers. Plus, ATEX and IECEx approvals allow TVOC to be used in Zone 1 hazardous areas, with safety barriers.

Ion Science’s TVOC 2 is simple to install, service and calibrate and does not require a hot work permit. The MiniPID 2 sensor is accessible and changeable in a matter of seconds.
