ION Science PID Sensor technology: ION Science supporting Blackline Safety

Aug 10 2021

Gas detection instruments are critical to protecting the life, health and safety of workers in many industries. Preventing dangerous exposure levels and monitoring over time is key, and using the very best instrumentation available is essential for keeping people safe and healthy, now and in the future. The sensor technology within gas detection instruments is vital, and often the most important aspect to get right for enhanced protection.

ION Science, as a leading global gas detection OEM for over 30 years, were chosen by Blackline Safety for their superior range of gas sensors when developing their comprehensive product range.

PID (photoionisation detection) sensor technology is where ION Science really demonstrates their expertise and knowledge. ION Science’s range of sensors are rated very highly within industries such as oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical and more. Their sensors are key components of many life-saving gas detection instruments.

Blackline Safety approached ION Science in 2018 looking to upgrade their instruments with improved VOC (volatile organic compound) detection. It immediately became clear that ION’s range of MiniPID 2 sensors were the best choice.

ION Science’s MiniPID 2 technology employed in Blackline Safety products provides superior performance, and is able to monitor a wide range of VOCs, while interchangeable cartridges and a lifetime sensor warranty minimise downtime in the field. Their sensor range is able to deliver high sensitivity VOC readings in harsh conditions, including 99% relative humidity (non-condensing), and temperatures of -40 to +65°C. Thanks to its anti-contamination design and long life lamp, MiniPID 2 offers 10,000 hours of reliable operation, ideal for long term monitoring in any location. For superior health and safety protection, ION Science supply over 929 response factors to allow easy and accurate detection of key VOCs.
