Ion Science to Show New Minipid 2High Sense pid Sensor for the First Time

May 13 2017 Comments 0

Ion Science – leading specialist in gas detection for global occupational health and environmental monitoring applications – will be highlighting its wide range of photoionisation detection (PID) sensors for the accurate and sensitive measurement of a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The company will also be showcasing its exciting new MiniPID 2 High Sense (HS) PID sensor for the first time. The MiniPID 2 HS is capable of monitoring trace levels of VOCs for extended periods of time making it ideal for indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring applications.

Ion Science’s wide range of MiniPID 2 sensors incorporate patented Fence Electrode Technology, which is proven to resist humidity and contamination and ensure optimum detection of VOCs in challenging environments. The sensors are incorporated into a wide range of both fixed and portable VOC monitors, which are typically used for the protection of workers operating in potentially hazardous industrial environments.

Exposure to hazardous substances at work is a major contributor to ill health, and the loss to companies through absence and litigation is enormous. However, once a problem has been identified, air quality can be significantly improved by installing appropriate air ventilation and filtration systems.

The launch of the ground-breaking MiniPID 2 HS provides an effective opportunity to introduce extremely low level VOC detection. It also gives stability and reliability advantages that are unavailable in other PID designs.

Ion Science’s MiniPID 2 HS is 15 times more sensitive than its existing MiniPID 2 ppb sensor. It is capable of detecting trace levels of VOCs over a long period of time making it ideal for indoor air quality monitoring applications.

It is also well suited to clean rooms, fence line monitoring, industrial hygiene, site soil sampling, fugitive emissions, volatile spills, law enforcement and emergency response.

Delivering a dependable response to thousands of VOCs across many diverse applications, the MiniPID 2 HS is a simple plug and play sensor providing a wide detection range of 0.5 ppb up to three parts per million (ppm).

It features a re-designed, pneumatically sealed electrode stack for high sensitivity applications. An innovative self-diagnostic feature indicates whether the electrode stack is contaminated or if the sensor is not operating correctly.

The MiniPID 2 HS incorporates Ion Science’s recently launched long-life eV lamp that now offers 10,000 hours continuous operation. Combined with improved stability, lower running current, robust lamp illumination, reliable operation at extreme temperatures and ease of serviceability. This equates to reliable detection of less volatile, less readily sensed compounds, over extended sampling times and a superior sensor in every aspect.

The MiniPID 2 HS is designed for both diffusive and in-line pumped sampling, delivering an exceptional response time and clear down. It boasts intrinsically safe certification and is ATEX, IECEx, II 1G Ex ia IIC T4 Ga accredited.

Backed by offices in the UK, USA, France and Italy, Ion Science is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of PID sensors with its sensor trusted by major global gas detection companies.
