Volatile Organic Compound Detector Stands Out in the Field

Jan 14 2014 Read 1560 Times

When a new hand held photoionisation detection (PID) instrument was required by supplier of environmental sampling and monitoring equipment, Van Walt, the revolutionary Tiger volatile organic compound (VOC) detector from Ion Science – leading manufacturer of PID/VOC detectors – was considered the best solution on the market.

Supplied by Shawcity (UK), UK distributor of Ion Science products, the Tiger VOC detectors are being used by Van Walt’s customers, who are mostly environmental research consultants, in the UK, Spain and New Zealand.

Vincent Van Walt, Director at Van Walt explains: “Our reputation for supplying high quality equipment, which has been built up over 30 years, is of paramount importance to us. That’s why we meticulously source products that are the latest, most efficient and most reliable available. The Tiger, which is also backed by a first class service, support and training package from Shawcity, meets all these requirements and more.”

He continues: “Our customers expect the right tools for the job and the Tiger’s PID capabilities are second to none. It utilises advanced patented fence electrode technology with increased resistance to humidity and contamination, meaning it is less prone to fogging. Together with a clear, easy to read display, this makes the Tiger ideal for use in harsh field environments. Equipment is often designed by people who have never set foot in the field and this is clearly not the case with the Tiger. The PID sits comfortably in the hand for easy VOC detection, offers fast start-up with no complicated set-up processes and is entirely fit for purpose.”

A robust hand held VOC detector, Tiger provides a dynamic detection range of 1ppb to 20,000ppm, offering the widest measurement range of any other VOC instrument on the market. Ready to use, straight out of the box, the Tiger requires no complex set up procedures via a PC to perform basic functions and provides the best available VOC detection and software features available.

Ion Science’s Tiger also has the fastest response time on the market of just two seconds and can be connected directly to a PC via the USB offering fast data download capabilities. It has been designed for the safe replacement of batteries in hazardous environments and is intrinsically safe - meeting ATEX, IECEx, UL and CSA standards. Van Walt offers its environmental research equipment on a sale or rental basis but most customers choose to hire the Tigers as they need to be calibrated to suit individual applications.
