PHOCHECK Tiger Photoionization Detector
The PHOCHECK Tiger is my choice for a PID detector.
It's a sturdy hand held VOC detector that provides a dynamic detection range of 1 parts per billion (ppb) to 20,000 parts per million (ppm), offering the widest measurement range of any other VOC detector on the market.
It also has the Fence Electrode Technology. What is it and why is better?
"The patented Fence Electrode PID manufactured by Ion Science eliminates problems relative to humidity and accurate VOC detection. Fence Electrode PIDs deliver faster and more dependable readings in varying environments. FirstCheck, PhoCheck and TVOC instruments are more repeatable and have a faster clear down compared to other PID electrode technology."
It's great for head space analysis, indoor air quality, STEL and TWA monitoring, atmospheric monitoring, environmental clean-up, First Response HAZMAT/WMD, arson investigation, leak detection, and monitoring petrochemical industry hazards.
