From industrial processes to chemical storage, chemical spill accidents to environmental monitoring and personal safety the need for gas detection is growing and essential. Several technologies are employed to perform this detection, including catalytic and electrochemical, sensors, gas chromatography, flame and photo ionization, and ion mobility spectrometry. The photoionization detector, or PID, method offers fast response, low detection levels, ease of use, small size, portability and affordability.
Some common applications include leak detection, perimeter monitoring, spill detection, remediation, arson investigation, diesel fuel threshold limit value monitoring, personal protection equipment, and decontamination.
