PIDs for Environmental Air Quality Monitoring
hotoionization detectors (PIDs) can provide efficient monitoring and real-time information about the presence of toxic gases, explosive limits, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other gases in the environmental industry.
PIDs rely on ionization as the basis of detection. When chemicals being monitored have been ionized, or the ions have been positively charged inside of the instrument from the presence of light, a current is produced, and the concentration of the existing compound is displayed to the user.
Handheld PIDs are portable gas detection instruments used for a variety of applications to help ensure the safety of both personnel and the environment. These applications include, but are not limited to:
- Environmental screening
- Environmental remediation
- Soil contamination monitoring
- Hazardous materials handling
- Arson investigation
- Leak detection
- Regulatory compliance
- Hazmat response
- Confined space entry
- Benzene detection
- Indoor air quality monitoring
- Drum monitoring
- Groundwater monitoring at drill and well sites
EON offers top brand-name air monitoring equipment and devices for the efficient detection of various gases. Our line of handheld PIDs, the Tiger, the Tiger LT and the Tiger Select, are designed to rapidly and accurately provide continuous readings of VOCs. Independently verified as the best PIDs on the market, the Tiger series offers exceptional humidity resistance, anti-contamination design and wide measurement ranges (ppm and ppb levels) to diverse environmental applications.
For all stages of the environmental remediation process, the Tiger’s easy to use software and direct connectivity provide easy data collection, logging and downloading–allowing an efficient transfer of information for organizations, contractors, regulators and compliance monitoring.
