Airpointer - Model BTX - Analysis Modules
Benzene is a clear, colorless, highly flammable and volatile, liquid aromatic hydrocarbon with a gasoline-like odor. Benzene is found in ambient air as a result of burning fuels, such as coal, petrol and wood. Toluene also known as methylbenzene, is a clear, water-insoluble liquid with the typical smell of paint thinners. It is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is widely used as an industrial feedstock and as a solvent.
Ethylbenzene is an organic compound, it is a highly flammable, colorless liquid with an odor similar to that of gasoline. This monocyclic aromatic hydrocarbon is important in the petrochemical industry as an intermediate in the production of styrene, the precursor to polystyrene, a common plastic material.
Xylene is the term used to describe the three isomers of dimethyl benzene; m-xylene, p-xylene and o-xylene. Xylenes are produced mainly as part of the BTX aromatics (benzene, toluene, and xylenes).
What are the Effects of BTX?
Besides the well-known carcinogenicity of benzene, also the hepatotoxicity, geno toxicity that are risks for human health caused by benzene.
Zero Air Supply and Span Point Check
Zero air supply and regular span point check are part of the implemented principle whereas zero and span point check may be carried out automatically on a daily basis.
