Ambilabs - Model PyxisGC - Gas Chromatograph for Remote BTEX Monitoring
PyxisGC BTEX is the first and unique gaschromatograph 'carrier gas free' for remote BTEX monitoring in ambient air. PyxisGC BTEX is manufactured by Pollution Analytical Equipment in compliance with EN14662-3:2015.
- 'Smart city' air quality monitoring
- Fence line monitoring
- Research Institutions
- PID Detector

PyxisGC BTEX uses ambient air as its carrier gas, so that cumbersome carrier gas cylinders are no longer required. This unique feature simplifies installations and eliminates the need for periodic visits to the installation site in order to replace gas cylinders.
BTEX (Benzene, Ethylbenzene, Toluene, Xylenes) are a group of volatile, harmful, and carcinogenic compounds, usually released in the atmosphere during industrial processes or vehicle fuel combustion. Outdoor and continuous monitor of such compounds is very important, gives a clear picture of the air quality, can be used to identify health and safety concerns, demonstrates compliance with local regulations and even assess if there is a leak in storage or processing infrastructure. Benzene concentration is regulated by European Air Quality Directive 2008/50EC, which sets the limit value (LV) at 1,5 ppb (5 μg / m3) for the annual mean.
THE AIR QUALITY MONITOR AROUND YOU
A smart city is a designation given to a city that incorporates information and communication technologies (ICT) to enhance the quality and performance of urban services such as energy, utilities, and transportation, so to reduce resource consumption, wastage, and overall costs. In order to achieve this goal it is necessary to monitor the real-time environmental conditions, with a network of sensor nodes across relevant spots in a city, for identifying the sources of pollution and mitigate them.
PyxisGC BTEX can be implemented in the monitoring network and supply real-time information about the quality of the air
related to BTEX concentration. This data can be used to get a clearer picture of air quality, with precise geolocalization, thus helping in the development of an environmental plan able to reduce the pollution impact on the population.

- Airports, stations, harbors
0.05-40ppb for Benzene and Toluene: 0.25-00ppb for Ethylbenzene; 1-500ppb Xylenes
Continuous control and fast response for everyday safety.
Monitoring the potential escape of pollutant gases from industrial sites can be difficult to achieve due to changing weather conditions and the large size of many of sites. Fence line monitoring is the only way to ensure that proposed standards are being met and that neighboring communities are not being exposed to unintended emissions. This is a relatively new approach to control emissions from an industrial plant, in order to identify the source of potential problem.
PyxisGC BTEX can be installed in a network around industrial facilities and with our Cloud software it’s possible to view the data in real time, from every smart device anywhere in the world. Reliable, real-time data can be used to create charts, tables, and other statistical analysis. The correct functioning of a plant can be continuously monitored and in case of emergency situations the threat will be quickly assessed and handled.
