• Jonathan McCallumHow Does VOC Detection Work? Ion Science Edition

    Let’s face it. Operating gas detection instruments and understanding how they work can be confusing. Multiple technologies can be used depending on the gas being targeted, the environment being measured, and the amount of information required.  For Volatile Organic Compound detection (or VOC), a photo-ionization detector (or PID) is often the instrument of choice. PID’s respond to hundreds of organic and some inorganic gaseous and volatile chemicals found in the workplace.

    Still confused? Don’t worry – that’s why you’re reading this blog!

    With the help of Ion Science, we’ve put together a library of videos that will help you understand exactly how their gas detection products work – including that patented fence electrode technology used in all of their PID products! From the MiniPID to the Cub, we’ve got them all in one convenient spot.

    Now sit back, relax, and start watching!
