Photoionisation detector lamps from Heraeus Amba Australia are used in gas chromatography applications, for trace gas monitoring and ionisation of samples for mass spectrometry and in portable instruments for gas analysis.
Typical photoionisation detectors measure volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other gases in concentrations of ppm to ppb.
The applications of Photoionisation detector lamps
From industrial processes to chemical storage, accidents and chemical warfare, the need for chemical detection is essential for personal safety. Photoionisation detector lamps can be found in these settings.
PID monitoring is increasingly used, often combined with other detection techniques, to provide safe monitoring of hazardous materials for Emergency Response Teams, Industrial Maintenance, Public Safety and Military Protection.
