A new standard for VOC detectors

Photoionisation detectors (PIDs) are considered the optimal choice when detecting VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). In simple terms, PID detectors use ultraviolet light to break down and ionize a sample of VOC gas.

As the sample surrenders the electrons it acquired during the ionization process, the detector records the flow of electrons relative to the amount of gas present. This can then be processed to supply a gas reading.

There are different ionization potentials for various VOC gases. International Gas Detectors (IGD) can supply clients with a 10.6 EV PID sensor which has the capacity to measure 700+ VOC gases and vapors.

Isobutylene is used as a stable and safe calibration gas with readily available cross calibration factors to relate to the gas that is being evaluated.

IGD possesses over 100 years of dedicated gas detection experience and more than 20 years of manufacturing, supplying and servicing PID detectors. Therefore, customers can rest assured they will be supplied with the very best service and support available.

As dedicated specialists in gas detection, you can be safe in the knowledge that IGD offers the highest level of safety advice and equipment recommendations from an expert source. IGD offers free training on all its products, as well as supplying demonstration units for portable monitors.

The company is a CPD accredited source and has a team that covers all of the UK and Ireland, as well as delivering online and in-person training sessions. Moreover, IGD proudly possesses one of the largest distributor and partner networks across the industry.

This ensures that customers and clients receive the highest quality PID detectors with access to expert training on PID detectors, wherever they are located, directly from the manufacturer. Check out IGD’s new, sophisticated range of fixed and portable PID detectors below:
