Photoionization detector added to product lineup

The 2020gasPRO has been added to this firm’s photoionization detection (PID) instruments. It joins the 2020PROPlus and 2020ppbPRO to round out a complete offering of PIDs.

The 2020gasPRO utilizes prefilter tubes designed by Drager Safety AG & Co., Lubeck, Germany, to operate as a single gas detection instrument. The prefilter tubes are currently able to detect the presence of benzene and are suited for hydrocarbon processing operations.

The prefilter tube holder can be used on all of this company’s instruments and allows for single gas detection with the 2020gasPRO and optional single gas detection with the 2020ppbPRO. Additionally, the holder can utilize carry activated charcoal tubes used to provide accurate clean air calibration as well as humidity reduction tubes, which allow the original 2020PROPlus to operate better even in extreme humid environments, the company points out.
