The NEO PID is the most advanced portable gas detector on the global market and is used to monitor volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The sensor can monitor over 700 VOC gas species and reliably detect down to parts per billion levels (ppb) and up to 15,000 parts per million (ppm). This article will explore five industry applications in which the NEO PID can be used and the benefits it provides.
A Detectably Better Portable VOC Gas Detector
Several models in the NEO range can be used to measure different sensitivity scales. This makes the NEO PID suitable for many different applications and the most versatile portable VOC gas detector available.
The benefits of the NEO PID are that it provides an extremely high level of sensitivity, stability and reproducibility, which are the main components in VOC detection. In addition to the three advantages mentioned above, it also provides the following:
- Built-in cross-factor list
- Long Battery Life
- Man Down Alarms
- Real-time Monitoring
- Replaceable PID
- Small Size
- Three Point Calibration

5 Most Common Industry Applications for the NEO PID
Oil and Gas
Oil and Gas is one of the most common applications requiring VOC detection due to the number of Volatile Organic Compounds emitted from Crude Oil and Petroleum Fuels. With one of the most common VOCs being Benzene, a highly carcinogenic substance. And if a leak of any of these VOCs were to occur, particularly in a confined space like an oil platform, it would be paramount for personnel to know. Thus, implementing the NEO PID and a NEO Benzene PID is an easy and reliable way to protect personnel in this industry.
Fire and Rescue
As mentioned above, VOCs are found widely in petroleum fuels, thus they can be encountered frequently by firefighters, particularly in arson investigation. Both the NEO PID and the NEO Benzene PID will be utilised here, being the ideal solutions to keep teams across the fire and rescue industry safe from the hazards of VOC gases.
Hazardous Waste Disposal
Hazardous substances in the workplace could include acids, disinfectants, gases, heavy metals, pesticides, solvents, radioactive waste and sewer gases. Thus, there are a large number of industries that can require hazardous waste disposal. And with this hazardous waste comes the emission of hazardous gases, requiring the implementation of gas detection to keep personnel safe. The NEO PID in conjunction with other gas detectors is the ideal solution for this, providing portable VOC detection in a robust format.
Benzene gas be massively prevalent across the process industry, from oil and gas (as mentioned above) to manufacturing of plastics, resins and adhesives. And with an 8 hour exposure limit of just 1ppm, over exposure can happen rapidly should a leak occur. Therefore, it is absolutely vital that a NEO Benzene PID is implemented wherever a Benzene leak can occur. And with an easy to operate menu and pumped features, the NEO Benzene can be easily integrated into any Benzene gas application.
Within industries that utilise cleanrooms, including laboratories, pharmaceutical and automotive, it is essential that these rooms stay clear of any potentially harmful substances. As these can affect the work going on inside these rooms as well as causing harm to personnel. Due to portable VOC detectors such as the NEO being able to detect over 700 different gases and vapours, these make a great addition to these industries to help prevent exposure to these VOCs. In particular, the NEOs lightweight model makes it easier and more flexible in detecting VOCs within this industry.
