Cleanrooms are found across a wide range of industries for a vast range of uses. This includes the most common ones such as laboratories, pharmaceutical and medical as well as semi-conductor applications and many other less common ones. Each of these industries need to monitor VOCs for a wide range of reasons, from the hazards they may cause to the personnel to the effects on the work they are doing, thus a fixed VOC monitor will be needed in each of these applications. This article will detail the reasons why a Fixed VOC Monitor may be required in each application as well as the hazards that come with VOCs. This article will also detail the revolutionary Fixed VOC Monitors on offer from IGD. Read on below to find out more.
How long does a VOC sensor last? VOC sensors based on Photo-Ionisation technology (PID) are more complex than most other types of gas detector. PID based detectors utilise an Ultra-violet (UV) lamp to ionise the gas sample. The life of the UV lamp is one of the on-going costs of ownership for this type of detector. This article delves into the typical lamp life currently on the market and why it is capped at a certain amount. IGDs specialist knowledge in PID detection however allows us to set the standard with our revolutionary new development in VOC sensor technology.
