Air Quality Monitoring of Volatile Organic Compounds with PID

Breathing poor quality air can have negative immediate and long-term health effects, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that up to 99% of the global population breathes polluted air.

Awareness of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and the role they play in poor air quality in urban environments has seen a significant increase in recent years. There are many projects monitoring and controlling levels of pollutants, such as near schools and hospitals, to promote alternative methods of transport where traffic pollution may be diverted or alternative means of transport be encouraged.

Additionally, there has also been an increase in awareness of the importance of indoor air quality and the prevalence of VOCs indoors, where they need to be strictly controlled such as in clean rooms, or where they can rapidly increase to dangerous levels, such as on assembly lines. Therefore, it’s very important for companies to ensure worker health and safety in potentially hazardous environments. This requires accurate monitoring to minimize exposure to any compounds that may be immediately dangerous to a worker’s health and safety.

Volatile organic compounds have a range of toxicity levels and must be detected accurately and rapidly across a wide dynamic range of concentrations, from highly sensitive sub-part per billion measurements to wide range measurements such as tens of thousands of parts per million.

ION Science designs and manufactures industry-leading photoionization detection (PIDs) that allow targeted measurements for specific applications. This empowers end-users with accurate data to make informed decisions and take the correct action when needed to arrest and reverse increases in levels of VOCs and other pollutants to improve air quality, save lives and preserve the environment.

Protection of lives and preserving the environment is the vision of ION Science. To achieve these goals, ION strives to be the global leader in the design and manufacture of the most advanced PID technology in the world. ION is proud to have over 30 years of experience in the continual research and development, manufacture and distribution of PID sensors. VOC air quality monitoring
