Options for detection of

There are various techniques for detection of . Selection of a detection method requires consideration of various analytical parameters and regulatory requirements. One option is a photoionization detector. A photoionization detector measures VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and other toxic gases in concentrations from ppb up to 10,000 ppm. A PID is a very sensitive broad-spectrum monitor, not unlike a “low-level LEL monitor".

Another option is Bionics Instrument. Bionics is particularly strong in the detection of special gases such as . Limited cross sensitivity and without the need for expensive replacement parts and sensors, makes them unsurpassed in cost-effectiveness.

Acceptable exposure limits are issued by Worksafe Australia. The table below shows the relevant 8-Hour Time-Weighted Average (TWA). During periods of daily exposure to an airborne contaminant, exposure above this value is permitted for short periods, provided they are compensated for by equivalent exposures below the exposure standard during the working day. The density relative to air is important in regards to the mounting height of the gas detector.
