I came across this HNU PID inspired clip art depicting a hazmat suit clad worker taking readings on a hazardous waste site with an analyzer: our Model 101 series PID analyzer.
The PI101 was the field analytical instrument of choice based on performance, reliability and ruggedness on Superfund Sites in the 1980's. In fact, since this was such an essential part of our business, we developed a "hazardous waste site" version of this analyzer in the late 1980's called the HW-101. The PI101 utilized a fan to pull in the air sample, but the HW101 employed a pump.
2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the commercialization of photoionization by Jack Driscoll. We celebrated the Chemistry of Industrial Hygiene during the International Year of Chemistry and garnered some sensational press from our local newspaper. Stay tuned to see what's in store later this year for the 40 year celebration of photoionzation.
