#AIHceEXP: The @pidgirl experience

Image
#AIHceEXP May 20-23 2018 Philadelphia, PA The primary reason that we attend the #AIHceEXP annually is to exhibit our suite of gas detection products.

Featured real-time detection products included: 

First level screening tools for rapid identification of the source of the spill/smell/area of concern-Total VOC monitoring:Model 102+ PID with multi-sensor options and Model 115 FID





Second level screening tools for separation of components where general knowledge of types of contaminants/chemicals are being used: Continuous monitors: Model 112
(PID/FID or TCD).
Hand-Held GC:Model 121

Third level tools for sophisticated monitoring:
Model 312 Portable Gas Chromatograph with PC on board and dual detector capability-ideal for applications where the user can eliminate sending samples to the lab
Model 301C: Process Analyzer for 24/7 data reporting of complex matrices.


Nearly everyone who came by my booth at #AIHceEXP wanted to know what makes our PID lamps last so long? How do we have an 11.7eV lamp th…
