Heated VOC analyser goes portable

Signal Group (UK) has launched a portable gas analyser, the SOLAR XPLORE, which apparently brings the advantages of the firm's Flame Ionisation Detection (FID) technology for VOC measurement to a compact, easily transportable device.

Healthy choices helper?

An emerging class of personal air quality monitoring devices fills a need for people who care about pollution exposure in their immediate vicinity. This level of granularity does make a difference, it seems. Envirotec spoke to Rainer Kiirsk, who helped develop the AirSniffler, a seemingly ground-breaking product for its power consumption and sub- 70 price tag, as well as the usefulness of the software that runs alongside it.
Gdansk VOC detector

Simple setup for VOCs

Simple and accurate detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is promised by a new measurement approach developed at Gdansk University of Technology in Poland. Potential applications include air quality analysis and patient health screening.
Protea 200 analyser

Fume faculties

Underpinning the effort to comply with marine emissions regulations is the monitoring of these exhaust gases, and instrumentation seems an indispensable support for marine operators under pressure to make good decisions with respect to things like fuel selection and the specification of scrubber systems. Envirotec asked continuous emissions monitoring expert Protea for insight into the topic.
