 Questions, myths and misconceptions about using photoionization detectors

Solvent, fuel and other VOC vapors are pervasively common in many workplace environments. Increased awareness of the toxicity has led to lowered exposure limits, and increased requirements for direct measurement of these dangerous contaminants. Photoionization detector (PID) equipped instruments are increasingly viewed as the best choice for measurement of VOCs at exposure limit concentrations. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding when it comes to this important monitoring technology. Understanding the capabilities as well as the limitations of photoionization detectors is critical to interpreting test results and making decisions based on the use of this important atmospheric monitoring technology.

Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

    1. Describe what VOCs are and why are they dangerous.
    2. Understand how to use PID sensors to measure VOC vapors and make decisions.
    3. Learn what the differences are between PID and LEL sensors.
    4. Describe the most common mistakes users make with PIDs
