Handheld VOC gas detector by Ion Science

Tiger VOC detector [handheld VOC gas detector]

Tiger handheld VOC gas detector

The tiger handheld VOC gas detector is manufactured by Ion Science.

The gas detector provides rapid and accurate detection of volatile organic compounds (VOC). The detector incorporates patented photo ionization detector (PID) technology from Ion Science. The VOC detector is resistant to humidity and has an anti-contamination design, which extends the run time of the device in the field.

The rugged design and detachable protective cover enables the VOC detector to withstand harsh environments.

The handheld VOC gas detector provides the widest measurement range and the fastest response time. The detector is easy to use and easy to upgrade. These features make the detector a reliable, long term investment.

The Tiger VOC detector is used and trusted by many major gas detection companies around the world.
