Portable benzene gas detector by Ion Science

Tiger benzene detector [portable benzene gas detector]

Titan, portable benzene gas detector

The Tiger Select is a portable benzene gas detector by Ion Science.

The benzene gas detector provides rapid and accurate detection of benzene and of Total Aromatic Compounds (TACs).

The benzene gas detector detects and displays live TAC readings. The detachable benzene pre-filter tube further ensures the fast detection and selective measurement of benzene. The pre-filter tube displays Benzene concentrations in parts per billion (ppb) levels for accurate and reliable data.

The pre-filter tube can be detached to activate standard VOC detection, which includes measurement of benzene levels.

The Tiger Select incorporates the patented PID technology from Ion Science. The benzene detector is resistant to humidity and has a contamination prevention design, which extends the run time of the device.

The detector is easy to use and upgrade. These feature makes the detector a reliable investment, with the lowest running cost in the market.
