VOC detection – Volatile organic compounds

VOC (volatile organic compounds) are a huge family of gases and gaseous substances, many of which are considered pollutant, toxic or carcinogenic. Because of their volatile nature, they easily spread into the atmosphere. Thus it is necessary to get protected against them with VOC detection and measurement devices such as a VOC detector.

VOC detection: detectors for volatile organic compounds

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are natural or anthropogenic (manmade). Because of their volatile nature, they easily spread into the atmosphere and their toxicity requires particular monitoring with a VOC detection system.

  • volatile organic compounds detection – voc detector

    According to their nature, VOCs properties can vary. Their effects on health are different as well, from simple olfactory disturbance, irritations and breathing capacities reduction up to mutagenic disorders. VOC detection in toxicity using a VOC meter – rather than in explosive limits – is oftentimes recommended to measure present concentrations…

    Detecting volatile organic compounds can seem illogic. Indeed, even if VOCs can produce explosive mixtures with tens of thousands particles per million (ppm), their major hazard lie in their low concentration toxicity – around few tens of ppm…

  • Which fields of activity need voc detection?

    Because of the extremely large number of substances gathered in this group and their volatile nature, VOC levels can be monitored in many industrial sectors such as (non-exhaustive list):

    . Cosmetics industry: deodorants, disinfectants, nail polish or nail hardener.

    . Medical, paramedical & veterinary sectors: alcohol, bactericidal and insecticides.

    . Food industry: disinfectants.

    . Paper industry: oranges packaging, paper for computers.

    . Industries and usage of printer paint and ink (preservative).

    . Plastic industry: manufacture and use of glues and adhesives.

    . Textile industry: smoothing agents, whitewashing of colored textiles.

    . Leather and fur industry: conservation and leather tanning, preservative.

    . Building disinfection: household products, detergents.

    . Horticulture and agriculture: bactericidals, fungicides and herbicides.

    . Photography: stabilizers and fixers

    . Diesel motor gas emissions.

    . Fumes from wood, coal and polyethylene combustion.

    . Fuel and oil refinery.

    In all of these different fields, it is advised - and sometimes even mandatory - to use VOC detection devices or complete systems to ensure safety.

Colorimetric tubes

The colorimetric gas detection tube system is a simple and accurate solution composed by a manual sampling pump and a specific gas detection tube. They are designed for use together.

  • Gas detector tubes Colorimetric tube
  • Accurate: the sampling pump features a mechanical accuracy piston which creates a vacuum then enables direct reading on the colored tube (colorimetric tube)
  • Swift: one or two pump strokes are enough to draw sample and the value can be directly read on the tube
  • User-friendly: no knowledge, no specific process and no technical competence are required
