- Laboratory quality results in very low concentrations
- Benzene measurement starting from 50 ppb
- No consumables per measurement
“Seeker” mode is a broadband measurement for pre-testing and localising measurement points. It allows continuous, direct-reading measurement of the total concentration of all VOCs present. “Seeker” mode is similar to using a single-PID gas measurement device.
“Analysis” mode allows selective measurement for monitoring specific toxic compounds. Pre-defined target compounds can be precisely measured in seconds. “Analysis” mode is similar to gas chromatography analyses conducted in the laboratory.
The Dräger X-pid 9000/9500 requires no preparation and is ready to use after a brief start-up phase. Selective measurement in “Analysis” mode takes only a few seconds. A benzene measurement starts with the push of a button and is completed in only 30 seconds. After another 60 seconds, the device is ready to measure for benzene again. Compared with other detection systems, the Dräger X-pid 9000/9500 saves considerable time and enables further monitoring to be undertaken. Simultaneous measurement of other compounds, like benzene and butadiene, further reduces testing times.
Because no consumables are used to take measurements, operating costs can be reduced. For users with high measurement needs, the Dräger X-pid 9000/9500 quickly pays for itself. For example, it requires no pre-tubes, also making it easier to use and preventing user errors. On the basis of 200 measurements per year, the Dräger X-pid 9000/9500 is generally more cost-effective than comparable measurement systems.
The selective measurement mode “Analysis” relies on technology which separates individual compounds present in mixed gases. This makes it possible to conduct a compound-specific measurement for benzene, even if other VOCs like toluene and xylene are also present in high concentrations. Cross-sensitivities for benzene are reduced to a minimum. This reduces the number of false-positive measurement results and false alarms.
The influence on measurement results by environmental factors like variable ambient temperature or high humidity are reduced to a minimum. The sensor unit maintains a constant temperature above the ambient air temperature and separates water vapour from the target compounds. This ensures reliable measurements under tough environmental conditions.
