Handheld photoionization detectors (PIDs) are portable detectors used for a variety of applications, including but not limited to:

  • Environmental monitoring
  • Hazardous materials handling
  • Arson investigation 
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Haz-Mat response
  • General worker safety (e.g. indoor air quality monitoring)
  • Confined space entry
  • Benzene detection (Tiger Select)

Handheld PIDs are able to measure the concentration of volatile organic compounds and other gases in the air through the process of photoionization, which occurs when light is absorbed through an atom or a molecule, creating a positive ion.
