Photoionization Detectors (PIDs)

Handheld Photoionization Detectors (PIDs)

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

  • Environmental screening
  • Hazardous materials handling
  • Arson investigations
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Haz-Mat response
  • General worker safety (e.g. indoor air quality monitoring)
  • Confined space entry

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.

Photoionization detectors (PIDs) are comprehensive air sampling and gas detection instruments used to account for the total concentration of VOCs in the air, rather than the amount of individual compounds. Our durable, handheld PIDs can be useful for a number of applications, including environmental screening, air sampling and general worker safety, and they produce accurate readings in all environmental conditions.
