These units use a flame to ionize airborne contaminants. Once they are ionized, they can be detected and measured. FIDs use a hydrogen flame as the means
to ionize organic vapors. FIDs respond to virtually all organic compounds; that is, compounds that contain carbon-hydrogen or carbon-carbon bonds. FIDs
will not respond to inorganic compounds. Inside the detector chamber, the sample is exposed to a hydrogen flame which ionizes the organic vapors.
LDARtools phx42™ FID Analyzer
The phx42™ FID technology is designed for the environmental and oil & gas industries to incorporate a safer, more efficient LDAR (Leak Detection and Repair) program. The detection of fugitive emissions and leaks with the phx42™ is immediate – leading to prompt repairs, reduced emissions, and conformity to regulatory inspections.
Thermo Scientific™ TVA2020
Toxic Vapor Analyzer
The Thermo Scientific™ TVA2020 Toxic Vapor Analyzer is the only intrinsically safe, portable field analyzer using both Flame Ionization Detection (FID) and Photo Ionization Detection (PID) technologies.
