ION Science PTXSLBMPP-0517, TIGER SELECT Benzene Detector- PPM - Handheld 

A revolutionary hand-held detector, Tiger Select can be operated either with a benzene pre-filter tube to detect benzene selectively, or without to detect total aromatic compounds (TAC). For simplicity and ease of use, the Tiger Select has been split into two, user-friendly modes: Basic and Advanced. Both modes are user-selectable. Utilizing the high output Ion Science 10.0 eV lamp configuration, a reading for total aromatic compounds (TACs) is seen immediately on startup. Should aromatics be detected, an Ion Science benzene pre-filter tube can be easily attached to ensure rapid detection and selective measurement of benzene. Tiger Select can also provide 15 minute short term exposure limits (STELs) and 8 hour time weighted averages (TWAs) for TACs. Throughout the measurement process, Tiger Select continues to display real time data, ensuring the final reading represents the full value of actual benzene present. Benzene concentrations are displayed down to ppb levels, giving you the most accurate, reliable data you can count on.

In addition, the unique MiniPID 2 sensor incorporates both anticontamination technology and Fence Electrode technology for extended operation in difficult working environments. Tiger Select can also be used in standard operational mode without the use of a benzene pre-filter tube to deliver active indications of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including benzene at concentrations as low as 1 ppb benzene equivalent. Additionally, Tiger Select may be used alongside the Cub TAC personal PID monitor to provide the ultimate solution for benzene  detection. Visit www.ionscience/cub for more details.
