Plant & worker safety
Published: 28 April, 2016
ION SCIENCE has announced the launch of its Falco series of fixed continuous VOC (volatile organic compound) monitors for the on-going protection of workers operating in potentially hazardous industrial environments, such as refineries, petrochemical plants and laboratories. Incorporating first of a kind ‘typhoon’ technology for added reliability, Falco is specially designed to work in condensing atmospheres and extreme weather conditions.
Ion Science says reinforcing its position at the forefront of gas detection instrumentation for occupational health and the environment, Falco boasts fast response times and several innovative design features. The instrument’s ‘typhoon’ technology prevents condensation forming on the sensor and removes the risk of the system short circuiting – said to make it ideal for use in harsh weather conditions.
Ion Science MD, Duncan Johns, comments: “Falco will set a new benchmark in fixed VOC monitoring for hazardous areas and help ensure plant-wide safety and on-going protection of employees likely to be exposed to VOCs. The ‘typhoon’ technology was developed as a result of feedback from customers who said that similar monitors had failed in extreme weather conditions. Our R&D team discovered that where ambient air quickly changes from cold to hot, it generates condensation in the sensor which adversely affects performance. The new ‘typhoon’ technology enables the system to cope with these sudden fluctuations.”
