Benzene monitor for asphalt production and more

| By Gerald Ondrey

The Titan (photo) is a specific fixed gas detector, based on photoionization detection (PID), designed only for the monitoring of benzene. This makes it the perfect choice for use in asphalt manufacturing plants, where benzene is likely to be the most prominent volatile organic compound (VOC) that requires management and monitoring. As a fixed unit, the Titan can be installed at regular distances around sites, and with its “plug and play” installation approach, the Titan can be left monitoring without the need for intervention. Two alarm systems can be set at the user’s convenience, and another two are pre-set relays for immediate warnings, so no exposure incident is ever missed. The Titan offers continuous real-time data feedback of VOC concentrations in the air, taking samples every minute to an accuracy of 0.1 parts per million (ppm) or +10%, whichever is greater. — Ion Science Ltd., Royston, U.K.
