Model PI51 & PI52 - PID DetectorClick here to enlarge
- The photoionization detector (PID) is used for the measurement of low (ppb) organic and inorganic species that can be ionized by the UV lamp (9.5, 10.6 & 11.7). Nearly 20,000 of these detectors have been sold worldwide since it was first released by HNU Systems in 1976. It has been used for the measurement of VOCís in water (EPA method 602, EPA Method 50--, EPA Method SW846Ö, numerous OSHA methods), quality controlÖ There are two Models that are described below:
- The Model PI52 has a PID, a power supply for the lamp and bias and an electrometer. The electrometer output is 0-10 VDC. The customer needs a separate ADC channel to feed the signal into the GCís data system. Alternately, PID Analyzers sells a data system (Model 50) that will feed the signal into a separate PC.
- The Model PI51 has a PID and a power supply for the lamp and bias. Here, the customer uses the electrometer (FID type with a positive bias) already in the Gas chromatograph. This should already have the ADC connection to the customer GC data system.
- The PID is one of the most sensitive detectors available for VOCís. It has the widest dynamic range of any detector available (108) and does not require any support gases except the carrier.
