AUTOMOTIVE MATERIAL EMMISIONS

A COMPACT GC CAN TEST FOR VOCS IN PLACES INACCESSIBLE TO TRADITIONAL BENCHTOP GCS AND CAN HELP ENSURE SAFETY AND QUALITY WITH A DETECTION LIMIT OF SUB-PPB.

GUARANTEE QUALITY AND COMPLIANCE

VOC concentrations inside vehicles can reach levels significantly higher than what is recommended for indoor environments. Materials, adhesives, and finishes used in car interiors can emit these chemicals when cars are new or when they are exposed to heat. Exposure can heighten allergy and asthma symptoms and cause irritation to the eyes, nose, skin, and throat. Some VOCs are also believed to cause cancer and other neurological issues. It is therefore important to verify the quality of the materials inside of a car to ensure safe and healthy conditions.
Monitoring material emissions on-site with immediate results makes it possible to detect concentrations of VOCs that exceed a certain threshold limit. This allows manufacturers to resolve the issue in a timely manner and before any final products are sold to consumers. This practice would also enable manufacturers to optimize production processes to reduce product losses and guarantee quality.
The NovaTest P300 can rapidly sample and analyze ambient air in any location, making it a useful device for air quality testing. The P300 is capable of detecting a wide range of compounds with high sensitivity in a single test, and the system automatically generates an instant report with calculated results. These features can be used to efficiently identify material emissions problems so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible.
The NovaTest A1000 provides the online monitoring solutions needed for continuous air quality monitoring. The A1000 can sample and analyze ambient air autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. This makes the A1000 a useful online solution capable of testing material emissions during production. This process would save considerable production time and allow manufacturers to guarantee quality and compliance with regulations.

INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

  • Conventional testing techniques are slow and can delay production, faster sampling and analysis with high sensitivity is needed to provide the immediate feedback necessary for effective responses
  • Comprehensive analysis often requires multiple tests with multiple techniques, making testing complex
  • Material emissions can contain a wide range of harmful VOCs from numerous sources

OUR SOLUTIONS

  • Automatic sampling and rapid analysis of a wide range of VOCs with instantly calculated results provides immediate feedback that is easy to understand, and continuous online solutions can be applied in the production process to save time
  • Multiple VOCs can be detected and analyzed in a single test that requires no professional GC background to perform
  • Customized analysis methods are available to ensure comprehensive analysis can be achieved by a single test
P300

FIELD TESTING SOLUTION

The NovaTest P300 – Compact gas chromatograph capable of detecting trace concentrations of VOCs

RAPID

The P300 needs only 2 minutes to analyze BTEX samples, saving considerable sampling and analysis time

RELIABLE

The system automatically identifies peaks and generates an instant report in just minutes while maintaining high resolution and accuracy. The FWHM (full width at half maximum) for each component does not exceed 5 seconds.

EFFICIENT

Testing requires only your P300. The P300 will pump in the surrounding air automatically without the need for additional sampling equipment. Analysis can be completed using built-in test methods without entering numerous parameters.

CONTINUOUS MONITORING SOLUTION

The NovaTest A1000 – Online gas chromatograph capable of detecting trace concentrations of VOCs

CONTINUOUS, UNATTENDED, REMOTE MONITORING

The A1000 provides rapid and comprehensive analysis of VOCs with high sensitivity and accuracy. It can be operated remotely, saving considerable time and money with autonomous sampling and testing.

ADVANCED SOTWARE

The NovaSoft software is designed to be a powerful tool for the user while also being easy to use. System parameters are preset to optimize performance, and resulting data is automatically analyzed to generate quantified results.

EFFICIENT

A1000 is designed to operate unattended for extended periods of time and therefore requires very little maintenance. Sampling, testing, and cleaning procedures are performed automatically.
