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.
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
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
