OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY

CONVENIENT, EFFICIENT AND ACCURATE DETECTION OF VOLATILE COMPOUNDS AT SUB-PPB LEVEL ENSURES SAFER WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT.

SAFER WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENTS

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are numerous, varied, and ubiquitous, including both human-made and naturally occurring chemical compounds. Some VOCs are dangerous to human health and harmful to the environment. VOCs can be released when handling common workplace materials such as solvents, paints, sealants, and adhesives. Anthropogenic VOCs are regulated by law, especially indoors, where concentrations are the highest. Air quality monitoring with accurate, real-time detection is important for ensuring safe working conditions.
Currently, four-gas monitors are commonly used for real-time air monitoring in industry. These monitors typically only measure oxygen, the lower explosive limit of combustible gases, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen sulfide. As a result, they fail to detect many common toxic gases, such as VOCs, that are common constituents or by-products of many industrial processes. This causes employees to be often under-protected, which can have negative health consequences, or over-protected, which can limit productivity.
The NovaTest P300 can rapidly test ambient air in any location, making it a useful tool to quickly determine the safety of a workplace environment. 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 leaks and other problems so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible.
The NovaTest A1000 provides continuous online monitoring solutions, making it a useful device for occupational health and safety monitoring. The A1000 can sample and analyze ambient air autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. This can be used to ensure OSHA regulations are being met and to protect the safety of employees. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to respond quickly to minimize damages when leaks or other problems are detected.

INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

  • Faster analysis is needed to provide the immediate feedback necessary for effective responses and compliance with OSHA regulations, slow response times hinder the effectiveness of solutions when working with harmful VOCs
  • Chemically diverse VOCs can make comprehensive analysis complex and time consuming
  • Equipment must function reliably on-site and in changing conditions

OUR SOLUTIONS

  • Automated sampling and rapid analysis of a wide range of VOCs with instantly calculated results provides immediate feedback that is easy to understand, so users can quickly implement the necessary health and safety measures
  • Multiple VOCs can be detected and analyzed in a matter of minutes with a single test that requires no professional GC background to perform
  • Devices are designed to be used in the field and are very robust, with low maintenance and low consumable requirements
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 real-time comprehensive and rapid analysis of VOCs with high sensitivity and accuracy. It can be operated remotely, saving considerable time and money with autonomous sampling and testing.

ADVANCED SOFTWARE

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.
