If you think volatile organic compounds (VOCs) only exist in industrial chemistry plants, then you are wrong. VOCs come from various sources, such as indoor paints, cleaning products, refrigerants, gas and fuel, vehicle interior material decomposition, polluted groundwater, electronics manufacturing, medicine production, food and beverage production, manufacturing plants, and so forth. Air monitoring can be used to identify pollution sources to prevent damage to human or environmental health. Landfill and biogas monitoring is important for protecting infrastructure and the general public. VOCs from landfills and biogases can cause negative health effects and corrosion, as well as a severe odor nuisance.
The NovaTest P300 can rapidly test ambient air in any location, making it a useful device for detecting harmful VOCs. 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 pollution sources so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible.
The NovaTest A1000 provides continuous online monitoring solutions, making it a useful device for air quality monitoring. The A1000 can sample and analyze ambient air autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. Because of its ability to operate remotely, the A1000 can also be used for unattended monitoring to ensure EPA emissions regulations are met and to protect the safety of surrounding communities. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to respond quickly to minimize damages when high pollution levels are detected.
