The presence of odor-causing compounds, such as sulfur organic compounds, is often a major reason for complaints about air pollution. Odors can be emitted from a variety of sources including petrochemical refineries, paper factories, fertilizer production, landfills, sewage treatment plants, and so forth. Even low concentrations of these compounds are able to produce odors detectable by the human nose, so it is important to be able to monitor such compounds at very low concentrations.
Monitoring the air on-site with immediate results makes it possible to detect the presence of small concentrations of odorous VOCs before they become a larger problem.
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. Because of its compact design, the P300 can be easily transported to any location for odor detection. These features can be used to efficiently identify air quality problems so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible.
The NovaTest A1000 provides the continuous online monitoring solutions needed for an air monitoring station. The A1000 can sample and analyze ambient air autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to examine changing conditions over time and identify pollution sources or events.
