VEHICLE EMISSIONS

RAPID SAMPLING AND ANALYSIS PROVIDES REAL-TIME DETECTION OF HARMFUL EMISSIONS.

ENSURE SAFE CONDITIONS WITH RAPID TESTING

Automotive vehicles release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from various components and as by-products of combustion. These VOCs can be dangerous to human health and harmful to the environment. Some, such as benzene, are classified as human carcinogens. Others are contributors to smog and other environmental hazards. Detecting these emissions and identifying their sources can help reduce public and environmental exposure. There is therefore a need for accessible technology that can provide rapid and comprehensive analysis and produce understandable and useful results.
The NovaTest P300 can rapidly sample and analyze ambient air in any location, making it a useful device for emissions testing. The device samples from the ambient air without any additional equipment or sample preparation required. The compact design of the P300 allows it to conveniently test the air in smaller spaces inaccessible to a traditional benchtop GC. 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 easily be used in the production line, the parking lot, or in inspection shops to quickly evaluate the emissions of a vehicle.
The NovaTest A1000 provides the online monitoring solutions needed for continuous emissions 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 vehicle emissions during production. The A1000 can also operate remotely and so could be used to monitor the air in heavy traffic areas. Continuous monitoring can help ensure VOC concentrations do not exceed regulated limits,  thus protecting the health and safety of humans and the environment.

INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

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.

VEHICLE INDOOR AIR QUALITY

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, so it is important to verify the air quality inside of a vehicle to ensure safe and healthy conditions.

AUTOMOTIVE MATERIAL EMISSIONS

Materials, adhesives, and finishes used in car interiors can emit VOCs when cars are new or when they are exposed to heat. It is important to verify the quality of the materials inside of a car to ensure safe and healthy conditions.
