  • No need for repeat calibration

We have developed a new approach for multi-species gas analysis in fixed and mobile form producing rapid, dynamic readouts coupled with the geographic mapping of gas concentrations in real-time. Our units are capable of measuring a large range of gases 'visible' in the UV spectrum using ultraviolet spectroscopy. Our core technology and proprietary software algorithms are supported by international patents. We use a UV lamp to shine light into a gas cell. This beam of light is reflected via a series of mirrors and then collected by a UV spectrometer. Our proprietary software and algorithms then analyse the readings that the spectrometer has collected, typically in 1 second for BTEX gases.

There are no expensive chemicals or coolants to add, no need to wait while the unit analyses the data and, critically, once calibrated, the unit will not need repeat calibration.

Maintenance is minimal, with the main items being replacing the light bulbs every 2000-4000 hours, filters and replacing the batteries every 600+ recharges. We also recommend replacing the mirrors every 1-2 years (depending on environment and use) to maintain the sensitivity. All models in the DV3000 series are designed to enable such regular maintenance to be quick and easy to perform.

The DV3000 is currently optimised for the following species:
BTEX
benzene toluene ethylbenzene
m-xylene o-xylene p-xylene
AQM
nitric oxide nitrogen dioxide sulphur dioxide
ozone    
Others
styrene formaldehyde 1,3-butadiene
 
A large number of other species can be detected by ultraviolet spectroscopy, although most are only found in specialist industrial processes. Please contact us if you need to measure any of the following, and we will advise you on the expected ppb levels our technology can measure down to, and the cost of the specialist calibration required.
