Questions, Myths and Misconceptions about Using Photoionization Detectors

Solvent, fuel and other VOC vapors are pervasively common in many workplace environments. Increased awareness of the toxicity has led to lowered exposure limits, and increased requirements for direct measurement of these dangerous contaminants. Photoionization detector (PID) equipped instruments are increasingly viewed as the best choice for measurement of VOCs at exposure limit concentrations. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding when it comes to this important monitoring technology. Understanding the capabilities as well as the limitations of photoionization detectors is critical to interpreting test results and making decisions based on the use of this important atmospheric monitoring technology.
