VOC Detector | Ion Science - PhoCheck Tiger

Supplier: Air-Met Scientific

The Ion Science PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector is a revolutionary hand held PID instrument for rapid, accurate detection of volatile organic compounds.


The Ion Science PhoCheck Tiger is a robust hand held VOC detector that provides a dynamic detection range of 1 parts per billion (ppb) to 20,000 parts per million (ppm), offering the widest measurement range of any other VOC detector on the market.

With no complicated set up procedures, the PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector is ready to use straight out of the box to perform basic functions and provides the best available VOC detection and software features available.

With up to 30 hours of operation per full charge, the PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector has the fastest response time on the market of just two seconds, and is just as quick to clear down. The instrument can be connected directly to a PC via the USB offering extremely fast data download capabilities. Wireless data download via a Bluetooth interface is available as an option.

The unique six pin miniPID detector cell with anti-contamination design dramatically extends run time in the field. Low cost filters and lamps can be easily changed in seconds, minimising instrument downtime. Inexpensive disposable parts mean the PhoCheck Tiger VOC detector has the lowest running costs on the market. 

PhoCheck Tiger is a fully upgradeable VOC detector with multiple functions to choose from. A base unit can be upgraded with data logging, health and safety and ppb options, remotely, without needing to be returned to the factory.

PhoCheck Tiger offers simple, one handed operation for easy VOC detection. Its rugged design and protective, removable rubber boot withstand the harshest environments. The large, clear back-lit display allows for easy viewing in any light condition. An integrated torch is designed for directing the instrument’s probe into dimly lit areas.
