Air quality monitoring of volatile organic compounds with PID - National Clean Air Day 2022

On the 16th of June this year, National Clean Air Day is observed. Clean Air Day aims to encourage awareness of air pollution and what everyone can do to improve air quality (both indoor and outdoor) and ways to reduce pollution by making cleaner, greener choices to improve air quality for everyone.

Protecting lives and preserving the environment is the vision of ION Science. To achieve these goals, ION strives to be the global leader in the design and manufacture of the most advanced PID (photoionisation detection) technology in the world.

Breathing poor quality air can have negative effects on both immediate and long-term health. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that up to 99% of the global population breathes polluted air.

Awareness of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and the role they play in poor air quality in urban environments has seen a significant increase in recent years. There are many projects to monitor and control levels of pollutants such as near schools and hospitals, and schemes to promote alternative methods of transport where traffic pollution may be diverted, or alternative means of transport be encouraged.

Additionally, there has also been an increase in awareness of the importance of indoor air quality and the prevalence of VOCs indoors, where they need to be strictly controlled such as in clean rooms, or where they can rapidly increase to dangerous levels, such as on assembly lines or in paint shops. This requires accurate monitoring to minimise exposure to any compounds that may be immediately dangerous to life or damaging to long-term health.

VOCs have a range of toxicity levels and must be detected accurately and rapidly across a wide dynamic range of concentrations, from highly sensitive sub-part per billion measurements to wide range measurements such as tens of thousands of parts per million.

ION Science designs and manufactures industry-leading photoionisation detection sensors (PIDs) that allow targeted measurements for specific applications. This empowers end-users with accurate data to make informed decisions and take the correct action when needed to arrest and reverse increases in VOCs and other pollutants to improve air quality, save lives, and preserve the environment.

ION Science is proud to have over 30 years of experience in the continual research and development, manufacture and distribution of PID sensors. Most recently their work has been recognised with the Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation for their MiniPID sensor range.

For air quality to improve, monitoring and detection is essential to understand the landscape and implement appropriate levels of protection. ION Science is proud that their range of PID sensors can play a part in helping keep people and the environment safe from harmful VOCs and contribute to the protection of health in the long term.
