REPORT TITLE

Thermo FID PT Total Volatile Organic Compound Analyser

ABSTRACT

This report provides the results of tests conducted on a gas analyser manufactured by MESSANALYSENTECHNIK GMBH. This instrument is a production instrument manufactured in Germany. The instrument was tested according to a test programme prepared by the laboratory and EXERA, and approved by PANAMETRICS. The Thermo FID PT analyser itself features measurement ranges that may be selected from 0-1 to 0-500,000 mgC/m3. Zero and sensitivity calibration may be performed automatically. Various units may beselected (ppm, mg/m3, % vol, etc.). The analyser provides analogue outputs 0-20mA/4-20mA. The measurement principle is based on flame ionisation detection (FID). Organic compounds are ionised when they burn in a hydrogen - oxygen flame; the discharge current of the ions on an electrode is converted into voltage and then processed.
