                    Simple to install service and calibrate, TVOC requires no hot work permit and the PID sensor is accessible and changeable in a matter of seconds.

                    The TVOC is also available for use with a pumped system for applications where sample conditioning is required.

                    • SF6 GasCheck 6000 leak detector

                    • The ideal low-cost, portable SF6 leak detector

                      The SF6 GasCheck 6000 leak detector is a great device for portable SF6 leak detection. In practical use, it has a detection threshold of 1 x 10-6 mbar l/s, which makes it perfectly suitable for simple leak detection applications on SF6 switchgear.

                      This easy to use processor controlled instrument features both an audible alarm and LED bar graph display, letting you know if a small, medium or big leak has been detected.

                      The SF6 GasCheck 6000 leak detector automatically compensates all ambient influences like temperature changes or movement of air in the room. Intelligent control sets up the instrument appropriately for the ambient environment.

                      The exclusive ‘Auto-Shift’ function compensates for any SF6 concentration that may be present at the measuring site, e.g. caused by previously escaped leakage gas.

                      SF6 GasCheck 6000 automatically detects the highest present gas concentrations and selects the corresponding measuring range. It then uses the present gas concentration as its zero line and begins to look for even higher gas concentrations, which occur when a leak is approached. This will again be indicated audibly and visually enabling you to determine leaks even in an already seriously contaminated area.

                          • Calibrated Leaks

                          • Ion Science calibrated leaks are produced in order for a known leak to be presented to a test system. Should the leak be detected by your gas / leak detector at the correct value then the system is within calibration, giving you confidence in the accuracy of the gas detection instruments upon which you depend.

                            Ion Science produces calibrated leaks that are made to your individual pressure and leak rate specification. Each leak is supplied in its own storage box with a certificate of calibration in accordance with our ISO9001:2008 procedures, using equipment which has been calibrated at a UKAS accredited laboratory. By ensuring our own quality standards we can help you to meet yours.

                            For exceptional stability over time and resistance to corrosion and contamination, all leaks are made from stainless steel. The body has a standard 1/8 BSP inlet and outlet thread and can be supplied with a quick fit staubli fitting, for use with leak testers. The simple screw in, screw out functionality of the calibrated leak is ideal when returning your leak to Ion Science for annual calibration as the leak can be easily removed, placed in its storage box and sent in the post.

                            Ion Science calibrated leaks can be used in conjunction with our CalCheck accessory, an easy to use self calibration instrument. Multiple calibrated leaks can be ordered for use with a CalCheck. Simply unscrew your leak from the base and replace it with a different leak rate. This allows you to conveniently calibrate your instruments to a wide variety of leak rates and gases.
