Measuring VOC, Volatile Organic Compounds, or solvent in the air is a challenging task for companies. The instruments are expensive and the calibration and interpretation of the results are complex and need to be executed by experienced and skilled professionals. At Pure Infinity we’ve got the solution: meet our VOC measuring device, the Pure FID.
Why measure VOC’s or solvents?
The industry has a need for knowledge of the VOC’s that their factory emits and the solvents that remain in the building. This has two main reasons: an increasing demand for indoor quality in production facilities and for reducing the VOC and solvent emissions. The latter is also a legal requirement. You first need to know what is emitted, in order to know which specific solution can solve the VOC problem. Whether it is sufficient to simply change the production process or if it is necessary to install a VOC treatment system. The first step in this process is the measurement of emissions in the factory. Because production is always fluctuating, VOC concentrations also variate. It is recommended to measure for a longer period of time in order to have an overall view on the VOC concentrations and loadings. Measuring for a couple of days, up to a several weeks, gives a full insight into the VOC problem.
