PID Analyzers offers two new lightweight
portable GC (Model 121 & 122 for
environmental, quality control, IH, leak
detection, spill response, homeland
security... applications. These GCs are
extremely easy to use, light weight, &
sensitive when used with our PID. or one
of our excellent GC detectors. These GCs
will go anywhere with their light weight &
rechargeable battery . This new gas
chromatograph is the Model 121.
A companion instrument for the Model 121
and 122 GCs is the Model 102 for finding
hot spots of total VOC in wide area

Principle of Operation
The principle of operation is gas chromatography with a series of sensitive detectors with columns that can be easily interchanged, allowing the GC to be used for a
variety of applications in the field or the
lab. The detector electronics are compact
& modular.
The GC oven is isothermal (30-600C-customer settable) and will accomodate
packed (1/8 or 1/16), capillary (0.53 or
0.32 m id) or micropacked columns on a
2.5 diameter spool) can be used.
PID-description - The process of
photoionization is initiated by the
absorp-tion of a photon of ultraviolet
radiation energetic enough to ionize a
molecule (RH) by the process shown
RH + h RH+ + ewhere h represents a photon (10.6 ev)
with an energy the ionization potential
of species RH. The ions are collected in
an ionization chamber which is adjacent
to the lamp and contains an accelerat-ing
electrode (biased positively) and a
collection electrode where the current is
measured. After amplification, the current
measured is proportional to concentration.

Detectors -description
wl-PID- windowless PID- This PID
usees an Ar carrier gas and an
Argon windowless discharge (11.7
eV) so that compounds with
higher IPs like CH3OH, formaldehyde, chloro alkanes, and ethane
etc. can be detected.
-FPD (S or P) -Flame Photometric
Detector-Sample is burned in a
hydrogen rich flame to produce
chemiluminescence specific for S
@ 394 nm or P @ 525 nm that is
measured with a photomultiper/
-FID- Flame Ionization DetectorSample is burned in a H2/air
flame. The carbons ions produced
are collected in an ionization
chamber where the ion current is
proportional to concentrationDetects Hydrocarbons including
AppplicationsVOCs, aromatics, unsaturated HC, S
compounds and inorganic gases
(H2S, AsH3, PH3, NH3...). It is an ideal
detector for environmental analysis,
and QC (with its low ppb to ppm
detection limits), fenceline, ppmk
