Ion Science has introduced the Phocheck Tiger photoionisation detector (PID) for rapid, accurate detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The instrument’s PID technology provides a dynamic detection range of 1ppb to 20,000ppm.

Phocheck Tiger is pre programmed with more than 450 response factors.

Its software features mean the instrument requires no complicated programming and set-up procedures to perform both basic and advanced functions.

The instrument has a fast response time and is quick to clear down.

Phocheck Tiger can be connected directly to a PC via the USB for fast data download capabilities.

Wireless data download via a Bluetooth interface is available as an option.

The instrument’s Fence Electrode Technology has received independent verification for speed and accuracy, effectively minimising contamination effects.

The instrument’s high performance in high humidity environments is achieved without impairing other features.

Phocheck Tiger has been designed for the safe replacement of batteries in hazardous environments.

Long-life rechargeable Li-ion batteries give up to 30 hours of use.

Fast battery charging allows the instrument to be fully charged in 6.5 hours, while eight hours of use can be achieved from 1.5 hours charge.

The six-pin miniPID detector cell with anti-contamination design extends run time in the field.

Low-cost filters and lamps can be changed in seconds, minimising downtime.

Inexpensive disposable parts mean Phocheck Tiger has low running costs.

The detector can be upgraded with a range of functions to choose from.

A base unit can be upgraded with data logging, health and safety and ppb options, remotely, without needing to be returned to the factory.

Phocheck Tiger has a rugged design and its protective, removable rubber boot withstands harsh environments.

The large, clear back-lit display allows for easy viewing in any light condition.

An integrated torch is designed for directing the instrument’s probe into dimly lit areas.

The device offers simple keypad operation with an icon-driven menu.

The illuminated software keys are large enough to be operated even when wearing thick gloves.

The instrument has two 95dBA audible alarms, two bright flashing LEDs and a vibration alarm.

Each function can be selected, switched off or turned down as required.

IECEx, UL and CSA approved, Phocheck Tiger is globally certified as intrinsically safe for use in hazardous areas.

Designed to IP65, the instrument provides optimal resistance to moisture, dust and contamination.

Target industries and applications for Phocheck Tiger include industrial safety, environmental, petrochemical, chemical, indoor air quality and hazardous materials.

Phocheck Tiger is available from Ion Science or through its global network of distributors and comes with a five-year warranty as standard.

Ion Science manufactures and distributes a unique portfolio of technologically advanced gas detection equipment.


The range comprises of hand-held and fixed photoionisation detection (PID) instruments with a detection range of ppb to 10,000 ppm for volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and other toxic gases. Also available are leak detectors for the detection of SF6 gas in high voltage switchgear and fixed or roaming corrosion monitors for the detection of hydrogen flux in steel pipes. Ion Science instruments are suitable for a wide range of industries and applications that include environmental, landfill, brownfield, petrochemical, first response, industrial safety and confined space entry.
