The TG-1900-KA portable battery-powered formaldehyde detector from CEA Instruments continuously monitors levels below 0.1 ppm. Featuring an AC adaptor and recorder output, it`s possible to monitor for extended periods with recorded results. The detector, which weighs less than a pound, can operate for 30 hours on battery power. Completely self-contained, it uses no reagents, tape or compressed gases. Using a dedicated electrochemical sensor, unaffected by normal interfering gases including alcohols, the sensor responds in seconds with digital readout in ppm. It has audio and visual alarms that are user adjustable.
The unit is applicable for the continuous monitoring of workplace atmospheres in the manufacture of paper, particle board, plywood, permanent press clothing, dyes, photographic film, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, various plastics and applications involving home insulation and building materials or other areas where formaldehyde may be present.
