Photo Ionization Detector (PID Glass Bodies)

Photo Ionization Detector (PID Glass Bodies)

The Photo Ionization Detector (PID) is a portable vapor and gas detector that detects a variety of organic compounds. Photo ionization occurs when an atom or molecule absorbs light of sufficient energy to cause an electron to leave and create a positive ion.
The PID is comprised of an ultraviolet lamp that emits photons that are absorbed by the compound in an ionization chamber. Ions (atoms or molecules that have gained or lost electrons and thus have a net positive or negative charge) produced during this process are collected by electrodes. The current generated provides a measure of the analyte concentration. Because only a small fraction of the analyte molecules are actually ionized, this method is considered nondestructive, allowing it to be used in conjunction with another detector to confirm analytical results. In addition, PIDs are available in portable hand-held models and in a number of lamp configurations. Results are almost immediate.

Moores Glassworks manufacture glass bodies for PIDs. They are manufactured on automated lathes which have been built in house. These auto lathes produce excellent quality and also allow Moores to repeat this high standard which is very important when manufacturing high yields. All glass bodies are manufactured to the customers requirements
