AIRGARD® HPA/TIC ambient air analyzer is an ultra-sensitive, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) based gas analyzer designed to rapidly detect toxic gases. This analyzer is capable of detecting parts per billion (ppb) levels of most Hazardous Production Materials (HPMs) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) below Threshold Limit Values (TLV) and/or Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) levels within 20 seconds.
AIRGARD analyzer has been thoroughly tested by the Department of Defense for its sensitivity, specificity, response time, and immunity to false positive alarms caused by the sensing of, and alarming to, everyday benign, non-toxic solvents and industrial chemicals. This immunity to false alarms prevents unwarranted evacuation of buildings, associated interruptions of business and emergency notifications when no toxic materials are present.
