NEW Benzene Specific Monitor Complies With Upcoming Benzene Long Term Exposure Limit Changes

Visitors to Offshore Europe 2023 in Aberdeen,Scotland (5–8th September) can see the world’s only commercially available, truly selective, fixed continuous benzene monitor at the IONScience booth 1G24 in Hall 1.

Discover the future of innovation at Offshore Europe 2023, where cutting-edge technology meets unparalleled performance! ION Science are thrilled to introduce their revolutionary new product, available for all attendees to see first-hand at Booth 1G24. With its state-of-the-art features and unmatched reliability, Titan 2 is set to transform the offshore landscape. Don't miss the opportunity to be among the first to experience the next generation of benzene monitoring, secure a one-to-one demo of Titan 2 here:

Workers in the oil and gas industry, including the offshore petroleum industry, may face the risk of exposure to benzene. Benzene is a hazardous group 1 carcinogen that can cause leukaemia and lymphoma and is subject to very strict workplace exposure limits. Benzene limits have been lowered continuously in recent years, therefore, it is essential for companies to implement safety measures and monitoring systems to protect the health and safety of their workers.

Current EU 8-hour TWA for benzene is 1 ppm (3.25 mg/m3). However, from 5th April 2024, the long-term exposure limit will be reduced to 0.5 ppm – and will be cut again from April 2026 to just 0.2 ppm.

The demand for heightened sensitivity driven by regulatory requirements finds its perfect match in the Titan 2. ION Science’ pioneering technology, combined with the industry-leading PID sensor, empowers the Titan 2 to excel, significantly reducing cross-sensitivity issues and enabling rapid detection of benzene at ultra-low levels, as little as 0.02 parts per million (20 parts per billion).

The Titan 2 captures a gas sample once every 60 seconds. The sample is then conditioned within a further 60 seconds to allow precise benzene measurement, ensuring a consistent flow of real-time data. The latest model now includes the piezo electric micro pump, enhancing pressure and flow accuracy, guaranteeing swift responsiveness and unmatched reliability.

Titan 2 boasts visible alarm capabilities that activate alerts when benzene concentrations reach two operator-configurable levels. With twin relay outputs, users can seamlessly integrate the unit with existing site alarm systems. Additionally, the user-friendly firmware simplifies the calibration procedure.

Summarising, Duncan Johns (Group Managing Director) says: “Benzene is one of the more dangerous VOCs so the Titan 2’s ability to reliably speciate this gas is extremely important in the protection of lives, and with lowering regulatory limits, the instrument’s enhanced sensitivity is a major advantage.”

ION Science Ltd will be showcasing their complete instrument range offering including their personal wearables, portable handheld devices, and fixed gas detection solutions.

The NEW Panther gas leak detector will also be on show, capable of detecting helium, hydrogen and ammonia leaks. Panther has a coloured LCD display and a built-in Gas-Table which enables the measurement of concentration and leak rates in a variety of user-selectable units. All measurements can be logged internally and downloaded via Bluetooth or USB.

Visit ION Science in Hall 1, Booth 1G24 and speak to the expert team and discuss your application and gas detection requirements.
