ppbRAE Handheld ppb VOC Monitor

The ppbRAE is a highly sensitive handheld VOC monitor that offers true parts per billion (ppb) detection capability. This instrument can be used for routine and specialty applications involving the detection of extremely low level, low vapour pressure, and highly toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Measure total VOC concentrations or use built-in correction factors to measure specific VOCs.
