POLARIS FID
Portable TOC Analyser for Stack Emissions
The Portable FID for Stack Emissions:
lightweight, compact, ergonomic, safe
"POLARIS FID" analyser realized by POLLUTION is an on-site monitor for the detection of total organic carbon
(TOC) in compliance with EN12619 and EN13526.
It is a fully portable instrument because it incorporates everything needed for the analysis; for that reason it is useful
for environmental screening as well.
FID POLARIS RUNS WITH BATTERIES THANKS TO THE
EXCLUSIVE DESIGN WITH LOW POWER CONSUMPTION
The miniaturization of the flame ionization detector (FID) and
heated volumetric sampling system result in outstanding
energy savings and thus allows the use of built-in
rechargeable batteries. It also ensures the highest accuracy
and repeatability of sequences of analysis.
KEY FEATURES
• Rechargeable battery operations
fully portable
• Integrated hydrogen cartridge
safe and compact
• Zero Air and Span Gas integrated into the chassis
ergonomic and lightweight
• Heated volumetric sampling system
accurate and precise
• Alphanumeric display and USB port for uploading
methods and downloading data analysis

APPLICATIONS
• Οn-site analysis of TOC (Total Organic Carbon) in
Stack Emissions, in accordance with EN 13526,
EN 12619, EPA Method 25A
• Methane/NMHC Automatic analysis
• Environmental screening
FID POLARIS FEEDS THE FLAME THROUGH AN
INTEGRATED AND SAFE HYDROGEN STORAGE
The compact hydrogen storage cartridge (using an innovative
metal-hydride technology) is integrated into the instrument
and self-desorbs the hydrogen fuel to the flame detector at
appropriate pressure and flow.
It is very safe and it does not require pressure regulators; it is
a very handy instrument because it allows to perform analysis
for many hours.
Because of its peculiarities, it can be carried by car and by
plane without any restriction. It can be easily recharged in a
few hours in the laboratory using a standard hydrogen
cylinder with regulator or with an hydrogen generator at high
output pressure.
FID POLARIS IS BUILT TO RESIST TO THE MOST
DIFFICULT OPERATING CONDITIONS
The instrument is designed to be resistant to samples with high
temperature and humidity: this is a typical working condition with
hot samples during stack monitoring.
The detector manifold, the sampling lines and all the valves are
integrated into a single block and uniformly heated, in order to
eliminate all possible cold spots and avoiding local sample
condensation.
ACCESSORIES
POLARIS - NMHC Docking Station
External Catalyst for automatic
Methane/NMHCs analysis.
POLARIS FID controls the
Docking Station to measure
sequentially total hydrocarbons and/or methane only.
Automatically it calculates the difference between them
reporting the NMHC value.
The Docking Station also powers POLARIS FID and
heated lines. Optional internal temperature controller for
the heated line, range 80°C – 200°C.
FID POLARIS IS COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT AND ERGONOMIC
FOR EASY USE
POLARIS - H2 Recharging Station
The
instrument
incorporates
everything you need for analysis:
batteries,
hydrogen
storage
cartridge, pump and Activated
Charcoal filter for the flame air, span
gas cylinder for the calibration and
technical air cylinder for high
accuracy and precision. The sample
inlet, with double filter, is compatible
with all sampling lines on the market.
It is equipped with comfortable
shoulder strap for field use, also
available as a front-bag.
High pressure Hydrogen generator
designed for the fast recharge of the
Hydrogen cartridges thanks to a very
high purity output.
It only requires electric power and
demineralized water.
POLARIS - H2 Recharging Interface
Connection Kit for the recharge of the
Hydrogen cartridges through external
pressurized cylinder. It is equipped
with safety valves.
THE INSTRUMENT OPERATES IN COMPLETE AUTONOMY,
AND CONTROLS THE ENTIRE ANALYTICAL PROCESS
The integrated microprocessor automatically controls several
parameters: ignition and flame monitoring, setup of parameters
chosen by the user according to the analytical method, diagnostic
checks, life monitoring of the gas cans and energy reserves,
sampling lines cleaning cycles, calibration procedures.
