Introduction
Benzene gas is a carcinogen often associated with petrochemical processing but it is also used as a solvent
in the production of drugs, plastics, synthetic rubbers and dyes. Photo ionization detectors (PID) readily detect
a wide range of VOC gases of which includes benzene.
Gases that are cross sensitive to benzene will result in significant errors in reading which are unacceptable
when occupational exposure levels are set around 1ppm.
The Tiger Select has been developed to give an accurate and repeatable measurement of benzene gas
specifically to sub ppm levels.
The Tiger Select has two methods of operation; standard TAC operation which identifies the presence of Total
Aromatic Compounds (which include benzene), and Tube operation which then identifies the specific benzene
content. This two stage approach avoids using filter tube unnecessarily; if there are no TAC gases present
there is also no benzene.
The Tiger Select uses a 10.0 eV light source so many
of the gases associated with benzene are ignored.
The remaining gases associated with benzene are
removed within a benzene pre-filter tube.
Note: n-butane, n-pentane, ethylene, propylene,
ethanol and ethyl acetate are not shown on this
illustration, however they are also beyond the detection
range of the 10.0 eV lamp so are not detected.
Unrivalled Gas Detection.Page 6 of 49
ionscience.com
TIGER SELECT MANUAL
Ion Science Ltd
Lamp output
The number of gases a PID can detectable directly relates to the maximum photon energy (units eV) of the
PID lamp being used. The higher the photon energy the more gases can be detected
10.6 eV lamp window
Additional 10.0 eV lamp window mounted in the electrode stack
Important
Always recalibrate the Tiger Select after servicing, particularly if the lamp or electrode stack is cleaned or
replaced.
Filter tubes
Benzene Pre filter tubes absorb many VOC gases however the benzene content passes through. The gas
sample must be drawn through the tube to condition it before the absorption level becomes stable. Please
see the leaflet supplied with the pack of tubes for maximum absorption levels.
Various VOC
gases
Benzene
Direction of gas flow
Important
During the benzene measurement, the Yellow/Orange indicating layer turns brown or green in the presence
of other aromatic hydrocarbons and/or benzene hydrocarbons. If this colouring is longer than the ¾ marking,
the filter capacity of the tube is not sufficient anymore and the benzene display may not be accurate.
¾ marking
Tube holder
Safety Advice – Tube disposal
Dispose of tubes according to local regulations. Do not draw humid air for extended periods, or any liquid
water, through the tubes as corrosive liquids could be created which will damage the instrument. “

Main Screen Area
During normal operation this area displays the readings in four large numbers, with the units of measurement
below.
During setup and adjustment, a function bar overlays the main screen.
Start up
Using your Tiger Select
When the Select is first switched on, the instrument will start up in Basic mode as default. However, it is
possible to set the unit to always switch on in Advanced mode, or to “Ask” the user during the initial switch on
routine; this is configurable via Tiger PC.
If required, the Select can be upgraded with additional features: PPB sensitivity, Health & Safety, Data
logging options: Single-log, Multi-log.
Basic Mode start up
Basic mode has been designed to incorporate the core functions for total aromatic compound (TAC)
detection, for greatest efficiency and ease of use when using the Tiger Select.
The default settings for Selects in this mode are as follows:
10.0eV lamp
TAC gas
PPM
Backlight adjusts according to ambient light
The user can change various Basic mode settings via Tiger PC, including the following: gas, backlight,
sound, vibrate, units, sleep during PC connect, zeroing, zones, and data log sampling (if enabled).
In this mode, the display shows a live reading of gas concentration. As standard, this mode will operate using
0.01 ppm sensitivity for TAC and 0.1 ppm sensitivity for all other selectable compounds, unless ppb
sensitivity has been activated. If data logging has been purchased, the user will need to set up the preferred
settings via the configuration screen of Tiger PC. Please refer to the Tiger PC software section of this
manual for further details.
Unrivalled Gas Detection.Page 11 of 49

TIGER SELECT MANUAL
Ion Science Ltd
The Basic mode display offers two functions; Tube mode, and Calibration.
Button A:
Tube mode
Tube mode is designed to identify the level of benzene gas present after a significant background has been
identified. The Tube mode allows users to measure an accurate level of benzene using the benzene pre-filter
tube. The initial benzene test has a test time which varies with temperature. This test time is required to
condition the tube which thereafter offer a proportional output relating to the benzene being sampled.
Please refer to the ‘Basic: Tube Mode’ section of this manual for details of the Tube Mode procedure.
The Tube mode results will be automatically logged, which can later be reviewed in the Health & Safety
screen via Tiger PC.
Please note: A tube calibration must be carried out before Tube mode can be used. The following icon will
appear until a Tube calibration is carried out:
To carry out a tube calibration please refer to the calibration section of this manual.
IMPORTANT: When entering Tube mode the pump will stop until the test cycle begins. This is not a fault
condition. The initial gas sample from the tube is used to set the zero, therefore, it is essential that a clean
tube is used.
Button B:
Calibration
When selected, the user is presented with two options:
1. TUBE calibration:
A tube calibration is required before Tube mode can be used and should be carried out as part of regular
maintenance, as well as when a new batch of tubes are used. Batch numbers can be located on the tube
box packaging.
2. PID calibration:
Factory: Users can set their instruments to operate using the factory calibrated values, however, the
actual calibration function cannot be carried out by the user. The instrument must be returned to Ion Science
Ltd or an authorised service centre.
Custom: Users can carry out a custom calibration with the 10.0eV mini PID. Custom PID calibration
should be carried out as part of regular instrument maintenance.
Zero: option allows the user to either set the instrument to the selected calibration zero (Absolute
Mode), or to zero against the ambient (Relative mode).
When selected ‘Absolute mode’ uses fixed calibration zero (either Factory or Custom
calibration).
When selected, ‘Relative mode’ sets the zero level to the ambient.
Please refer to the calibration section of this manual for full details on calibration procedures.

Calibration
Tube Calibration (Basic and Advanced mode)
The Tiger Select has a separate calibration set aside for
tube mode. Please note that a tube calibration must be
carried out before access to tube mode is allowed.
The Tube / Select calibration settings can be adjusted on
the configuration screen in Tiger PC or directly via the
instrument. Benzene gas must be selected when using a
benzene pre filter however the calibration gas concentration
can be adjusted.
Frequency of calibration
The frequency at which the Tiger Select is calibrated can vary considerably. Changes in environmental
conditions, frequency of use or the gas being detected can all affect the accuracy of the instrument. Ion Science
suggests customers carry out weekly calibrations but then extend this time as confidence is gained and any
environmental effects identified.
Tiger Select should also be calibrated for the following reasons:* When a new batch of pre-filter tubes are used. Batch numbers can be found
on the end of the tube carton.
* After servicing
Demand and flow regulators
The Tiger Select can be calibrated using either a flow regulator or a demand regulator.
Demand regulators rely on the instrument pump drawing the sample from the gas bottle. These regulators
supply exactly the amount of gas necessary to calibrate so are economical. They also avoid the risk of leaving
the gas bottle switched on. However, demand regulators rely on the host instrument’s pump to draw the sample
which causes a slight partial vacuum of between -7 and -10 mbar. For an accurate calibration the entire
pneumatic system must be completely sealed.
Flow regulators supply a fixed amount of gas which should exceed what the
instrument requires. A little gas is lost and the instrument takes what it needs.
The Tiger Select requires 250 cc/min so flow regulators of 300 mL/min (0.3
L/min) is advised. Being a flood leak the sample has the benefit of being
matched to ambient air pressure.

Tube calibration routine
For best results, prior to completing instrument calibration we would recommend placing the Tiger Select and
any benzene pre-filter tubes in the calibration environment. Switch the Tiger Select on and leave it running in
the calibration environment for 30 minutes. This process ensures that the Tiger Select and tubes acclimatize
to the environment, and ensures any trace benzene is purged from the instrument after previous testing.
The Tiger Select relies on a two point calibration to create its calibration factor. Both Zero and Span are set
with one single stage. The Zero is set using the initial sample of clean air passing through a pre-filter tube,
with the Span being set later.
Important note: The accuracy of the calibration is affected by ambient temperature, therefore, this must be
entered correctly during the calibration procedure.
Procedure:
From the main running screen, select the CAL icon on Button B.
Highlight the TUBE option and press OK.
Select your chosen tube type and press OK.
Use the up and down arrows to adjust the displayed temperature to match your ambient temperature, then
select NEXT. Use a separate temperature measuring device if necessary.
•
Note: At this point the pump will stop running.
The display will prompt the user to insert a new tube. The tube will need to be prepared prior to fitting
into the unit. Remove both ends of the pre filter tube using the tube opener tool. This is done by
inserting the tube in to the tube opener and twisting the tube. A slight angle may be required to cut
the glass (please refer to image below).
•
Note: If the tube breaks up to the shoulder it must not be used as this will damage the seals within
tube holder when inserted.
Unscrew the cap of the tube holder, and insert the tube in to the tube holder cap ensuring the black
arrow on the tube is pointing towards the instrument. Screw the tube holder cap and the tube on to
the instrument. Once fitted, press Next.
•
Note: If using a flow regulator, remove the grub screw from the end of
the tube holder cap before starting the calibration to allow excess gas to
escape (please refer to image below).
Adjust the displayed concentration to reflect the calibration gas
concentration being used, then connect the calibration gas to the tube
holder probe and select OK.
•
Note: If using a flow regulator, remove the grub screw from the end of the tube holder cap before
starting the calibration routine, to allow excess gas to escape. Ensure to switch the gas on before
starting the calibration countdown, and turn the gas off once the cycle has completed.
Warning: Failure to allow excess pressure to escape could damage the Tiger Select pump.
The display will now countdown to zero whilst it completes the calibration routine. Once the countdown has
completed, the Select will display a live reading of benzene. Press OK to accept the calibration and proceed.
The display will prompt you to remove the used tube, then press OK to return to the main running screen.

PID custom calibration routine
Prior to carrying out custom calibration, the calibration parameters can be configured
TIGER Select allows you to custom calibrate using any gas from the Gas Table at a concentration from
10ppm. You will need a cylinder of the selected gas at each of the chosen concentrations. Each cylinder
should be regulated for a flow rate above 250ml/min.
Have the cylinder(s) of gas, regulator(s) and the zero carbon filter (included in the Calibration Kit (A-845213)
for your TIGER Select) ready before starting the procedure. Demand flow regulators are recommended for
the calibration of the Tiger. If flow regulators are to be used then a 0.3L/min is recommended, a flow adaptor
should be used to avoid over-pressurising the instrument (sold separately).Alternatively a known clean air
supply may be used as the ‘zero’ gas. Please ensure you are familiar with the entire calibration procedure
before attempting to calibrate your TIGER Select.
Note:
The calibration of your TIGER Select must be carried out in a clean air environment. Ensure all
parts of the Calibration Kit are available and ready for use.
Never calibrate the zero with the span gas connected.
Procedure:
1.
From the main running screen, select the CAL icon on Button B.
2.
Highlight the PID option and press OK.
3.
Select the custom calibration icon
4.
Zero: Attach the carbon filter (if using) and select ‘OK’ to commence zero sequence. The display will
countdown 30 seconds. Once complete, select ‘OK’ to proceed.
5.
Span 1: adjust the concentration to the gas concentration being applied using the Up and Down
arrow keys, if required. Present the gas to the instrument probe and select ‘OK’ to proceed. The
display will countdown 30 seconds.
6.
A tick will appear to confirm the span 1 calibration has been completed. Select ‘OK’ to proceed.
7.
Span 2: if the unit has been configured for a two span calibration, the span 2 concentration will
appear. Adjust the concentration to the gas concentration being applied using the Up and Down
arrow keys, if required. Present the gas to the instrument probe and select ‘OK’ to proceed. The
display will countdown 30 seconds.
8.

Advanced: Tube Mode
The Advanced Tube Mode has two parts: an initial single point reading, followed by an optional 15-minute
STEL calculation. Both tests use the same pre-filter tube.
The initial benzene test has a test time which varies with temperature. This test time is required to condition
the tube which thereafter offer a proportional output relating to the benzene being sampled.
H&S function (STEL calculation)
The second stage of Tube mode is optional and can be enabled by selecting the H&S option on the
configuration screen of Tiger PC (see below). The updated settings will then need to be sent to the

to the main Select running screen.
Notes and Warnings
WARNING: If the level of benzene through the pre-filter tube exceeds 200 ppm the accuracy of the
reading should be approached with caution. Readings above 200 ppm are still displayed, however, the
display will flash “>200” in the bottom left corner of the screen.
IMPORTANT:
Pre-filter tubes should be used for one single reading and one STEL test only. Ion Science recommend
that a new tube is used with each tube measurement for best accuracy and performance.
The Tiger Select should not be stored with tubes connected.
Additional Notes:
When using the Select to measure higher concentrations of benzene, the concentrations of other
hydrocarbons may also be high and the pre-filter tubes capacity should be considered. As the pre-filter
capacity reaches its limit, the tube will change colour from bright orange to a green / brown, as shown on
the ‘Filter Tubes’ page. If the colour changes beyond the ¾ marking, the benzene concentration may not
be accurate. See Figure 2. If the colour turns past the ¾ marking, as long as the benzene reading is
below the test limit (e.g. 200 ppm), the result is still within the environmental compliance and the work
activity can continue.
The working temperature range of the benzene pre-filter is between 2°C to 40°C (36°F to 104°F).

Diagnostics
Basic faults or diagnostics are presented as symbols. Should a fault occur most can be corrected by
pressing Enter or Esc to clear the fault message. All fault conditions cause the Tiger Select to alarm.
Pump failure
Pump blocked or pump failure
The flow of gas through the instrument has fallen below 50cc/minute. Check the
probe and filter for signs of blockage. Water or dirt in the probe, a bent probe, dirty
filter on the inlet or blockage of the exhaust can all cause low flow. If the blockage
can be removed, press Esc to clear the alarm. If the fault persists send the
instrument to your distributor for service.
Battery dead
Battery low or battery failure
The Tiger Select will shut down when the battery level falls below 2%. Recharge the
battery as instructed in the ‘Batteries’ section of this manual ensuring that all
connections are sound and the indicator lights on the charger are in order. If the
battery fails to charge, fit another battery pack if available. If using alkaline
batteries, replace them. If the fault persists send the instrument and charger to your
distributor for service.
Lamp out
Lamp failure
The PID lamp has failed to strike (illuminate); this may occur at switch on or during
use. Try switching the Tiger Select off and on. If this fault persists then the lamp
should be replaced. (See the ‘Maintenance’ section)
Memory full
Memory cannot receive more data
The data log memory is full. This will only happen if the Log Full box is set to ‘alarm’
on the Tiger PC configuration screen. Press the Esc key to continue, but the Tiger
Select will no longer continue to log data. Select ‘recycle’ in Tiger PC and the Tiger
Select will overwrite the oldest data and no alarm will be raised.
System error
Total system failure
The instrument’s firmware is corrupted. In the unlikely event of this message
appearing, contact Ion Science Ltd or your nearest authorised service centre.

Maintenance
Inlet Probe assembly
All component parts of the probe assembly can be replaced if they
become damaged or contaminated with use.
PTFE Filter Disc
The Filter Disc should be changed after every 100 hours of use. This frequency
should be increased for dusty or moisture laden environments or whenever the
filter appears ‘dirty’.
Filter Disc changing should be conducted in a suitably clean environment, with
clean hands and equipment to avoid contamination of the new Filter Disc.
To change the Filter Disc, unscrew the Filter Housing Cap, lift off the Filter Clamp
and O-Ring and lift the Filter Disc from the Instrument Body. Carefully place a
new Filter Disc into the Instrument Body. (Under no circumstances should a
Filter Disc be used once it has been removed.) Replace the Filter Clamp,
ensuring that the O-Ring is correctly seated. Replace the Filter Housing Cap.

Maintenance
PID Sensor/Lamp Replacement and Cleaning
In normal use the lamp should be cleaned after every 100 hours of use (based on 30 ppm for 100 hours).
Reduce this if Tiger Select is used in heavily gas contaminated environments. Please note that some esters,
amines and halogenated compounds may accelerate window fouling; in these cases cleaning may be
required after every 20 hours of use. Cleaning frequency will also depend upon alarm levels set and
prevailing environmental conditions.
CAUTION!
The Tiger Select is a sensitive detector. Internal components must be handled with clean hands and
clean tools. The Tiger Select lamp is fragile. Please handle with great care. Never touch the window
and do not drop.
To remove the Mini PID sensor for cleaning or lamp
replacement, first ensure that the Tiger Select is turned
off and that you are in a clean environment such that
the sensor parts will not be contaminated by dust, oil or
grease. Remove the Sensor Cover (see image on
right). The centre screw may be turned with a small
coin or a suitable flat bladed screwdriver.
Ensure that the Sensor Seal, on the inside of the
Sensor Cover is not disturbed.
Carefully lift the Mini PID sensor from the Instrument
Body, ensuring that the two Inlet/Outlet Seals remain in place in
the Instrument Body.
Using the Mini PID electrode stack removal tool (846216)
provided, and locate its ‘prongs’ in the slots in the side of the
Mini PID sensor body. Using the forefinger to restrain the
sensor, (the internal parts are spring-loaded and careless
disassembly may result in loss of the spring or lamp) squeeze
the tool to release the lamp housing.
The lamp may now be removed.
To replace the lamp or install a new one, firstly, place the electrode stack onto a clean, flat surface. Carefully,
twist the lamp into the electrode stack o’ring so that the lamp window now sits flush within the electrode
stack. The mini PID may then be aligned over the electrode stack and lamp, and pushed down to secure the
assembly; two clicks should be heard. When replacing the Sensor Cover ensure that the markers are
aligned correctly and that the cover is a snug fit. Sealing of the Sensor Cover against the PID is important,
the cover must be tightened to 70 cN.m +/- 10%.
The instrument MUST be re-calibrated after fitting a replacement or cleaned lamp.
CAUTION!
Never refit a damaged lamp!

Maintenance
Lamp Cleaning
The Tiger Select Mini PID relies on an ultraviolet light source ionising VOC gases as they pass across the
lamp window. This process may result in a very fine layer of contamination appearing on the detector
window that must be removed on a regular basis.
CAUTION!
The Tiger Select is a sensitive detector. Internal components must be handled with clean hands and
clean tools. The Tiger Select lamp is fragile. Handle with great care!
First ensure that the Tiger Select is turned off and that you are in a clean environment such that the sensor
parts will not be contaminated by dust, oil or grease.
Remove the lamp as detailed within the ‘PID Sensor/Lamp Replacement and Cleaning’ section of this
manual.
Inspection of the lamp may reveal a layer of contamination on the detection window that presents itself as a
‘blue hue.’ To check for confirmation, hold the lamp in front of a light source and look across the window
surface. Clean the window using the PID Lamp Cleaning Kit (A-31063) supplied.
To clean the lamp:
1. Open the vial of Aluminium Oxide polishing compound.
With a clean cotton bud collect a small amount of
compound;
2. Use this cotton bud to polish the PID lamp window. Use a
circular action applying light pressure to clean the lamp
window. Never touch the lamp window with fingers;
3. Continue polishing until an audible “squeaking” is made by
the cotton bud with compound moving over the window
surface (usually within fifteen seconds);
4. Remove the residual powder with short blast of air from the
can of air duster;
5. The instrument MUST now be re-calibrated.
Use of PID Lamp Cleaning Kit A-31063
The container of cleaning compound contains Aluminium Oxide as a very fine power
(CAS Number 1344-28-1).
A full material safety data sheet MSDS is available on request from Ion Science Ltd. The key issues are
listed below. Always replace the lid after using the cleaning compound.
•
Hazard identification:
May cause irritation of respiratory tract and eyes.
•
Handling:
Do not breathe vapour/dust. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing;
Wear suitable protective clothing;
Follow industrial hygiene practices: Wash face and hands thoroughly with soap and water after use
and before eating, drinking, smoking or applying cosmetics;
The Compound has a TVL(TWA) of 10 mg/m3.
•
Storage:
Keep container closed to prevent water adsorption and contamination.
