used over other analytical methods
primarily for their simplicity of use,
quick response time, low cost, and
ease of maintenance. Since each
tube is pre-calibrated, the user does
not need any calibration equipment.

DoseRAE 2
Electronic Dosimeter for Personal Radiation Dosage Monitoring
DoseRAE 2 is a compact, direct-reading and alarming electronic
personal radiation detector. It uses a diode and a scintillation
crystal to detect X- and gamma radiation, and provides realtime monitoring of personal dose and dose rate. The real-time
radiation dose rate monitoring allows immediate reaction in
case of radiation occurrences and thus reduces the radiation
exposure. By measuring dose equivalent and dose equivalent
rate, this detector provides the functions of a dosimeter too. It
also measures radiation exposure and exposure rate, which is
appropriate for controlling the exposure of emergency responders
to photon radiation.

part # HT150002
(please call for pricing)
The unit can be preprogrammed
manually or via the CorTrack™ II
software.
A clinician can easily transfer the
recorder’s data directly to a PC platform
where the data can be read into Excel®
or similar spreadsheet program for
analysis.
The data recorder will monitor up to 99
different CorTemp® sensors and can be
either worn by a subject for continuous
monitoring or can be used to take
random, manual readings of multiple
subjects in a field or laboratory setting.
Polar® Heart Rate is an optional feature
available on the CorTemp™ data
recorder.
The silicone coated sensor contains a
micro battery, quartz crystal, communication coil and circuit board, all encapsulated in medical grade epoxy.
Once ingested, the crystal sensor
vibrates at a frequency relative to the
body’s internal temperature, produces
a magnetic flux and transmits a lowfrequency signal harmlessly through the
body.
The sensor passes through the body
at the subject’s normal rate of motility
which can vary anywhere from 24-36
hours.
Monitoring can be extended by
administering another sensor after the
initial pill has passed.
The CorTemp® sensor is accurate to ±
0.1°C and is FDA cleared and registered
as a single use device.

Quantifit OHD
Respirator Face Fit Testing
Controlled Negative Pressure technology was accepted by
OSHA in 1998, and has quickly been adopted by industry to
be the quickest and most accurate way to perform respirator fit
testing— the gold standard in respirator fit testing.
Technology
During a fit test, the respirator inlets are capped with test adapters,
and the inhalation valves are removed from the mask. With the
test worker holding his or her breath for no more than ten seconds,
the Quantifit then establishes and maintains a slight vacuum,or
controlled negativepressure, inside the mask. Since the respirator
inlets are sealed, all sources of leakage into the mask are through
the face-to-facepiece seal. The volume of air drawn out of the mask
by the Quantifit during this short period of time is equal to the leak
rate into the mask through the face-to-facepiece seal.
It’s that simple….

What is a Photoionization
Detector (PID)?
What Does a PID Detect?
A PID measures all compounds whose
ionization energy (IE) is less than the
energy of the lamp photons (see figure
at right). RAE Systems offers 9.8, 10.6, and
11.7 eV lamps.
Broadband Toxic Compound
Monitoring in the Workplace
Until recently, the only low-cost way to get a
“Go” or “No Go” reading for toxic VOCs was
through the use of broadband toxic sensor
such as MOS (metal oxide semiconductor)
or lower explosive limit (LEL) sensors.
These are not sensitive enough to provide
accurate warnings of most toxic vapors
until the permissible exposure levels are
greatly exceeded. For example, benzene’s
permissible exposure limit is 1 ppm, due
to its highly carcinogenic nature. PIDs can
easily measure down to 0.1 ppm benzene,
while MOS and LEL sensors are best used
above 100 ppm and cannot detect these
low levels.
A PID, short for photoionization detector, is a
broadband sensor that responds to a large variety
of organic and some inorganic compounds.
The general class of compounds suitable for detection is volatile
organic compounds (VOCs) or hydrocarbons (HC). Because of
their sensitivity and fast response at extremely low concentrations
of compounds (parts per billion), PIDs protect workers not only
from gases immediately dangerous to life, but also from toxic
vapors that have long-term health effects.
How Does a PID Work?
Advantages of a PID
• Very sensitive – low ppm readings
measured with confidence.
• Instantaneous display, updated every
second, for real-time monitoring of
toxic chemicals.
• Threshold monitoring –visible and
audible alarms in real time for STEL
(short-term exposure limit), TWA
(time-weighted average), and Peak.
Alarm signals vary for each condition.
• Datalog for compliance and work shift
trend analysis.
• Fast, simple calibration with isobutylene.
A large table of correction factors
is available, alleviating the need to
purchase many calibration gases.
Protection Vs. Detection
PIDs have traditionally been considered
“detection” instruments, particularly well
suited for use by first responders and entry
teams to determine the extent of a spill or
airborne emission. RAE Systems’ PIDs are
“protection” monitors, quantifying chemical
concentrations and alerting workers to
hazardous conditions. Other applications
include PID ppm and ppb monitoring
for combustible gases such as jet fuel,
gasoline, and solvents.
PAGE 41
Continuous Monitoring Alarms When Permissible Exposure
Levels are Exceeded
Other methods such as colorimetric
tubes provide only a snapshot of the
concentration and no real-time alarm,
unless the sample happens to be taken
at the exact time of the peak occurrence.
RAE Systems PID monitors provide
ongoing detection and instantaneous
alarms to indicate when exposure limits
have been exceeded for a wide range
of chemicals.
When limits are exceeded, the datalogging
feature of RAE Systems monitors allows
the individual to store, recall, and “see”
exactly when the levels were a problem,
whereas a tube cannot indicate when
a level was exceeded or whether it
happened all at one time or over the
course of a worker’s shift.
Data from RAE Systems monitors can
be instantly accessed from a personal
computer. An individual can be asked
what happened to create a situation in
which exposure limits were exceeded
while the individual can still recollect
what happened. The answer could be
as simple as cleaning with solvents or
the failure of a ventilator. Therefore,
with fast-acting PIDs, instantaneous
alarms and datalogging, RAE Systems
monitors allow safety action to be taken
immediately. Other methods, such as
activated charcoal sampling, can take
days or weeks to get results back from
a lab.
Measuring a “Witches’ Brew” of
Chemicals for a Particular Toxic
PIDs can be used to measure a highly
toxic component of a complex mixture
if its percentage in the mixture is known.
For example, if a gasoline contains 1%
benzene and the broadband PID reading
for the entire gasoline mixture is below
50 ppm, then benzene is below its
Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) of
0.5 ppm.
Helpful Information ...
Using PIDs for 10% of LEL
Decisions
Why Monitor Benzene?
Definition of TWA, STEL and
Ceiling
One of the many requirements for
entering conf ined spaces is the
measurement of confined spaces for
flammable gases. Prior to entry of a
confined space, the level of flammable
gases must be below 10% of LEL (lower
explosive limit). The most common
sensor used for measuring LEL is the
Wheatstone bridge/catalytic bead/pellistor
sensor (“Wheatstone bridge”).
Benzene is a known human carcinogen
that is present in automotive gasoline and
other fuels in concentrations typically 0.2
to 3%. Its regulated exposure limit is so
low (proposed 8-hour day TWA of 0.5
ppm) that its concentration alone usually
defines the toxicity of the fuel vapors as
a whole. Thus, it is necessary to measure
low concentrations of benzene (often
≤1ppmv) in the presence of much higher
concentrations (tens to hundreds of
ppmv total) of the hundreds of aromatic
and aliphatic compounds that make up
gasoline.
Typically, the TWA is the lowest value,
STEL is somewhat higher and the Ceiling
is the highest. Ceiling is the concentration
that should never be exceeded, even for
one instant. The STEL is a running average
concentration over the immediately
previous 15-minute period.
LEL Sensor Limitations:
•“Heavier” hydrocarbon vapors have
difficulty diffusing into the LEL sensor
and reduce its output
•Common chemicals may poison LEL
sensors
PIDs: Alternatives for 10% of LEL
Photoionization detectors (PIDs) are
sensitive hydrocarbon sensors originally
designed to measure ppm levels of
hydrocarbons for the environmental
industry. PIDs are uniquely suited
for measuring hydrocarbon mixtures.
Because PIDs use an optical technology,
they are resistant to the poisons that can
ruin Wheatstone bridge sensors.
Atmospheric Hazards in
Confined Spaces
Atmospheric hazards in a confined space
are those that expose entrants to a risk
such as death, entrapment, injury, or acute
illness from one or more of the following
causes:
• Oxygen: An atmospheric oxygen
concentration below 19.5% (oxygen
deficiency), or above 23.5% (oxygen
enrichment)
• Combustible gases
• Toxic gases
PAGE 42
Specific Benzene Measurements
RAE-Sep™ benzene tubes scrub nearly
all components out of gasoline vapors
except benzene. This is accomplished
through a proprietary absorption medium
in the tubes. Further selectivity is afforded
by using a 9.8 eV lamp, which responds
strongly to aromatics but weakly to many
hydrocarbons.

maintenance, hazardous material
response, marine spill response and
refinery downstream monitoring.
What are Some Common
VOC’s?
VOCs are the chemical compounds that
keep industry going, and include:
• Fuels
• Oils, degreasers, heat transfer fluids
• Solvents, paints
• Plastics, resins and their precursors
VOCs are found throughout industry,
from the obvious applications in the
petrochemical industr y to not-so obvious applications such as sausage
manufacturing.
The instantaneous concentrations may
exceed the STEL value as long as they
never exceed the Ceiling, and the 15minute running average never exceeds
the STEL limit. If the STEL alarm level is
reached, the worker must be removed from
STEL-level exposure for at least one hour.
Workers can be exposed to a maximum
of four STEL periods per 8-hour shift,
with at least one hour between exposure
periods.
For detailed information about calculating
STEL, TWA, Min, Max, and Average
Values for ToxiRAE PID, refer to RAE
Systems Technical Note TN-119.
Flame Ionization Detectors
(FIDs)
Flame Ionization Detectors (FIDs) respond
to a broad range of organic compounds but
are non-selective.
While their linearity is excellent, their use
is limited by their large size and weight,
including the need to carry a hydrogen
cylinder. FIDs are relatively expensive and
maintenance-intensive, and this limits their
use in most industries. PIDs and FIDs are
often referred to generically as organic
vapor analyzers, or OVAs. Many people
want to know the difference between the
two techniques, and the difference is really
one of preference. The difference between
an FID and a PID is like the difference
between a meterstick and a yardstick.
They effectively measure the same things,
but because PIDs are smaller, easier to
use, and significantly less expensive, their
usefulness in industry is potentially greater
than FIDs.

Conc. (mg/m3) = 0.041 x Conc. (ppmv) x m.w. (g/mol)
Correction Factor Alarm Limit Calculations for Simple Gas Mixtures
The PID response of a mixture is weighted to the relative
sensitivity and relative concentration of each compound:
TLVmix = 1 / (X1 / TLV1 + X2 / TLV2 + X3 / TLV3 + ... Xi / TLVi )
CFmix = 1 / (X1 / CF1) + X2 / CF2 + X3 / CF3 + ... Xi / CFi )
Alarm Setting = TLVmix / CFmix
where Xi , TLVi, and CFi are the mole fraction of total
VOCs, TLVs, and CFs of the individual components, respectively
