Why Choose Tubes Over
Traditional Gas Monitors?
RAE Systems detection tubes are
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.

VRAE is unique due to its
ability to utilize up to four
toxic sensors at once. It
also offers a unique TC
sensor that can be used
in atmospheres lacking
oxygen (inert) and can
monitor both LEL and
Vol% measurements.
EntryRAE
Confined Space Entry Monitor
The EntryRAE is a 4-gas monitor, plus photoionization (PID)
detector. Reliable, easy to operate, and simple to calibrate, the
EntryRAE delivers added protection without added complexity.
The plug and play, patented self-cleaning PID is one of the
most reliable and durable PIDs available today.
Key Features
Why EntryRAE PID?
• Reliable, self-cleaning VOC detector
Typical 4-gas monitors do not detect volatile
organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are
combustible, and often toxic at levels far
below 10% LEL. These are common
industrial compounds you find in, or bring
into, a confined space. They are commonly
found in:
• Fuels, oils, degreasers
• Also includes CO, H2S, LEL and
O2 sensors
• Simple to operate
• Easy to calibrate
• Durable, weather-resistant rubber
body

• Industrial cleaners
• Datalogging included
• Heat transfer fluids
• Big display with auto-backlight

• Loud alarm
• Plastics, resins, adhesives
• Bright red flashing LED alarms

• Interchangeable Lithium-ion and

• Charging cradle doubles as an
external battery charger
• Lead compounds
• Powerful pump allows sample draws
up to 30 meters
• Phosphates
MONTH:
• Silicone compounds
• Sulfur compounds
Just a few parts per million of these
compounds can degrade an LEL sensor. A
PID detects VOCs. A PID is a reliable backup
for your LEL sensor. Combine a PID and a
4-gas monitor and you have true protection
from the unexpected.

CO2: An Indirect
Measurement of IAQ
Infrared (IR) carbon dioxide (CO2, not
to be confused with carbon monoxide,
or CO) monitors are among the most
popular monitors for assessing the
air quality of indoor environments both
in portable survey instruments and in
permanent control systems. But, CO2
monitors are only one measurement
tool for IAQ.
PIDs: A Magnifying Glass
for IAQ “Detectives”
PIDs complement CO2 monitors by
providing a direct measurement tool for
VOC contaminants. Finishes, fabrics,
carpets, building materials and microbial
contamination (mold, dust mites, etc.) all

(please call for pricing)
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 low-frequency 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.
CorTemp® Data
Recorder
The data recorder detects the signal from
the CorTemp™ sensor, then displays and
stores the data in memory.
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.

Quantifit
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 negative pressure, 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….

Formaldehyde Monitor
Formaldehyde Monitor Z-300XP
Environmental Sensors Co.’s Formaldehyde Meter is a portable
desktop instrument that measures formaldehyde concentration in
a range of 0-30 ppm and a resolution of 0.01ppm. The instrument
makes it possible to monitor formaldehyde vapor in air. The
insturment has an LCD display giving concentrations in ppm every
10 seconds, a low battery indicator, and an audible alarm that can
be set at any level from 0-30 ppm.
Datalogging
The Z-300XP meter stores all of the exposure points for up to 5 logs (a log is created in
the instrument’s internal memory each time it is used). A log contains: date, time, number
of exposure points, the interval between each point, and the actual exposure points. All of
the log files can be easily uploaded to PC using components vailable within the Microsoft
Windows Operation System or the terminal software included with the instrument.

The sensing element of the instrument is an electrochemical cell. The cell is a four-electrode
type, which contains a working and an active auxiliary electrode. The signal from the auxiliary
electrode is used for temperature compensation and to improve the selectivity of the entire
sensor. The sensor response is linear with the concentration of the target gas in air.
The Z-300XP formaldehyde monitor uses an active filter to eliminate potential interference
from common chemicals. With no filter in place, the sensor is exposed to formaldehyde and
the chemicals that may interfere. When the filter is added, the formaldehyde is removed. The
instrument then accurately determines the difference in the signal from the sensor. This is
proportional to the amount of formaldehyde, with elimination of potential interference from other
chemicals. The procedure is automatic when the command to measure is given.

What is a Photoionization Detector (PID)?
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.
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.
B r o a d b a n d Tox i c C o m p o u n d
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.
Advantages of a PID
• Very sensitive – low ppm readings
measured with confidence.
• Instantaneous display, updated every
second, for real-time monitoring of
toxic chemicals.
Ionization Energies (IE) for some common chemicals
• 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.
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.
How Does a PID Work?
• 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.

Using PIDs for 10% of LEL
Decisions
Why Monitor Benzene?
Definition of TWA, STEL and
Ceiling
One of the many requirements for
entering confined 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
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.
Applications include tank entr y
pre-screening during refinery and plant
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
• Toxic gases
VOCs are found throughout industry,
from the obvious applications in the
petrochemical industry to not-soobvious 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.
