ACCURATE AND EFFICIENT DETECTION OF BENZENE, TOLUENE, ETHYLBENZENE, AND XYLENES WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY.
PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRY SOLUTIONS
Many modern products contain components that originate from hydrocarbons in crude oil, making the extraction and processing of crude oil an important industry in today’s society. This industry also requires new and better technologies to effectively address the challenges of working with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Some VOCs are dangerous to human health and harmful to the environment, and some are regulated by law. Better detection and monitoring technologies can help protect petrochemical facilities, employees, and the environment.
The NovaTest P300 can rapidly test ambient air in any location, making it a useful device for leak detection, prospecting, or other VOC detection applications. The P300 is capable of detecting a wide range of compounds with high sensitivity in a single test, and the system automatically generates an instant report with calculated results. These features can be used to efficiently identify leaks and other problems so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible. The P300 can also be used to detect near-surface hydrocarbons that seep to the Earth’s surface after being generated at greater depths. Near-surface hydrocarbon surveys, combined with other techniques, can help focus the target area for further exploration, reducing prospecting time, costs, and risks. Detecting VOCs escaping from Earth’s surface also enables the P300 to identify soil contamination from leaking underground storage tanks. This detection capability can be used to monitor gas stations, industrial sites, and defense bases.
The NovaTest A1000 provides continuous online monitoring solutions, making it a useful device for occupational health and safety monitoring and fenceline monitoring. The A1000 can sample and analyze ambient air autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. This can be used to ensure OSHA regulations are being met and to protect the safety of employees. Because of its ability to operate remotely, the A1000 can also be used for fenceline monitoring to ensure EPA emissions regulations are met and to protect the safety of surrounding communities. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to respond quickly to minimize damages when leaks or other problems are detected.
- Faster analysis is needed to provide the immediate feedback necessary for effective responses and compliance with emissions regulations
- Comprehensive analysis requires multiple tests with multiple techniques, making testing complex
- Petrochemical facilities require rugged equipment that can function reliably in changing conditions
- Automatic sampling and rapid analysis of a wide range of VOCs with instantly calculated results provides immediate feedback that is easy to understand, and continuous online solutions can be applied in the production process to save time
- Multiple VOCs can be detected and analyzed in a single test that requires no professional GC background to perform
- Devices are designed to be used in the field and are very robust, with low maintenance and low consumable requirements

Monitoring the air on-site with immediate results makes it possible to detect the presence of small concentrations of VOCs before they become a larger problem. Fenceline monitoring can ensure compliance with emissions regulations, helping to protect surrounding communities.
OCCUPATION HEALTH AND SAFETY
VOCs can be released when handling common workplace materials such as solvents, paints, sealants, and adhesives. Anthropogenic VOCs are regulated by law, especially indoors, where concentrations are the highest. Air quality monitoring with accurate, real-time detection is important for ensuring safe working conditions.
Because VOCs can be dangerous to human health and harmful to the environment, they are subject to regulations. However, when thresholds are exceeded, identifying the source of the leak can be difficult. There is a need for accessible technology that can provide rapid and comprehensive analysis and produce understandable and useful results.
