Example Problem: Ion mobility spectrometers and other highly sensitivity detection systems can be used to locate the source for solvent and noxious or toxic vapors. Finding a significant source of solvent fumes in a residential area might, for example, indicate an illegal drug lab.
Solution: For many solvents, a KIN-TEK LFH Trace Source™ Refillable Permeation Tube can be used at ambient temperature as a test source to validate instrument operation. For more quantitative work, FlexStream™, 491Flex™ or portable Span Chek™ generators are used to generate the desired concentration(s).
Example Problem: Trace detection of explosive chemicals for airport security requires sensitive equipment that must be checked frequently with dopant standards. Validating instrument operation in the field is crucial. To do this, officers and security personnel need a ready source of test mixture.
Solution: KIN-TEK Trace Source™ dopant permeation tubes are used to validate instrument operation. KIN-TEK dopant permeation tubes are compatible with GE Trace Detection Systems, TSA airport security systems, etc. Dopants include Phosgene, DMMP, Phosphine, Arsine, Chlorine, HCN, etc.
