INFICON Unveils Scentograph Chemical Monitoring Systems for Water at WEFTEC 2003

Fast, On-site Monitoring and Screening for Toxic Industrial Chemicals and Chemical Warfare Agents for Water Security

Syracuse, NY - October 1, 2003: INFICON, a global leader in instrumentation for on-site chemical detection and products for critical analysis, measurement and control of advanced manufacturing processes, will highlight the newest in its line of chemical monitoring systems at WEFTEC 2003, October 12- 15, Los Angeles, with the Scentograph family of on-site water monitors. Designed for automated, unattended monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), Scentograph delivers fast and accurate analysis in the field, eliminating the need to send samples to a lab and wait for results.

INFICON Scentograph analyzes toxic industrial chemicals and chemical warfare agents via an innovative, direct and automatic purge-and-trap sampling system, unlike conventional systems that require manual operation. Available for continuous, on-line monitoring for VOCs in process streams at a single, secure location or as a lightweight, portable monitoring system for spot or multiple on-line analyses, Scentograph performs accurate measurement of concentration ranges from low part-per-trillion to high part-per-million with sampling and reporting of results to your specifications.

"Water security has never been more urgent. It's clear that the practice of collecting samples and sending them to an off-site lab for analysis is too time-consuming to avoid a possible disaster," said Dr. Amos Linenberg, Director of Marketing and Technology for Gas Chromatograph Products for the INFICON Environmental Health and Safety business. "INFICON has answered this challenge with on-site chemical monitoring systems cited by a U.S. EPA Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Report as producing accurate and precise data that are directly comparable with results obtained from an off-site laboratory. Our Scentograph Systems provide fast support for risk assessment, remediation, and monitoring - all crucial for those charged with a timely response to potentially hazardous situations."
