Continuous monitoring of trace-level toxic chemicals in air
Application Note 063
Continuous sampling of air is essential in situations where the target compounds may pose an immediate and severe hazard to human health.
Chemical warfare agents (CWAs) are key examples of such compounds, and demand 100% monitoring efficiency, both at both military installations (stockpile sites, agent incineration plants, etc.) and in key civilian areas – i.e. as a defence against potential terrorist attack.
This application note discusses Markes’ TT24-7™ instrument for continuous on-line and near-real-time sampling of airborne chemical warfare agents.
Examples include the evaluation of performance for trace-level agents such as HD (mustard) and free-VX.
