Photovac MicroFID IS Flame-Ionization Detector

Photovac MicroFID IS Flame-Ionization Detector

Pine Item #52090

Flame Ionization Detector (FID) now available to hire from Pine. A small and lightweight FID with built-in datalogging, the Photovac MicroFID allows trouble-free measurement of soil gases when the response-factor consistency of a FID is mandatory, or when methane must be included in the total reading.

The MicroFID is also an appropriate instrument for leak testing, remediation efficiency checks and emergency spill response.  UHP hydrogen fuel is available for purchase.


Detect up to 50000 PPM VOCs including methane
