Refurbished IonScience Mercury Vapor Indicator (MVI) Detector

IonScience Mercury Vapor Detector

Mercury Vapor Indicator for Continuous Detection

The MVI rapidly detects and continuously measures mercury vapor. Revolutionary dual beam technology means the instrument does not saturate or require regeneration between readings as do traditional gold film detection methods, ensuring instrument downtime is eliminated.

  • Dual beam UV absorption technology
  • No saturation, no regeneration–eliminates instrument downtime
  • Fast, 3 second response
  • Range: 0.1 to 200 and 1.0 to 1999 microgram/cubic meter
  • Highly accurate measurement
  • Continuous readings
  • High performance pump for fast indication and recovery
  • PTFE probe with moisture trap filter
  • Large digital display
  • Simple, one-handed operation
  • Audible alarm can be set to any level or switched off
