RAE Systems ppbRAE 3000 PID (10.6 eV) Rental $120.00 $375.00 $1,115.00

The RAE Systems ppbRAE 3000 photoionization detector (PID) is a hand held volatile organic compound (VOC) detector that measures VOC levels as low as 1 ppb and up to 10,000 ppm. The monitor can log up to 6 months of data at one-minute intervals. The ppbRAE 3000 has a built-in humidity and temperature sensor to compensate for humidity levels, improving the accuracy of readings. The instrument comes pre-calibrated to 10 ppm isobutylene by our environmental specialists, and includes a calibration record.

Items Included:
  • ppbRAE 3000 PID
  • USB Data Cable
  • Instruction Manual
  • Hard Case
  • Charcoal Zero Adapter
