Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are any organic compounds having an initial boiling point less than or equal to 250°C, measured at a standard atmospheric pressure of 101.3kPa.
Examples of common VOCs are gasoline fumes, paint solvents, air fresheners, construction chemicals such as carpet adhesives, dry cleaning and cigarette smoke. Long-term exposure to VOCs can cause damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system.
We recommend volatile organic compound monitoring for indoor air quality, electronics manufacturing, woodworking, carbon filter verification, printing, ozone systems, dry cleaners, hazmat operations, compressed breathing and gluing. Our range of fixed, portable and OEM monitors can help you keep VOC levels safe.
