P2.9.19 Handheld Sensor Array for Detection of Trace Gases

J. Frank, H. Fischer & G. Matz
Chemical incidents can occur in many situations - for example during transport of toxic industrial chemicals. In case of a spontaneous release of chemical agents it is important to identify and to quantify the exposed gas. The developed handheld device DACHS provides a quick on-site analysis of chemical hazardous substances. The system combines different sensor technologies to an array to cover a large number of toxic industrial substances. The most sensitive detector is an ion...
