Designed for work safety —

Mercury vapor is a potent neurotoxin that occurs naturally in our environment. Occupational mercury hazards are highly variable and depend on the location and type of work being conducted. Industrial processes can concentrate mercury, posing a heightened risk to workers.

The MA-1 protects workers by identifying mercury levels in the breathing zone and guides decisions without getting in the way. Continuous and live readings allow immediate response to hazards, while the data logging can track workers’ exposure across their entire shift.

The design of the MA-1 is robust and radically more portable than all other mercury monitors. Operating the MA-1 is simple. Once it’s turned-on and clipped-on the MA-1 operates automatically without any input needed.

Proprietary Plasmonic Sensors —

Picoyune’s proprietary plasmonic sensor technology is sensitive and selective. Have confidence in the MA-1, which is not cross-sensitive to hydrocarbons (BTEX, VOC, etc.) which cause significant false readings in the incumbent UV spectroscopic methods. The MA-1 covers the entire range of hazardous mercury levels; it is sensitive to parts per billion concentrations and quantitative above the IDLH limit (10,000 µg/m3).

Applications —

Oil and Gas

Industrial Hygiene
