FP-31

The FP-31 is a handheld gas monitor for the detection of formaldehyde using photoelectric photometry with colorimetric detection (dinitrophyenylhydrazine method). The sample drawing rate is controlled by a microprocessor, and the unit has a direct readout of measurement value on an LCD display. The FP-30 can detect the new World Health Organization level of 0.08 ppm average for 30 minutes. Up to 100 readings can be stored in internal memory.
