Tiger XT

Handheld VOC Detector – Rapid accurate detection of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

The Tiger XT’s photoionisation detection (PID) technology has been independently verified as best performing on the market for speed, accuracy, resistance to humidity and contamination, thanks to its patented Fence Electrode Technology. Its patented Fence Electrode Technology and anti-contamination design ensures optimal performance within humid and heavily contaminated atmospheres, extending run time in the field.


Probe Optional Extras : 

Tiger Probe Option A 912336

300mm probe attachment 

Tiger Probe Options A 912337

1m probe attachment 

Container Push Through Probe Tiger

Container Push Through Probe, PTFE lined, 380mm stainless steel probe with gas intake from the side



The Tiger XT is the most advanced handheld VOC detector on the market with the widest measurement range, accurately detecting gases down to 1 part per billion (ppb) up to 20,000 part per million (ppm). Tiger XT has the fastest response time on the market of just two seconds, and is as quick to clear down. The Tiger XT handheld VOC gas detector can detect over 750 VOCs and toxic compounds!

* Depends on model and gas.
** Maximum reading is obtained with some analytes such as ethanol.
*** Specifications are based on calibration of isobutylene at 20 ° C and 1000 mBar. All specifications shown are at the calibration point and under the same environmental conditions.
**** Based on continuous operation.
# For indicative measurements only. Quoted accuracy achievable up to 2,000 ppm. For more accurate detection, calibration around the concentration of interest is recommended.
