5 reasons for using a PID for Arson Investigation
There are several good reasons to use a PID for arson investigation:-
  • PIDs are portable and battery powered making them ideal for field applications
  • PIDs are a quick, simple to use and accurate method for the detection of accelerants at a fire scene
  • PIDs are very sensitive to commonly found accelerants and will detect hundreds of gasses and vapours
  • PIDs are non-destructive and will not affect the air sample which can be captured for further lab analysis
  • PIDs reduce the quantity and cost of lab samples required to reach a conclusion as to the cause of the fire
