Description

The new Model 211-G Ozone Monitor uses the proven ultraviolet (UV) absorption method in combination with our patented heated graphite scrubber technology (U.S. Patent No. 10,295,517) to measure ozone virtually free of interferences. The instrument is ideally suited for measurements of ozone in heavily polluted air where interferences are likely from particulates, mercury, and/or VOCs. The Model 211 combines the stability of our proven dual beam ozone monitors with our selective scrubber technology to provide accurate ozone measurements in the most polluted air. The enhanced optical path length of 30 cm provides a precision of better than 0.5 ppb for 10-second measurements, and the instrument can output new ozone measurements as often as every 2 seconds. The Model 211-G comes with SD flash card memory as a standard feature. The Model 211-G Ozone Monitor has been designated by the EPA as a Federal Equivalent Method (FEM) as a modification to our Model 211 Scrubberless Ozone Monitor: see the modification (p. 29) to EQOA-0514-215

For the most accurate ozone measurements with virtually zero interferences, we recommend our Model 211 Scrubberless Ozone Monitor. However, the Model 211-G offers the ability to measure ozone in heavily polluted urban air with negligible interferences without the use of the nitrous oxide source required by the Model 211. Use of either the Model 211 or Model 211-G in place of conventional ozone monitors has the potential to bring many regions into compliance with the new national ambient air quality standard simply by making a more accurate measurement.

Theory

Ozone monitors based on UV absorbance measure ozone by comparing the transmission of light through a detection cell. Light intensity measurements are made with ozone present (I) and with ozone removed (Io), and the ozone concentration is calculated using the Beer-Lambert Law. Conventional ozone monitors remove ozone for the Io measurement by passing the sample air flow through a solid-phase scrubber (e.g., hopcalite or a series of metal oxide screens). Ideally, the solid-phase scrubber would destroy ozone but pass mercury and other UV-absorbing compounds. In that case, the values of I and Io would be reduced by the same amount, and the interfering compounds would not affect the ozone measurement. In practice, however, mercury and aromatic compounds such as benzene, toluene, xylenes, phenols, etc. either adsorb or react at the solid-phase scrubber surface. As a result, conventional ozone monitors may report erroneously high ozone values by up to a few ppb on highly polluted days and possibly cause a region to be out of compliance with the EPA's ozone standard. The 2B Tech Model 211-G Ozone Monitor greatly reduces interferences from UV-absorbing compounds and mercury by use of a patented heated graphite scrubber composed of graphite tubes heated to a temperature of ~130 deg C. At the hot graphite surface, ozone reacts to form gas-phase CO and CO2, the surface being constantly refreshed with underlying carbon. The high temperature prevents significant quantities of VOCs and mercury, which absorbs ~1,000 times greater than ozone, from adsorbing and being removed from the air stream.

Like our Model 205 Ozone Monitor, the Model 211-G is dual beam, with a measurement of the transmission of UV light through ozone-scrubbed air being made simultaneously with a measurement of UV light passing through unscrubbed sample air, thus increasing the precision and baseline stability of the instrument.

The Mode 211-G allows remote instrument operation via RS-232, choice of averaging time (2 s to 1 hr), analog voltage output (0-2.5 V), optional analog current output (4-20 mA), and an internal data logger. Our data display and graphing software allows continuous display of data which can be saved for offline analysis.
