Defiant Technologies FROG 5000 Portable GC PID Micro Gas Chromatagraph

The FROG-5000™ can detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in air, water, and soil, delivering lab-quality results in less than 10 minutes. It is the only portable gas chromatograph that weighs less than 5lbs (2.2kgs).

The FROG-5000™ portable GC will detect chemicals as volatile as vinyl chloride in addition to semi-volatile organic compounds such as naphthalene. It can detect VOCs at sub-part-per-billion levels or at high part-per-million levels depending on its configuration.

FROG operators use it to determine trace amounts of suspected chemical contaminants without waiting for results from an offsite lab. Within ten minutes you’ll have an answer in the field and you’ll know how your cleanup is progressing. The FROG can help you correct the job and fix it on the spot!
