Hydrocarbons are a common organic compound—made through organic matter decomposition—found throughout the petrochemical industry.

While a valuable natural combustion and energy source, these hydrocarbons are also quite hazardous to the human body. Hydrogen, ethane, heptane, and more hydrocarbons are known to cause respiratory, liver, and kidney complications. Thankfully, having a quality FID analyzer at your chemical plant can greatly reduce the risks associated with hydrocarbon exposure.

Our phx42 FID monitor is the latest flame ionization detector designed to perform Method 21, SOR/2020-231, EN 15446 inspections, HAZMAT, Emergency Response and many other types of total hydrocarbon(VOC) detection.

Entirely controlled by a wireless hand-held. phx42 also includes powerful datalogging software that can be used to create electronic records of inspections. Also Connects to Chateau Mobile as well LeakDAS and Guideware Mobile LDAR Software.


Major improvements have been made to the control of Hydrogen. Manual adjustment will no longer be needed.


phx42 is still an FID, but the upper range has been raised drastically over phx21 and the TVA1000b/TVA2020.


Certified per the following applicable standards: FM/UL (United States), CSA (Canada), ATEX (European Union), IECEx (USA, Canada, China, Saudi Arabia, and more). This allows the use of phz42 to comply with Method 21, SOR/2020-231, and EN 15446.


12 years of working with phx21 and hundreds of customers have paved the way to phx42.
