Mercury Detection for Environmental Agencies

Robust analysis for inspection, investigation, remediation

If you are responsible for monitoring a wide range of environments for mercury contamination, it’s not enough that your instrument is accurate. It must also be responsive, reliable, and rugged. Jerome has the answer.

The Jerome J505 is the most advanced handheld mercury analyzer available. The J505 is the only handheld mercury analyzer on the market that uses Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy (AFS)—the same principle used by the most sophisticated laboratory benchtop analyzers. This core operating principle has allowed us to make the Jerome J505 the ideal instrument for everyday field use. The J505 is lighter, more selective, and more robust than analyzers based on Atomic Absorption.

The sensitivity inherent in the detection method enables the J505 to detect minute quantities of mercury using a very low gas flow rate, and a responsive continuous sampling mode make it easy to pinpoint the source of contamination. Also unique among mercury analyzers: the Jerome J505 is designed and built in the USA and is backed up by excellent after-sales service.

  • Advanced:

    The Jerome J505 uses the same detection principle as the most sophisticated benchtop mercury analyzers.

  • Quick:

    Go from a cold start to an accurate reading in six minutes—two to three times faster than atomic absorption methods.

  • Durable:

    All Jerome analyzers are designed and manufactured in the USA and are built to last.

  • Reliable:

    Rugged construction and long battery life mean Jerome will be ready when you need it.

  • Lightweight:

    Heavyweight detection in a lightweight package: Jerome weighs 7 pounds or less.
