A market survey was conducted to determine the availability of portable, direct-reading flame ionization detectors for the measurement of organic vapors. Two prototypes, the Wilks Miran 101 infrared analyzer for toluene and the h.nu photo-ionization meter were included in this study along with four flame ionization instruments. Manufacturers of selected meters were requested to submit a meter for evaluation of its physical and performance characteristics. Optimum use techniques for each meter evaluated are included.
