What is Gold Film Technology?

The heart of Jerome is the well-proven gold film technology.  A thin gold film, in the presence of mercury vapor or hydrogen sulfide gas, undergoes an increase in electrical resistance proportional to the mass of mercury vapor or hydrogen sulfide in the sample. 

When the sample button is pushed, an internal pump pulls ambient air through a scrubber filter and into the flow system.  The sample air is drawn over the gold film sensor. 

The instrument determines the amount of the toxic gas adsorbed and displays the measurement in micrograms per cubic meter (µg/m3) or milligrams per cubic meter (mg/m3) for mercury, and parts per million (ppm) or parts per billion (ppm) for hydrogen sulfide.
