Portable Advanced Explosives Detector - TMP-E3500


Introducing the TMP-E3500 Handheld Advanced Chemilumina Explosives Detector some of the most advanced chemical detection systems in the world, including its exclusive GC-IMS, NDS and EVD lines of trace detection.

ThTMP-E3500 is the world’s first and most recognized portable explosives trace detector that uses Luminol Chemiluminescence (Chemilumina). The TMP-E3500 is the only portable device capable of detecting the presence of all threat explosives, including ICAO taggants, military plastics and TATP. It also does not use any external carrier gas or radioactive source (unlike others).
If portability, quick detection and clear, accurate results are crucial, then this is the explosives detector needed. The TMP-E3500 offers extremely fast and stable detection with very high selectivity for explosives and immunity to humidity or contamination problems. The TMP-E3500 detects traces of particulates and vapors, allowing for noninvasive searches of luggage, mail, vehicles, documents and containers.

Operating the TMP-E3500
The TMP-E3500 is flexible and easy to operate, offering both vapor and particulate sampling without the use of an external carrier gas or radioactive source. Vapors are sampled directly via the sampling nozzle. Particulates are sampled by swiping a suspected object with a cotton glove or other means and transferring any traces to the unit. This dual capability enables users to select the most suitable method of sampling for the explosives of interest. The TMP-E3500 starts processing samples immediately and gives results in just seconds. All results are indicated on the LCD graphical and numerical display.

Fast and Proven:

The TMP-E3500 has proven to be capable of detecting plastic and high vapor pressure explosives rapidly—giving clear results you can trust. Luminol Chemiluminescence is an ASTMEPA standard method for atmospheric monitoring of nitrogen dioxide.

Sensitive and Selective:

The TMP-E3500 can detect minute traces (low nanogram level) of C-4, TNT, Dynamite, PETN, Semtex, EGDN, DMNB, RDX, ANFO, Amonium Nitrate, Urea Nitrate, Nitroglycerine and TATP, with low false alarm levels and few interferents. Immune to variations in humidity and environmental conditions.

The TMP-E3500 is selfcontained, lightweight, less than 3 kg (6.6 lbs), and comes in a fully equipped, rugged carrying case—ready to use when and where needed.

No Radioactive Isotopes or Radioactivity

Easy to Use:

The TMP-E3500 is ready for operation within thirty seconds from turn on. When necessary, any minimal cleaning takes only a few seconds. The simple push of a button automatically activates the sampling and analysis mode. Results are displayed on an easy-to-read LCD making the TMP-E3500 ideal for all non-technical personnel. ICAO taggants and tagged plastic explosives.
