Carbon Dioxide Gas Detectors
Infrared Gas Detection
Status Scientific Controls offer the following types of Carbon Dioxide gas detectors which use the latest Infrared gas sensing technology:-
- Flameproof Fixed Detectors - Hazardous Area Certified.
- Intrinsically Safe Fixed Detectors - Hazardous Area Certified.
- Safe Area Fixed Detectors - Non Certified.
- Portable Detectors - Hazardous Area Certified.
All of the above detectors can be supplied to detect Carbon Dioxide concentrations over a specific range - these ranges can be from 500ppm up to 100% volume CO2.
Flameproof Fixed Detectors - Hazardous Area Certified
Type FGD10 Infrared Carbon Dioxide Gas Detectors
The series comprises detectors with or without a window and digital display.
Intrinsically Safe Fixed Detectors - Hazardous Area Certified
Type FGD3 Infrared Carbon Dioxide Gas Detectors
The FGD3 series gas detectors are powered from an intrinsically safe dc power supply and provide an industry standard 4 to 20mA output signal.
Safe Area Detectors - Non Certified
Type FGD4 Infrared Carbon Dioxide Gas Detectors
These gas detectors are not certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and therefore must only be used in applications where it is known that potentially explosive gases do not exist nor be created through industrial processes or other activities within the area concerned.
The FGD4 series gas detectors are powered from an 8 to 24 volts dc power supply using the industry standard 4 to 20mA two-wire current loop to transmit the gas level to a separate control panel such as the Status Scientific Controls LC Series. The Carbon Dioxide version requires a third connection to power the infrared sensor.
Portable Detectors - Hazardous Area Certified.
Type PGD3-IR Gas Detectors
The PGD3-IR is an intrinsically safe portable multi-gas instrument for use in Group IIC potentially explosive atmospheres. The instrument is intended to be used for the protection of personnel entering or working in an environment where a gas hazard may, or is known to exist. The instrument produces both an audible and visual alarms if any of the monitored gas levels fall outside pre-set limits. It can be fitted with up to 4 gas sensors in various combinations of flammable (via infrared), toxic (including carbon dioxide via infrared) and oxygen to provide simultaneous monitoring of each gas. The data logging facilities available within the instrument allow the exposure levels for each gas to be stored for downloading to a personal computer at the end of the work period. The instrument also automatically calculates the STEL and LTEL values for each gas as required by the COSHH regulations in the United Kingdom. Pumped versions are available at additional cost.
A special version of the PGD3-IR uses both an infrared Carbon Dioxide sensor and infrared Methane sensor for Biogas Monitoring and Analysis Applications.
