Alcohol and Formaldehyde Detection Company to Expand Their Product Range

Jul 04 2017 Read 1106 Times

Dart Sensors, founded in 1994, is a British chemical sensor developer and manufacturer, drawing on 40 years experience in the field. We are world leaders in breath alcohol and formaldehyde detection, and are currently expanding our product range, introducing variations on existing sensors while introducing innovative products as set out below.

Alcohol sensors: A new high temperature formulation showing exceptional resistance to prolonged exposures – prototypes have withstood 500 hours cycling between 40 and 85C – is undergoing final trials.

Food Freshness. This sensor is sensitive to vapours given off during food spoilage from a wide variety of classes of foodstuffs, and can be installed (for example) in an intelligent refrigerator.

Oxygen sensor. The world's first lead-free, industry compatible, two pin fuel cell oxygen sensor, is currently undergoing final revisions before launch. No need to make the change to receive three-pin oxygen sensors! Contact me now to be among the first to receive pre-production samples.

Dart Sensors is further pleased to announce a close collaboration with Shenzhen Prosense Technologies, under which certain new DS products will be assembled in China using original Dart Sensors components. Prosense is marketing the sensors within the China market subject to DS auditing procedures, and our Chinese subsidiary Dart Sensors Shenzhen Ltd is now exporting from China to the external world markets. This arrangement gives us access to very high volume, low cost manufacture, and as Dart Sensors currently exports 100% of sensor product from the UK, an insurance policy against a hard Brexit. Enquiries from potential distributors worldwide for these products are welcome. Products already listed are:

Formaldehyde pre-calibrated module, 0.03 – 2 ppm. Formaldehyde is notoriously difficult to handle and presents sensor customers with problems in obtaining a reliable calibration. This product outputs a pre-calibrated formaldehyde ppm output directly, removing the need for customer calibration. Accuracy has been assured by cross-checking across three different assay methods.

Low cost carbon monoxide sensor. a high quality leakproof sensor for high volume applications. The base price is currently $6 and volume discounts are negotiable.

Carbon monoxide precalibrated module. Possibly a unique product: as in the HCHO module this product outputs a precalibrated ppm CO value.

Hydrogen sensor: available now, industry standard three pin sensors for various concentration ranges.

Dissolved gas sensor for transformer insulating oil. We are very pleased to be able to introduce this niche product sensing hydrogen and other decomposition product gases, which is well established throughout the Chinese energy transmission industry, to the rest of the world.

Our sensor development is entirely customer driven. Let us solve your chemical sensing problem. Contact walter@dart-sensors.com. www.dart-sensors.com
