Upgrades for range of portable gas detectors enhance safety, extend applications
Sep 18 2020
Crowcon Detection Instruments is delighted to announce that they have launched new functionalities for its Gas-Pro portable detectors.
Crowcon have added a new gas sensor for hydrogen cyanide (HCN) (0–30 ppm with resolution of 0.1 ppm). This will be particularly useful for those working with electroplating, nitrile production and ship fumigation and in chemical plants and gold mining.
Crowcon’s TWA Resume function has been added, which retains TWA logs even when the device is switched off (e.g. during breaks or meals) and thus ensures workers are never over-exposed to harmful gas.
There are now In-field pellistor changes for methane, hydrogen, propane, ethane, acetylene (0–100% LEL, with resolution of 1% LEL). By allowing in-field pellistor changes, Gas-Pro detectors give users the flexibility to conveniently test for a range of flammable gases, without needing multiple sensors or detectors. What is more, they can continue to calibrate using existing methane canisters, saving time and money.
Ed Clapham, Product Manager for Crowcon, is pleased with the new features and notes their value to end users. ‘We’ve always been proud of the Gas-Pro range because it offers a genuine one-stop solution for a wide range of oxygen, flammable and toxic gas hazards,’ he explains. ‘But the new features make it even better. The TWA Resume function, for example, which was originally only found in our T4 model, makes a great contribution to workplace safety that simply isn’t found in many other detectors. And while hydrogen cyanide is not a well-known gas, it is exceptionally toxic, so the new sensor will be vital in many settings.’
