Gas Detector Receives MSHA Approval

Infrared and PID sensors provide safety
7-Gas detector

The Microtector II G460 measures up to 7 gases simultaneously in ambient air for increased workplace safety. The sensor slots can be equipped individually. Different detection principles are available for optimal measuring results.

CO2 – reliable infrared measurement

For increasing the user’s safety, the Microtector II G460 detects carbon dioxide by means of a selective infrared sensor (NDIR). This sensor provides long-term stable detection values. Unlike electrochemical sensors, IR technology is not subject to cross sensitivity from toxic hydrogen sulphide.

The Microtector II G460 is the smallest detector world-wide which can be equipped with both an infrared sensor and a PID.

Monitoring for toxic volatile organic compounds (VOC)
Photoionisation detector (PID) equipped instruments are increasingly viewed as the best choice for measurement of VOCs at exposure limit concentrations. Familiar substances containing VOCs include solvents, paint thinner and nail polish remover, as well as the vapours associated with fuels such as gasoline, diesel, heating oil, kerosene and jet fuel. The category also includes many specific toxic substances such as benzene, butadiene, hexane, toluene, xylene, and many others. Most VOC vapours are flammable at surprisingly low concentrations. For most VOCs, however, the toxic exposure limit is exceeded long before readings reach a concentration high enough to trigger a combustible range alarm.

Various options allow individual adaptation to personal requirements. A number of accessories make the Microtector II G460 a complete, useful instrument in everyday work with combustible and toxic gases.
