Draeger Cuts The Cost Of Continuous Gas Detection In Utilities, Water And Waste And Local Government Applications
Designed for use by the utilities, water and waste and local government departments, the new Draeger Polytron 3000 is an intrinsically safe gas detector for the continuous monitoring of toxic gases and oxygen in ambient air. Featuring innovative "docking station" and transmitter technology, it offers a very low cost of ownership, is simple to maintain and eliminates the need for traditional service.
Equally at home in a boiler house or a municipal water treatment plant, the Polytron 3000 can be used to monitor the presence of a specific gas such as ammonia (NH3), carbon monoxide (CO), chlorine (CI2), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), nitrogen monoxide (NO), oxygen (O2), or sulphur dioxide (SO2).
Comprising two components known as a "docking station" and a transmitter, it enables the fast removal and replacement of "like-for-like" sensors that are equipped with a data memory storing calibration information. The docking station can be pre-installed on walls and pipes without special mounting plates and, at commissioning, can be easily connected to the transmitter by a quick-lock mechanism. Designed to accept a pre-calibrated sensor, it also features digital temperature compensation and an LCD display.
Weighing just 800g, the Polytron 3000 measures 175 x 145 x 135 mm (H x W x D) and can be operated in temperatures from -40 to +65° C with relative humidity of 0 to 100% and pressures from 700 to 1300mbar. Approvals include UL, CSA, ATEX and the CE mark.
The Polytron 3000 is the latest addition to the Draeger range of gas detectors. It is suitable for use under the new CoSHH Regulations which require any organisation with more than 5 employees to monitor for asphyxiant gases such as nitrogen, helium and argon. As these gases are colourless and odourless, it is difficult to prevent or adequately control exposure without measuring the oxygen content of air. (Oxygen is not, in itself, flammable but it can aid combustion and increase the risk of explosion. Oxygen deficiency affects brain function, whereas oxygen enrichment causes an increase in the metabolic rate - both of which can be dangerous in the working environment.)
