Crowcon selects MPS™ sensors for the industry’s first viable single-sensor multi-gas personal detector.
RENO, NEVADA – September 7, 2021 – NevadaNano, the world’s leading innovator in gas detection sensor technology, announced that Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd. is using the Molecular Property Spectrometer™ (MPS™) Flammable Gas Sensors in its Gasman flammable gas detection product, making it the industry’s first viable personal single-gas detector to create safer work environments.
“NevadaNano is proud to provide the sensor technology for Crowcon’s ground-breaking Gasman personal, single-gas monitor,” said Ralph Whitten, President, and Member of Board of Directors, at NevadaNano. “Unprecedented accuracy across multiple flammable gases simultaneously is essential when it comes to protecting individuals’ health and safety.”
NevadaNano offers a range of unique gas detection sensors for flammables, which deliver unprecedented reliability and accuracy. Unlike traditional sensors, the MPS sensors accurately report 0-100% LEL over 15 flammable gases with a single factory calibration and no field maintenance over their lifetime. This capability addresses the need for a flexible sensor platform suitable for complex industrial environments and offers life-saving accuracy in environments with blended combustible gases.
Integrated, real-time measurements and built-in compensation for temperature, pressure, and humidity enhance the accuracy of the MPS flammable gas sensors. Gas concentration readings are accurate across the entire environmental range, including rapid environmental transients, delivering best-in-class false-positive accuracy. The company’s MPS sensors are inherently immune to drift, decay, or poison.
“Our reliable and dependable portable gas monitors now have the industry-leading sensor technology that your applications demand. Gasman flammable portable monitors with MPS sensors help reduce fleet maintenance, increase operational up-time, and lowers total cost of ownership,” said Ed Clapham, Portables Product Manager of Crowcon Detection Instruments. “More importantly, the innovative technology provides peace of mind by protecting workers in virtually any multi-gas environment.”
The Gasman with MPS is ATEX Zone 0 approved, allowing operators to enter areas where an explosive gas atmosphere is present continuously or for long periods without fear that the Gasman will ignite their environment. In addition, the battery life with the MPS sensor is over quadruple legacy solutions, protecting workers for more extended periods. In addition, the Gasman with MPS is hydrogen (H2) ready. A single MPS sensor accurately detects hydrogen and common hydrocarbons without recalibration in a fail-safe, poison-resistant solution.
