Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd have extended their product range to include the T4x multi-gas detector. Exclusively with long-life O2 and Molecular Property Spectrometry (MPS™) sensor technologies, along with a dual toxic sensor, the capability of the T4x portable gas detector to improve worker safety and cost less over time has been enhanced.
Gas sensors are primarily optimised for detecting specific gases or vapours through design or calibration. Personal safety monitors often combine several sensors for protecting the user against specific gas risks. However, a ‘Compliance 4-Gas monitor’ comprises sensors for measuring levels of carbon monoxide (CO) hydrogen sulphide (H2S), oxygen (O2) and flammable gases; normally methane (CH4) in one device. The T4x monitor with the ground-breaking MPS™ sensor is able to provide protection from CO, H2S, O2 risks with accurate measurement of multiple flammable gases and vapours utilising a basic methane calibration.
Our new and improved T4x portable multi gas monitor you can take almost anywhere. Offering compliance and low cost of ownership in a simple to use solution. To ensure ongoing reliability and accuracy of the T4x detector, the detector utilises the MPS™ sensor functionality within its robust unit that provides a range of features to ensure safety. It offers protection against the four common gas hazards: carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide, flammable gases and oxygen depletion, the T4x multi gas detector now comes with improved detection of pentane, hexane and other long chain hydrocarbons. It comprises a large single button and easy-to-follow menu system to enable ease of use for those wearing gloves, who’ve undergone minimal training. Tough, yet portable, the T4x detector features an integrated rubber boot and an optional clip-on filter that can be easily removed and replaced when needed. These features allow the sensors to remain protected even within the dirtiest environments, to ensure they can constant.
A unique benefit to the T4x detector is that it ensures toxic gas exposure is calculated accurately throughout an entire shift, even if it is switched off momentarily during a break or when travelling to another site. The TWA feature allows for uninterrupted and disrupted monitoring, so when powering up, the detector begins again from zero as if starting a new shift and ignores all previous measurements. The T4x allows the user the option to include previous measurements from within the correct time frame. The detector is not just reliable in terms of accurate detection and measurement of four gases, it is also dependable due to its battery life. Enhanced battery life of 35+ hours battery life (double the battery life of our original T4) allows multiple or longer shifts to be worked between recharging.
T4x helps operations teams focus on more value adding tasks by reducing the number of sensor replacements by 75% and increasing sensor reliability. Through ensuring compliance across site T4x helps health and safety managers by eliminating the need to ensure each device is calibrated for the relevant flammable gas as it accurately detects over 15 at once. Being poison resistant and with battery life doubled, operators are more likely to never be without a device. T4x reduces the 5-year total cost of ownership by over 25% and saves 12g of lead per detector which makes it much easier to recycle at the end of its life.
Overall, through the combination of three sensors (including two new sensor technologies MPS™ and Long-life O2) within an already popular portable multi-gas detector, Crowcon has enhanced the safety, cost-effectiveness and efficiency of individual units and entire fleets. The new T4x offers longer life with a higher accuracy for gas hazard detection whilst providing a more sustainable build than ever before.
