Crowcon's Detective + Transports Gas Monitoring Where Needed
Assure safety and efficiency during shutdown and maintenance operations
Erlanger, KY (May 29, 2008) - For reliable detection of short-term gas hazards, Crowcon's Detective + offers wide-area coverage and long battery life, allowing shutdown maintenance work in plants and refineries to be completed safely and quickly.
A free-standing, transportable gas detector, the Detective + can be used individually or in groups to monitor up to four gases at once. Over a dozen gas sensor options are available, with infrared sensors for flammable gas that are immune to the poisoning effects which plague standard flammable gas sensors.
The Detective + can be used as stand-alone unit, monitoring small areas or protect lone workers, or up to twelve units can be linked together to create a perimeter protection system. If a dangerous gas level is detected, the device warns with a wailing 104 dBA siren and flashing, high intensity LED beacons visible from all angles. A 48-character text display large enough to be seen at a distance shows gas levels for all four channels simultaneously.
The Detective + is ideal for closed areas like holding tanks, assuring safe gas levels before workers enter and monitoring continuously during welding and other repair work. With 60 hours of battery operation, work can go on with a minimum of detector recharging, keeping shutdown time as short as possible. In commissioning new liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants, the Detective + can be placed along the pipelines to check for leaks, minimizing explosion risks.
The rugged tripod construction and raised detectors keep the Detective + sensors away from obstructions and surface water. An integral safety cage gives extra protection in the event of the unit being overturned in chaotic work areas. An operating temperature range of -20°C to +40°C assures reliable detection in a variety of environments. The units are Class 1 Division 1 Groups A, B, C, and D approved. Optional folding legs facilitate compact storage and transportation.
