MSA Ultima® IR Combustible Gas Monitor Expands Capabilities

The MSA Ultima® IR Combustible Gas Monitor is now able to detect tetrahydrofuran (THF) and methyltertiarybutylether (MBTE). Designed with highly reliable, advanced IR technology and easy-to-use features, the monitor is rugged, compact and easy to calibrate. It is ideal for use in the paints and coatings (THF monitoring) and petrochemical (MBTE monitoring) industries, among others.

The Ultima IR Gas Monitor's unique IR sensing element simply plugs into the Ultima, as do the other sensors in the Ultima family. It offers complete calibration (without manual intervention) and a self-contained record of the latest calibration date and time. The optional auto-calibration module permits permanent gas connection and calibration at designated time intervals.

All Ultima Gas Monitors are available for use with the Ultima® Plus Digital Network System. This allows for easy connection of Ultima Monitors over a single communication line, reducing installation and maintenance costs. In addition, the monitors provide a local display of gas concentrations (minimum, maximum and average), output signals and alarm indications.

A "Replace Sensor" indicator alerts the user to replace the plug-in sensor. Relay outputs with two alarm levels become available when the internal relay option is selected. The Ultima Calibrator and Controller send digitally encoded signals for non-intrusive calibration and access to advanced monitor features, eliminating the need to open the enclosure during installation, set-up or calibration.
