Press Release Summary:
Ultima X Gas Monitors, with duct-mount kit, enable gas sampling even when flow rate is at high velocity. Using catalytic, electrochemical, and infrared technologies, they provide continuous monitoring of combustible and toxic gases and oxygen deficiency. Units include interchangeable smart sensors, onboard LEDs, and display that alternates between sensor reading and gas type. Sensors can be calibrated via calibration port without disassembling or removing from duct.
Original Press Release:
MSA Ultima® X Series of Gas Monitors Now Available in Duct-Mount Versions
The Ultima X Gas Monitor series, from the MSA Instrument Division, is now available for duct-mounted monitoring applications. The new duct-mount kit enables gas sampling even when the flow rate within the duct is at a high velocity. The kit is also sealed to prevent the gas within the duct from escaping. Users can calibrate the sensor via a calibration port without disassembling or removing the sensor from the duct.
Applications for the duct-mounted versions include HVAC monitoring of CO and CO2 for efficient building ventilation, area and process monitoring in the chemical and adhesives/coating industries, and CO2 monitoring in blanketing applications.
Ultima X Gas Monitors, including the Ultima XA Monitor, the Ultima XE Monitor and the Ultima XIR Monitor, are state-of-the-art detectors featuring the latest mechanical and electrical technologies. Designed for exceptional performance in virtually any gas detection application, the monitors provide continuous monitoring of combustible and toxic gases and oxygen deficiency, using catalytic, electrochemical and infrared technologies.
Advanced features of the Ultima X Gas Monitor series include:
o Disconnect-under-power allows sensors in an explosion-proof unit to be changed without the need for hazardous area declassification.
o Interchangeable smart sensors are extremely easy to install and replace. New sensors are recognized, triggering automatic alarm and relay setting reconfiguration.
o State-of-the-art display conveniently alternates between sensor reading and gas type and features scrolling diagnostic messaging.
o World-class design features one electronics board for maximum reliability and serviceability. Multiple-entry mounting enclosure enables problem-free installation and servicing.
o Onboard LEDs and relays provide increased indication of alarm and fault conditions. "Quick-check" LEDs are easily viewable from afar, and field-programmable alarm levels and normally energized/de-energized and latching/non-latching relay functions offer three levels of alarm and a fault.
Ultima X Gas Monitors are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications in virtually any type of industry, including refineries, chemical and petrochemical facilities, steel mills, water and wastewater plants, offshore, mining and general industry.
