Dräger releases new multigas detector

construction 2578410 640Dräger, a specialist in the fields of medical and safety technology, has released a new multigas detector, X-act 7000

Concentrations of hazardous substances in ambient air at the workplace should not exceed specified limits. Monitoring these sometimes very low values is a very demanding task.

The focus of the Dräger X- act 7000, in combination with the Dräger MicroTubes for different gases and vapours, is to measure carcinogenic and toxic substances in the lower ppb range. The range of gases to be measured is being constantly expanded. The measurement-sensitive system of the X-act 7000 is based on colorimetric chemical sensor technology and measures even the lowest ppb concentrations.

It can replace conventional laboratory analysis and deliver accurate, reliable results directly on site. False-positive measurement results and false alarms can be significantly reduced.

Ex-protected and ready for use

The RFID tags applied to the Dräger MicroTubes contain all the calibration data that is valid for a typical one-year period of use. Complex functional tests and manual calibration procedures are no longer required. All possible influences on temperature and humidity are already taken into account during the calibration of the factory. The analyser is explosion-proof and certified in accordance with ATEX/IECEx for zone 0 and CSA Class I, Zone 0. In addition, the system is IP54 protected against dust and splash water. It also meets the requirements of electromagnetic compatibility, according to EN 61326-1.

Easy to use

After an automatic self-test, the X-act 7000 analysis system is ready for use immediately. The user controls the measurement task via a 3-button operation unit and a 2.4-inch colour display. Measurement result, location and time can be stored in the internal data logger and read with the Dräger CC Vision software. Power is supplied by five easily removable batteries. The battery capacity is sufficient for more than 10 hours of measurement and is shown on the display.

The Dräger X-act 7000 can be used with the Dräger X-am pump by connecting to it with a small connecting adapter. This makes it possible to measure carcinogenic and toxic substances in the ppb range possible even in inaccessible locations such as canals, ducts or tank facilities up to a distance of 147 feet. Since the X-am pump also has an explosion protection certification for zone 0, it is ideally suited for these applications.
