Status Scientific Gas Detectors

Flameproof Fixed Gas Detectors

FGD10 Infrared And Non-Infrared Series Fixed Gas Detectors for Flammable or Toxic Gases and Oxygen. 

Flameproof Fixed Gas Detectors are used in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres where, due to the nature of the environment or the industrial process taking place, there is the risk of an incendive spark from electrical apparatus causing an explosion to occur and the organisation responsible for the safety of the area requires that electrical equipment be enclosed within a flameproof enclosure (also known as an FLP, Ex d or explosion-proof enclosure). 
 
Examples are the oil, gas and chemicals industries. 
Status Scientific Flameproof Fixed Gas Detectors

The series comprises fixed detectors with or without a window and digital display. They can be supplied either in cast aluminium (standard type) or grade 316 stainless steel (suffix ‘-SS’ ). 

The detectors are fitted with a single sensor that be either an Infrared Sensor, for the detection of Hydrocarbon gases or Carbon Dioxide, a ‘Pellistor’ Catalytic Sensor for detection of both Hydrocarbon gases and Hydrogen or an Electrochemical Sensor for the detection of specific toxic gases and oxygen. 

Versions are available for detection of the following common gas types:-
