Crowcon has launched new hydrogen (H2) and Ammonia (NH3) sensors for its portable Gas-Pro gas detector.
The new sensor detects hydrogen at between zero and 1000 parts per million (ppm) and has an over-range of 2000 ppm. Since the Gas-Pro can be used with a pump and sampling tube, the new sensors are ideal for detecting leaks in hard-to-reach and confined spaces.
There is also growing interest in hydrogen’s potential as a ‘green’ fuel in homes and workplaces, and to power engines in many types of vehicle. Hydrogen is already widespread, but its growing importance makes exposure even more likely, so the new sensor will give Gas-Pro users even greater peace of mind.
The new ammonia sensor detects gas at levels between zero and 1000 ppm. The risks of ammonia (which include caustic effects on mucous membranes, and explosion) are substantially higher in enclosed spaces and despite the pungent smell of ammonia gas, it can go unnoticed until it’s too late.
Experts at Crowcon are particularly pleased to be adding hydrogen detection to the Gas-Pro. As Ed Clapham, Portables & Digital Product Manager explains: ‘We have engineered the Gas-Pro to be practical and exceptionally safe in very unsafe conditions, such as enclosed spaces.
When used with a sample tube and pump, the Gas-Pro can reach hard-to-access spaces and help to detect leaks early.’
