ATEX multigas monitor added to Ashtead Technology fleet

ATEX multigas monitor added to Ashtead Technology fleet
16/05/2018

In response to customer demand and increased awareness of the threats posed by both indoor and outdoor pollution, Ashtead Technology has added the ‘AreaRAE Steel’ to its fleet of air quality monitors.

“With the ability to either rent or sell instruments, we are often the first point of call when customers have a new or expanded monitoring requirement,” says Ashtead’s Josh Thomas. “Increasingly, we are being asked for devices with multiparameter capability, so that their use is not restricted to one specific job. As a portable battery-powered monitor with EX certification, the AreaRAE Steel is ideal for indoor, confined space and outdoor applications where users need to be able to start monitoring quickly and simply,” he adds.

The AreaRAE Steel provides measurements for a range of potential threats with a PID sensor for VOCs, an LEL sensor for combustible gases, an oxygen sensor, and two toxic gas sensors for Nitrogen Dioxide (0-20ppm) and Nitric Oxide.

Housed in a rugged, stainless-steel enclosure and capable of running for up to 18 hours on a single charge, the AreaRAE Steel has a built-in logger that can store up to 20,000 readings, which helps staff avoid excessive exposure to potentially hazardous locations. In addition, the instrument is able to issue audible, visual and remote alarms for %LEL (lower explosion limit), TWA (time weighted average) and STEL (short-term exposure limit).

The rental units are fitted with sensors for VOCs, LEL, O2, NO and NO2, but customers wishing to purchase a new AreaRAE Steel are able to select from a wider range of sensors, including Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen Sulphide, Sulphur Dioxide, Chlorine, Hydrogen Cyanide, Ammonia, Phosphine, Hydrogen Chloride and Hydrogen Fluoride. It is also possible to purchase a model with a built-in modem to enable remote connectivity for up to 2 miles.

Emphasising the need to maintain gas monitors in optimal condition, Josh says: “Customers can take advantage of our dedicated service facility for the RAE products, which is fully equipped with all the necessary service and calibration tools, including specialist gases and Honeywell approved parts.”
