Crowcon’s Triple Plus+ Portable Gas Detector More Versatile Than Ever
Crowcon has added more features to its Triple Plus+ portable gas detector, making it even more versatile than ever. Favoured by the construction and oil and gas industries because of its toughness, and with around 100,000 units in use worldwide, the Triple Plus+ is arguably the world’s most popular full function multi-gas gas detector.
The device, which can monitor up to four toxic and flammable gases at once from a list of over 15, is almost unbreakable and uses the larger 7-series sensors which have been shown to be the most reliable sensor type available. The unit’s carbon dioxide accuracy has been significantly improved and it now also has a 0-1.00ppm arsine sensor, allowing it to be used to detect the dopant gas in semiconductor manufacturing. The detector has also been made compatible with Crowcon’s CheckBox calibration station, making calibration and bump testing* easy.
In addition, the Triple Plus+ IR (infrared) version is now compatible with ISO 61779 LEL (lower explosion limit) concentrations. IR detection differs from traditional methods because it does not require the presence of oxygen, making the Triple Plus+ IR ideal for purge monitoring of hydrocarbon storage tanks such as in petroleum processing facilities or oil and gas carriers.
Designed for use in a wide range of demanding industrial environments, the Triple Plus+ is housed in a shatterproof polyamide/ABS casing, making it shock-resistant and water-proof to IP65. It will also float if dropped in water.
A large backlit display shows all gas levels simultaneously and a loud audible alarm and extremely bright visual alarm warns the operator when gas levels reach dangerous levels. 100 hours of datalogging capacity is available as standard and a PC interface through an RS232 serial port allows all data to be downloaded for permanent storage.
* A bump test applies a gas mixture to a detector to check whether the sensors are working within acceptable response limits.
