Point Hydrocarbons - IR Point Infrared Gas Detector for Hydrocarbon Gas Detection
High Reliability and Durability
The Point Hydrocarbon – IR has a straight-forward design and rugged 316 stainless steel construction to withstand the most demanding applications.
Dual Wavelength NDIR Technology
The sensing and reference elements are self-compensating for optical integrity and other signal inhibitors.
Operates in Anaerobic Atmospheres and Constant Hydrocarbon Background
The self-contained optics fully function in applications where there is no oxygen or hydrocarbons are regularly present. The Point Hydrocarbon – IR optics are also immune to poisoning and etching.
No Routine Calibration and Virtually Maintenance Free
There is no scheduled calibration programs required for the operation of this instrument and maintenance is limited to an annual zeroing.
3-Wire 4-20 mA Linear Output
These point detectors can be installed in new construction or retrofit situations using using 3-wires. The detectors communicate faults and special functions using signals below 4 mA.
Point Hydrocarbon — Infrared
Using a solid state collimated Infrared light source and self compensating heated optics, the Point Hydrocarbon NDIR LEL detector is ideally suited for use in very harsh and hazardous environments demanding low-maintenance gas detectors. The 316ss explosion proof housing has no mirrors or beam splitters and the optics are sealed from dirt and water ingress. With a 100 mm plus optical path, response time is <5 seconds.
The Point Hydrocarbon Infrared gas detector performs reliably in the presence of silicone and other catalytic poisoning agents and operates in Oxygen-free environments or background LEL levels. There are no known poisons that affect the sensor technology. The advanced processor-based electronics are sealed and have no user access or adjustments. The recommended maintenance interval is one year.
