The GDS-IR Infrared Gas Sensor uses proven, reliable infrared sensing technology to detect dangerous levels of carbon dioxide or explosive levels of methane, propane and other hydrocarbons. Designed for especially harsh environments, the GDS-IR is virtually maintenance-free and immune to poisoning or etching by any known gas.
The GDS-IR can be calibrated to read a wide range of combustible hydrocarbons, including methane, propane, hexane, pentane, ethanol, Jet-A, isobutene, propylene and isopropyl alcohol, as well as carbon dioxide to 5% by volume.
The GDS-IR sensor is CSA certified for use in Class 1 Division 1 explosive environments, is CSA performance tested and includes a five year operational warranty. The GDS-IR is also suitable for use in SIL-2 safety systems.
The GDS-IR is manufactured in the USA Applications include refineries, onshore and offshore drilling platforms, fuel loading docks, biogas processing, breweries, wastewater treatment facilities and natural gas storage and distribution.
