Aug 1, 2008 12:00 PM
RAE Systems Inc. has introduced the QRAE II Pump, a compact, one- to four-sensor toxic gas detector for oxygen, combustibles, hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, or sulfur dioxide. Key features include an easy-to-change battery pack, a water-resistant case, and a new solid-polymer electrochemical (SPE), lead-free oxygen sensor. The QRAE II Pump has international certifications for use in hazardous environments including oil refineries, petrochemical plants, steel mills, wastewater treatment plants, landfill operations, coal mines, sewers, trenches, and other confined-space entry operations.
The QRAE II instrument can be powered by either rechargeable lithium-ion batteries or standard alkaline batteries. The large display on the QRAE II can be “flipped” to the orientation of the worker for either handheld or belt-mounted operation. The QRAE II also includes a new visual graph display in addition to the actual sensor readings.
This product features easy access to the filters, battery, and sensors without exposing electronic components, making field changes both safe and quick. The product has both CSA (for use in the Americas) and ATEX (for use in Europe) certifications for safe use in potentially explosive environments and is IP-65 rated for water and dust resistance. The unit supports eight languages: Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish, and the operator interface is the proven two-button system pioneered by RAE Systems to work even with dual-layer gloves. The unit includes vibration, flashing LED, and loud 95-dB audible alarms.
