Engineers responsible for refrigeration or process cooling systems will find the new Chillard 5000 Ammonia Leak Monitor from MSA (Cranberry, PA) offers them highly reliable toxic gas detection to protect people and equipment in the food/beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, electric power generation and other industries. Specifically:
- The Chillgard 5000 Ammonia Leak Monitor utilizes Photoacoustic Infrared (PAIR) sensor technology, which provides a rapid response at the 10 parts-per-million level for early notification.
- They are highly accurate too: 0–50 ppm ±1 ppm, 51–1000 ppm ±10% of reading. PAIR sensors are not affected by temperature and humidity swings, which minimizes drift unlike other detection technologies.
- Designed for easy installation, the Chillgard 5000 Ammonia Leak Monitor can be configured with 4, 8 or 16 sampling points all at once from its single dedicated calibration port. This capability eliminates the typical arduous effort and cost required by other gas sensor technologies to calibrate the multiple sensors that must be placed on ceilings in larger production areas or buildings for adequate coverage due to the lighter than air nature of ammonia gas.
- Technicians will appreciate the Chillgard 5000 Ammonia Leak Monitor’s large, highly intuitive local user interface touch-screen color display (7-inches, 178 mm) with real-time text and graphics.
