Dual-sensor detector with long-life NH3 sensor

SWEDEN: Samon has launched Glaciär X5, an ATEX-certified dual sensor industrial gas detector with long-life ammonia sensor.

The Glaciär X5 stands out with its cutting-edge single- and dual-sensor technology. Its ammonia (NH3) sensor is designed to last five years – double the 2-3-year lifetime of standard electrochemical sensors – even amidst constant background NH3 levels.  

Specifically targeted for industrial refrigeration applications, the unit is ATEX-certified and IECEx-certified for use in zone 1 and zone 2 hazardous areas. 

The dual-sensor options include electrochemical sensors for ammonia, infrared and catalytic sensors for propane (R290), infrared refrigerant sensors, semiconductor refrigerant sensors, and infrared sensors for CO2. 

Sensors can be locally mounted on the detector or can be deployed as remote gas sensors. Any combination of available sensors is possible. This enables a single gas monitor to be used, for example, to detect NH3 at both high levels and low levels, or for two different refrigerants used in a cascade refrigeration system.
