Crowcon, a leading manufacturer of specialist gas detection equipment, has announced the launch of a new portable multigas detector.
The T4 detector integrates a range of features, providing advanced protection for employees working in harsh environments and minimising the cost of ownership through faster servicing.
The unit enables companies to ensure compliance to safety standards by protecting employees against unsafe levels of the most commonly monitored gas combination carbon monoxide (CO), oxygen (O2), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), and a range of flammable gases.
It is designed for use in industries such as the oil and gas sector, water and waste treatment facilities, utility companies and steel processing plants.
Among the key features of the T4 are easy one-button operation, clip-on filter plates, and a novel Time-weighted average (TWA) resume facility.
TWA resume is an innovative new feature ensuring TWA logged doses of toxic gases are not reset when the unit is shutdown, for example during a break, reducing the risk of worker overexposure to toxic gases.
It also includes a feature called +ve Safety, which is Crowcon’s simple ‘traffic light’ status indicator that allows the user to check the compliance status of the unit at a glance, without having to read and interpret the data shown on the display screen.
The clip-on filter plates make it faster and easier for users to replace the gas filter, which is an essential safety precaution in dirtier environments.
The T4’s ease of use also includes one-button operation which reduces the amount of training required and is very easy to operate while wearing gloves. The T4 unit also provides an extended battery life of over 20 hours from a single charge.
