Flamgard Plus

A flameproof (Ex d) pellistor based detector with display & 4-20mA output, for hydrocarbons, hydrogen & petrol vapours.

Overview

Flamgard Plus is a Flameproof (Exd) flammable gas detector which uses poison-resistant pellistors to detect explosive levels of hydrocarbons, hydrogen and other flammable gases and vapours, including aviation fuel and leaded petrol vapours.

Non-intrusive calibration

  • Calibration can be performed locally without the need for hot work permits – minimises operational down-time
  • Local display and buttons enable calibration without opening the junction box

Flexible output options

  • 4-20mA current sink or source – works with a wide selection of control panels
  • 3 wire format
  • Optional relays for alarm and fault – can be used for switching local alarms

Rugged and reliable

  • Constructed using marine-grade aluminium with a stainless steel sensor housing – proven track record for operation in the harshest environments
  • Ingress protection to IP65 as standard

Low cost of ownership

  • Non-intrusive one man calibration – easy to operate and maintain
  • Long life sensors – keeps interuption to on-site activity to a minimum
  • Simple parts replacement

Wide range of sensors

  • Choice of catalytic beads for a wide selection of flammable gases and vapours – gas detector tailored to your requirements
