To keep your facility safe, you need a way to accurately monitor the atmosphere for dangerous gas levels. Because most gases are undetectable to humans, it is critical that you have the right tools to keep your personnel and property safe at all times.

Gas monitors are typically portable, allowing workers to clip them onto their uniforms when working in an area that might have gas leaks. Monitors can detect one or several different gases simultaneously.

Two new Draeger personal-use monitors are now available from KC Supply Co.: the X-am 8000 multi sensor monitor and the PAC 8500 dual sensor.

The Draeger PAC 8500 dual-gas detection device is a reliable and precise monitor even under the toughest conditions. It can be equipped with a hydrogen-compensated CO sensor or a Draeger dual sensor. This gives you the option of measuring two gases at once: hydrogen sulphide with carbon monoxide or oxygen with carbon monoxide. It provides a data and event logger for recording concentrations and events along with the date and time. Dual sensors enable detection of even low concentrations, all in one device. Measuring two gases at once reduces downtime, as well.

Other features include:

  • Large display
  • 360-degree alarm signal can be easily seen from all sides
  • Clear color-coding prevents mistakes
  • Easy fastening with tightly closing crocodile clip

The Draeger X-am 8000 multi-gas detection monitor makes clearance measurement easy and convenient. The X-am 8000 measures up to seven toxic and flammable gases, vapors and oxygen all at once, either in pump or diffusion mode. Innovative signaling design and handy assistant functions ensure complete safety throughout the process. A pump adapter makes it easy to switch between diffusion and pump mode at any time. This means the pump only operates when you actually need it, saving energy, reducing wear and tear and extending the pump’s lifespan. Handy and durable, the X-am 8000 is intuitive to operate single-handedly using three function keys. The easy-to-read color display clearly shows all the information for you.

Additional features include:

  • Switch easily between pump and diffusion mode
  • Optional Bluetooth module to connect with the CSE Connect app for Android
  • Easy-to-read color display with zoom function
  • Five slots for DraegerSensors to measure up to seven gases, two new high-performance PID sensor
