Falco Pumped Gas Monitor
Fixed VOC Gas Monitor
The Falco Pumped is a fixed VOC gas monitor that eliminates false readings found with other competing technology and continuously monitors Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in hazardous areas. The Falco pumped, fixed VOC gas monitor uses a sample line to draw samples and is ideal for use in difficult locations such as underground or in confined spaces.
Fixed VOC Gas Monitor – Features
Falco, the fixed VOC gas monitor, has an externally located Intrinsically Safe sensor for quick and easy servicing without the need for a hot work permit. Dual certification allows the fixed VOC gas monitor to be serviced and calibrated in a hazardous environment without having to remove power!
The standard Falco fixed VOC gas monitor, both Pumped and Diffused models are supplied with a 10.6 eV lamp allowing the instrument to monitor a wide range of VOC gases. The Falco fixed VOC gas monitor has 4 monitoring ranges available, these ranges include 0 – 10 ppm, 0 – 50 ppm, 0 – 1000 ppm and 0 – 3000 ppm.
The Falco TAC, both Pumped TAC and Diffused TAC models utilise a 10.0 eV lamp to monitor Total Aromatic Compounds (TACs) which help focus on benzene. The Falco TAC is available with a monitoring range of 0 – 50 ppm.
