Fixed VOC Gas Detection 0 – 3000 ppm
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.
The Falco pumped VOC detector gives you cutting-edge performance; reliability, accuracy and results you can trust so you can be sure your workforce and plant receive on-going maximum protection. With its humidity resistance and anti-contamination design drift is minimised and run-time extended, saving both time and cost to your business. All our Falco detectors are designed and manufactured to withstand exceptionally harsh environments, including 0-100% relative humidity and condensing humidity, and temperatures from -40 to +50 °C without any compromise in performance.
Offering the ultimate in safety, Falco pumped eliminates false readings found with other competing PID technology. Its multi-coloured LED status display can be seen from a distance of twenty meters in sunlight ensuring you are clearly alerted to hazards present.
The Falco Pumped Kit Includes
Enabled with both Modbus and 4-20mA output protocols the Falco offers site-wide networking capabilities, making it equally suitable for large refineries, smaller manufacturing plants or even wastewater processing sites. With the ability to place Falco wherever it’s needed with confidence, the device assures end users that whether you’re monitoring VOCs in one area of the plant or want to cover a whole site, Falco can deliver the results you need.
