Falco TAC Diffused
Fixed gas detector
The Falco TAC diffused is a fixed gas detector that eliminates false readings found with other competing technology and continuously detection Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in hazardous areas. The Falco TAC diffused, fixed gas detector is ideal for detecting VOCs in areas such as refineries and petrol chemical facilities.
Falco TAC diffused, fixed gas detector has an externally located Intrinsically Safe sensor for quick and easy servicing without the need for a hot work permit. Dual certification allows Falco to be serviced and calibrated in a hazardous environment without having to remove power!
The standard Falco, both Pumped and Diffused models are supplied with a 10.6 eV lamp allowing the instrument to detect a wide range of VOC gases. The fixed gas detector has 4 detection 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 detect Total Aromatic Compounds (TACs) which help focus on benzene. The Falco TAC is available with a detection range of 0 – 50 ppm.
