Draeger's Pac 3500 and Pac 5500 single gas detectors are designed for personal protection
Draeger is expanding its family of single gas detectors with the launch of the Draeger Pac 3500 and Draeger Pac 5500. Designed for personal protection, these gas detectors measure the concentration of oxygen, carbon monoxide or hydrogen sulfide in the air. The Draeger Pac 3500 has a lifespan of approximately two years, and the Draeger Pac 5500 has an indefinite lifespan with proper maintenance and servicing. Both instruments use minimal battery power and need low maintenance which results in a low cost of ownership.
The battery, sensor and filter of the Draeger Pac 5500 can be replaced without the need for special tools. The Draeger XXS sensors offer an expected lifespan of five to eight years. That also applies to the oxygen sensor, which is non-consumptive to last longer. The triple electrode technology on which it is based promotes longer sensor life. The battery and filter of the Draeger Pac 3500 can be replaced, while the sensor doesn't have to be changed over the complete instrument life.
The Draeger Pac 3500 and the Draeger Pac 5500 allow the gas to enter the sensor from several directions. This reduces the risk of an accidentally covered inlet preventing access to the sensor for measurement. The sensors detect the gases quickly and reliably. When used to detect hydrogen sulfide, the instrument indicates measurements with one decimal point and is suited for low warning thresholds and reduced limit values. Featuring a short response time, the sensors are quick to generate visual, acoustic and vibrating alarms during a hazardous situation.
