Crowcon has expanded the capabilities of its Tetra:3 (T3) personal multi-gas detector with an additional toxic gas sensor for ammonia.

The existing sensor range includes flammable gases, oxygen, hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide, ozone, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide. The new sensor widens the applications for the T3 to include water and wastewater treatment facilities as well as other industries. With a top-mount display and the capacity to detect up to four gases at once, the T3 is suitable for use in the most demanding industrial environments, including confined space work. Its intuitive, single button operation is essential for users with gloved hands. If a hazard is detected, the T3 gives rapid and effective warning with a powerful 95 dBA audible alarm, an extremely bright red/blue LED visual warning and by vibrating. Despite its compact size and low weight (less than 300 g), the T3 is very rugged. Its shatterproof housing and rubber over-molding provide extra shock and vibration protection with water and dust resistance to IP67. A lithium-ion battery provides over 18 hours continuous operation from a single charge, and there is a 30 day countdown warning of the calibration due date. The T3 is provided with a stainless steel alligator pocket clip as standard and has an optional harness for chest mounting. 800-5-CROWCON, www.crowcon.us
