Drager X-am 2500 Gas Detector

Drager X AM 2500 gas detectorThe Drager X-am 2500 Gas Detector is equipped to detect combustible gases and vapours, including Oxygen (O2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), and Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S).

This portable gas detector can detect up to four different gases and houses durable electrochemical sensors that are highly resistant to silicone and hydrogen sulphide, ensuring reliable and continuous ATEX protection.

It is ideal for use in heavy industrial environments such as mining, construction, and refineries which are vulnerable to unpredictable and explosive hazards.

The X-am 2500 has functional design features which can ensure that gas can enter from above and from the side. So, even if the instrument is inside a pocket or if the front gas entry is accidentally covered it will still provide reliable protection. You can also attach the detector to your clothing and personal safety kit using the robust, integrated crocodile clip.
