DAX 3 F-C

The DAX 3F-C detector was designed to continuously measure the presence of various explosive gases such as methane, propane and butane in the air. Its measurement principle, catalytic combustion, gives it its major benefits: - very short response time, - accuracy and reliability of measurements. By connecting it to a Model E or F Dalemans unit, you will have an installation that provides the best value for money. ATEX certified, this detector is perfectly suited to boiler room applications.
