DAX 3 F

The DAX 3F detector was designed to continuously measure the presence of various explosive gases in the air and also the presence of solvent vapours, hydrogen and hydrocarbons. Its measurement principle, catalytic combustion, gives it its major benefits: - very short response time, - accuracy and reliability of measurements. By connecting it to a Dalemans unit, you will obtain a very high performance installation. ATEX certified, this detector is especially suitable for the industrial sector, whose applications are located in an explosive atmosphere.
