CalGard Remote Calibration Adapter
The CalGard Remote Calibration Adapter is a stainless-steel accessory for the ULTIMA X5000 and General Monitors S5000 (X/S5000) digital sensors that provides reliable operation of remotely installed gas detection sensors working under harsh environmental conditions. It permits users to complete function tests (“bump tests”) and calibrations without the need for directly accessing the sensor and greatly simplifies gas detector maintenance. It prevents dilution of the test gas going to the sensor even in high wind conditions.
The Ultima Controller is purpose-designed and built to provide complete access to all advanced features of the Ultima and Ultima X Gas Monitors, as well as the Toxgard II Gas Monitor. Via its full-function and password-protected keypad, users can set the real time clock, set alarm levels, change span-gas values, display date of last calibration, display minimum, maximum and average gas values, change address and set future calibration time/date in addition to providing basic calibration functions.
Catalytic Bead Sensors
The General Monitors catalytic bead gas sensors are well known for their sensitivity, reliability and longevity and make them the first choice for most users of the catalytic oxidation gas detection principle. Every component is manufactured in-house to ensure optimum performance. Careful matching of the active and reference elements ("beads") result in a sensor that has negligible zero drift with respect to changes in humidity, pressure, and temperature.
H2S Gas Sensors and Accessories
General Monitorsʼ hydrogen sulfide (H2S) sensors are solid state devices, designed and manufactured for long life and fast response. They are selective to H2S and remain unaffected by high concentrations of other substances like hydrogen, sulfur dioxide, and gasoline vapors, which are often present in facilities that process sour gas and crude oil. A high tolerance to a broad range of temperatures and humidity enable these sensors to operate in rugged environments, as does their capacity to withstand exposure to high H2S concentrations over short periods.
RGC - Remote Gas Calibrator for Catalytic Bead Sensors
The Remote Gas Calibrator (RGC) allows calibration gas to be applied to a remotely located catalytic bead sensor from an easily accessible location. The RGC is used for blocking ambient air and redirecting methane to the catalytic sensor for calibration or testing sensor accuracy. The RGC tests or calibrates the General Monitors catalytic sensor with 50% LEL methane. The unit is capable of calibrating gas at wind velocities up to 50 mph. The RGC is used manually with a pressure regulator (P/N 80146-1) and is suitable for calibrating with any light hydrocarbon.
RGC-IR - Remote Gas Calibrator for Point IR Detectors
The remote gas calibrator, RGC-IR, is designed to be permanently installed on a combustible IR gas detector. The RGC-IR provides protection from outside elements and allows the user to apply calibration gas (@ 50 psi) to the detector from a remote source.
RGC-HT - Remote Gas Calibrator for High Temperatures
To verify the proper operation of a catalytic combustible gas sensor, it is necessary to periodically apply a gas of known concentration to the sensor. This is usually done manually at the site with gas supplied from a small lecture bottle. As the sensor reacts to the calibration gas, adjustments are made to the monitoring system to bring its calibration into agreement with the known concentration of the calibration gas. At times, sensors are mounted in inaccessible locations, requiring expensive catwalks or scaffolding to reach them. The High Temp Remote Gas Calibrator (RGC-HT) allows the calibration gas to be applied to the catalytic bead sensor from easily accessible locations. The RGC-HT is used for blocking ambient air and redirecting methane or other light hydrocarbon gases to the catalytic bead sensor for calibration or testing sensor accuracy in various environments. The RGC-HT tests or calibrates the General Monitors Catalytic Bead sensor with 50% LEL methane or other light hydrocarbon gas. The unit is capable of calibrating and detecting gases in various wind conditions (up to 45 mph) and temperatures (up to 200°C when used with high temperature sensor).
1701 Portable Test and Calibration Unit
The 1701 is a portable test and calibration unit used to verify the operation and calibrate certain ultrasonic gas leak detectors. Although the detectors do not require regular maintenance, the 1701 can be used to satisfy the requirements for regular plant maintenance. Further, the 1701 requires no electrical connection to the gas leak detector but is simply placed over the sensor head of the gas leak detector.
