The Polytron 8900 UGLD by Draeger is an early warning system that quickly detects gas leaks in compressed gas lines and containers. The ultrasonic sensor allows the system to react more quickly than conventional gas detection technology, as it detects the sound of the leaking gases rather than the gas concentration of a gas cloud.
Conventional industrial gas warning systems only detect gas leaks when the gas is in the immediate vicinity of the gas detection transmitter. This means environmental influences, such as wind, also play a role. They can delay or even prevent gas detection sensors from detecting a gas cloud.
The Polytron 8900 sensor is designed for “intrinsic safety” protection. It is an
ultrasonic microphone and is resistant to water and dirt.
