The Riken Keiki 1000 series are Portable single Hydrogen and Combustible gas detectors. There are 3 standard models in addition to a Hydrogen specific version . The GP-1000 has a range of 0-100% LEL . The NC-1000 has a range of 0-10000 ppm. The NP-1000 has a range of 0-100% Volume .
The 1000 series have several attractive features. Users can directly read up to 25 target gases ( 5 for NP-1000). There is a large intuitive display as well as a strong backlight. Datalogging in addition to a pump boost mode for long sampling lines, are also included.
1000 series comes calibrated to either Methane , ISO-Butane. Users select any one of 25 target gases can be selected by a simple button operation. Optional filters can be used with the standard gas sampling probe to remove Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) or Silicone. These gases normally damage this type of catalytic sensor.
The Instruments have ingress proof rating of IP67 and are Intrinsically safe in addition to having ATEX approval. A safety rating of ExiaⅡCT4 allows users to detect a gas at hazardous area Zone 0 . Areas where an explosion risk always exists.
Customers find the 1000 series is ideal for checking gas leaks or monitoring gas in oil refineries, petrochemical plants. In addition the Hydrogen specific version is ideal for use in power stations as well as fuel cell leak checking.
The NP-1000-H2 is a version calibrated specifically for Hydrogen in the range of 0-10% Volume or 0-100% Volume. The NP-1000 is ideal for use in Fuel cell environments, Power station Generator purging in addition to many other Hydrogen Economy applications.
The 1000 series are small, light and compact in addition to being very easy for users to operate. They operate with 4 x Alkaline batteries allowing continuous operation of up to 20 hours. The 1000 series has a strong on board pump with pump boost which allows use with long sampling lines up to 30meters.
Users benefit from standard accessories which include a 0.75m hose as well as a probe. Users can specify optional accessories which include data logging software , carry case in addition to H2S filters and sampling hoses. In addition see links to the complimentary instruments below.
Target gas is selected by a simple button operation from a list of 25 gases, already loaded into the GP-1000 / NC-1000

There is a NP-1000 for H2 detection only. If would like to detect H2 gas,
order the H2 version. H2 version cannot convert reading to other gases.
Note 1) Alarm accuracy, response time etc. are confirmed with calibration gas.
Note 1.) Performance （Accuracy/Response time etc） is determined by the calibration gas ( Methane or Iso-butane as standard ). After selecting a target gas from the menu (other than the calibration gas), the indicated value of the gas can only be considered as a reference value ( it is same as calculating the value using the sensitivity data).
Note 2.) If a more accurate reading is required, then an actual gas calibration is required. Contact Weatherall if the GP-1000 is required to be calibrated with a gas other than CH4, i-C4H10, H2.
Note 3.) The gas selection function is only available when the GP-1000 is calibrated to either CH4 or i-C4H10.
Note 4.) Some gases included in the gas list have strong absorption characteristic. Therefore, Fluorine sample tubing is supplied as a standard accessory. Special attention is needed when the spiral tube is used.
