The GX-8000 Single gas Combustible ( LEL ) monitor sets a new industry standard for rugged, reliable, portable gas detection.
This robust, lightweight, sample drawing single gas monitor is designed to provide continuous and simultaneous monitoring of Combustible gases . It measures combustible gases such as Methane ( CH4) or Iso0butane ( i-C4H10) with a range of 0-100 % LEL.
The GX-8000-LEL is available with Alarms or No Alarms as well as having the option of Alkaline or Lithium Ion batteries.
It has a rugged IP-67 waterproof design making it well suited to harsh as well as tough environments. The GX-8000 is suitable for many industries including pharmaceutical, utilities, waste water treatment, telecommunications as well as marine shipping.
The compact, lightweight design makes it comfortable to carry using the shoulder/neck strap. It has an optional waist strap allows for hands free use. The instrument is easy to operate single-handed in addition a powerful 750ml / minute built-in pump will draw a sample from 30m within a few seconds. The GX-8000-LEL has ATEX Exia II CT4 approval for use in Hazardous areas as well as having a datalogging function.
Riken’s Gx-8000 usability as well as its reliability are the culmination of 75 years of experience as a leading gas detector manufacturer. The GX-800o is certified to international standards (ATEX / IECEx / MED (wheel mark), etc).
