GAS CLIP TECHNOLOGIES
4-Gas Detector runs for 2 years and NEVER Needs Charging
Finally eliminate the risk of being unprotected against toxic gases due to your portable gas detector running out of battery in the middle of a shift. Gas Clip Technologies introduces a new, maintenance-free 4-gas detector that has a 2-year continuous runtime with no charging—the Multi Gas Clip Simple. Reliably test for hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), oxygen (O2), and combustible gases (LEL) with this simple-to-use and simple-to-maintain detector. No charging ever! No calibrating needed! Just turn it on and have worry-free assurance of protection against toxic gases 24/7 for 2 full years … with no maintenance costs.
What makes this ultra-durable detector able to perform so well for so long even under the harshest of conditions? Gas detection has come a long way since the first portable gas detector with a catalytic diffusion sensor was introduced in the 1920’s. New technology has led to the development of sophisticated, yet easy to use, gas detectors that can run for their entire lifespan without ever needing to be charged or calibrated.
The Multi Gas Clip Simple uses a low-energy infrared beam of light inside the LEL sensor to detect gas. This type of detection process has an extremely low drain on the battery, allowing the battery to last for months and months at a time. Non-infrared (pellistor/catalytic bead) LEL sensors, which were used in the past for combustible gas detection, contained two beads and a filament which needed to heat up to detect gas. That continual heating process used an enormous amount of energy which consumed the battery power quickly. By the end of a shift, and sometimes even before a shift was over, gas detectors would need to be recharged. Think of the convenience now of not having to plug a gas detector in every single day to charge it up.
Pellistor/catalytic bead LEL sensors had to have oxygen present to perform the heating process, therefore it was previously impossible to obtain accurate gas readings in inert environments. The infrared LEL sensor, using just a beam of light to detect gas, doesn’t require oxygen at all, so it always will provide an accurate gas reading in oxygen-enriched or oxygen-depleted environments.
The pellistor/catalytic bead filament was also fragile so it could burst when suddenly exposed to high levels of gas or it could easily break when the detector was accidently dropped. The infrared LEL sensor contains no fragile filament to break or burst. It also doesn’t contain beads that can get poisoned over time with exposure to typical sensor poisons such as H2S or silicones.
The Multi Gas Clip Simple is the easiest to use and easiest to maintain gas detector available today. Gas Clip Technologies’ continued development and refinement of advanced low-power photometric infrared technology for LEL measurement helps make gas detection simpler than ever in this newest member of their gas detector family.
