Det-Tronics® SmokeWatchTM U5015 Explosion-Proof Smoke Detector.

When used in tandem with the Q5016 Duct Mount Accessory, the U5015 smoke detector can be easily installed onto the exterior of duct walls for air-handling duct monitoring applications. The Q5016 senses differential pressure between inlet and outlet tubes to drive a continuous air sample through the SmokeWatch measurement chamber.

The new device has been especially designed for heavy industrial applications, such as offshore oil rigs, wastewater treatment plants and other high-hazard environments to provide crucial safety measures.

Headquartered in Minnesota, US, Det-Tronics is a leader in fire and gas-safety systems and provides premium flame and gas-detection and hazard-mitigation systems for high-risk processes and industrial operations.

Equipment designed especially for hazardous areas is critical in the production and distribution of industrial, medical and specialty gases. The February 2017 issue of gasworld (US Edition) will shine the spotlight on the essential safety equipment used throughout the industry. Make sure you don’t miss out and get your copy by emailing
