Leading gas sensing technology company Gaslab has released its new wall-mounted low-oxygen safety monitor that adds new sensing capabilities.

With its sensor capable of measuring potentially dangerous oxygen levels in freezers and other low temperature applications, the RAD-0002-ZR Low Oxygen Monitor and Alarm can provide high quality sensing to multiple industries requiring low temperatures, including cryogenics and the food industry.

The device is capable of monitoring oxygen levels as low as -40°C (-33.8°F) in enclosed areas without maintenance or calibration for up to ten years.

Commenting on the company’s game-changing device, Irene Hicks, CEO, Gaslab, said, “In creating this device, we gathered critical feedback from some of the largest industries in the market.”

“Our goal was to develop a safety monitor that would exceed even the most rigorous of temperature requirements. The RAD-0002-ZR provides customers with the ability to ensure workplace safety in enclosed spaces while monitoring up to 100% nitrogen in low temperatures.”

With a new zirconium oxide sensor, the monitor is now able to operate for longer periods of time under usual conditions. In addition to this, end users can now be notified before entering a low oxygen area by audible and visual alarm indicators attached to each sensor. Flashing lights and an alarm will trigger a fire control panel in the event of a potential hazard, alerting users to evacuate the area.

The device is also centred around a user-friendly experience and has been designed with the consideration of customer feedback. Its easy-to-read LCD screen displays the current oxygen levels for an immediate reading of concentrations. The 3-user customer configurable alarms meet OSHA codes confined space regulations.

The zirconia sensor allows customers the ability to use a single system when working with storage cylinders of nitrogen, argon, ammonia, chlorine, propane, nitrous oxide, helium, argon, and many other gases.

This sensor also ensures no false alarms and no cross-sensitivity to critically low temperatures.

Ray Hicks, CTO, Gaslab, spoke about the device, saying, “Having a combined 30 years’ experience in this field, has allowed our R&D team to identify an opportunity to create a product which provides a solution for almost every low temperature or cryogenic application.”

“With continuous monitoring, extensive alarm settings, user configurability, field assurance, and much more – this device is well suited for applications where before were often not easily accessible.”

GasLab’s continued success in the industry is seen as a direct result of its partnerships and customer-focused products.
