Gas sensing technologies and safety solutions company GasLab® has launched a brand-new RAD-0002-ZR Oxygen Deficiency Alarm to measure potentially dangerous oxygen levels in low temperature applications – a brand-new feature for the market.

Releasing its latest innovation on Tuesday (12th April), the Florida-based firm said the new device provides cryogenic facilities, laboratories, food packagers, and warehousing industries with low temperature freezers the ability to monitor potentially hazardous oxygen levels in conditions down to -50°C.

Being able to monitor in extremely low temperatures, however, is not the only new feature the RAD-0002-ZR Oxygen Deficiency Alarm brings to the market. The innovation’s zirconium oxide sensor ensures greater longevity under normal operating conditions extending the useful life of the device.

Travis Lenander, CEO of GasLab, said, “Our team identified a gap in the marketplace for low temperature oxygen deficiency monitoring. Our engineers were then able to design andbuild a device that exceeds the specifications and performance required in the market and at a lower cost.”

“Our goal was to develop a safety monitor that would exceed the most rigorous of temperature environments. The GasLab RAD-0002-ZR provides customers with the ability to ensure workplace safety in enclosed spaces while monitoring oxygen levels based on OSHA’s well know safety guidelines.”

Additional features of the GasLab RAD-0002-ZR also include both audible and visual alarm indications, allowing the end-user to be instantly notified before the enter an oxygen deficient environment, and an LCD screen to display oxygen levels.

Ray Hicks, Chief Technology Officer of CO2 Meter, a GasLab partner, added, “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.”
