Hydrogen sulfide gas detector receives IP66/67 approval

Det-Tronics's NTMOS hydrogen sulfide detector received an IP66/67 approval rating, which allows it to be used in petrochemical, oil and gas applications

01/13/2012


The NTMOS H2S gas detector (shown with the FlexVu Universal Display) has recently earned an ingress protection rating of IP66/67. Courtesy: Det-tronicsDetector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics) announced that its Nanotechnology Metal Oxide Semiconductor hydrogen sulfide gas (NTMOS H2S) detector has earned approval for use in locations that require an ingress protection rating of IP66/67, ideal for petrochemical, oil and gas applications. This rating was achieved as a result of the detector’s mechanical design, which protects the components against dust and forceful water during operation.

The certification joins the list of other previously obtained approvals and certifications for the NTMOS H2S gas detector, including CE, CSA, ATEX, IECEx, FM tested and certified to ISA-92.0.01.

In addition to multiple certifications, the NTMOS boasts a life-saving, speed-of-response performance that detects H2S in six seconds (T20) and delivers a detection solution in challenging environments where electrochemical sensing technologies are not preferred.
