- Opto-electronic analysis system for selective detection of carcinogenic and toxic substances
- Lab quality measurement in ppb range
- To be used with Dräger MicroTubes
- With coupler and X-am pump suitable for CSE
Concentrations of hazardous substances in ambient workplace air must never exceed the defined limits. Monitoring these sometimes very low concentration levels is a responsible task. The Dräger X-act 7000 in combination with Dräger MicroTubes is focussed on measuring carcinogenic and toxic substances in the low ppb range. This sensitive testing system is based on colorimetric chemical sensors. These are capable of replacing conventional laboratory analysis and providing precise results right on site. This saves time and money.
The substance-specific reactive layers and multiple pre-layers in the Dräger MicroTubes allow for selective gas testing. The various layers serve as a filter, for example. During testing, they filter out other substances that occur in the workplace so that only the target substance is reflected in the test result. This greatly eliminates cross-sensitivities and reduces the number of false-positive test results and false alarms.
The RFID tags applied to the Dräger MicroTubes contain all the calibration data that apply throughout their normal lifespan of one year. This eliminates the need for lengthy function tests and manual calibration. Because it works on the basis of mass-flow measurement, air pressure fluctuations have no influence on the device. Any possible temperature or humidity influences are already accounted for during the factory calibration. The analyser is explosion-proof and certified under ATEX/IECEx for Zone 0. The system is also dust- and splash-resistant in accordance with IP54. It also meets the requirements for electromagnetic compatibility under EN 61326-1.
After an automatic self-test, the X-act 7000 analysis system is immediately ready for use. It is suitable for testing with all available Dräger MicroTubes. Simply insert the right Dräger MicroTube for your testing needs. The automatic drive carefully draws the MicroTube in and positions it. Control your test using the 3-button control and 2.4 inch colour display. When the test is complete, the green LED will glow and a message is displayed on the screen. You can store the test result, location and time in the internal data logger and read it later using the Dräger CC Vision software. The device is powered by five easily replaceable standard batteries. The life time of the recommended batteries lasts for more than ten hours of testing and can be read on the display.
Using the coupler (connector piece), the Dräger X-am® Pump can be adapted to the X-act 7000. This allows you to test for carcinogenic and toxic substances in the ppb range, even in hard-to-reach places like ducts, pipelines or tanks up to a distance of 45 metres (147.6 feet). Because the X-am Pump is also certified explosion-proof for Zone 0, it is perfectly suited for these tasks.
