    Methane is a non-toxic, chemical compound and is the simplest alkane and main component of natural gas. Despite not being toxic, it is highly flammable and can react violently with oxidisers, halogens and some halogen-containing compounds.  Methane can be an attractive fuel due to its relative abundance; however it is also difficult to transport from its source as it is a gas at normal conditions. 

     

    It is a strong greenhouse gas and can be more powerful than carbon dioxide unit per unit.  Methane gas will be colourless and odourless at room temperature and standard pressure.  It is flammable only over a narrow range of concentrations (5-15%) in air and liquid methane will not burn unless subjected to high pressure (normally 4-5 atmospheres).  Methane reactions are hard to control and can include combustion, steam and halogenation.  It is an asphyxiant and may cause oxygen in an enclosed space to be displayed if the oxygen content is reduced to below about 16%.

    Oxygen is an important part of the atmosphere, making up approximately one-fifth of it and is necessary to form the source of our breathing and existence. It appears colourless and odourless at standard temperature and pressure. It is more soluble in water than nitrogen is and appears a light blue colour when in liquid form which is caused by absorption in the red. Liquid oxygen can be produced by condensation out of air whereas high-purity liquid forms of O2 are normally obtained by the fractional distillation of liquefied air.

     

    Although compressed oxygen gas as non-hazardous to health, non-flammable and non-reactive according to NFPA 704 standards, oxygen gas can be toxic at elevated partial pressures. Oxygen can combust when it is at a highly concentrated source and also when concentrated oxidants and fuels are brought into close proximity (triggered by heat or spark). Also, since oxygen cannot be detected by our sense of smell, oxygen-deficiency can be life-threatening (when concentration is approx. below 17 Vol-%). When oxygen concentration is below 6 Vol-%, people can experience an immediate loss of consciousness.

     

    Both gaseous and liquid oxygen can act as a fuel and can be stored using steel pipes and storage vessels which must be designed to ensure ignition sources are kept to a minimum. Human contact with liquid oxygen and other cryogenic liquids may cause frostbite to the skin and eyes.

    *Maximum Exposure Levels - MELs are for the more dangerous substances and exposure to materials with MELs should be as low as possible, certainly not above their MEL. Occupational Exposure Standards - OESs for the less dangerous materials are the exposures which can be viewed as safe, and employees can work in them day after day.

    Hydrogen sulphide has a maximum safe exposure limit of 10ppm, however high concentrations cannot be smelt and can lead to instant paralysis.  It is well known for its bad egg odour which can be smelt down to less than 0.1ppm.  It has almost the same density as air so detectors are mounted at head height or near potential sources of leaks.

    Carbon Monoxide is the most abundant toxic gas.  Different authorities put maximum safe exposure limits at 30 to 50ppm and even lower levels have the effects of causing drowsiness.  Carbon monoxide has a similar density to air and is readily inhaled, so detectors should be mounted at head height. 

    The production of carbon monoxide is caused by any process where there is incomplete combustion of carbon fuels, e.g. petrol and diesel engines, coal, gas and oil burners and even smoking.  In the case of mines, its presence is due to the slow combustion of coal.

     

    Other uses of carbon monoxide include being used in enormous quantities as a cheap chemical reducing agent in activities such as steel production, other metal refining heat treatment and also in the production of methanol by reaction with hydrogen.

Drager X-am 5000 Gas Detection Kit CatEx, O2, Dual CO/H2S, O3

This particular monitor reliably measures combustible gases and vapours, as well as O2, Dual CO/H2S and ozone gas (O3).

A New Generation

The Drager X-am 5000 multi gas detector is part of a new generation of gas detectors which have been developed specifically for personal monitoring applications.  This 1 to 5 gas detector reliably measures combustible gases and vapours as well as O2 and harmful concentrations of O3, Cl2, CO, CO H2-CP, CO2, H2, H2S, HCN, NH3, NO, NO2, PH3, SO2, COCl2, organic vapours, Odorant and Amine.  The detector has an integrated data logger and comes with the manufacturer’s and calibration certificates.

Ergonomic Mobile Phone Design 

The design of the X-am 5000 5 gas detector is similar to that of a practical mobile phone.  Despite its advanced functionality, it is light in weight and comfortable to carry.  The detector uses a two-button control panel with a large display, showing readings at a glance and an easy to follow menu to allow for intuitive use.   

Drager’s multi gas detector is resistant to water and dust ingress according to IP 67 standards.  Even if the device is dropped into water it will still remain fully functional.  Additional resistance to impact and vibration is provided by the integrated rubber protection and shock-proof sensors.

Continuous gas detection 

This 5 gas detector has 2 gas inlets on the top and bottom of the surface which is designed to make sure multi gas detection is continuous even if the device is covered or put inside a pocket.  Other features which can be of use is the visible 360° alarm and retro reflective labels which are used so the instrument is easily visible in the dark or in water.  

Durable Sensor Technology

Drager uses innovative technology in its sensors, equipped with durable XXS sensor technology.  To assist multi gas detection, dependable warnings are given in the event of explosive atmospheres thanks to the high level of sensitivity of the innovative catalytic Ex sensor.  This has a quick response to explosive gases and combustible organic vapours.  It is also highly resistant against sensor poisons such as silicone and hydrogen sulfide.  

The sensors are easy to exchange, upgrade or calibrate to other gases.  This makes more applications possible, including rental equipment.  There is a long expected sensor lifetime of more than 4 years which is beneficial in reducing your operational costs.  

Other Features and Accessories

The Drager X-am 5000 is compatible with various other accessories including an external pump, the Drager X-zone 5000 and Drager E-Cal automatic test and calibration station and the Drager Bump Test Station.  

The optional external pump external pump, which operates with a hose up to 98 feet long, makes it possible to use the detector for pre-entry measurements into confined spaces such as tanks and shafts.  

The multi gas detector can be used with the Drager X-zone 5000 for various area monitoring applications.  Up to 25 Drager X-zone 5000 units can be automatically interconnected to form a wireless fence line. This interconnection of the area monitoring devices allows for the fast securing of larger areas, e.g. pipelines or industrial tanks – even within the scope of industrial shutdowns.

The automatic test and calibration station and bump test station allow fresh air, mixed gas and single gas calibrations to be done directly using the X-am 5000 menu.  Both of these system extensions can save time and reduce workload.  

Flexible Power Supply

In terms of power supply standard alkaline or rechargeable NilMh batteries can be used with the Drager X-am 5000.  Alternatively, a T4 battery can be fitted and can be charged whilst still inside the instrument.  There is an optional Save Energy Mode available which is beneficial in increasing the operating time of the detector to more than 40 hours.
