Portable Explosion Detector ASV-1
designed to measure pre-explosive concentrations of flammable gases, vapors of flammable liquids and their complex in air and signaling about exceeding set thresholds of the measured value.
Analyte are hydrocarbons C1 – C18, vapors of organic spirits and thermofors. Exceptions are hydrogen and the components containing in its composition halogens, sulfur, silicon and phosphorus compounds.
Application areas are explosion hazard areas, indoor and outdoor installations in different industries.
Functional principle of ASV-1 is thermochemical, based on the measurement of the thermal effect of the combustion of the analyte at the surface of the catalyst. In the construction of the transmitter applies sensor point-trigger type.
Sampling by diffusion method using an external sampling device supplied also available forcing of analyzable atmosphere.
The explosion detector is configured in a rectangular case made of aluminum alloy, which houses Transducer, controller, alarm devices and power supply. On the front side of the device are arranged liquid crystal display and control keys. The explosure detector provides warning light and sound signal about thresholds are exceeded.
Explosion detector achieved species protection “intrinsically safe” level “ib” according to IEC 60079-10-98 and “explosion-proof” according to IEC 60079-1-98, marking Ex 1ExibdIIBT5 X.
Personnel protection is against contact with live parts or proximity to, and protection against ingress of solids and water in accordance with IES 529-89 IR63.
The detector has built-in software, designed to meet the challenges of measurement pre-explosive concentrations of flammable gases, vapors of flammable liquids and aggregate in the air.
