We are interested in four multi-gas monitors that are waterproof and rugged.
We would like two with pumps and two that are belt,carry-on.
The ones with pumps need to have tubing that can go down up to 60 feet and have filters that prevent water from being sucked up into them.
We want to be able to carry these out in the rain or in wet locations and not have to worry about replacing the sensors or purchasing new ones when the gas analyzers get wet from the rain or get dropped in the water.
The BW Honeywell GasAlert Quattro is the best option for belt, carry on. This is the most durable diffusion monitor BW make, it was designed with oil rig workers in mind so it will definitely stand up to a little rain. As for a pumped monitor you’ll want to go with BW Honeywell GasAlert Max XT II. This also has a belt clip if required. The internal pump can sample up to a maximum of 75ft and will stall if the end of the hose is submerged. The unit also has a small water filter built in to prevent water intrusion.
How long is the warranty on this product?
What is the expected life?1 answer
The manufacturer’s warranty from BW Honeywell is 2 years. This covers the instrument and sensors. Sensors are the consumable part of your gas detector. The oxygen will pretty reliably wear out a few months after 2 years elapses. The others, LEL, CO and H2S, can last much longer. We have instruments in service with customers for many years. It is not unusual to have monitors come back for new sensors, with the gas detector itself being 5 or more years old. That said, losing the instrument or abuse in the field are the usual causes for replacement. We are a fully certified repair facility for BW, with factory trained tech staff on site.
We purchased a confined space Gas Alert XT ii last August which is working well. I did not receive it as it was shipped directly to our Midwest facility. Do you not ship a certificate of compliance or QC calibration certs for the actual meter and regulator regardless that it is user calibrated periodically?1 answer
That BW GasAlert MAX XT II does come with a calibration certificate. It’s usually in the pouch with the instruction manual and CD-ROM. It’s a white, credit card size certificate. If you are unable to locate it, all we need is the serial number to request a copy from BW (usually takes 2-3 days), and would be emailed. Also, please note that calibration is recommended at least every 180 days. More frequently is even better.
I know this says Confined Space, but do Fire Departments purchase these units to use in the Fire Service?1 answer
Yes, these monitors are frequently purchased by Fire Departments. A few of our local FDs have them.
DOES THE UNIT:
1. MEASURE UP TO 100% O2
2. MEASURE UP TO 20 PPM CO
GARY R.1 answer
Here are the measuring ranges for CO & O2:
CO: 0-1000 ppm (measuring range), 1 ppm (resolution)
O2: 0-30.0 percent (measuring range), 0.1 percent (resolution)
Is it possible to buy the gas in smaller tanks when its time to replace it?1 answer
The smallest tank size for the calibration gas is 34 liters. Which is one of two options we sell on the site, 34L and 58L.
Are the sensors user replaceable and what is the average replacement cost of sensors? Can this unit be customized, say Chlorine or Ammonia sensors?1 answer
<p>If you have some technical repair background, you should be able to replace the sensors with no problem following the instructions.</p>
<p>Price for replacing a sensor ranges from $120 to $165.00.</p>
<p>This particular unit can not be customized with different sensors. If you are interested in ammonia or chlorine, we suggest looking at this monitor:</p>
