Xgard – Fixed Gas Detector
Xgard offers three different sensor concepts so you can choose exactly what you need for your site.
- Low cost of ownership
- Wide range of sensors
- Flexible installation options
- Rugged and reliable Highly versatile
Xgard is available in flameproof, intrinsically safe, or safe area formats for use in all environments, whatever the classification.
Low cost of ownership – Xgard detectors are designed for easy installation and maintenance to keep costs down. The three junction box options are all designed to make replacement of sensors and sinters extremely simple. Spare sensors simply plug-in.
Many spare parts are common to all Xgard models, which keeps spares holding requirements to a minimum.
Wide range of sensors – Poison resistant pellistors, for all flammable detection needs including hydrocarbons, hydrogen, ammonia, jet fuel, leaded petrol and vapours containing halogens.
Electrochemical sensors are used to detect a vast range of toxic gases and oxygen.
Thermal conductivity sensors are available to monitor % volume concentrations of gases.
Flexible installation options – Xgard is designed for either wall or ceiling mounting without the need for additional brackets.
Xgard can accommodate M20, 1/2” NPT or 3/4” NPT cable glands to suit all site requirements.
High temperature models are available for hot environments (up to 150°C).
Accessories are available for duct mounting and sampling applications as well as remote gassing for simple sensor checking.
Rugged and reliable – Xgard is manufactured using a choice of three materials: glass reinforced nylon, highly durable aluminium with a tough polyester coating, or 316 stainless steel for ultimate corrosion resistance.
All versions are designed to operate even in the harshest conditions.
Spray deflectors and weatherproof caps are available for use in areas subject to regular wash-downs, or offshore environments.
All models have been validated to the functional safety standard IEC 61508 (SIL 1 to SIL 3).
The Xgard range offers a comprehensive selection of fixed point gas detectors that meet the diverse requirements for flammable and toxic gas detection and oxygen monitoring in industries throughout the world. This diagram is designed to help you choose the correct Xgard detector to suit your needs.
