Long Life Oxygen Sensors
Our ALPHA OMEGA INSTRUMENTS™ Safety Monitors and Trace and Percent Oxygen Transmitters feature a long-life ambient temperature electrochemical sensor that has a functional life of up to three times that of most “fuel cell” type sensors. The enhanced mechanical design of the sensor ensures longer life, and virtually eliminates leakage of caustic electrolyte, a nagging (and expensive) problem associated with sensors that require periodic electrolyte maintenance. And, because the sensor is sealed, it is not position sensitive. In addition, unlike some electrochemical sensors, our readings do not require manual adjustment based on changes in the molecular weights of the sample gas i.e. helium, hydrogen, etc. This is a major advantage for continuous measuring applications. The output from the sensor is both linear and temperature compensated to provide optimum performance.
Our Oxygen Deficiency Monitors can be equipped with a local oxygen sensor and/or up to two remote sensors. The sensors featured in the Series 1300 are extended life electrochemical oxygen sensors designed with a proprietary Enhanced Electrolyte System (EES™) that extends the life expectancy of the sensor to years instead of approximately 12 months typical of most “fuel cell type” sensors. The oxygen sensors are designed with open diffusers eliminating the need to use sample pumps. The sensors are backed with a full three (3) year warranty. Users can expect sensor life well beyond years, helping to ensure reliable and trouble-free performance.
