Honeywell launches wireless portable gas monitor
Industry’s first six-gas, Benzene-specific monitor promises new level of safety protection for confined space and hazardous site workers
Honeywell launched MultiRAE Benzene, the industry’s first wireless portable six-gas monitor with a benzene-specific, snapshot measurement designed to protect worker safety in hazardous environments.
The new MultiRAE Benzene includes a six-tube cartridge—called RAE SepTubeTM Cartridge—that operates in conjunction with the unit’s photoionization (PID) sensor.
The MultiRAE Benzene measures benzene in the 0.1 to 200 ppm range while the RAE SepTubeTM Cartridge filters out other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and gases, eliminating cross-interference, a long-time problem in benzene-specific detection.
“Benzene snapshot specific measurement combined with a six-gas portable monitor adds a critical component to what already is the industry’s leading portable gas monitor for industrial safety managers,” said Gautier Mallet, product manager for Honeywell Industrial Safety. “Now plant managers can provide a higher degree of protection for their workers while increasing operational efficiency. With snapshot benzene measurement, MultiRAE Benzene allows confined space pre-screening with one instrument rather than two, and can quickly evaluate potential benzene sources.”
Other MultiRAE features of note include wireless connectivity as a standalone or networkable solution; intelligent, field-replaceable sensors including oxygen, LEL combustibles, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and others; up to six months’ datalogging; automatic bump test and calibration (with AutoRAE2) and stainless-steel housing with IP-65 water/dust ingress protection.
