RKI GX-2012 Purge Testing Instrument is an application that requires a special configuration of the GX-2012 and the addition of the “T” fitting adapter. It essentially adds a second combustible sensor that extends the detectable range of CH4 up to 100% Vol. (the LEL sensor is only up to 5% Vol or 100% LEL). A standard 4-gas confined space instrument will not adequately test for safe conditions during this process, as the high gas level will overwhelm or damage an LEL sensor, and the sensor will not function in an oxygen-depleted (inert) atmosphere. All measurements are taken at stand pipe or diffuser with service valve cracked.

Applications: Personal monitoring, Confined space entry, Refineries / petrochemical, Chemical plants, Hazardous material, Water / wastewater treatment, Fire services, Mining
