The SD-1 Gas detector head transmitter combustible has a built-in display and signal converter. It is a state-of-the-art hazardous area gas detection transmitter. The Instrument has ranges for ppm and %LEL. The SD-1 measures combustible vapours or gases like methane (CH4) or general hydrocarbons (HC), toxics Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) and Carbon Monoxide (CO). In addition the IECEx ATEX has a certified flameproof enclosure . It is therefore also suitable for acetylene and hydrogen environments.

SD-1 For Hydrogen detection :

New European legislation has reclassified Power station generator rooms as Zone 2 areas. Operators are therefore required to follow procedures to alleviate any explosion risk.

The Riken Keiki  SD-1 has an IECEx ATEX certified flameproof enclosure suitable for Hydrogen environments.  It is therefore ideal for use in a fixed Hydrogen detection system in power station generator halls. It can detect hydrogen at ppm levels giving plenty of warning of a leak.

SD-1 For Oxygen :

The SD-1OX is an Oxygen monitor and detector. It has multiple range options that include 0-5% Vol ( Ideal for Furnace applications ) as well as 0-10% Vol. The SD-1OX has 0-25%, 0-50% Vol as well as 0-100% Vol ranges available on request. Customers use the SD-1OX in numerous applications in Furnace , Marine as well as the Petrochemical and Oil industries.

A suction adapter (SD-1D) fitted over the detector head is available that can be used in conjunction  with a remote sampling pump such as the air aspirator unit (SD-1D-AS).  This is ideal for applications where standard diffusion detection may not be suitable.

Our Customer's Thoughts


Dangers of Flammable Gases

Flammable gases pose significant dangers due to their ability to ignite and sustain combustion. Here are some of the key hazards associated with flammable gases: Fire and Explosion: Flammable gases can ignite easily in the presence of an ignition source such as a spark, flame, or heat. Once ignited, they can rapidly propagate combustion, leading to fires and explosions. These ...

Volatile Organic Compounds ( VOC’s )

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a group of chemicals that can easily evaporate into the air at room temperature. They are emitted from a wide array of sources, including household products, building materials, and industrial processes. While many VOCs are harmless, some can pose significant health risks, especially when present in high concentrations or in poorly ventilated spaces. Here are ...
