Crowcon Detective Transportable Gas Monitor

Crowcon's Detective is the perfect


choice for a transportable multiple gas
detection temporary network...
Crowcon Detective is the unique solution to temporary
gas detection installation, ideally suited to shut downs or
other short-term operations. Detective's innovative design
allows a multi-gas detection system to be in place on
potentially hazardous sites within minutes. This gas leak
detection instrument is highly effective for confined
spaces, sewers and tunnel applications. Based on the
highly acclaimed Triple Plus, Detective operates from
internal rechargeable batteries and can be placed in
operation immediately without the need for power or other
infrastructure. A single Detective can detect up to four
different gases. A great feature of this versatile gas
detector is that it can be linked together with other units to
protect larger areas.
