Weatherall are pleased to announce the launch of the SC-04 single gas monitor for Ammonia 0-300ppm range .
The latest member of the popular SC-04 series of small personal monitors the SC-04-NH3 adds Ammonia to the range of gases the SC-04 can detect.
With a range of 0-400ppm, long battery life and competitive cost the SC-04-NH3 replaces the long serving SC-01-NH3 detector but is much smaller and lighter and has a warranty of 3 years which includes the sensor

Catalytic combustion sensors are the standard method for detecting combustible gases including Hydrogen, however in order to operate a minimum of about 10% Oxygen needs to be present. IR sensors are a good solution to this problem for measuring most combustible gases in an inert environment where O2 levels are below 10% volume but IR sensors cannot detect Hydrogen.
Riken Keiki offers several solutions around this problem.View Story
