Cambridge Sensotec launch the brand new Rapidox 3100-C IR SF6 analyser

Cambridge Sensotec is proud to announce the release of its new Rapidox 3100-C IR SF6 analyser. Fitted with a German engineered Infra Red SF6 sensor this new product allows the user improved accuracy, stability and response time when measuring SF6. Regular checking of SF6 gas insulated substations also allows the user to run fault preventative maintenance programs which can increase the life cycle of SF6 gas.

In addition to measuring SF6 the Rapidox 3100-C IR SF6 analyser also monitors SO2 (0-100ppm) and H2O (-100 to+20°Cdp). Evaluating the moisture content of SF6 is essential when monitoring the dielectric strength of the gas. SO2 measurements are vital as the decomposition products of SF6 can be identified by analysing the SO2 content of the gas, which is a product of the breakdown of SOF2 and SOF4 after an electrical discharge.

All three gases are monitored simultaneously and the bespoke software supplied with each Rapidox unit provides continuous data logging. The new Rapidox 3100-C SF6 IR analyser also includes internal data logging at a rate set by the user for later downloading to a PC. The unit will retain the internally logged data even when powered down!

The analyser is fitted with a gas output nozzle that allows all sampled gas to be recovered and recycled, ensuring that no SF6 gas is released into the atmosphere in accordance with the Kyoto treaty. The analyser can be supplied as a bench mounted instrument or as a full kit in a transport suitcase, with a range of DILO compatible sampling hoses, couplings and a thermal printer.

Cambridge Sensotec also provide low-cost SF6 Gas recovery bags to ensure no gas escapes into atmosphere when using the Rapidox 3100-C IR SF6 analyser.

There are a number of new products from Cambridge Sensotec due for release during the next few months - keep an eye out for our newsletter for more information!
