Newly introduced Extrima intrinsically safe leak detector (Ex) is for hazardous environments. It meets the
ATEX directive (CSA certified) and may be used for leak testing in explosive environments, such as chemical/petrochemical plant pipe work systems.
The leak detector is for leak detection using diluted hydrogen as a trace gas for use in explosive environments, where the security requirements are extremely high.
Extrima has the European Ex ia IIC T3 classification equivalent to US Class 1, Div. 1, Groups A, B, C, and D — which means that it meets the requirements for use in zone 0 according to ATEX directive (ATmosphere EXplosible) of the European Commission.
The portable and lightweight Extrima is based on the firm’s H2000 detector and is declared to quickly detect and locate leaks at levels 1,000 times more sensitive than traditional bubble methods.
