A multi-gas analyzer such as the Multi-Gas Sampling Data Logger will supply comprehensive gas analysis for oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), and carbon monoxide (CO) gases.

These gas analyzers work at a more complex rate for those seeking three to four gas monitoring to continuously assess a given environment. A multi-gas analyzer can not only identify multiple gas concentrations from a single and robust platform, but it can also enable the user to perform complete analysis with data logging and on-screen graphing of the gas concentrations on the large LCD display.

Furthermore, individuals who work in applications that store or utilize numerous gases such as scientific or medical environments, multi gas detection can be trusted to monitor these gases which are crucial in applications like cryogenics, pest abatement, incubation, laboratory studies, research, life sciences, and many others precisely and accurately.

The (CM-1000) Multi Gas Analyzer can provide useful data for research and it can also supply additional readings for Ambient Temperature (AMB), Relative Humidity (RH), Dew Point (DP), and Altitude (ALTI), which are all crucial measurements required in these specific environments.

This portable multi gas detector provides all of these benefits and features at a true value, making it a must-have.

Which Industries Require Multi-gas Detection?

Pest Abatement

Pest abatement is one intriguing application that commonly utilizes the Multi-Gas Sampling Data Logger. This application includes businesses or individuals looking to inject gas into a confined space to drive out or euthanize rodents, pests, roaches, bed bugs, or even prairie dogs.

The pests are driven from a space by driving in large volumes of high concentration CO2. The Multi Gas Sampling Data Logger is used to establish the precise high level of CO2 as well as the depletion of oxygen in the space.

CO2Meter has worked alongside many scenarios and companies over the years,  where pest abatement or control is vital, for example on commercial aircraft. A number of fleet maintenance teams are ramping up efforts to service aircraft including pest abatement due to the temporary "mothballing" of commercial aviation fleets due to Covid-19.  

Not only can inert gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) be a more cost effective means of euthanasia, the gas can also supply an efficient means of abatement without damaging any of the flight controls in the process.

Medical and Laboratory Applications

Inert gases are always present for those individuals who work in hospitals, medical facilities, research clinics and cryogenics. For those in these industries specifically it is common to find nitrogen, oxygen argon, helium, and carbon dioxide heavily utilized to freeze tissues like cancer cells, generate very low temperatures, maintain pH samples, and even operate MRI machines.

For those in this industry, the ability to accurately monitor the gases in an environmental atmosphere is vital to maintain optimal sampling data and further advance in the field. Any multi gas detection solution will always supply peace of mind that their research data is being measured and gathered in the most accurate way.

Fire Suppression Testing

For those in fire suppression applications, the multi-gas detector includes the vital component of a micropump to measure multiple gas concentrations through a single sampling port simultaneously.

CO2Meter uniquely designs the CM-1000 to NFPA 12 standards, which requires testing at low, medium, and high points within the space at specific rates, in order to further accommodate customers in need of testing their CO2 fire suppression systems.

The only device manufactured which meets these requirements is the 100% Carbon Dioxide Sampling Data Logger. Furthermore, the suppression system must reach and hold specific CO2 concentrations over a set period of time, making the 100% model of the multi detector series a necessity in this environment.

Customers also looking to understand the oxygen depletion in the environment also add a 0-25% Oxygen sensor to measure and log this valuable piece of additional data.

With analytical solutions and multi gas detection for customers growing quickly, CO2Meter gives great value to customers by providing this multi gas analyzer instead of older, single gases sensor technologies or disposable tubes. Now users can use a multi sensor platform and gain reliability, accuracy, and longevity, at the same time.

Incubation and Life-Science Applications

Technicians need the complete analysis of carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen (O2) specifically in research processes due to the utilization of many inert gases in incubation and life science environments.

As oxygen is utilized as a key component for cell growth combined with carbon dioxide for embryo development, measuring both of these inert gases is vital for controlling pH. By using the multi-gas sampling data logger from CO2Meter, researchers can maintain the specific environments required for cultures at about 20% O2 and 5-7% CO2.

Gas detection and analysis will only continue to be a vital tool to further advancements due to the explosion of incubation use, especially in fighting diseases like Covid-19.
