Drager test and calibration unit
New Dräger test and calibration station to boost gas safety and reduce costs
Leading safety specialist, Dräger, is launching a new product which will help the chemical industry stay on top of the testing and calibration of its portable gas detection instruments, at the same time as saving time and money.
The Dräger X-dock is an instrument calibration and management system which allows companies to complete automatic bump testing and calibration in seconds, using just a fraction of the test gas traditionally used with many other systems.
Significantly, the X-dock also offers a robust documentation and reporting function so that users can see the status of their portable gas detection instrument fleet at a glance and can produce calibration certificates without the need for a computer or printer.
With hundreds of very different and hazardous gases found in the chemical industry, the X-dock has the flexibility and range of multiple gas inlets to facilitate the use of different gas mixtures for testing and calibration, making it a highly advanced piece of technology. No two chemical companies are the same and with the diverse range of chemical processes and species processed and used in each plant, the three different versions of the X-dock available, ensure that every area is covered.
Three versions of the X-dock are available, including:
- X-dock 5300 a ready-to-use version which comes with a gas detection instrument module.
- X-dock 6300 a master version with three test gas connections which can be expanded up to ten modules
- X-dock 6600 a master version with six test gas connections which can be expanded up to ten modules
Because the system is completely automated, the potential for operator error is significantly lowered helping to boost gas detection safety rates.
