Robust Oxygen Analyzer Approved for Hazardous Area Use in Brazil

Michell Instruments’ XTP601 Oxygen Analyzer has been approved for use in explosive atmospheres by INMETRO, the Brazilian National Institute of Metrology, Standardization and Industrial Quality.

The analyzer already carries certification from ATEX, IECEx, TC TR Ex (Russia) and cCSAus: the addition of INMETRO certification increases its global coverage.

Typical hazardous applications for the XTP601 thermo-paramagnetic oxygen analyzer include monitoring of inert or blanketing gases in refining, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. It is capable of measuring oxygen ranges from 0-1% up to 0-25% and can make accurate and stable measurements of oxygen in background gases such as hydrogen and methane.

Other Michell products which also have INMETRO certification are the Easidew PRO XP explosion-proof dew-point transmitter and the MDM300 I.S. high speed portable dew-point hygrometer.
