Crowcon Xgard Fixed Gas Detector

The Xgard range offers a comprehensive selection of fixed point gas detectors that meet the diverse requirements gas detection in industries throughout the world. Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) or Flameproof (Exd) versions are available for a wide range of applications.

Xsafe is a cost effective solution for flammable gas detection in safe areas such as boiler rooms, kitchens and commercial buildings.

Xgard offers a wide range of sensors:

  Poison resistant pellistors for flammable gas detection
  Electrochemical sensors are used to detect toxic gases and oxygen
  Thermal conductivity sensors to monitor volume concentrations of gases

Xgard Types

  Xgard Type 1: Intrinsically safe toxic and oxygen gas detector
  Xgard Type 2: Flameproof toxic and oxygen gas detector
  Xgard Type 3: Flameproof flammable gas detector
  Xgard Type 4: Flameproof high temperature flammable gas detector
  Xgard Type 5: Flameproof flammable gas detector with 4-20mA output
  Xgard Type 6: Flameproof thermal conductivity type gas detector
  Xsafe: Safe area flammable gas detector

Low cost of ownership

Xgard detectors are designed for easy installation and maintenance to keep costs down. The three junction box options are all designed to make replacement of sensors and sinters extremely simple.

Spare sensors simply plug-in.

Xgard Types 1 and 2 utilise oxygen sensors with a 2- year life-span, so sensor replacement costs are halved when compared to conventional oxygen detectors. Many spare parts are common to all Xgard models, which keeps spares holding requirements to a minimum.

Flexible installation options

Xgard is designed for either wall or ceiling mounting without the need for additional brackets. Xgard can accommodate M20, 1/2" NPT or 3/4" NPT cable glands to suit all site requirements.

High temperature models are available for hot environments (up to 150oC).

Accessories are available for duct mounting, and sampling applications as well as remote gassing for simple sensor checking.

Wide range of sensors

Xgard offers an extremely wide range of sensors for all applications.

Poison resistant pellistors, for all flammable detection needs including hydrocarbons, hydrogen, ammonia, jet fuel, leaded petrol and vapours containing halogens. Electrochemical sensors are used to detect a vast range of toxic gases and oxygen.

Thermal conductivity sensors are available to monitor volume concentrations of gases.

Rugged and reliable

Xgard is manufactured using a choice of three materials: glass reinforced nylon, highly durable aluminium with a tough polyester coating, or 316 stainless steel for ultimate corrosion resistance. All versions are designed to operate even in the harshest conditions.

Spray deflectors and weatherproof caps are available for use in areas subject to regular wash-downs, or offshore environments.
