The Analox Aspida O2 and CO2 Portable Monitor is an ideal solution to protect staff from the dangers of a leak of gas. Personal and portable, it safeguards staff in the laboratory and those in the beverage and hospitality industry from the dangers of a leak of carbon dioxide, enriched oxygen or inert gases.
The Aspida is a robust, high specification personal monitor which can be worn on a belt or even wall mounted as a backup to a primary CO2 or O2 safety system. It offers audio/visual alarms, data logging and a man down alarm.
Standards such as EH40 in Europe mandate that employees are not exposed to potentially dangerous levels of CO2 as it is a highly toxic gas in relatively small quantities. The Aspida is an affordable, easy to operate CO2 monitor and is ideal for ensuring personal safety in the areas where gas is piped or stored. The same standards also require that consideration is given to asphyxiant dangers where inert gases such as nitrogen, argon or helium are used, a portable, personal monitor, like the Aspida, may be appropriate following a risk assessment.
