Dräger PIR 3000

Safe monitoring of flammable hydrocarbons – the Dräger PIR 3000 stands out through its high-quality measuring performance and its exceptional price-performance ratio.

Introduction to infrared technology

The technological advantages of infrared technology (such as poison resistance and "fail-safe" operation) have been known and esteemed on the market for a long time.
The Dräger PIR 3000 now offers this asset for even more economical use, combined with low maintenance costs and a long life time of more than 15 years.

Smart and flexible

The Dräger PIR 3000 offers a gas library with three gas categories: Methane, propane and ethylene. Therefore, nearly all hydrocarbons are detectable sufficiently well and sensitive. And finally, temperature-compensatory linearizing algorithms allow for signal output for individual substances.
Through optional accessories – e.g. the process adapter or the duct mount set – a multitude of measuring tasks can be performed professionally.

Suitable for the harshest conditions

Based on its exceptional product quality, the Dräger PIR 3000 offers high reliability and excellent measuring performance, e.g. in relation to long-term stability.
With its enclosure made of stainless steel SS 316, its specified temperature range from - 40 to + 65 °C (- 40 to + 149 °F) as well as due to the integrated heating, the transmitter can be used in all the world's climate zones.
