Dräger X-pid® 8500

​The selective PID gas measurement device is ideal for users who frequently test for hazardous toxic substances. Benzene, butadiene and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are carcinogenic even in the smallest concentrations. Selective measurement is necessary because other gases and vapors are often also present. The Dräger X-pid® 8500 allows for short test times and laboratory-quality results.

Multigas detector

  • ​Selective VOC gas detection
  • For frequent testing of toxic & carcinogenic substances
  • Laboratory quality results in very low concentrations
  • Benzene measurement starting from 50 ppb
  • No consumables per measurement

Integrated techniques bring gas detection to a new level

​​The Dräger X-pid 8500 allows selective measurement for monitoring specific compounds. Pre-defined target compounds can be accurately measured in seconds. The Dräger X-pid 8500 analyzer is a streamlined version of gas chromatography analyses conducted in the laboratory. But it builds on that as the user now can easily take the analysis to the field where intrinsic safety certifications may be required.

Time savings of up to 90%

The Dräger X-pid 8500 requires no preparation and is ready to use after a brief start-up phase. Selective measurement takes only a few seconds. A benzene measurement starts with the push of a button and is completed in only 30 seconds. After another 60 seconds, the device is ready to measure for benzene again. Compared with other detection systems, the Dräger X-pid 8500 saves considerable time and enables further monitoring to be undertaken. Simultaneous measurement of other compounds further reduces testing times.

Cost savings

​Because no consumables are used to take measurements, operating costs can be reduced. For users with high measurement needs, the Dräger X-pid 8500 quickly pays for itself. For example, it requires no pre-tubes, also making it easier to use and helps prevent user errors. On the basis of about 200 measurements per year, the Dräger X-pid 8500 is generally more cost-effective than comparable yet more cumbersome measurement systems.

High selectivity for greater safety

​The X-pid 8500 relies on technology which separates individual compounds present in mixed gases. This makes it possible to conduct a compound-specific measurement for benzene, even if other VOCs like toluene and xylene are also present in high concentrations. Cross-sensitivities for benzene are reduced to a minimum. This reduces the number of false-positive measurement results and false alarms.

Reliable performance under tough conditions

​The influence on measurement results by environmental factors like variable ambient temperature or high humidity are reduced to a minimum. The sensor unit maintains a constant temperature above the ambient air temperature and separates water vapor from the target compounds. This ensures reliable measurements under tough environmental conditions.

Low detection limits

​Concentrations of toxic compounds in the air at work sites must not exceed threshold limit values. Mandatory time-weighted averages in the low ppb to ppm range need to be performed for carcinogenic vapors like benzene. The Dräger X-pid 8500 is optimized for measuring in this concentration range and detects benzene concentrations as low as 50 ppb.

Intuitive handling with mobile app

​The sensor unit is controlled and the measurement data processing is conducted by a mobile app installed on an explosion-proof smartphone. The large touch screen and familiar user interface are easy to use. This makes the sophisticated technology accessible to a broad group of users. No prior knowledge or extensive training is required.

Laboratory-quality measurement results

​The gas measurement device is based on gas chromatography (GC) and photoionization detection (PID) technologies. These technologies, used widely in laboratories, have a high acceptability due to their excellent analytical performance. The Dräger X-pid 8500 brings these technologies directly to the hazardous area of any production site.

Simple functional test and easy calibration

​The functional test with isobutylene and toluene test gases is done in just two minutes and the Dräger X-pid 8500 is ready to use. During the functional test the user is guided through the user interface step-by-step. Only if the functional test fails, a calibration with the same test gas standard will be required, which will be completed in about four minutes.
