Dräger X-pid® 9500

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 gas measurement device allows for short test times and lab-quality results.

Two modes for an efficient measurement strategy

“Seeker” mode is a wide-range measurement for pre-testing and localizing measurement points. It allows continuous, direct-reading measurement of the total concentration of all VOCs present. “Seeker” mode is similar to using a single-PID gas measurement device. 

“Analysis” mode allows selective measurement for monitoring specific toxic compounds. Predefined target compounds can be precisely measured in seconds. “Analysis” mode is similar to gas chromatography analyzes conducted in the laboratory.

Up to 90% faster

The Dräger X-pid 9500 requires no preparation and is ready to use after a brief start-up phase. Selective measurement in “Analysis” mode 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 9500 saves considerable time and enables further monitoring to be undertaken. Simultaneous measurement of other compounds, like benzene and butadiene, 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 9500 quickly pays for itself. For example, it requires no pretubes, also making it easier to use and preventing user errors. On the basis of 200 measurements per year, the Dräger X-pid 9500 is generally more cost-effective than comparable measurement systems.

High selectivity for greater safety

The selective measurement mode “Analysis” 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 9500 is optimized for measuring in this concentration range and detects benzene starting at 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 (delivery includes both). The large touchscreen and familiar user interface elements are easy to use. This makes the sophisticated technology accessible to a broad group of users. No prior knowledge or extensive training is required.

Lab-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 9500 brings these technologies directly to the hazardous area of any production site.

Simple functional test and calibration

​The functional test with the test gas isobutylene and toluene is done in just two minutes and the Dräger X-pid 9500 is ready to use. During the test the user is guided through the user interface step-by-step. The calibration is completed within about four minutes.

Software Interfaces

The GasVision 7 software is a Windows-based software with which you can professionally visualize and evaluate the data logger of your Dräger X-pid. It is also possible to create an Excel-based export for further analyses.
