SF6 AreaCheck P2 leak detector

Award winning SF6 leak detection

Designed for fixed continuous SF6 area monitoring, the AreaCheck P2 with award winning Negative Ion Capture (NIC) technology rapidly detects low-level SF6 leaks.

This fixed SF6 leak detector utilises relay output for immediate awareness of detected leaks and presents no cross sensitivity with any other gas or moisture in the air.  The AreaCheck P2 has no filter problems due to its minimum air intake (compared to pump operated systems).

Instrument setup is carried out easily via a computer or network interface, allowing optimal protection from unauthorised access. The SF6 AreaCheck P2 has a built-in low flow alarm and self-diagnostic testing.

The instrument’s serviceable components are comprised in the user exchangeable SmartSensor, with a lifetime of up to 12 months. Measuring stations are maintenance-free, ensuring instrument downtime is minimised.

Ion Science also offers a leading range of leak detectors:
