Offshore IR Point Detector


The Simtronics GD10P detector is the benchmark for combustible gas detection on offshore installations. It has set the standard for gas detectors in the areas of safety, stability and low maintenance. GD10P comes with 5 years warranty.

The GD10P has been designed with features that provide an effective response to the detection of gas hazards in a wide range of industrial environments from boiler plant rooms to offshore petrochemical installations.

These infrared gas detectors differ from all other models, because they utilise silicon based solid-state infrared sources. The complete optomechanical design and construction is so stable that an ultra fast speed of response can be achieved whilst providing unparalleled service life and detector stability, thus saving on maintenance and service costs.
