Benefits of a Personal CO Monitor
For the first time, every blast operator can be instantly aware of dangerous levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in the breathing air supply. The Clemco CMS-3 allows the operator to respond personally, taking immediate action for his own protection, rather than relying upon a co-worker to monitor a remote alarm. The CMS-3 provides audible, visual, and vibratory alarms inside the respirator to attract the operator’s attention when CO reaches the unacceptable level of 10 ppm. It weighs a mere 1.6 ounces.
How it Works
The CMS-3 is powered by a coin-type, 3000-hour-life, lithium battery, and is calibrated with 25-ppm test gas. The monitor detects CO in the breathing air using a field-replaceable electrochemical sensor, with an estimated two-year wear life.
NIOSH has granted Clemco extensions of its respirator approvals to place the CMS-3 inside our Apollo-20, -60, and -600 supplied-air respirators. The CMS-3 also carries CSA approval as intrinsically safe.
