IR-6000 Infrared Hydrocarbon Sensor/Transmitter

IR-6000 Infrared Hydrocarbon Sensor/Transmitter

Infrared Hydrocarbon Sensor/Transmitterfor 0-100% LEL

The IR-6000 hydrocarbon detector is a single source dual wavelength instrument. The sensing and reference elements are self-compensating for optical integrity and other signal inhibitors. The 4-20 mA analog output can be connected to one of the several controllers available from ENMET. These controllers furnish 24 VDC power for sensor/transmitters and provide a digital display of gas concentration, audio/visual alarm and relays.



  • Infrared sensor
  • 24 VDC, 4-20 mA
  • Low power consumption
  • Stainless steel construction
  • Immune to poisoning
  • Operates in anaerobic atmospheres and in continuous hydrocarbon environments
  • Low maintenance
  • Designed for harsh environments
  • 0-100% LEL detection range
  • Explosion-proof

Typical Applications

The IR-6000 hydrocarbon detector is designed to be used in the same applications where catalytic bead type combustible gas sensors have been applied.  A partial list of example applications would include:

■ Refineries

■ Gas turbines

■ Drilling and production platform

■ Chemical plants

■ Fuel loading facilities

■ Compressor stations

■ Oil well logging

■ Wastewater treatment facilities

■ LNG/LPG processing and storage facilities
