APP-TEK Safety has commenced local manufacture of a portable multigas (up to six gases) portable monitor for use in Australian industry and underground coal mines.
The new OdaLog 6000 monitor was designed in Australia to further build on the single gas OdaLog cylindrical shape, with both visual and audible alarms, and measuring up to six different gases.
The unit can be securely hung from the s/s/ hook or carried in a leather case on the belt or chest.
The advantages of the OdaLog are that it is designed with Australian conditions in mind, has 360 degree visible alarms and 16-hour plus operation per battery charge, and due to the cylindrical shape, offers protection against moisture and dusts.
These and other features assist companies to comply with latest OH&S requirements related to detecting gases.
App-Tek director Ross Church said the company had learned so much during the R&D and manufacturing phases of the OdaLog range of single gas monitors that this new product was expected to offer outstanding reliability.
“Export of this product will commence soon with App-Tek having received widespread interest in this Multigas portable following the success of the single gas OdaLog all over the world in the Waste Water industry.”
