New Probe for Eagle and Eagle 2

Posted September 17th, 2012 by Administrator

Effective this week, RKI will start shipping a new and improved sample probe for our EAGLE and EAGLE 2 gas monitors. The new probe has several improved features over the old probe.

Improvements

 

More ergonomic design
Fits better in your hand or glove.

Compatibility
Uses the same paper dust/hydrophobic filter disc as well as the removable probe tip of original Eagle probes.

Visibility
Probe body is clear, making it easy to see condition of filters.

Flow Integrity
The new probe has 2 larger o-rings to improve seal points. Even if you forget to install the paper dust filter, it will seal and allow only sample from the probe tip to enter the instrument.

Additional filter

The new probe contains a second and more porous polypropylene dust filter cup, which will filter dirt and dust. With this extra dust filter cup, the new probe’s hydrophobic filter disc can be better utilized for filtering moisture and fine dust. The part numbers for the new and old probes are as follows:

Part Number Description
80-0131RK-10 Probe, 10”, hydrophobic, standard, with particle filter and metal fittings, Eagle / Eagle 2
80-0131RK-20 Probe, 10”, hydrophobic, standard, with metal fittings, without particle filter for Eagle 2 with PID
80-0132RK-10
Probe, 10”, hydrophobic, without particle filter, with plastic fittings for toxic gas versions
(HCL/CLO2/etc), Eagle/Eagle 2
80-0133RK-10 Probe, 30”, aluminum, with particle filter and 1641 fittings, EAGLE
80-0134RK-10 Probe, 4′, stainless steel, with particle filter, handle, and 1641 fittings, EAGLE
80-0135RK-10 Probe, 30”, stainless steel, with particle filter and 1641 fittings, EAGLE
80-0142RK-10 Probe, 30”, fiberglass, for bar hole, with particle filter, EAGLE
80-0156RK-10 Probe, 30”, fiberglass, rigid with particle filter, Eagle

SDM-2009 Calibration Station Now Shipping

Posted September 13th, 2012 by Administrator

SDM-2009 Now Shipping

RKI’s new SDM-2009 calibration station for the GX-2009 is now available with advanced features for charging, calibration, & bump testing. Once you power up the GX-2009 inside the SDM-2009 calibration module, the GX-2009’s display will indicate whether it’s transmitting data, bump testing, calibrating, as well as the results of the bump test or calibration.

Multi Module System
The SDM-2009 can also be connected to a PC for automated calibration, bump testing, and archiving of logged data including calibration and bump test records, interval and alarm trends.

Network up to 10 SDM-2009 stations to charge, calibrate, and bump test 10 instruments simultaneously.

User Guide Poster
Each SDM-2009 ships with a pictorial wall chart user guide. This guide gives the already easy to use cal station a simple pictorial easy step by step guide to calibrating or bump testing a GX-2009. It’s ideal to hang in an instrument shop or wherever the GX-2009 is located.

Inert Atmosphere Gas Monitor Now Available

Posted September 11th, 2012 by Administrator


Inert Eagle 2

EAGLE 2 with Inert Mode

The Eagle 2 with Inert Mode option is designed to operate within inert environments such as catalyst operations in refineries. An Eagle 2 with Inert Mode can be configured with sensors for LEL/CO/O2/H2S.  The LEL sensor is an Infrared sensor that measures 0-100% LEL and does not require oxygen to operate, unlike a traditional catalytic sensor which does require oxygen.  The CO sensor is used as a dual sensor to detect both CO and H2 (5 % LEL H2 = 100 PPM CO).

The instrument can be changed from Normal Mode to Inert Mode by simply pressing the Range/Shift button on the front display panel.  The Oxygen alarm points are reversed in Inert mode to alarm on increasing. The factory setting is to alarm on 5% O2 increasing and is programmable.

RKI’s new Eagle 2 Inert Monitor has the ability to monitor for rising O2 concentrations, combustible gases, and toxic gases H2S and CO. With its powerful pump, the Eagle 2 can be used with up to a 125’ hose, allowing the meter to stay with the hole attendant while monitoring the working conditions inside the cracking unit.

Inert Atmosphere
Inert atmospheres are created when oxygen is displaced by an inert gas, and often a high concentration of explosive gas may be present. An example of an inert atmosphere is the nitrogen purged catalyst units at refineries. When workers perform any catalyst handling functions in the reactors, special precautions are taken for their inert entry.

Advanced Features of Eagle 2
The Eagle 2 has the sensor technology needed for inert entry and is designed to withstand the extreme conditions surrounding the catalyst operations.

A dust filter is used in the probe tip to accommodate for fine catalyst dust.
