Xam-EXPLO portable explosive gas detector (explosimeter)

The Xam-EXPLO ATEX explosimeter is a portable explosive gas detector equipped with a catalytic filament sensor.  Robust and lightweight, it detects all explosive gases in the atmosphere, such as natural gas, butane, propane, hydrogen, hydrocarbons, solvents or alcohols, and indicates in real time the lower explosive limit in %LEL.

  • Detection of ATEX explosive gases from 0 to 100% LEL (Lower Explosive Limit)
  • Extremely robust, shockproof, dust- and water-resistant device (IP66 and IP67)
  • 95 dB audible, visual and vibrating alarms for 2 thresholds, STEL and TWA.
  • Optional clip-on pump for remote gas sampling
  • Safety approvals: ATEX, IECEx, CSA
Additional information

ATEX Zone 0 approved, the Xam-EXPLO explosive gas detector is equipped with an Ex catalytic sensor offering excellent resistance to silicone and hydrogen sulfide poisoning, with a service life of over 4 years. It can be fitted with 3 additional cells for carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and oxygen (O2), making it a portable 4-gas detector.

Lightweight and ergonomic, the Dräger Xam EXPLO explosimeter is particularly well-suited to industrial environments. The device is protected against water and dust to IP 67, ensuring that its full functionality is preserved even after a fall into water.

A 90 dB audible alarm at 30 cm and a 360° high-visibility visual alarm are complemented by a vibrating alarm. An optional sampling pump enables gas to be sampled from a distance of up to 30 meters, ideal for entry permit measurements, work in tanks or leak detection. Switching from diffusion to pump mode is quick, easy and tool-free.

Like all gas detectors, the Xam-EXPLO must be regularly maintained and calibrated (every 6 months) to guarantee reliable, accurate measurements over time. Calibration is carried out by default with methane or pentane, depending on the explosive gases to be detected.

Main explosive gases detected in % LEL : 

Acetylene - Ammonia - Benzene - Butane - Ethanol - Ethylene - Formaldehyde - LPG - Hydrogen - Methane - Carbon monoxide - Ethylene oxide - Pentane - Propane - Styrene - Toluene
