Product Guide Gas Analysis and Detection Equipment

Company Profile In its first ten years of trading Cambridge Sensotec has gone from strength to strength, developing into an international company with an established worldwide distributor network and gaining ISO 9001 accreditation. Initially the company specialised in zirconia sensors for measuring low ppm oxygen, particularly in vacuum applications. Having diversified, the company now offers a large range of portable and bench mounted analysers designed for heavy industry, research and development and are popular within university laboratories. The Rapidox 2100 and 3100 series which succeeded the original 2000 and 3000 range, first launched in 2001, are highly

regarded for speed of response, ease of use and value for money. A full data-logging software suite is supplied with every instrument, enhancing the usability of the range. The Rapidox range has recently been extended with the introduction of dual gas analysers and a tri-gas analyser, that measures SF6, SO2 and Dewpoint, aimed specifically at the power industry.
