Industrial Scientific has announced that the Ventis MX4 multi-gas detector has received MSHA approval for underground mining under Title 30 CFR, Part 22, when used with the standard- or extended-runtime lithium-ion battery packs. According to the company, its Ventis also provides:
- The capability to detect from 1 to 4 gases, including oxygen (O2), methane (CH4) and any 2 of the following toxic gases — carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) or sulfur dioxide (SO2).
- Full compatibility with iNet® — the company’s gas-detection-as-a-service solution — which helps keep workers safe at more than 3,000 worksites across 19 countries by providing visibility into gas detector alarms, exposure and usage.
- The flexibility to be configured with CH4, CO and O2 sensors for many everyday mining applications, or with CH4, CO, O2 and NO2 sensors, making it ideal for mines using diesel equipment.
- A lightweight design.
