- General Details
The Tetra:3 multigas monitor is a compact, robust and easy-to-use diffusion based detector.
Single button operation, small size and clear top-mounted display make it a favourite in the market amongst those working in demanding industrial environments, such as those in the water, telecoms, food, brewing or hydrocarbons sectors.
Gases include the most common four (carbon monoxide, methane, oxygen and hydrogen sulphide), but also an expanded range: ammonia, ozone, sulphur dioxide, H2 filtered CO (for steel plants) and IR carbon dioxide (for safe area use only).
- Rugged and impact-resistant design provides extra shock and vibration protection – provides protection in the harshest environment

Gases and Ranges
Ranges and alarms vary by country and application; these can be configured as required. Each channel can have two instantaneous alarms. Toxic channels also have TWA alarms. Flammable gas calibration is available for methane, propane, butane, pentane, hydrogen and ethylene as standard.
|Hydrogen sulphide (H2S)||0-100ppm||5ppm|
|Carbon monoxide (CO)||1-500ppm||30ppm|
|Sulpher dioxide (SO2)||0-20ppm||1ppm|
|*Carbon dioxide (CO2)||0-5%||0.5ppm|
* T3 is available in a safe area CO2 version offering 0-5% carbon dioxide measurement.
The CO2 sensor replaces the flammable option and can be supplied with oxygen and toxic sensors.
