O2 Deficiency (Depletion) Monitor

O2 Deficiency (Depletion) Monitor

Item #: 99016 (IN-STOCK)


Product Summary

The Oxygen (O2) Deficiency Monitor is a 0-25% room oxygen monitor designed to protect staff from oxygen depletion. Created for facilities using inert gases, PureAire’s Oxygen Deficiency Monitors detect gases like nitrogen, CO2, helium, and argon to safeguard against oxygen depletion. Perfect for confined spaces, cryogenic facilities, and freezers, our oxygen sensor remains accurate even at temperatures as low as -40C. With PureAire’s durable zirconium oxide sensor, you can rely on its non-depleting and long-life capabilities without needing replacement. Don’t compromise on safety. Protect your facility and personnel from oxygen deficiency risks. See: What is an Oxygen Deficiency Monitor.

Long-Lasting O2 Zirconium Sensor

Oxygen deficiency monitors are devices designed to measure the oxygen concentration in the ambient air and provide a real-time oxygen reading.  The PureAire Oxygen Deficiency Depletion Monitor features a long-lasting zirconium oxide sensor capable of providing accurate readings for 10+ years with no scheduled maintenance, and the Monitor comes with a full 3-year warranty.

What is the oxygen deficiency meter?

PureAire’s O2 Deficiency Monitor is suitable for a wide range of uses. From bar and restaurants, to tire repair centers, food processing plants, laboratories, and hospitals, our Oxygen Monitors ensure that nitrogen and CO2 gas are safely used and that any leaks are detected before human safety is jeopardized.  Our zirconium O2 sensor performs reliably in temperatures ranging from 60 Celsius to -40 Celsius, so it’s ideal for environments including freezers, cryogenic facilities, and frozen food manufacturing plants. The low-maintenance and long-lasting sensor provides continuous monitoring in applications in which inert nitrogen gas and CO2 gas are stored.  Once set up, the O2 zirconium sensor will operate continuously. So long as everything is operating properly, the Monitor stays silent, but if oxygen levels fall to the OSHA action level, defined as 19.5%, the Monitor’s built-in horn will sound, alerting employees to danger.

No Calibration Required

While other oxygen deficiency monitors may require semi-annual (or even more frequent) tune-ups to work properly, PureAire’s O2 Deficiency Monitor provides constant monitoring,  with no calibration required. A simple, periodic span adjustment may be necessary.  This saves our customers time and money, protects their facilities and employees, and provides them the comfort that comes from consistently reliable performance.

Plug & Play Setup

PureAire’s O2 Deficiency Monitor mounts in minutes, and it is ready to go right out of the box. Simply mount the unit on the wall in a location where oxygen needs to be monitored, plug it into the power supply, and power on the unit. After four minutes, the Monitor will begin sampling oxygen levels, which are continuously displayed on the Monitor’s screen, ensuring readily available observation at all times. Our customers appreciate a reliable oxygen sensor that is easy to use and read, and that operates 24/7, with no oversight or scheduled maintenance necessary, for up to 10 years.

PureAire O2 Deficiency Monitor Features

To suit the needs of the user, the PureAire O2 Deficiency Depletion Monitor comes in a range of configurations. Every unit comes with a full-featured, dual-level monitor, options for alarm relays, and hysteresis to account for supply valves for CO2 and nitrogen. All units have a built-in CPU that houses the monitor, display, and alarm
