    RKI GX-3R Personal Gas Monitor

    Pine item #56185

    OSHA defines the breathing zone as a ten-inch radius around the worker’s nose and mouth and requires that worker exposure monitoring air samples be collected in the breathing zone. Air sampling filters may be attached to the collar or lapel. Traditionally this means only a single gas monitor would be small enough for a worker to practically wear a gas monitor ‘In the breathing zone’. Now there is a 4-gas monitor smaller than many single gas monitors.

    • Smallest & lightest 4-gas monitor
    • 5"w x 2.55"h x 1.02"d, 3.5 oz
    • Simultaneous detection of 4-gases: LEL, 02, H2S & CO, H2 Compensated CO
    • Simple 2-button operation
