Product Information


  • Failsafe infrared technology and low cost of ownership
    • The superior performance characteristics of infrared technology (such as poison immune and "fail-safe" operation) have been known and valued in gas detection for many years. The Dräger PIR 3000 now offers these performance benefits more affordably, combined with low maintenance costs and a long life time of more than 15 years, cost of ownership is significantly reduced.
  • Smart and flexible
    • The Dräger PIR 3000 offers a gas library with three gas categories: methane, propane and ethylene. Therefore, nearly all hydrocarbons are detectable. In addition, temperature-compensated linearisation curves allow for signal output for individual substances. Through optional accessories – e.g. the process adapter or the duct mount set – a multitude of measuring tasks can be performed professionally.
  • Suitable for the harshest conditions
    • Based on its exceptional product quality, the Dräger PIR 3000 offers high reliability and excellent measuring performance, in relation to long-term stability. With GRP junction box and 316 stainless steel enclosure, a temperature range of - 40 to + 65 °C (- 40 to + 149 °F) and heated measurement optics driving off compensation from the lens, the PIR 3000 is suitable for all the worlds climate zones.
