SPM Flex Gas Detector
Introduction
The SPM Flex gas detector is an extractive gas monitoring system that draws gas
samples locally or from a remote point to a Chemcassette® tape-based optical gas
detection system. A wide range of toxic gas Chemcassette cartridges are available
that enable detection of gases used or generated in semiconductor manufacturing
and industrial environments.
The SPM Flex gas detector, available in wall mounted and portable versions,
locally displays gas concentration, alarm, fault and status information via its backlit
color LCD and LEDs. A simple to use 4-button keypad adjacent to the display
provides the ability to set-up, review, operate and make changes to the detector’s
configuration. The intuitive display and menu structure are designed to require
minimal training. The SPM Flex has a local audio alarm with user-configurable
output levels. The detector can be used both indoors and outdoors in a wide range
of weather conditions.
The detector has flexible power and communications capabilities. These include
3 on-board relays, 4-20 mA analog output and Modbus/TCP outputs for signal
and service connectivity. The gas detector is equipped with a USB port for
configuration-sharing firmware updates and data downloads. For web-enabled
devices, web pages are available via the Ethernet port.
Standard operation conditions
The SPM Flex gas detector is designed for use in temperatures between 32ºF
and 104ºF (0ºC and 40ºC) and relative humidities between 0 and 100% (the
relative humidities are limited by tape and calibration). The sample line will require
additional hardware to remove moisture in high relative humidity conditions where
condensing may occur (the sample must be non-condensing). Dry conditions may
require humidification.
High-altitude applications
The SPM Flex pump is optimized for operation at altitudes between –1000 feet
(–305 meters) and 3000 ft. (945 m) above sea level. At altitudes above 3,000 ft.
(915 m), up to a maximum of 6,000 ft. (1,830 m), contact Honeywell Analytics for
calibration. (At 6,000 feet, pump capacity is reduced 18% and a flow-system
adjustment to the bypass valve is required. This must be performed by a Honeywell
Analytics certified technician. Contact Customer Service.)

SPM Flex Gas Detector
Battery operation
The SPM Flex gas detector is supplied with a power supply/charger than can
connect the detector’s power connection and a standard wall outlet. (Ensure that
the correct power cable has been ordered for local operation.) The power supply/
charger is designed for indoor, dry-location use only. The lithium-ion battery pack
provides continuous operation of 6+ hours, depending on sampling conditions
and unit configuration. The battery’s charge time is typically 4 hours. The
detector can be operated while its battery is being charged (this may increase
the charge time). Because batteries discharge slowly when not in use, Honeywell
Analytics recommends keeping the detector connected to the power supply/
charger when not in use.
! WARNING
•The battery is not field-replaceable. Return the unit to Honeywell Analytics if
a battery replacement is necessary.
•Risk of fire and burns. Do not open, crush, heat above 140ºF (60ºC), or
incinerate the battery. Follow manufacturer’s instructions.
How to extend battery life
Power consumption is optimized to extend battery life when not in monitor
mode. In addition, the unit should not be exposed to extreme temperatures
which shortens battery life. The time before recharging is required can be
extended by taking the detector out of monitor mode when it is not in use.
How to recharge an overly-discharged battery
If the battery indicates 0% charge and does not appear to be charging when
plugged into the power supply, it may be overly discharged. Follow these steps:
1. Verify that the latest software has been installed. The detector’s software
version can be found by navigating to the Software option on the Review
menu. If necessary, the current software can be downloaded from the SPM
Flex section of the Honeywell Analytics website (see page 7). Install the
new software from a USB flash drive by following the prompts in the Update
Program option on the Maintenance menu.
2. Turn the detector off and then power it up again. This will reinitiate the
charging circuit. Initially (until the battery reaches the normal charge range),
the detector will slow charge. The process can take 6 hours.
11
SPM Flex Gas Detector
The handle (portable model)
The detector can be conveniently carried with the optional handle, which is
mounted onto the cover at three locations. If necessary, the handle can be
removed by the user by removing two bolts. All of the detector’s functions
can be performed with the handle attached. The handle swings out of the
way for access to the Chemcassette cartridge area.
Opening the cover
Figure 2. Opening the detector cover
Release the cover by first unscrewing the handle pin. Pivot the handle up as
shown in the illustration and push down the four latches (two on each side).
The detector cover will then be free to swing open, allowing a Chemcassette
cartridge to be inserted or replaced, the power switch to be turned on or off,
or the USB data port to be accessed.

SPM Flex Gas Detector
Wiring and tubing
Typical fixed installation topologies
The SPM Flex gas detector has flexible installation options that allow the
user to select the one most suitable for a specific application. The detector
is supplied with weather-sealed connectors for power, Ethernet, and
communications (for relays or 4-20 mA). The Ethernet port can be replaced
with an appropriate connection in accordance with local codes (allowing
the user to wire directly to the terminal block). Install each detector near a
dedicated circuit breaker.
! CAUTION
• The safety of any system incorporating the SPM Flex gas detector is
the responsibility of the assembler of the system.
• Position a permanently-installed SPM Flex gas detector so that it does
not interfere with access to the dedicated circuit breaker.
• Use only the power adaptor described in the Specifications section
(see page 61).
• Use the power adaptor only in indoor applications.
This table shows the default wiring configuration for the IP-rated
communication connector when installed by Honeywell Analytics. The relays
are labeled for the factory default but the configuration can be modified to
have a single alarm and separate faults.

4-20 mA wiring
4-20 mA output is a three-wire connection that is configurable as sink, source,
or isolated (isolated is the default), as shown in these following figures. Use a
hex key to remove the wiring cover for access to the terminals. There must be a
200-600-ohm load on the 4-20 mA line.
To ensure adequate resolution to overcome tolerance in the 4-20 mA reading,
set the full scale at an appropriate level. The SPM Flex issues a fault if the
measured 4-20 mA reading is more than 0.8 mA (5% full scale) off from the
expected drive value.

Tubing (optional)
Sample and exhaust tubing calculations
This table shows the flow rate, tubing length, transport time, and maximum
pressure and vacuum at the inlet and exhaust points.
Allowable tubing lengths vary among gases (see the Detectable Gases table
on page 60). If the pressure or vacuum on the inlet/exhaust lines does not
meet the recommended values, the detector may encounter flow faults. The
maximum total tubing length (inlet + outlet) is 100 ft. (30 m).

Mounting options
! CAUTION
The SPM Flex detector must be installed only by qualified professional
personnel in accordance with local codes.
The SPM Flex gas detector has an optional mounting bracket assembly that
is easily affixed to a suitable vertical surface such as a wall, tool housing,
mounting plate on a pole etc.
Two mounting bracket options are available for fixed units: The standard
kit is for typical/new applications in which the detector is to be mounted
to, for example, a wall. A second option, a retrofit mounting, is a plate to be
used when replacing a Honeywell Analytics SPM detector with the SPM Flex
detector.
Mount the detector with at least two appropriate fasteners (e.g., concrete screws
when mounting on concrete, etc.). The fastener combination must be capable of
securely holding four times the detector’s weight, approximately 40 lbs (18.2 kg).
When mounting the detector on sheetrock, the fasteners must be attached to
studs.

4. Repeat on the other side of the detector.
5. The handle is hinged to allow access to the Chemcassette cartridge
compartment. Lower the handle and secure it with the thumbscrew.
6. If the optional shoulder strap is to be used, attach its spring clips to each of
the rings on the detector’s handle. The strap must be laundered before use in
clean-room applications.
In-line filters
Use an external filter to protect the tubing and the detector from
contamination. Use particulate filter part number 780248 for non-corrosive
gases. Use filter 1991-0147 for corrosive gases. Refer to the Detectable
Gases table on page 60 for specific gases. Filters should be replaced every
3 to 6 months of operation, depending on the cleanliness of the installation
environment. Note that filters are not used with diisocyanates, hydrazine,
ozone, or hydrogen peroxide so regular maintenance cleaning is especially
important for detectors exposed to those gases.
32
SPM Flex Gas Detector
Optional sampling wand
The sampling wand is connected to the inlet port and used to detect toxic gas
at specific locations2. An inlet filter is installed in the grip to prevent debris
from entering the unit. All gas-wet surfaces are either Teflon-coated or made of
Kynar to be compatible with sticky corrosive gases. An appropriate filter should
be used for the gas type being monitored. Refer to the Detectable Gases table
on page 60.
The sampling wand is supplied with the mounting bracket and required
hardware.

SPM Flex Gas Detector
Operation
! WARNING
•Protection afforded by the SPM Flex gas detector may be impaired if it is
not used according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
•Operate two-way radios at least 18 inches (46 cm) from the detector.
•When the detector is in monitor mode and is moved between
environments with large differences in temperatures or humidity,
condensation on the optics may cause it to report a false low gas
concentration reading. Allow the unit to stabilize in the new environment
before monitoring gas levels.
Power
Before operation, verify that external power is present (the blue LED will
be on) or that the internal battery is charged. The physical power switch,
located under the Chemcassette access door, should be on. Typically, it
is recommended to leave the physical switch in the on position unless
transporting/shipping the unit where there is a possibility of the detector
accidentally being turned on with the soft power switch.
When the detector’s startup sequence ends, an “In Monitor,” or “Out of
Monitor” display, depending on how it is configured in the Setup menu.
The default startup mode can be configured under Power Options (Setup/
General).
Most options will require acknowledgment (i.e., pressing the Select button).
Those that don’t will be displayed for 3 seconds. Pressing the Power button
briefly will return the user to the previous screen. Do not power up the
detector with a flash drive attached.
To turn the unit off, hold the Power button for 5 seconds while on the main
display. This will bring up the power off options. Alternately, the power off
mode can be accessed via the menu. The user must have the appropriate
security level to access.
The detector can be used intermittently as long as the Chemcassette
cartridge is removed and stored according to manufacturer’s guidelines.
34
SPM Flex Gas Detector
Controls
The arrows are used to scroll up and down through lists of options, highlighting
one at a time. The select button is used to select a highlighted selection. During
operation, the power button will cancel a command or, when pressed for more
than 3 seconds, will display the main menu.
The Open/Close Gate function (see Maintenance on page 50) can be used to
open the gate and remove the cartridge for storage.
The detector provides tactile and visual feedback (clicks and the unit’s LCD
display) to all key presses. The display reflects key presses by illuminating
icons representing each of the buttons.
The blinking green LED indicates that the unit is on. The green LED blink
rate is faster during bootup. The yellow LED indicates a fault; it blinks during
instrument faults and is steady during maintenance faults. The red LED
indicates alarms; a steady light indicates an Alarm 1, a blinking LED indicates
and Alarm 2. The blue LED indicates that the unit is receiving external power.
The concentration level of the gas is displayed with the name of the gas below
the left side of the display and the units of concentration below its right side.
! CAUTION
Do not leave the optics gate of fixed units open. Doing so may allow
pressurized gases to escape through the tubing into the unit and then into the
local environment.
Time
There is a real-time clock in the header bar. The real-time clock also verifies
that the detector is active.
Audible alarm
The alarm can be configured for high, medium, and low sound levels. The
sound can also be turned off. Low is approximately 75 dB at 1 meter (for
office/lab use), Medium is approximately 85 dB at 1 meter (for light industrial
use), and High is greater than 90 dB at 1 meter (for heavy industrial use).
Monitoring icons
A round green icon in the lower left of the display indicates that the detector
is on and detecting. “In monitor” is shown next to the icon and the current
gas concentration is displayed. The icon changes to indicate that the detector
is out of monitor mode, or is in a fault or alarm state. Alarms and faults can
be present simultaneously (the alarm will supercede fault notification on the
main display and status bar color). When the detector is not detecting, “Out of
monitor” is displayed and 4 dashes are shown instead of a gas concentration.
When the detector is out of monitor mode, the status bar will change to blue.
When a gas concentration exceeds the limit, “Over limit” is displayed and the
gas concentration is preceded by the greater-than symbol (“>”).
35
SPM Flex Gas Detector
Battery
The detector’s battery level is indicated from 0 (fully discharged) to 100%
(fully charged). The battery icon displays the approximate battery level on
the status bar, while a more accurate value can be found in the Review mode
under Additional Status. If the battery’s charge is too low for safe operation,
a “Critically low battery!” message will be displayed and the detector will turn
off.
Bar graph
The bar graph displays the concentration reading up to double the Alarm
2 value for the gas being monitored. The Alarm 1 and Alarm 2 values are
indicated numerically on the bar graph.
The display can be configured for different backlight and dimming options.
By default the backlight will dim after a few minutes of no activity. The display
can be configured to turn off the backlight entirely after a set period of time.
Inhibit
When the detector is in inhibit mode, it will show a bell icon with a red slash
through it.
1. Use the [Up] or [Down] buttons to select the “Inhibit” on the Maintenance
menu.
2. Press the [Accept] button.
3. The Inhibit Type menu or the Time Out menu can then be selected. Possible
inhibit types are none, alarms only, faults only, alarms and faults, and all,
as shown in the following table). The Time Out options (the time until the
detector exits inhibit mode and returns to active monitoring) are from 1 to 60
minutes.
4. To take the unit out of inhibit, select “None” from the Inhibit Type menu and
press the [Accept] button twice to return to the Maintenance menu.
NOTE
If the inhibit times out before the inhibit state is returned to “none,”
maintenance fault code M17 will be displayed.

number, expiration date, and the days remaining before it must be changed.
The expiration date of the ChemCassette when viewed in Review Mode
is based on the date it was installed in the gas detector. (The date on the
Chemcassette’s label is for a properly-stored Chemcassette cartridge in its
sealed package.)
Gas Settings
The gas being detected, its abbreviation, the CAS number, the LDL, the full
scale, the Alarms 1 and 2 setpoints, and the 4-20 mA full scale can be seen on
the Gas Settings review screen.
Network
The Network Summary option displays the IP address, the Subnet mask, the
Gateway, and the MAC address.

39
SPM Flex Gas Detector
Maintenance menu
Inhibit
Alarms or alarms and faults can be inhibited from the Maintenance menu.
The timeout period (the length of time before inhibit mode is exited and
monitoring resumes) can also be configured here. The range is 1 to 60
minutes. The default timeout period is 30 minutes. A timeout period of 0
minutes means that the feature is disabled.
4-20 mA current loop calibration
This feature allows the detector’s output to match an external monitoring
device.
Flow characterization
Flow characterization is an optional function. When utilized, it allows a flow
system to be optimized with a certain type of Chemcassette cartridge. This
allows the SPM Flex detector to quickly reach the correct flow rate.
Open/close gate
The gate can be opened and closed manually (from the Maintenance menu).
For intermittent use, this allows Chemcassette cartridges to be conveniently
removed and stored.
Update program
Through the Update program option, the new firmware can be loaded via the
USB port.
Factory service mode
For Honeywell Analytics service personnel only.
Setup menu
Many of the functions of the SPM Flex detector can be configured from the
Setup menu.
General
The backlight intensity and timeout period are chosen from this menu as
well. The power-up options are chosen from this menu. The detector can
be programmed to be in monitoring mode or out of monitoring mode when
powered up. Out of monitoring mode is the default state. It can also be
programmed to power up in the state it was in when it was powered down.
Finally, if languages other than English are loaded in the detector’s software,
the language can be chosen from the General menu.
40
SPM Flex Gas Detector
The unit IDs, either short (up to 20 characters) or long (up to 35 characters) and
an idle timeout period of from 1 to 60 minutes (20 minutes default) can also be
entered from the General menu. An idle timeout period of 0 minutes will disable
the idle timeout function.
Monitoring
The available gases are displayed and can be selected from the Gas menu.
Alarms 1 and 2 can be enabled or disabled and their respective setpoints can be
adjusted. The LDL can also be enabled or disabled and user-defined LDL limits
can be entered. The minimum and maximum values for the 4-20 mA full scale
can be entered.
The TWA mode can be set for either a fixed start time or a floating start time at
the TWA menu. The default is 08:00 but another time can be entered by the user.
In this case, the detector will calculate the second time (8 hours later) and third
time (16 hours later).
Before storing the detector following a gas event, purge the flow system by
operating the detector in clean air until it returns to zero. If the case must be
wiped down, install push fittings in the Sample In/Out ports to prevent fluids
from entering the detector.
NOTE
The detector’s continuous monitoring algorithm enables a fast response and
high sensitivity. It also rapidly indicates trends. However, in some cases, this
algorithm can cause the decay time to be substantial, especially with gases
having slow stain development, specifically low level AsH3 and GeH4. In
the absence of gas, it may be necessary to continue monitoring for several
minutes before zero concentration is reported.
Latching
The SPM Flex detector’s alarms and faults can be either latching or nonlatching, depending on the settings on the Latching menu. The default for both
is latching.
Outputs
The detector’s display characteristics (e.g., brightness, time to dim/time to off)
are set at the Display menu. The volume of the alarms (silent, low, medium,
or high) are chosen from the Audio menu options. Parameters set from the
Relays menu are relay assignments, that alarm relay’s normal state (energized
or de-energized), and the maintenance fault’s normal state (energized or deenergized). Three parameters can be set from the 4-20 mA Levels menu: the
inhibit level from 1.5 mA to 3.5 mA (the default is 2.0 mA), the maintenance fault
level from 1.5 mA to 3.5 mA (the default is 3 mA), and the overrange level from
21.0 mA to 22.0 mA (the default is 21.5 mA). The mA levels are adjusted in 0.5
mA increments.
41
SPM Flex Gas Detector
Network
The Ethernet mode can be set for either auto or manual. The Modbus TCP
menu can also be enabled or disabled (disabled is the default). To enable the
Ethernet connection:
1. Connect the Ethernet cable to the detector’s connector (see page 10).
2. Navigate to Main Menu > Set up > Network > Ethernet > Accept.
3. Select Mode > Auto > Accept > Accept. (Alternatively, instead of following
the Auto setup procedure, Enter Select Mode and scroll down to manually
enter the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default Gateway.)
4. To return to the Main menu, press Cancel twice.
The IP address can be found at Main menu > Review > Network. Enter this
number in any browser to open the detector’s dedicated webpage:

SPM Flex Gas Detector
Configuration Manager
Access to options for up to five internal flash slots can be chosen from the
Configuration Manager menu. Information can also be imported to or exported
from the detector via the USB option.
Test menu
The detector’s optical system can be checked from the Optics Verification screen
(using the verification card.) Alarms 1 and 2, maintenance faults, and instrument
faults can be tested from the Simulate menu. The alarms and faults can also be
reset from the Simulate menu. The Force Relays and Force 4-20 mA options are
also available through the Test menu.
Power off
Select “Power off” to shut off the detector. Selecting this option has the same
effect as pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds.
Duty cycle
This function allows the user to extend the duration of the tape advance interval.
This is useful in applications in which a background level of gas is expected in
normal operation. This interval can be configured for up to seventeen minutes.
When in monitor mode, if the detector reaches its maximum concentration for
that window, it will hold and display a countdown informing that it is waiting for
the duty cycle to expire.
The Duty Cycle menu can be found at Main menu > Set up > Monitoring > Duty
Cycle.
! CAUTION
The detector does not monitor gas levels while the duty cycle is counting
down.
44
SPM Flex Gas Detector
K-factor
K-factor is a feature that allows gases’ cross-sensitivity to be employed to
measure a target gas after calibrating the detector with a different gas. The
advantage for the user is that a small number of calibration gases can be used
to calibrate a detector for a wide range of target gases. The detector’s readings
are modified by the known relationship between the two. For example, a 5
ppm concentration of Gas A is seen by the detector as the same as a 5.8 ppm
concentration of Gas B. The K-factor is 1.2 (5.8 ÷ 5 = 1.16 = 1.2 when rounded
to one decimal place). Therefore, the detector with a Gas A Chemcassette
cartridge can be used to accurately detect Gas B by multiplying the Gas A
reading by 1.2.
The feature can also be used to compensate for diluted samples. For example,
when reading a gas that has been diluted 5:1, the K-factor feature will will
enable the detector to yield a reading of the undiluted gas.
K-factor conversions are performed by the detector automatically. The K-factor
is at Main menu > Set up > Monitoring > Gas.
If desired, an alternative name can be assigned to the K-factor target gas. This
would be useful if, for example, a certain dilution of a gas was being detected.
With K-factor enabled, navigate to Setup > Monitoring > Gas > K-factor > Alt.
gas name > Edit. A name with up to eight characters can be entered from that
screen. Save the name by pressing the Accept button.
Stale tape feature
When a Chemcassette cartridge is installed, the detector reads information
about it, including the Allowable Days After First Use from its RFID tag (see the
Detectable Gases table on page 60). By default, the detector will issue a Stale
Tape maintenance fault after that number of days. For situations in which the
cartridge will be used for a short period of time and then properly stored in its
Chemcassette cartridge bag, the user may turn off the maintenance fault. If
a cartridge is installed and in Monitor mode and then reaches the Stale Tape
date or the Expired Tape date, it will continue monitoring. (While the “CAUTION:
Chemcassette is XXX days past recommended use” screen is displayed, press
the Accept button to acknowledge the maintenance fault and continue using
the cartridge.) The cartridge can then be used past the Stale Tape date (but not
past the Expired Tape date). A history event is created for all expiration faults.

Authorized Honeywell preventive maintenance
In addition to the standard maintenance schedule performed by the end
user, it is recommended that units are periodically returned to Honeywell for
comprehensive inspection, cleaning, and systems tests. While not required,
users are encouraged to have this service performed every one to three years
depending on usage, site conditions, and gases monitored to help ensure
years of continued smooth operation.
To replace the end-of-the-line filter
Hold down the locking ring on the push fitting, as shown in Figure 26, to
release the filter. Gently press the new filter into the fitting until it locks. An
arrow is printed on the filter to show the gas’s proper direction of flow.

To clean the exterior surfaces
Exterior surfaces of the detector can be cleaned with a soft cloth moistened
with water or with 6% IPA alcohol wipes. Plug the detector’s ports when
washing the case.
To clean the tape-contact surfaces
Over prolonged monitoring periods, the chemical components of some
Chemcassette cartridges can be deposited on the detector’s tape transport
surfaces. When replaced by a cartridge with a different target gas, these
deposits may cause stains on the Chemcassette tape that are falsely
interpreted as gas concentrations. This chemical incompatibility has been
particularly noted in the combinatons in the following chart.

To prevent these false readings, whenever changing a Chemcassette
cartridge to one of a different gas family, thoroughly clean all of the detector’s
tape transport surfaces (the entire area of the optics gate) with methanol or
6% IPA alcohol using cotton swabs or a similar non-abrasive cloth3.
Storing the detector
When storing the detector with the power adaptor plugged in, the rocker
switch can be left in the on position; the battery will continue charging. The
detector can also be charged with the rocker switch off.
When storing the detector without being plugged into the power adaptor, turn
the rocker switch off. This will minimize the power. This is the recommended
setting for long-term storage or for transporting the detector. Charge the
detector at least four hours every three months.
Recycling
At the end of its usable life, return the detector to Honeywell Analytics for
recycling.
Storing Chemcassette® cartridges
Follow the instructions on the cartridge label for acceptable storage
temperatures and expiration dates.

Outside of RH range:
3 Tends to have lower response at higher humidities.
4 Tends to increase sensitivity at higher humidities (due to the chemistry of the reaction).
5 Tends to under-report at higher humidities (typically >75% RH) due to the gas characteristics to adhere or decompose on contact with water/moisture. The response seems to be lower but the actual gas concentration under these high humidity conditions will be lower than
expected.
6 Tends to under-report in dry conditions (<25-30% RH).

9 Prolonged exposure to high levels of HBr (2xTLV or above) can condense in the system and may require purging with dry gas.
10 For information about the expiration date of the Chemcassette, refer to the Review > Chemcassette section on page 39.
11 The number of days from the installation date that the Chemcassette cartridge can be used. When the allowable-days limit is reached, or if the absolute expiration date (printed on cartridge) is reached, the detector will issue an Expired Chemcassette Cartridge fault. The type of
expiration is found in the event history data field for the fault (either 1 [stale] or 2 [expired]). Replace the cartridge when this fault is issued. The only exception is if the cartridge was used only briefly and then removed from the detector and properly stored in the sealed bag at the
recommended temperature. In this case, the cartridge can be used past the stale-tape date (but not past the absolute expiration date) by clearing the stale-tape fault before going into monitor mode. Advance the tape manually about five inches before installing the cartridge and
entering monitor mode.

and a power cord appropriate for the region.
2 Includes an Ethernet connector, a power connector, a handle accessory kit, a clean-room-safe shoulder strap, a user manual on CD, a
printed quick start guide, and a power adaptor with a plug and cable appropriate for the region. (The shoulder strap must be properly
laundered and stored for clean room use.)
3 Use an external filter to protect the tubing from contamination (the particulate filter for non-corrosive gases, the corrosive filter for
corrosive gases). For multiple-gas applications or if the correct filter is not known, use the corrosive filter. Replace the filter every 3
months. Refer to the Detectable Gases table on page 60 for information on specific gases. Note that filters are not used with diisocyanates, hydrazine, ozone, or hydrogen peroxide so regular maintenance cleaning is especially important for detectors exposed to those
gases.
