Crowcon's Tetra:3 carbon dioxide wins Innovation Award

20 January 2009

Crowcon's Tetra:3 CO2 portable multi-gas detector has won the Safety Innovation “Top Selection” Award at the Security and Safety Awards held at the Sicurtech 2008 Expo in Italy. Of the many entries for the Safety Awards, the Tetra:3 CO2 was chosen by respected independent judges from seven finalists for the Innovation Award.

“We are delighted that the innovative design and functionality of the Tetra:3 CO2 has been recognised with this Award,” said Crowcon’s Marketing Manager Tim Wilkes. "The product was introduced in response to customer requests for a compact, multi-gas monitor that offered protection from carbon dioxide alongside that of other gases. It is based on the popular Tetra:3 platform, acknowledged as one of the most easy to use products on the market."

Like the standard Tetra:3, the new CO2 variant is designed for use in demanding industrial environments, particularly where wet conditions might be experienced, and with its large, top display and simple, single button operation, requires minimal user training. Initial customers have included many breweries and wineries, where the recognition of carbon dioxide as a toxic threat rather than just a potential asphyxiant is growing. However, the company is also receiving enquiries from other users in areas at risk from toxic gases.

Now in its second year, the Security and Safety Awards recognises products that demonstrate excellence in the fields of safety and security. The Safety Innovation Award considers features such as functionality, performance and technology and market standards. The jury of six leading scientists and industrialists was chaired by Professor Oliviero Tronconi from the Politecnico di Milano.
