MiniRAE 3000


If you are looking for the most advanced handheld photoionisation detector on the market, look no further than the MiniRAE 3000 by RAE Systems. This photoionisation detector (PID) offers an extended range of 0 to 15,000 parts per million (ppm), which makes it ideal for a number of applications (including industrial hygiene, leaks and HazMat detection).

PIDs (like the MiniRAE 3000) provide very fast-response and sensitivity at extremely low concentrations of compounds, such as jet fuel, gasoline and solvents. This alerts workers to the threat from gases that are an immediate threat to life, in addition to toxic vapours that can have long-term effects.

Active Environmental Solutions MiniRAE 3000 prices are as competitive as they are affordable. The internal modem allows for real-time data transmission via a base controller that can be placed a distance away from the detector.
