Leading the Way in the Commercial FGFD Safety


The HVAC industry presents a wide variety of gas detection needs, from boiler rooms, to engineering and research labs, transportation maintenance facilities to a number of other industrial building and facility applications. To enable personnel to work safely within these environments, monitoring of toxic gases, oxygen enrichment and deficiency and combustible gases is crucial.

Top protection for the most important part of your building.

A building’s mechanical room is the hub of its heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. This can include central utility plants, boiler and chiller rooms, mechanical and electrical rooms and fuel rooms. The equipment within these rooms has the potential to leak harmful combustible or toxic gases, including costly and environmentally harmful refrigerant gases.

Chillgard® 5000 Refrigerant Leak Monitor

The Chillgard® 5000 Refrigerant Leak Monitor provides the earliest level of detection of costly refrigerant gas leaks in mechanical equipment rooms. Sampling system with patented photoacoustic infrared (PAIR) technology detects leaks as low as 1 part per million (ppm). Intuitive, touchscreen user interface makes it easy to operate. Predictive maintenance and diagnostics keep you operational.

Prevent overheating and help protect your data facility.

Refrigeration in data centers is pivotal in preventing the overheating of electrical equipment. Effective refrigerant leak detection can help ensure efficient cooling by minimizing leaks, protecting valuable equipment and data.

Control and ventilation of hazardous gases is your first defense.

In enclosed areas such as parking garages, potentially lethal concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) can build up quickly—before exposed individuals have any indication of danger. The issue is not whether these gases reach hazardous concentrations, but rather how to control and ventilate gas buildup when it occurs.

PrimaX® P Gas Transmitter

Designed to detect gases indoors or outdoors, our PrimaX P Gas Transmitter measures oxygen and toxic and combustible gases. The flameproof transmitter is housed in a powder-coated aluminum enclosure that will protect it in extremely dangerous conditions. The unit also features a large, easy-to-read LCD screen and three LED status indicators for up-to-the-second reporting. The transmitter attaches to an integral mounting plate for easy installation, and it can be easily calibrated using the built-in keypad. It uses a 4-20 mA output signal to transmit its data, and it can also be configured to use HART digital communication. With easily replaced plug-in sensors, the PrimaX P transmitter is suitable for laboratories, chemical plants, power plants and several other industry settings.

Cold storage isn’t without combustion risks.

Ammonia (NH3) is commonly used as a refrigerant in large industrial cold storage facilities. Ammonia leak detection systems can be installed to help mitigate the risks of toxicity and explosion.

SUPREMATouch Controller

The SUPREMATouch has been enhanced with several new features which makes it outstanding in its class. Added to the popular large colour touchscreen display, a new title-based menu structure has been added to optimize intuitive operation. The SUPREMATouch can be used with a wide range of detectors for combustible gas, toxic gas and oxygen. Output options include relays and 4-20mA outputs.

Remote racks can be connected (satellite structure), which expands control systems and reduces cabling costs. Interfacing to external systems is provided by using Modbus or Profibus. The SUPREMATouch has been certified according to ATEX and is suitable for virtually any safety related application including redundant systems with up to a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 rating (EN 61508).

The intuitive SUPREMA Manager Software is intended for configuration, parameterization and calibration of the SUPREMATouch Fire and Gas Controller. It offers the option to create detailed and clearly laid out reports to support documentation and supports all the new features of the SUPREMATouch.

Note: This is a custom product. Please consult your local MSA distributor or contact MSA Customer Service for configuration details.

Enhance the safety of all of your occupants.

Building systems that employ Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems have long refrigerant piping runs that have the potential to leak into occupied space if not properly monitored.

Chillgard® VRF Refrigerant Leak Detector

MSA Chillgard VRF Refrigerant Leak Detector is the first industry detector for Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems (VRF) with integrated BACnet capability. Therefore, it can be directly connected with any Building Management Systems (BMS). MSA applies its proven Photoacoustic infrared sensing technology that provides a stable zero baseline, minimizes cross-sensitivities and offers low cost of ownership through minimum maintenance required.
