REED Gas Leak Detector: instrument description
The R-9400 is a Reed Combustible Gas Detector extremely sensitive with fast 2 seconds response time to a range a wide variety of gases, including Propane, Butane ,Natural Gas, Methane, Acetone, Alcohol, Gasoline ,Ammonia, Steam, Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen Sulfide, Smoke, Industrial Solvents, Jet Fuel, Lacquer Thinner, Naphtha. The Reed R-9400 Gas Leak Detector safety operates in various spaces including tanks, pits, vessels and storage bin and can be utilized to measure the leaks from tanks and pipe lines.
The Reed R-9400 Gas Detector comes with an audible alarm and visual indicator to easily localize the location of gas leak. For maximum flexibility and safety utilization, the Reed R-9400’s sensor probe is flexible and has 400mm (15.5”) length.

How to use Gas Leak Detector (GD-3300)
The READY light is glowing right after you switched on the Combustible Gas Leak Detector by sliding the ON/OFF button in fresh air. The instrument runs through a one-minute warm-up and self-zeroing sequence. The Reed GD-3300’s alarm may be very loud without contact with any gas, that is caused the initial preset sensitivity.
Rate (Sensitivity) Adjustment
You should conduct a quick functional test before using the instrument and adjust the tick rate to non-alarm level. Then, simply expose the sensor to a known leak, ( you can use a cigarette lighter fpr this test). After the initial warm-up, the instrument can be used to detect combustible gases. When the sensor in the probe tip detects a combustible gas, the tick rate will increase and the instrument sounds a warbling tone while the ALARM light. As the concentration of gas increases, so does the tick rate.
Adjusting the Tick Rate (Sensitivity)
When the GD-3300’s sensor is getting close to a gas leak you will know this by the tick rate. You can control the tick rate using the rotary wheel in the center of the instrument. For doing this just move the wheel clockwise to increase the frequency or counter-clockwise to decrease the frequency.
