RAE Systems UltraRAE 3000 Benzene PID Monitor


  • Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) measurement 0 to 10,000 ppm (in VOC mode)
  • Benzene and Butadiene measurement 10 ppb to 200 ppm (in Tube mode with 9.8 eV Lamp)
  • Built-in humidity sensor for accurate readings
  • Integrated sampling pump 400 cc/min, sample from 100' away.

The UltraRAE 3000 is the most advanced compound-specific monitor on the market and one of the few monitors that deliver accurate measurement of benzene from 10 ppb to 200 ppm and other VOCs up to 10,000 ppm.

A 60-second response for a benzene measurement snapshot and a unique 15-minute benzene STEL measurement provide excellent versatility for entry pre-screening, marine spill response, and refinery down-stream monitoring.

Optional built-in Mesh Radio enables real-time monitoring of instrument readings wirelessly. Another option is Bluetooth, which can relay readings and alarm status up to 2 miles to a RAELink 3 wireless transmitter.
