Model 950-ASH


The Model 950-ASH is used for the detection of hydrocarbons, accelerants, petroleum volatiles, and various gases. This instrument is battery powered and designed to be rugged. The 950-ASH is used as a general purpose hydrocarbon gas detector for applications including gas leak detection, landfill outgassing, leaking storage tanks and many others. Model 950-ASH features an array of illuminating ultraviolet and white LEDs to assist the investigator in locating accelerants or other evidence in situations where visibility is low and detection areas become visibly difficult. Other beneficial features include a mute function to silence the audible detection sounds for discreet investigation and a purge feature for rapid sensor recovery from encountering high concentrations. Model 950-ASH Features:
  • Audible sounds and visual display indication of hydrocarbons
  • Ruggedly constructed, rechargeable battery powered
  • Use in Higher Sensitivity mode to locate trace amounts and in Lower Sensitivity mode to pinpoint the source in areas of high concentration
  • Ability to detect the presence of trace levels of hydrocarbon accelerants and combustible gases
  • Telescoping probe allowing up to a 40+ inch extended reach
  • UV LEDs for visible fluorescence and white LEDs for improved general visibility
A partial list of common hydrocarbons and accelerants that can be detected by the Model 950-ASH includes, but is not limited to: Fuels including: Kerosene, Gasoline and Diesel. Hydrocarbons and their derivatives such as – Methane, Ethane, Propane, Butane, Pentane, Hexane, Heptane, Octane, Propylene, Benzene, Toulene, Xylene, Ethylene Oxide. Model 950-ASH Specifications:
