CI 21 Detector


GfG CI 21 Fixed Transmitter

GfG Instrumentation Low Maintenance Ammonia Detection

The charge carrier injection (CI 21) sensor is a progressive development to improve upon current ammonia refrigeration detection methods. With CI 21 technology sensor life is no longer limited to ammonia exposure levels. This reduces replacement costs associated with electrochemical sensors.

Charge carrier injection technology also eliminates false alarms frequently associated with metal oxide sensing (MOS). These, along with other features, provide reliable, cost effective, long term safety.

The CI 21 transmitter is an advanced development to which all other ammonia transmitters will be compared.

  • Stable long life charge carrier injection sensor
  • Sensor is unaffected by exposure to high concentrations of ammonia gas
  • Low temperature operation to -40oF
  • Compact Design
  • Low cross-sensitivity
  • Eliminates costly false alarms
  • Low cost of ownership
  • 3 year sensor life (typical)
  • Superior long term stability (less frequent calibration required)
Temperature influence
Utilizing a controlled sensor voltage, the CI 21 maintains a constant internal temperature, allowing accurate readings without additional heating components.
Graph 1 compares the temperature behaviors of metal oxide (MOS) and electrochemical sensors with the CI 21. The alarm threshold is set at 200 ppm, and each of the sensors is calibrated to 200 ppm NH3 at 25ºC (77ºF). At lower temperatures, the response of the CI 21 is extremely accurate, whereas the MOS and electrochemical sensors drift considerably.
If calibration is performed at lower temperatures, the identification lines shift to a higher ppm indication. As temperatures increase, the CI 21 operates with the same reliability, whereas the MOS and electrochemical sensors indicate alarm conditions due to the higher slope of their indication lines.
Humidity influence
Fluctuating humidity levels are no longer an issue with the CI 21. MOS sensors require a minimum humidity level in order to respond to leaks of ammonia, while the CI 21 does not!
Low humidity is a typical condition of refrigerated areas due to lower temperatures. With the CI 21, a direct calibration with ammonia test gas can be accomplished with low humidity. As shown in graph 2, the influence of humidity on the CI 21 is considerably less than MOS sensors.
Sensor selectivity
MOS sensors typically interfere with other gases and are rarely specific. Cross interferences occur with alcohol, cleaning detergents, water, carbon monoxide, and many other substances. Interfering alarms become a nuisance that can lead to work stoppage and expensive shut downs.
** Note: The External Sensor comes complete with a 6-1/2' cable, to allow the ammonia sensor to be remote mounted.

5 of 5 Long lasting May 12, 2015
Reviewer: Sean Wheelhouse from Chicago, IL  
This review is long time over due.  We purchased two of these monitors a few years back on the recommendation of the customer service person.  We were hesitant about the life of this monitor, but we decided to try it anyways.  Boy are we surprised, how long these monitors run.  To this date we still have NO issues!
