What is a 10+ year sensor? How does it compare to other types of sensors?

Most gas detection companies use oxygen sensors with an electrochemical sensor or fuel cell. These sensors are built to operate for 1 to 2 years and are designed to be thrown away at the end of their lifespan. In fact, fuel cells have a shelf life. These products do not offer long-term solutions for companies.

In contrast, PureAire uses a proprietary zirconium sensor, which is a solid-electrolyte based technology that is designed to last for 10 years with no replacement. Zirconium sensors use direct electrical current rather than battery technology, which is how electrochemical sensors operate.

This unique construction makes PureAire’s sensors the most accurate, reliable and long-lasting products on the market.
