UltraRAE 3000

Orderable Items UltraRAE 3000 is the most advanced compound-specific monitor with PID extended range. UltraRAE 3000 is ideal for use in entry pre-screening during refinery, plant maintenance, hazardous material response, marine spill response, and refinery downstream monitoring applications.


  • Fast Response

  • Dual detection mode for total benzene — 60-second snapshot and 15-minute STEL measurement

  • Instant tube breakthrough visibility

  • Integrated correction factors for > 200 compounds

  • Field-interchangeable battery pack

  • No annual factory calibration required




A quick spot-check monitor, the UltraRAE is used by occupational health, safety, and environmental personnel for tank entry pre-screening during refinery and plant maintenance, hazardous material response, marine spill response, and refinery downstream monitoring. UltraRAE combines a separation tube and photoionization detector (PID) to eliminate the problems associated with colorimetric tubes and gas chromatographs. Easy to use, simply insert a RAE-Sep™ tube for a total vapor reading or a specific compound reading.

Free training video provided with all RAE instruments. UltraRAE Kits and RAE-Sep tubes and also available for butadiene and methylene chloride.
Monitors require calibration using appropriate calibration gas(es) and regulator sold separately.

IP and UV Lamps
All elements and chemicals can be ionized but differ in the amount of energy required to break them into ions. The term Ionization Potential (IP) refers to the energy required to displace an electron and ionize a compound. IP is measured in electron volts (eV) and can be determined by referencing the Chemical and Physical Properties listed for each chemical in the NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards or the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. Light energy emitted by a UV lamp is also measured in eV. If the IP of a compound is less than the eV output of a PID lamp, the sample will be ionized (e.g., benzene with an IP of 9.24 eV can be ionized by a 9.8 eV lamp). Compounds with a higher IP such as acetic acid (10.66 eV) can only be ionized by an 11.7 eV lamp. Some compounds such as carbon monoxide (IP 14.01 eV) cannot be ionized by a PID lamp.

ProRAE Suite
ProRAE Suite datalogging software for Windows provides you with the option of downloading data from your detection instrument to a PC for management, importing into spreadsheet software, storage, or reporting. ProRAE Suite software is provided with each datalogging instrument and is compatible with Windows 95, 98, 2000, and XP.
