Industrial Scientific Corporation - An Overview
Industrial Scientific designs, manufactures and
markets portable instruments for detecting, measuring and monitoring hazardous gases to
protect and preserve human life.
The company started as the Research Division of National Mine Service Company (NMS). In
1976, the division developed and introduced an instrument for the detection of methane
gas, which was approved by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, and followed with
the development of instruments for the detection of other combustible hydrocarbon gases.
In 1985 NMS sold the division, and Industrial Scientific Corporation began independent
operations on January 25, 1985.
With continuous investments in research and engineering design, the instrument family grew
to include patented technologies and state-of-the-art designs. Industrial Scientific
became the name for the most rugged and dependable gas instrumentation on the market.
On June 30, 1993, the company had its initial public stock offering. Industrial Scientific
is a Pennsylvania corporation and trades on NASDAQ under the symbol ISCX. In 1994
Industrial Scientific was the first industry manufacturer to be certified under the
Quality Standards of ISO9001. This certification is a symbol of Industrial
Scientifics continuing pledge to provide the highest quality life-protection

MDU420 Dual-Range Methane Monitor
- Detects Concentrations of Methane Gas from 0 to 100% by
- Auto Ranging from % of LEL to % of Volume of Gas
- Informs the User when Calibration is Required
- 5-year Sensor Warranty
- Optional Data Logging
- Compact and Lightweight
Industrial Scientific's MDU420 Dual-Range Methane
Monitor delivers the reliability of infrared sensor technology with the convenience of a
compact-sized, easy-to-carry instrument. Using patented dual-range infrared technology,
the MDU420 Methane Monitor does the job of two gas monitors: detecting both low-and
high-levels of methane gas, from 0 to 100% of volume. This flexibility makes it the one
instrument to fit almost any application where methane must be monitored. Whether reading
methane levels in ambient air or inserting a probe directly into a gas stream, the MDU420
delivers a full range of reliable performance. The patented sensor carries a five-year
warranty and requires only infrequent calibration. (The MDU420 will even tell you when
it's time to calibrate.
Most important, the MDU420 features the ruggedness and
dependability you've come to expect from Industrial Scientific ... as well as our lifetime
- Infrared Technology Provides Long Sensor Life, Less Frequent
- Compact and Lightweight, Easy to Use
Industrial Scientific's MDU420 utilizes patented infrared sensor
technology to detect the presence of methane gas at any level. Infrared sensors are
extremely accurate and stable, leading to the MDU420's 5-year warranty on the sensor. The
infrared sensor is capable of detecting methane gas in concentrations from within the LEL
to up to 100% of volume.
The accuracy and dependability of the infrared sensor means the
instrument can operate for longer periods of time without needing calibration. When it's
time to calibrate, the instrument will alert the user with a message on its LCD display.
It's simple: The user doesn't need to calibrate the instrument until the instrument says
that it's time.
