Improve safety and productivity with the most flexible, user friendly tape based gas detector for low level toxics, the SPM Flex by Honeywell Analytics. The SPM Flex, the next evolution of the SPM & TLD gas detectors with Chemcassette tape technology, is capable of working as both a fixed and a portable unit. the monitor detects the ultrasensitive gases inherent in your operations, including:
- Mineral acids
The SPM Flex is a highly automated single point monitor that is intuitive, easy to use and designed to the unique needs of your operation.
- The Honeywell SPM Flex is easy to choose the target gas, just turn the Flex on, snap in the proper Chemcassette tape and use the intuitive LCD menu to select the gas from the list. Need to monitor for a gas in a different family? Just swap out the Chemcassette tape and choose the new gas. No ChemKeys required.
- The SPM Flex has a quick start up for emergency response. It is running in under 2 minutes – so your response team can quickly gear up and go to the site.
- The SPM Flex is easy to use with protective equipment or hazmat gear. Purpose built with the user experience in mind, the SPM Flex is easy to carry operate and read – even when you are wearing a hazmat suit or other protective gear. The monitor has large, chunky buttons that are easy to use. And when you carry the SPM Flex, the display faces up so it’s easy to read.
- The SPM Flex is capable of working as both a fixed and a portable unit, an important addition to your toxic gas monitoring system. Use it to investigate suspected leaks, or, if you have a monitoring point that is out of service, use the SPM Flex to replace it – with the option to plug it in or use the long lasting battery.
- The SPM Flex is visible at a distance. Thanks to a crisp display and a color coded LED bar on top of the SPM Flex, you can see alarm status, gas concentration and other data easily from a distance. So even if you are not right next to your SPM Flex, you always know the health of your unit and the safety of your area.
- The SPM Flex offers remote viewing through the web. Your visibility even extends to other rooms and buildings, thanks to the unit’s web capabilities. Simply plug an Ethernet cable into the SPM Flex, and use the easy to read web interface to see the status of the unit – no matter where you are.
- The SPM Flex stands up to harsh conditions. Working in the sun and rain, around blasts of steam, or other challenging environmental conditions? The SPM Flex goes where you do, standing up to changes in temperature and humidity without compromising accuracy. It also works well in cleanrooms, thanks to its Teflon coating that does not attract dust. And if it is every exposed to toxic gas or caustic liquid, just hose it down or use a decontamination wipe.
- With the SPM Flex, you can rest assured that every monitoring moment is being recorded – and ready for analysis whenever you need it. Whether you want to report a gas incident or investigate a trend, the monitor keeps up to a three month history of gas concentrations, alarms, tape changes and other factors. Plus, you have the option to view this data through a web server, or you can easily download it to a USB drive.
- Need to change the detection limit for a gas? Alter the parameters for latching alarms? Just adjust your settings with the intuitive menu – then use the USB port to download and transfer them to other units. So it is a snap to deploy multiple monitors with a consistent configuration.
- The SPM Flex has easily serviceable parts and a reliable battery, so you can count on long-lasting portable use – and an affordable cost of ownership. Even more, if the SPM Flex is plugged in and you lose power, the internal battery kicks in as backup so the unit keeps monitoring.

What is a Chemcassette™?
The Chemcassette is the colorimetric based sensor used by your SPM Flex gas monitoring systems to detect and measure toxic gases. It consists of a special substrate that been coated with proprietary chemical formulations that produce a color reaction in dry form when exposed to a specific gas or family of gases. Chemcassettes are extremely sensitive and specific to the gas or gases they are designed to detect. As a result, they are a fast, accurate, virtually interference free detection method.
Each step of the Chemcassette production process is carefully controlled to assure that the Chemcassette will perform as intended in your Flex gas detector. Each and every Chemcassette batch is dynamically tested according to NIOSH methodologies with a gas it is designed to detect and the results are carefully documented. Our ISO 9001 quality control standards are strict enough to meet rigorous US Nuclear Regulatory Commission audit requirements. Each step in the manufacturing and testing process is fully documented and traceable to NIST stand
