Multitec 560

Combined gas warning and measuring device for monitoring processes and personal safety at landfill sites, sewage treatment facilities and biogas plants

The Multitec® 560 is a combined gas warning and measuring device. When used as a gas warning instrument it reliably and automatically detects gases which are toxic and hazardous to humans. When used as a gas measuring device it records and documents the composition of biological process gases.

The intelligent operator guidance optimally supports the user in his work. For example, the device prevents switching between measuring ranges at critical gas concentrations, thus ensuring maximum safety – for humans and equipment.


The Multitec® 560 is ideal for the preventative inspection of the atmosphere in work areas (e.g. engine pits, silage tanks, shaft constructions). It reliably detects explosive and toxic gases to ensure safety at work at all times. 

It is essential to record and analyse the gas composition and optimise processes for the profit-oriented production of biogas. The Multitec® 560 is perfect for these tasks as it uses high-quality infrared measuring technology.
