Imagine working in an environment where the hazards are toxic and extremely flammable. What makes this even more dangerous is that it’s invisible and odorless.
Gas leak detection methods became a concern after the effects of harmful gases on human health were discovered. Exposure through inhalation, can cause health problems which can harm every major organ.
Early gas detection methods use Canaries where they are put inside cages and taken deep down into the mines. But we’ve come a long way since then. Now gas detection methods are more precise and less harmful to animals.
Originally, detectors were produced to detect a single gas. Modern units may detect several toxic or combustible gases, or even a combination.
Form factors: Intrinsically Safe Portable and Fixed gas detectors.
We’d like to direct your attention to Portable Gas detectors – Portable detectors are used to monitor the atmosphere around personnel and are either hand-held or worn on clothing or on a belt/harness. These gas detectors are usually battery operated. They transmit warnings via audible and visible signals, such as alarms and flashing lights, when dangerous levels of gas vapors are detected.
If you are looking for portable Gas Detectors, you are probably looking for real-time reading of up to four gases simultaneously, one button operation and calibration, easy to read LCD display, audible and visual alarms, optional sample draw pump, rugged and compact.
