Suitable for a range of industrial applications, toxic gas detectors can prove vital for personal safety, in particular for those working in volatile environments. The use of a gas monitoring instrument, with appropriate action taken if dangerous levels of gases are detected, can help to prevent an explosion or can help to prevent worker injury or exposure to toxic gases

Helping You Select the Right Gas Detection Instrument For Your Industry.

Suitable for a range of industrial applications, toxic gas detectors can prove vital for personal safety, in particular for those working in volatile environments.

Changing legislation and regulatory compliance, combined with evolving insurance pre-requisites are making the use of gas detectors more prevalent in many industries. The use of a gas monitoring instrument, with appropriate action taken if dangerous levels of gases are detected, can help to prevent an explosion or can help to prevent worker injury or exposure to toxic gases.

Portable and Personal Gas Detectorsgas-detection-instrument-portable-personal

Portable and Personal gas detectors are classed as a type of
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), designed to keep personnel
safe from gas hazards and allow mobile testing of locations before they are entered. These small devices are essential in many areas where gas hazards could occur, because they are the only means of monitoring an operator’s breathing zone continuously, whilst stationary and moving.

Fixed Gas Detectorsgas-detection-instrument-fixed

Fixed detectors are generally installed to protect the facility, to detect catastrophic leaks or to be an early warning of gases leaking from a system. In process operations, a fixed gas detector is used to sense a leak and alert the plant manager of the condition. Fixed gas detectors provide personnel protection, though it cannot move with the operator, personal gas detectors are designed however to monitor an operator’s individual breathing zone.

Semi Portable Gas Detectorsgas-detection-instrument-semi-portable

Semi Portable Gas Detectors meet the diverse requirements for gas detection industries and are generally used where a temporary or contractual method of detection is required for a specific project or incident.

Many sites employ a mix of fixed, personal, and portable gas detection instruments, though the instruments can be used on their own.
