Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Single Gas Detector
Keeping Workers Safe and You Compliant
Industrial sites in the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Offshore sectors can be volatile places if the right safety measures are not in place. You need reliable and ATEX certified gas detectors to keep the workforce safe.
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) may desensitize and render the body unconscious in no time at high concentrations, therefore, reliable personal monitoring equipment is crucial.
ARA H2S portable alarm is a low cost, wearable clip monitor for the detection of dangerous levels of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S). The detector alerts workers when gas concentrations exceed set safety levels.
The ARA H2S clip monitor operates for 24 months maintenance-free, with continuous operation. The 36-month model provides you with more life for a competitive low-cost price by simply slipping the detector into hibernation mode when you’re not using it to extend its service life. This instrument is ideal for contractors or consultants who only visit site on occasion.
The H2S sensor is designed to withstand the harshest industrial working conditions. Typical applications include:
- Site wide safety
- Confined space entry
- Plant shutdown processes
- First response safety
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Gas Detector
Designed with practical applications in mind, the ARA Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) unit weighs just 3.25 oz and is equipped with a sturdy clip for attaching to workwear positioned close to the breathing zone. At only 8.7cm in length, it does not impede worker movement and is suitable for use in confined space working, such as maintenance to pipes or tankers. As an intrinsically safe model, users can be assured they’re safe in all environments due to the device’s three-signal system of a flashing light, audible alarm, and vibration, alerting the wearer of dangerous exposure levels.
The ARA Hydrogen Sulfide gas detector has a daily self-test feature that tests the audio, visual and vibration alarms, giving you confidence that your workers are protected.
