Portable Gas Detection

Every different application requires a slightly different portable gas detection system, precisely tailored to the measurement task.  The instruments must be able to reliably detect a wide range of hazardous substances under changing work conditions.  In general, there are four different portable gas detector applications:

  • Personal monitoring: Worn directly on the clothes, the instrument warns the wearer of gas-related risks in their immediate work area.  Continuous detection devices for single or multiple gases are suitable for personal monitoring.
  • Area monitoring: Safeguarding an area where workers are active requires a device that is centrally positioned so it can monitor the entire work area.  Continuous measurement devices for multiple gases are preferred.
  • Confined space entry: Before entering, a measurement needs to be taken to detect the presence of hazardous substances.  Multiple gas detectors with corresponding pumps and accessories are usually used.
  • Leak detection: Wherever gases and liquids are stored or transported runs the risk of a leak.  Devices used here must have a rapid response time to detect even the slightest changes in concentration.
