In a first approach gas detection instruments are products of safety technology and are used preferably to protect workers and to ensure plant safety. Gas detection systems are dedicated to detect dangerous gas concentrations, to trigger alarms and – as far as possible – to activate counter measures, before it can come to a hazardous situation for employees, assets and environment.
Basically, there are three categories of risk:
- Ex – Risk of explosion by flammable gases
- Ox – Oxygen
Risk of asphyxiation by oxygen displacement
Risk of increase of flammability by oxygen enrichment
- Tox – Risk of poisoning by toxic gases
Workers around the world, who face potentially dangerous situations, deserve the best gas detector instruments available. Our dedication to advanced sensor technology and product durability not only helps to provide high level safety, but delivers a reduced total cost of ownership.
