A gas detector locates a variety of gases like combustible and explosive gas leaks from petrol or gasoline, methane, butane, sewer gas, and other flammable gases that could cause serious harm to the surrounding environment and the people within that environment. It is a key piece of equipment when working with gas line installation and general maintenance and repair to ensure the safety of any individuals at risk when working in environments where any type of gas is present.
These types of gas detection units can be used in a wide range of environments like:
• Oil production
• Smelting
• Chemical
• Municipal
• Sewage treatment
• Electricity
• Coal gas
• Mining
• Tunnel construction
• Fire
• Storage
• Paper
• Pharmaceutical
• Brewing

And can be used to specifically detect, locate and monitor gas leaks in:
• Gas lines and pipes
• Propane gas filling station
• Fuel in marine holds
• Exhaust and fuel leaks
• Heat Exchange Leaks
• Dangerous life and work
• Check the manholes for safety

How long do Gas Detectors and their sensors last?

The gas detection unit can last a lifetime if looked after, just like any test and measurement tool. Generally, gas detector sensors can last anything from 2-3 years in perfect conditions. It is always wise to check the battery of the unit regularly and if you have a gas detector that can have the sensor replaced, that this is also done as part of its maintenance.

What gases does this detect?

This gas detector can detect combustible or flammable gases like methane, butane, ammonia, carbon dioxide, propane and many more.
