Why is a latest-generation natural gas detector required?


natural gas detector

The list of industries that use new gas detectors is just about as long as the list of gas detection technologies, thanks to incredible and innovative advances in the latest generation of unprecedentedly accessible devices.  Once upon a time, a fixed gas detection program was hugely complex and even more expensive, but the proliferation of wearable, affordable, highly sophisticated gas detector tech has changed everything - for the better. 

 Businesses, organizations, and empowered individuals can now devise multifaceted gas detection routines to monitor, control, and analyze an impressive range of toxic and harmful, noxious and explosive gases and asphyxiants, ensuring regulatory compliance and safer workplaces than ever.

Some of the industries best positioned to benefit are:

Computing: In semiconductor fabrication alone, harmful gases including methane, carbon monoxide, and phosphine are all involved in the manufacturing process.

Wastewater: Add hydrogen sulfide to that list for wastewater facilities, which is the number 1 cause of death for workers around sewage treatment.

Oil & gas: No matter where an oil/gas business sits in the complex supply chain, multiple gases are subject to fire and explosion - and the regulatory environment is intense.

Chemicals: Those who work around chemicals commonly report years of the ongoing eye, nose, and throat irritation, as well as nausea and even the risk of convulsion or worse.  But even many non-toxic gases used in chemical manufacturers can cause problems due to the displacement of oxygen.

Mining: Fixed gas monitoring stations are commonplace throughout the mining industry, but workers now have access to a smart range of wearable gas detector tech that can be as sophisticated - or more sophisticated - than anything the industry has previously seen in terms of toxic gas and oxygen monitoring.

Does your workplace need an upgrade for its gas detection systems?  If you think your existing devices don't need replacing just yet, there are at least 4 major reasons why your monitoring system may not be up to scratch:

1. Environmental

Many legacy gas detectors are highly disturbed by dust and moisture, due to sensors and sampling lines that are too easily blocked or affected.

2. Damage

Wearable or portable gas detectors have made major advances in impact resistance.

3. Gas Exposure

Particularly in heavy gas or fume-rich environments, some gas detectors see their highly-sensitive calibration go out of whack, and not even feature on-board fault detection capability.

4. Temperature

Industries needing gas monitoring the most are also highly likely to feature workplaces or spaces that are very hot or very cold, which affects accuracy.

While there is no higher priority than worker and workplace safety, businesses and industries exposed to the risk of bad gas monitoring are risking poor productivity, downtime, asset and equipment damage (due to fire/explosion), regulatory compliance, reputational cost issues, and more.

  If your workplace, workers, or brand could benefit from a gas detector upgrade or rethink, the latest generation of technology is unprecedentedly accurate, reliable, useable, and affordable, so consult with an expert and protect your business today.
