The best gas leakage detection system can result in lives saved in the unfortunate event that a dangerous gas escapes containment, as many dangerous gases are colorless, odorless, and undetectable to the human senses without the help of sensitive instruments. When it comes to protecting those who share your workplace, a gas leakage detection system is a literal lifesaver.
Gas detection technology has come a long way from a canary in a cage or a flame lamp. Today’s gas detectors not only have better sensing technology but are equipped with wireless technology that will help the workforce of the future remain safe.
Now, gas detectors may come in a variety of types, styles, shapes, and sizes, but they all share a common purpose. That purpose is that they save lives by providing an early warning when noxious gases are present or when they reach thresholds that put worker safety in jeopardy.
Types of Gas Detection Devices
We can supply personal gas monitors, single & multi-gas monitors, wireless portable area monitors, man-down alarms, and gas detector rentals. The Del Rio Company supplies these high-quality gas detection instruments from industry leaders, such as Industrial Scientific.
Portable monitors are designed to protect personnel who may be working in a certain area. People are portable so it makes sense that this detection device is best to use to detect gas around individuals while they’re on the job. They can also detect potentially hazardous gasses upon entering and exiting different spaces.
Fixed detectors are generally put in places primarily to protect the facility, to detect catastrophic leaks, or to be an early warning of gases leaking from a system. By protecting the facility, they are also protecting the lives of the people working in the facility. These devices are also generally more automated.
If you work in an industry in which inhalation, combustion, and asphyxiation hazards occur regularly, you should consider employing a gas detection system in your workspace to keep employees safe. We can help you find the right gas detector for your needs. Contact us to talk about how we can supply specific business solutions for your project.
