What is a gas detector?

A gas detector is an instrument used to prevent toxic gas exposure by providing advanced warning of developing hazards that can be caused as a result of gas leaks, fires or chemical spillage. Gas detectors are usually fitted in areas where machinery is used which employs gas to function, or may possibly generate gas in the event of malfunction or accidental damage. Some common environments include water treatment plants and commercial swimming pools.

How does it work?

A gas detector is a highly sensitive instrument which measures a specified concentration range of gas/gasses in an area. The detector contains a sensor which continuously monitors gas levels in ambient air, and activates an alarm to warn the user if the safe threshold is exceeded. Gaffey's gas detection systems are designed with powerful, accurate technology, which alerts you to hazardous gases down to ppm (part per million) levels. Our products are sensitive to a range of gases that could be harmful or dangerous in the event of malfunctioning machinery or chemical leaks/spills. If you own or work in an environment which is at risk of harmful gases it is important to establish a gas detection system as soon as possible to protect employees and customers. Call us or fill in our contact form to speak to a member of the team about which options are best for you.

Why do I need to install one?

The health and safety of your personnel and visitors is of the highest importance in any situation, especially where potentially toxic substances are being used. Consider areas which do not see regular human occupancy or where a developing problem could potentially go unoticed, or where customers may occupy areas close to where chemicals or gas may be used or stored. A detector should be located in or near the hazard area, with the display/alarm unit positioned at the entrance to this area to allow conditions to be reviewed by employees prior to entering.
