Methane – CH4

This page presents information about methane (CH4) – also known as natural gas – appropriate detection means – methane CH4 gas detector – and respiratory protective equipment (self-contained breathing apparatus and supplied air respirator).

Methane CH4 gas detector and CH4 respiratory protection

Methane properties

Natural gas – or methane – (CH4) is naturally produced from decomposition of organic matter in poorly oxygenated areas. Its anthropogenic version is massively produced through the exploitation and combustion of fossil matter and in any other field of activity with organic matter decomposition: waste landfill sites, biogas production.

Dangers of methane gas

Methane (CH4) is colorless, odorless and heavier than air. Because of these properties, this gas cannot be detected without proper equipment and can accumulate in suspended ceilings and other high-up areas. This gas is above all extremely flammable (R12) and explosive, with explosive limits between 5 and 15% volume.

Methane – CH4 gas – is not a toxic gas but it might replace oxygen when reaching high concentration levels in poorly ventilated areas. It is also responsible of the greenhouse effect as it absorbs earth infrared rays that enhance climate warming. Methane is one of the six major gases covered by the Kyoto protocol.

Methane CH4 gas detector

As methane is not detectable through smell, only a CH4 gas detector can accurately measure the presence of this combustible gas. It is recommended to use a methane detection system that will be monitoring concentrations in percentage of the LEL (explosimeter or combustible gas monitor).

The Dräger Xam-EXPLO ATEX combustible gas detector is a portable monitor for explosive gas such as natural gas, butane, propane, hydrocarbons, solvents, alcohols, and some organic vapors. Small, light and with great autonomy, it indicates in real time the lower explosive limit in % LEL.

  • Possibility of adding 3 other gas sensors to make a 4 gas detector (EXPLO, O2, CO, H2S)
  • Optional sampling pump for remote sampling (access authorization)
  • Protection against water and dust (IP67)
  • Sensor life of over 4 years

Especially designed for use in hazardous atmospheres, the X-am 2500 portable multi gas detector is ATEX approved for zone 0 (permanent explosive atmosphere). This small 4 gas monitor can accurately and reliably detect the presence of up to 4 gases among O2 (oxygen), CO (carbon monoxide), H2S (hydrogen sulfide), NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) and SO2 (sulfur dioxide).

The powerful tiny sensors of the X-am 2500 multi gas detector allow safe and reliable detection of hazardous gases concentrations. Thus these high performance gas detection sensors are ideally well-suited for industrial applications and refineries. Moreover, thanks to their unique design, these gas detection sensors feature a long-lasting shelf life – up to 5 years for O2, CO and H2S sensors. This high sensor durability then enables reduction of gas detection related operating costs.

Thanks to its compact and lightweight design associated to a robust crocodile clip, the X-am 2500 portable 4 gas monitor can be easily and comfortably worn on a belt or on a collar without disturbing the user. Moreover, this portable multi gas  detector features several gas entries on the top and on the front in order to properly operate even if the device is inside a pocket or if one of the entries is accidentally covered. As a safety device against potentially dangerous gas concentrations, the X-am 2500 has a 3 years guarentee to ensure maximum security to its user.

The X-am 2500 portable gas monitor  features a large easy to read LCD display. All of the target gases are simultaneously displayed on the screen and once a gas alarm occurs, the hazardous target gas is highlighted for fast recognition of the hazard. The ultra-bright visual alarm can be seen at 360° and is coupled with acoustic 90 dB at 30 cm and vibrating alarms.

An optional gas sampling pump is available to draw remote samples up to 30 meters in order to get sure of gases concentrations in confined spaces like tanks or pits before any intervention. This gas sampling pump, designed for this 4 gas monitor, automatically triggers upon the device start-up and it is very easy for the user to switch from pump mode to diffusion mode without any tool.

Additional information

The Ventis Pro5 multi gas detector was especially designed to silmutaneously detect up to 5 gases among the combustible gases, NH3, CO, CO/H2S, H2S HCN, NO2, O2, SO2, CO2 and HC.

 

This flexible detector features a panic button to alert nearby teams when user is in distress. It also features a mandown alert function which is set to activate after a defined period of time without motion.

 

In case of anormal concentrations, powerful audible (95 dB à 10 cm) and visual (ultra-bright blue and red lights) alarms will alert any operator working in the area, even in high-noise and dark environments.

Custom alarm action messages like “EVACUATE” or “VENTILATE” can furthermore be configured in case of emergency situations in order to safely and quickly take corrective actions.

 

Made of polycarbonate with protective rubber overmold, this gas detector is available either in black or high-visibility safety orange versions and can be combined with the VSP slide-on pump. Its integrated data logger can record up to 3 months of events. Water and dust-resistant (IP68), the Ventis Pro5 can be used in pumped version for use in confined spaces or without pump as a personal protective equipment.

 

The Ventis Pro5 portable multi gas detector also features the LENS Wireless technology. LENS is the first wireless gas detection solution that allows personal monitors and area monitors to communicate gas readings and alarms with one another. This way, panic and mandown alarms will be communicated to other Ventos Pro detectors operating in the same area in order to alert everyone on the hazardous situations.

 

Lastly, the Ventis Pro5 benefits from the iAssign® technology for site and user follow-up. Thanks to this enhanced technology, every data recorded by the device will be assigned to the user ID. This process allows amongst other things users to wear several gas detectors within the same working day.
