Portable multi gas detector

The portable multi gas detector can detect up to 7 gases simultaneously and is available in diffusion mode or with a gas sampling pump. It is an essential element for operators working in hostile environments. The most commonly used model is the 4-gas detector (explosive gases, O2, CO & H2S) found mainly in sanitation, the steel industry, public works, and confined space applications.

The portable multi gas detector

The multi gas detector can measure the concentrations of many various explosive gases, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), freons, and many toxic gases. Compact in size for low weight but with a higher cost than the single gas detector, it presents many more elaborate features. It can archive gas concentrations or alarms and calculate average and limit values of exposure or traceability of events.

It can include a gas sampling pump for access authorization measurements in confined spaces (sewers, manholes, tanks, etc.) or leak searches.

The 4-gas detector

It is the portable gas detector "par excellence" and the most common model used in industry (sanitation, public works, steel industry, interventions in confined spaces, etc.). It simultaneously detects explosive gases (natural gas, LPG, hydrocarbons, alcohols, and solvents), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), and lack of oxygen (O2).

It is also recommended (and required) as part of CATEC training (certificate of competence to work in confined spaces).

The gas detection monitor

They are also called site monitors or area monitors with a bigger size than a conventional portable gas detector. They are not personal protective equipment but area protection devices. Thus, area monitors provide accurate gas detection within a defined perimeter. Workers can move safely within the gridded zone (see "LENS Wireless technology").

The "All maintenance included" concept

Almost all of our multi gas detectors are available with the "2-year maintenance included" option. This innovative concept consists of providing calibration and periodic maintenance of the gas detectors for two years at the time of purchase (about 100 euros for the classic 4-gas detector). At the end of these two years, it will be possible to renew this service for two additional years, and so on.
