Disposal gas detector

Once switched on, we can no longer switch it off. The disposable gas detector runs continuously for two years. It is as simple and effective as a conventional (non-disposable) single gas detector. The main advantage of the disposable gas detector is that it requires almost no maintenance. On the other hand, after two years, the device is permanently switched off and becomes unusable.

The disposable gas detector is used mainly as an oxygen meter (oxygen deficiency detector), a hydrogen sulfide (H2S) detector, or a carbon monoxide (CO) detector. However, they can be used for ammonia (NH3) or nitrogen dioxide (NO2). It is necessary to switch to a non-disposable gas detection device to evaluate the concentrations of other gases.

Portable single gas detector

This personal protective equipment is battery-operated or rechargeable and has more elaborate functions than the disposable detector, such as archiving measured concentrations and alarms. This safety device has a much longer life span than a disposable detector. For this reason, it requires regular calibration as well as periodic checks.

Conventional single gas detectors can measure concentrations of a wide range of gases such as explosive gases, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), refrigerant gases (freons) or toxic gases: CH2O, CL2, CLO2, CO, CO2, ETO (C2H4O), H2, H2O2, HBr, HCN, HCl, H2S, HF, HNO3, N2H4, NO, NO2, NH3, O2 (lack of oxygen), O3, PCl3, PH3, POCl3 or SO2. 

The "All included maintenance" concept

Most portable gas detectors are available with the "Maintenance Included" option. This innovative concept consists of providing calibrations and periodic maintenance of gas detectors for a 2 to 4-year period, depending on the case, at the time of purchase (about a hundred euros for a classic 4-gas monitor with 2-year maintenance included). At the end of these two years, it will be possible to renew this service for two additional years and so on...
