disposable gas detector :
A disposable gas detector, also known as a limited life gas detector, runs continuously for two years: once turned on it cannot be switched off anymore. This extremely easy-to-use hand held gas detector is as efficient as a classic non-disposable device. The main benefit of a disposable equipment is that it requires almost zero maintenance. However after two years of operation the device definitively turns off and is no longer usable.
Disposable gas detectors are mainly used as oxygen detectors (O2), or as personal H2S monitors (hydrogen sulphide). There are also versions of the disposable device for carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) monitoring. To detect other dangerous gas concentrations it is required to use a non-disposable personal gas monitor.
portable single-gas detector :
Compared to disposable gas detection devices, portable single-gas detectors feature enhanced functions. This personal protective equipment operates with a battery pack or rechargeable batteries, it can record measured gas concentrations and store data of the gas alert events. A single gas monitor, as a long lifespan safety unit, needs to be regularly calibrated and periodically checked.
A classic portable single-gas detector can measure the concentrations of a large range of toxic gases such as combustible gas, volatile organic compounds (VOC), as well as CH2O, CL2, CLO2, CO, CO2, ETO (C2H4O), H2, H2O2, HBr, HCN, HCl, H2S, HF, Hg (mercury vapors), HNO3, N2H4, NO, NO2, NH3, O3, PCl3, PH3, and SO2. It can also be used as an oxygen gas detector (O2 detector).
The all included maintenance concept:
Almost all our single-gas detectors are available with our 2-year All Included Maintenance program. This service is designed to forecast the calibration and the periodical maintenance of your device for two years starting on its purchase date. At the end of the two years it is possible to renew the All Included Maintenance service for two more years and so on.
