What type of gas detector is most appropriate for the application? What is the optimum area of coverage I should consider and How High must I locate a gas detectors?
Our IR gas detectors differ from all other models, because they utilise silicon based solid-state IR sources. The complete opto-mechanical design and construction is so stable that an ultra-fast speed of response can be achieved whilst providing unparalleled service life and detector stability, thus saving on maintenance and service costs.
In some installations, and subject to the surrounding environment, Catalytic Gas Detectors can cause operators various problems and ultimately may reduce safety.
Gases and vapours are transparent to visible light but block light of specific wavelengths. The interaction between absorption and wavelength generates a profile or “fingerprint” for each gas molecule; the Beer-Lambert law defining the absorption physics from which a gas concentration can be quantified.
HSE Guideline Note PM84 recommends gas detectors in ventilation outlet should be set to their lowest practicable level, preferably below 5% LEL but not exceeding 10% LEL.

As opposed to point detectors, the length of the measuring path of an open path detector is different from installation to installation. Normally, the measuring path is too long to be filled with a homogeneous gas concentration. In principle, an open path detector measures the total amount of gas present in the measuring path. Therefore, an open path detector will not distinguish between a small gas cloud with high concentration and a large gas cloud with a low level of concentration.
