C2H3Cl Gas Detector, Vinyl Chloride Detector -

Vinyl chloride gas is a toxic gas that requires to be measured in various circumstances. If high levels exists, a vinyl chloride gas detector is able to alarm indoor occupants to take action in order to avoid exposure injury. The gas is colorless, combustible, and quickly evaporates. Vinyl chloride is used to create plastic kitchenware, wire coatings, automobile upholstery, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes. The vinyl chloride gas is very harmful to humans when inhaled but it can be detected using vinyl chloride gas detectors. Vinyl chloride gas has traditionally been detected using gas detector tubes but now with the cost reduction of...

Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Monoxide Detector, Low Level CO Detector -

Pet dogs and pet cats cannot smell carbon monoxide. In fact, no animal can sense or detect carbon monoxide. Although dogs have a superior olfactory system compared to humans, carbon monoxide gas in odorless to all dogs. However, although they cannot smell carbon monoxide, dogs, cats and other small animals are more sensitive to the adverse poisoning affects when carbon monoxide gas is inhaled.

Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Monoxide Detector, CO Meter -

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a tricky but deadly gas. It is elusive and difficult to track down as it cannot be sniffed out by the human nose. Many customers purchase CO meters to find a carbon monoxide leak or check for safe levels in the home, car, office or work and also help to determine if CO level are exceeding OSHA, WHO, NIOSH or ACGIH CO Threshold levels.Handheld portable CO meters are very popular and very affordable. Many are available on Amazon.com and Walmart.com, but it can get tricky to make a selection. Which is the best CO meter? Here we will provide some guidance and key features of what to look for when selecting a CO meter under $100.

Mercaptan Gas Detector, Methanethiol Gas Detector, Methyl Mercaptan Gas Meter -

Mercaptan gas is best known for its pungent smell in domestically supplied natural gas that comes into our home. It is very aromatic and because it has an extremely pungent odor that smell like skunk, garlic or some type of rotten organic matter.  Because of this, it is used as a warning odor or "stench gas" in natural gas, propane, and various other petrochemical products. Mercaptan gas on its own it very useful to the pharma industry, livestock feed, fungicide, and plastics industries. It is a toxic gas therefore gas exposure to mercaptan is important to be detected.

F2 Meter, Fluorine Gas Detector -

Fluorine gas is a toxic and corrosive gas that requires gas detection to protect humans from F2 gas inhalation. Fluorine is a very reactive gas and used throughout our modern life, found in our water and toothpaste. It is used as rocket fuel and to make fluorides, fluorocarbons and other chemicals. Fluorine is also very useful to the uranium industry, semiconductor, pharmaceutical and electronics industries.

Scuba divers all around the world have perished as a result of carbon monoxide (CO) in their air tanks. Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, and invisible poisonous gas that could make its way into your scuba cylinder when exhaust gas enters the compressed air intake then. Divers should use a low level and sensitive carbon monoxide meter to protect themselves from potentially lethal carbon monoxide effects that are amplified when diving at depth.

Carbon monoxide (CO) incidents often require response from emergency medical services (EMS), emergency medical technicians (EMT), ambulance drivers and first responders. Since CO gas is tasteless and odorless, a portable CO meter is the only solution to safeguard first responders from the carbon monoxide exposure. It is recommended that EMS always carry a carbon monoxide monitor when responding to emergency calls and when entering unknown indoor locations.

Helium Analyzer -

Helium gas analyzers are used to analyze gas mixes for breathing, trimix scuba, compressed gas, industrial applications, welding, and research & development. Helium analyzers are used with a probe to detect helium leaks in various equipment including vacuum equipment, spectrometers, and cryogenics. Since helium is light, it is an excellent tracer gas and can penetrate leaks or compromised seals to then be detected and ultimately find a leak.
