Gas Detection Systems

A gas detection system is a vital safety mechanism used in various industries and environments to monitor the presence of hazardous gases and alert personnel to potential dangers. These systems are crucial for ensuring the safety of workers, preventing accidents, and complying with HSE and COSHH regulations.

The gas detection systems incorporate sensors designed to detect specific gases or vapours. These sensors can be electrochemical, catalytic, infrared, or semiconductor-based, depending on the type of gas they are designed to detect. Common gases monitored include methane, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide, oxygen, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The detection of this gases is monitored by the integration of a central control system which  received data and continually evaluates the quantity of gases in the working environment from gas detection sensors and sampling pumps. These systems designed with preset thresholds bespoke to the environment setting and gases used. If the gas concentration exceeds the preset thresholds the alarm system will activate with audible and visual alarms, to alert personnel to the presence of hazardous gases. The gas detection systems also incorporate remote alarm panels located in areas to inform trained staff in the event of an failure or emergency.
