Infrared Sources for Industrial & Safety Applications
Combustible and Toxic Gas Detection
Combustible Gas Detection
Combustible gas detection is a necessity to ensure safety of personnel working in hazardous or dangerous environments. Combustible and explosive gas accumulation, due to leaks or process irregularities, can not only endanger factory workers, but also the adjacent population.
A fast and accurate measurement of combustible gases below the Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) is essential in such cases. NDIR sensors provide concrete benefits over traditional technologies based on solid-state sensors (e.g. catalytic bead) such as high accuracy, lifetime, and low cost of ownership.
Toxic Gas Detection
A number of toxic gases, such as CO, H2S, HCN, as well as a wide range of hydrocarbons are used widely in industry, and even small leaks can be extremely harmful. Reliable and quick detection of toxic gases is critical to protecting workers and the general population.
NDIR sensors provide concrete benefits over traditional technologies, e.g., catalytic bead or electrochemical detection, such as high accuracy, lifetime, and low cost of ownership.
