Industrial sites that employ or produce hazardous or toxic gases have a high level of responsibility for protecting workers and the environment from exposure or harm. A significant component of efforts to mitigate the risk posed by toxic gas or vapor is to install instruments capable of detecting the target gases at levels sufficient to provide an alert before, or when, levels reach unacceptable concentrations.

Dräger manufactures gas detectors utilizing electrochemical sensing technology, providing continuous detection of target gases and vapors under a wide range of environmental conditions. The sensors are factory calibrated and ready to use when shipped. The sensor connection is intrinsically safe, so a flame arrestor is not needed. Intelligent self-testing provides predictive maintenance assistance.

There is more to learn about the toxic gas and oxygen sensors from Dräger. The document included below provides a guide to the over 100 toxic gases and vapors detectable by the unit. Share your toxic gas, vapor, and oxygen detection challenges with a product application specialist. The combination of your process knowledge with their product application expertise will produce effective solutions.
