Gas detector

I am in need of buying gas detector, I found one called Gas Alert Extreme. When purchasing one i have to choose which gas i want him to detect, and the price goes up as adding them. Can you tell me which gas is absoulute neccessary ( others than O2 :-) and others that are not depending on my work which is oiltanks and chainlockers.

Thanks

Gisli

Dear Gisli,

you may buy H2S gas detector for working near oil tanks

Dear Gisli
The BW Extreme is a very good value unit and apart from an O3 sensor given your intended working places would seem the most appropriate - I suppose it just depend how you value your life - also remember that these units will only detect once they sense the gas and if you are wearing it at the bottom of tank then that might a bit late.
I would suggest you seek support to do proper risk assessment and get gas detectors with pumps that can take samples from many metres away from you prior to entry.

Re: Gas detector Gisli,

The first step is to review the purpose of the detector.
1. Is it for personal safety? If so, then see Cailean Forrester's message. We use a minimum of four gas sensors: O2, LEL, H2S, and CO They are all very important at most project sites.
2. Is it for process control? Then you must determine what needs to be detected and when the response is to occur.

In short, to provide advice more information is needed.

Tom
