A Toxic gas detector is a device that detects harmful gases and vapors in your workplace. Unlike combustible gas detection, which operates in the percentage range, a toxic gas monitor operates in the parts-per-million or parts-per-billion range.

What is toxic gas release?

A lot of jobs involve working in confined spaces or with chemicals that are poisonous when inhaled. To protect against exposure to such hazards, employees need a good quality toxic gas monitor.

Toxic gas monitors come in many forms, like portable, pocket, or fixed. They use a variety of sensors to detect different types of gases. They can be used in operations such as painting, fumigation, fuel filling, landfill operations, construction, excavation of contaminated soils and entering confined spaces.

The sensitivity of a toxic gas sensor is the main factor that determines how accurate the monitor will be. A more sensitive sensor will be able to detect smaller amounts of gas and will have a faster response time.

A good toxic gas detector will be easy to maintain and calibrate. It should also be reliable, with a long product life and be compatible with your operating environment. Other factors that should be taken into account include the reading sensitivity, data recording capability and the availability of accessories.

We have developed a helmet-mounted system that monitors and alerts the user to potentially hazardous gases in confined spaces. It comprises of Alphasense gas sensors (CO/H2S, NH3-B1, CH-D3), DHT11 temperature and humidity sensors, HC-05 Bluetooth module connected to an Arduino Mega, and LEDs.
