    The CoGDEM Guide to Gas Detection

    Industrial gas detectors form an important part of safety systems designed to protect users from the harmful effects of flammable, toxic or asphyxiant gases. These gases can cause explosions, damage health or deplete the oxygen content of the air. Consequently, accurate gas detection is vital for protecting human life as well as process plant and ...
