  • Confined space entry – is your gas detector right for the job?

    Working in confined spaces is difficult at the best of times. Operators often have to wear full PPE (personal protective equipment), are usually harnessed and may be carrying tools and equipment to complete the task in hand (e.g. welding). The last thing a worker in this environment needs to worry about is his or her gas detector. It should be designed specifically for confined space entry (CSE) ...

  • The Heat Shield: Guarding your sensors against overheating

    Instruments installed in open plants such as gas detectors, smoke detectors or other instrumentation are often located in places where they are exposed to direct sunlight. When planning a new plant it is nearly impossible to predict in which location an instrument will be exposed to sunlight. Radiant heat from the sun will warm up instrument housings made of metal or dark material in a very short ...
