  • New Gas Generator to check personal Gas Detectors

    Personnel working in chemical plants protect themselves with personal gas detectors from gas exposure. Gas leaks are very unlikely to occur, so the gas detector will always display „0“. An instrument displaying zero can do so for two reasons: a) The concentration is zero. b) The instrument is defective. For good reasons a daily check of the instrument is mandatory. It would ...
