Will your gas detector really save lives?
No matter how basic or technologically advanced your gas detector or monitor, how do you know it is working correctly? How do you know it will save lives?
The only way to eliminate doubt is to regularly calibrate gas detection monitors and to check the general functioning of alarms. Manufacturers make recommendations regarding calibration but it could be argued that, in the case of personal and portable gas detectors, functional checking should be carried out every time a gas detector is used. It is also a fact that many gas detectors fitted with a test facility usually check the electronics of the device rather than the gas sensing function.
Functional testing and calibration does not have to be expensive. Lightweight, small, non-refillable gas cylinders are ideal, particularly out in the field where portability is paramount. Calibration and test gases should play a crucial part in every day gas detection.
The perfect size for functional bump testing of equipment is the 20 Litre can, which conforms to ISO11118 standard. For regular calibration, 34 litre, 58 litre and the new Euro-Gas 110 litre cylinder, which conforms to the important European Legislation EN12205, provide more gas in a convenient size and at low cost.
Across the globe, manufacturers, distributors and end customers utilise Euro-Gas cylinders to protect the safety of personnel. A significant number of Euro-Gas worldwide clients take advantage of a complimentary private labelling service to extend their own range of products, with the knowledge that they have the experience and technical support of Euro-Gas behind them. Where larger quantities of gas are required, Euro-Gas refillable cylinders offer another convenient solution.
Euro-Gas also offers advanced gas sensors and supporting circuitry, presenting simple gas detection solutions for manufacturers.
