Draeger gas detection for outdoor and enclosed work environments
When it comes to working in environments where undetected gas leaks could be present, safety is always a number one priority. These gas leaks can strike at any time, anywhere noxious gases are stored, and can affect anyone.
Though we're all at risk of contracting gas-related health conditions if leaks go undetected, there are a handful of industries that need to be extra cautious, including:
- Agriculture and Forestry
- Solid Waste
- Trenching and Excavation
- Cleaning and Custodial Services
- Emergency Medical Services
- Long-Haul Truck Drivers
Draeger Gas Detection
Luckily, efficient gas leak detection is possible thanks to Draeger tubes. Being able to identify gas leaks, chemical spills, and other harmful substances before any damage is done is extremely important. For over 100 years, Draeger’s industrial safety products have been protecting work environments by measuring air quality and detecting harmful fumes.
There are plenty of gas detection methods available, but Draeger tubes can help clear an environment rapidly. It only takes a few seconds to identify whether a gas leak has occurred in a specific area. Each Draeger tube has a chemical inside that reacts, changes color, and indicates the amount of toxic gas (ppm and % vol).
In some instances, gas detection is necessary within a confined space, which can be difficult to accomplish. There are products like the Draeger X-am 8000 that are semi-portable instruments, great for quick gas detection within enclosed areas.
If you need gas detectors that can identify high-pressure gas leaks in all kinds of outdoor environments and confined workspaces, give us a call. Instrument Depot is the leading distributor of precision calibration gas mixtures, bump gas tests, and calibration gas accessories.
