Q1: What is a fixed gas detector?
A1: The fixed gas detector is composed of sensors and transmitters, and is installed at the detection site. The secondary instrument consisting of circuit, power supply and display and alarm device is installed in a safe place, which is convenient for staff to monitor. In industrial installations and production processes, fixed gas detectors are generally used, because fixed gas detectors can be installed at specific detection points to detect specific gas leaks.
Q2: What does a gas detector detect?
A2: Combustible gases: Natural gas (methane), liquefied gas, coal gas (hydrogen), acetylene, pentane, alkynes, acetone, toluene, alcohols, hydrocarbons, light oil, etc.
Toxic gases: Carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, chlorine, oxygen, phosphine, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, chlorine dioxide and other toxic and harmful gases.
Q3: Difference between fixed gas detector and portable gas detector
A3: The biggest advantage of fixed gas detectors is 24-hour uninterrupted measurement. As long as the power is turned on, the fixed gas detector is in normal detection work. Portable gas detectors are usually used in confined spaces and confined spaces, but the gas environment in these spaces is usually very complex, and there will be situations such as lack of oxygen and high concentrations of harmful gases.
Tips: The necessity of detecting oxygen concentration
Oxygen is a common gas raw material in industrial production, and the gas produced in industrial production is complex in composition and contains a large amount of combustible gas, most of which exceed the lower explosion limit. For safety reasons, the oxygen content must be controlled below a set threshold to keep the flammable components in the gas below the lower explosive limit. Otherwise, the combustible gas that reaches a certain concentration will explode when it comes into contact with the heat source, posing a threat to the safety of equipment and personnel. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor the change of oxygen concentration in such an environment in real time.
The 3D printer industry, the glass bending machine industry, the high temperature boiler hanging pipe and other industries need to rush into inert gas such as nitrogen as a protective gas, so the content of oxygen should be strictly controlled. With the continuous development of science and technology, the technology of oxygen concentration detection has become more and more convenient. For the detection of hypoxia environment and the inspection and detection of trace oxygen, we can choose a suitable oxygen detector to complete it, which is more helpful for us to make appropriate preventive measures.
The normal concentration of oxygen is about 20.9% by volume, and once the concentration of oxygen decreases, you will feel suffocation. For example, the altitude sickness that occurs in the plateau environment is that the oxygen concentration in the environment is thin, and the operation in the confined space often occurs due to poor ventilation due to lack of oxygen, causing harm to the operators. By using the fixed O2 gas detector to detect the oxygen concentration in the environment, it can be judged whether there is a lack of oxygen, the danger of explosion, or the quality of the produced products can be controlled by the oxygen concentration.
