Gas detection in gas-fired boiler rooms

Gas detection in gas-fired boiler rooms

Boiler malfunction can lead to leakage of expensive gas fuel, and consequently to the accumulation of dangerous gases in an enclosed space. It is important to early detect most typical gases for this application like Natural gas and Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for timely safety measures.

Natural gas (70 - 98% of Methane) and LPG (minimum 75% of Propane) are combustible and toxic. High concentrations of these gases can cause health problems as well as an explosion hazard. Therefore, any leaks must be detected early for safety measures to be taken.

Poisonous product of incomplete combustion of gas fuel is Carbon Monoxide (CO) as well. It can accumulate in a room as a result of poor ventilation. CO is odorless, colorless and tasteless so it’s impossible to detect its presence without monitoring equipment. Exceeding the permissible concentrations is potentially dangerous for employees. Short term exposure limit (STEL) for Carbon Monoxide is 150 ppm.

We offer a wide range of gas detectors for CO and combustible gases with diverse functionality: analog and digital outputs, two SPDT relays, as well as buzzer and LED options. Please see the Featured Products section below to learn more about each of the products.
