RKI Instruments GX-2012 Multi Gas Detector
Hazardous and flammable, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has a strong "rotten egg" smell, and occurs naturally in a number of ways. H2S is produced by natural gas and crude petroleum. It also occurs during the breakdown of human/animal waste and other organic matter. Because hydrogen sulfide is heavier than air, it collects and poses a serious danger in confined spaces with no adequate ventilation.
Carbon monoxide (CO) in high concentrations can be very dangerous. It can cause extreme neurological injury; exposure can cause illness leading to coma and even death. Carbon monoxide is produced on job sites in a number of common ways: portable generators inside buildings, welding and gas-powered pumps and other fossil-fueled engines operating in confined space. CO acts quickly, and because it is odorless and colorless, it can overcome a worker with little or no warning.
Oxygen (O2) is dangerous to workers in high concentration - where combustion of this flammable gas is possible - and in low levels where lack of oxygen makes respiration difficult or impossible. Oxygen levels must be constantly checked to ensure that workers in confined space are safe.
Lower Explosive Levels (LELs): the sniffer checks a broad range of potentially combustible particles, which can arise from many different industrial scenarios. The LEL is a minimum concentration of gas or vapor needed for ignition to occur. This unit includes rechargeable NiMH batteries and an optional charger.
- IP-67 Protection provides contamination and water protection within a sturdy rubber housing that also protects it from falls and shield it from RFI interference
