Choosing the right gas detector

Fracking – Gas Detection

The natural gas released from fracking can be easy detected using a variety of gas detectors fitted with the right sensor. The best devices are those currently used by the UK’s gas utilities, such as the GMI Gas Surveyor range; although, all major manufacturers have devices that will work almost as well and often for less money.

Product Review – Draeger X-am 7000

The X-am 7000 gas detector is definitely the most sofiaticated portable gas detector we have received for testing to date.

Its sleak design and robust sensor housing makes it an ideal choice for those harsh environments and tough working conditions.

You may ask however; “is the X-am 7000 worth the high price it demands from suppliers?” Well to answer that question you’ll need to dig deeper into its capabilities and find out what lies beneath a its basic outward appearance.

When is Gas Testing Required?

Air is an essential elements for life and as we have previously discussed the atmosphere around us can quickly become contaminated without us knowing. The reason why we are unaware of contamination is due to the fact that many dangerous gases are both odourless and colourless – making them impossible to detect using our senses such as smell and sight. Therefore the only way we can be sure that our atmosphere is safe is to test it. We do that by means of a suitable gas detector or sometimes laboratory analysis.
