Portable Gas Detection

Personal protection you and your workforce can depend on

Ideal for confined spaces, spot leak testing and mobile use, Honeywell Analytics and BW Technologies portable gas detectors are marked by flexibility and quality. A variety of single or multi-gas detectors are offered in compact, lightweight designs— from simple alarm-only units to advanced, fully configurable and serviceable instruments.

Applications include underground utilities vaults, boiler rooms, post-fire sites, sewers, industrial plants, industrial hygiene, first responder crews and remote fleets.


The application of portable gas detectors reflects the people-oriented production and operation methods. What are the specific uses? 

Portable gas detectors are widely used in petrochemical, fire control, municipal construction, mines and other industries. Can be used to detect toxic and harmful gases, asphyxiating gases, flammable gases, etc.

Portable gas detector is divided into a pump suction type and a diffusion type according to its principle, and is divided into a single gas detector and a composite gas detector according to the type of the detected gas. The pumping instrument has a built-in sampling pump that sucks gas directly into the sampling pump for detection. Suitable for detecting gas in confined spaces or mines. Diffusion instruments directly in the measured environment to detect gas. Artificial detection is usually required, most of them are suitable for mine workers to carry, or people can enter the environment

What is one of the most important characteristics safety managers should look for in a portable gas detector?

When it comes to portable gas detection, device adaptability is key. Since hazardous gases can present themselves in a myriad of environments—spanning industries such as oil and gas, wastewater treatment, pharma, and chemical and fire services—portable gas detectors need to be able to identify a variety of threats. By performing a Process Hazard Analysis (PHA), safety managers can identify and comprehend potential risks present at a given work site.1 Because each work site presents a unique set of challenges, companies can leverage the PHA to preemptively plan for and introduce necessary steps to mitigate risk and danger for on-site workers. Broadly speaking, PHAs will identify gas-based risks that fall into three categories—potential for explosion, oxygen enrichment or oxygen deficiency ,and toxic gas poisoning.
