The white paper reveals statistics on the low frequency of gas detector bump tests being performed, and the risks workers take by using an instrument that has not been proven fully functional and reliable via a bump test. This data, derived from a study of more than 25,000 gas monitors used in the field and more than 2 million bump tests, prompted the development of the redundant sensor technology.
DualSense Technology includes two of the same type sensor for the detection of a single gas. The two sensor readings are processed through a proprietary algorithm and displayed as a single reading to the user. With Tango’s DualSense Technology, workers are safer regardless of bump test frequency.
“On average, workers using an instrument with DualSense Technology are 85 times safer than those using a typical single gas monitor,” said Raghu Arunachalam, Ph.D., global director at Industrial Scientific and author of the white paper. “DualSense Technology is a cost-effective way to significantly improve the safety of all workers protected by single gas monitors.”
