Gas Detectors: The most common mistakes people make when using atmospheric monitors
The LEL, O2, CO and H2S sensors in single and multi-sensor portable instruments are accurate, dependable, and can last for years in normal operation. As good as they are, however, sensors have limitations as well as capabilities. A sensor that underestimates or fails to detect the hazard it is supposed to measure can be the cause of accidents. It’s critical to understand what these life safety devices are able to accurately detect, and what they can’t. It’s also important to be aware of additional technologies such as infrared (IR) and photoionization (PID) sensors that can provide a solution when standard sensors are not the best choice.
Attendees will learn:
- What the sensors in your gas detectors can (and can’t) actually detect
- The most common mistakes people make when using their gas detectors
- Calibrating LEL sensors to maximize accuracy
- Where to set the alarms
- Changes in the TLV® exposure limit for H2S, and what to do about it
- Choosing the best sensor technologies for specific monitoring applications
- Times when infrared combustible gas sensors may be a better choice
- Using PIDs for measurement of toxic VOCs like benzen
