In any manufacturing facility, nothing is more important than safety. Between the legal requirements in running a safe workspace, the well-being of your employees, and the safety of the plant itself, health concerns are any manager’s highest priority. If your business is vulnerable to hazardous gas leaks, a portable multi gas detector is one of the best ways to protect you and your company.
1. Quick and Reliable
One of the most obvious advantages of using a portable device is the speed with which you can detect dangerous gases. Being able to carry a gas detector with you lets you test sections of your building where small leaks can build up over time, resulting in dangerous levels of hazardous gases. A portable gas detector gives you the ability to detect these spots in your facility, and take the necessary precautions to protect your employees at a moment’s notice.
2. Easy to Operate
If you’re going to assign someone to test the air quality of your building, you want the process to be as simple as possible. Portable multi gas detectors are often designed so they easily clip onto a belt. They’re lightweight, come with a minimum of buttons, and have preset alarm levels. Their facility for detecting hazardous chemicals and sounding alarms take most of the work out of the hands of the operator, so they can spend their energy seeking out various places that are prone to gas leaks.
3. Easy to Maintain
You’re not going to want to hire an outside expert who’s trained in operating a gas detector. Odds are pretty good you’d like the operation and maintenance of your detector to be done completely in-house. Fortunately, most portable gas detectors are very simple to maintain. They come with servicing and calibration options, have low sensor drift, and long battery life, ensuring years of optimal performance.
4. They’re Tough
With portable detectors, you’re not going to have to worry about their ability to withstand the stress that comes with being operated in a manufacturing environment. With built-in dust filters, and rugged designs, they’ll be able to take whatever you throw at them.
5. Inbuilt Capabilities
Portable gas detectors are sophisticated instruments capable of data and event logging on their own. This means very little supporting technology is required, and the burden on plant controllers is minimal.
As a means of improving plant safety with a minimum of expense and effort, a portable multi gas detector is a sound investment for any manufacturing facility.
