Portable Gas Detection has many different variations from single gas units, through to four, five, six and even seven gas configurations. The configuration is entirely dependent on your requirements, single gas options are generally available as either maintained or throw-away models and are usually available for toxic gases and oxygen monitoring. Multi-gas monitors are more specific and the most common monitor companies like Total Protection have available for sale and on their hire fleet is the four gas unit that detects for Methane (CH4), Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Oxygen (O2) this is the most widely used configuration for confined space entry, although it is imperative you know what gases you need to detect for. Multi-gas monitors can be configured to detect for a wide range of toxic gases including, Chlorine, Ammonia, Ozone and Nitric Acid, along with Infra-red sensors used for detection of Carbon Monoxide and Flammable Gases. Photoionization Detectors (PID) sensors are used for the detection of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and can measure in concentrations from sub parts per billion to 10,000 parts per million (ppm). PID monitors are usually configured within an internal pump to allow for remote sampling using a probe. Gas monitors are calibrated on a 6-monthly basis or after use if they become faulty and in-line with your company procedures. Portable gas monitors should be bump tested before use to ensure gas is reaching the sensor heads.

Meet G7c — the world’s first 3G-connected gas detector with integrated lone worker monitoring and evacuation management tools. In the event of an emergency, G7c wirelessly connects your team members with live monitoring personnel to mobilize and manage the fastest possible emergency responses.
The GMI PS500 can be tailored to detect up to five gases with its toxic and catalytic sensors. This includes Photo Ionisation Detectors (PID) and Infrared (IR) capabilities. The “Plug and Play” option allows the customer to “plug in” a new board with a different gas range, whenever the user needs to.
The BM25 packs the benefits of a fixed system area monitor into a rugged, user-friendly and transportable instrument. It was designed to detect one to five gases for mobile or temporary work applications, team protection, area surveillance or places where fixed detection systems are not suitable.
Blackline’s G7 offers an exclusive modular design with field-replaceable gas sensor cartridges and delivers industry-leading customization to accommodate nearly every
For situations where multiple G7s require calibration or bump testing simultaneously, up to five G7 Docks can be joined together to perform test functions across all connected devices. Multiple docks can be connected to a single gas cylinder. One gas cylinder is able to support five docks at one time.
G7 Docks in a multi dock set-up act independently of each other — docks connected to the same gas cylinder can perform bump tests and calibrations at the same time without interfering with each other.
