Low Level Carbon Monoxide Detector

If you have an aging carbon monoxide detector that is not providing the level of protection you need, it may be time to consider upgrading to a low level CO monitor. This specialized type of detector is designed to alert at much lower levels of CO than standard UL-Listed detectors that only trigger an alarm when the concentration of CO in the air has reached 70 parts per million (ppm).

Low level carbon monoxide detector is a device that will monitor and display real time, peak and average CO concentrations over a 24 hour period, as well as provide visual and audible warning signals if detected at lower than normal levels of carbon monoxide. It is a professional quality, sealed lithium battery powered unit that has a 10 year life and features an easy to read alpha-numeric digital display. It is UL Listed to the latest ANSI/UL 2034 residential safety standard and includes two non-removable, factory sealed, ten year life batteries.

Hydrogen Sensors: Essential Tools for Gas Detection and Safety

Long term exposure to low levels of carbon monoxide can lead to heart disease, skin lesions and sweating, memory loss, flu-like symptoms, and headache. Young children, pregnant women and the elderly are particularly sensitive to low levels of carbon monoxide.

Carbon Monoxide binds to hemoglobin in the bloodstream, binding it to carboxyhaemoglobin and reducing the amount of oxygen that can be transported around the body. Long-term low levels of carbon monoxide can increase the percentage of carboxyhaemoglobin that is bound, causing deprivation of oxygen and potentially leading to unconsciousness and death.

Hydrogen Sulfide Monitor

A h2s monitor, also known as a hydrogen sulfide vape detectors, is used to detect hazardous levels of H2S gas in the air. It alerts the user through audible, visual, and vibration alarms when a certain amount of H2S has been detected, giving them the ability to evacuate or take other safety precautions as needed. H2S monitors also provide the user with an LED display that indicates whether the sensor has reached a high or low alarm set point and the gas concentration in parts-per-million (ppm).

Hydrogen Sulfide Monitor Comparisons

Workers in industries such as oil and gas, construction, mining, water, and wastewater depend on H2S monitors to keep them safe while working in confined spaces where hydrogen sulfide can accumulate to unsafe levels. A h2s monitor should be tested for contaminant gases regularly (using bump testing and calibration) to ensure the sensors remain accurate, as exposure to contaminant gases will degrade the sensor over time. The best h2s monitors are small and lightweight enough to wear comfortably, and come with clips that attach easily to clothing. They have long battery life and large displays that show the parts-per-million H2S concentration reading, and include LED, buzzer, and vibration alarms for added safety.

Many h2s monitors offer a hibernation mode to help extend the lifespan of the sensors, which typically last from 24 to 36 months. Choose a monitor with a clear digital display that is easy to read, so the reading will always be readily available when you need it.
