If your job involves crude oil, natural gas, or bacterial decomposition, you are likely to come into regular contact with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas. Hydrogen sulfide is a colorless, highly toxic gas that can cause a variety of dangerous conditions. Without proper testing systems in place, the safety of your workers and equipment could be compromised. The H2S detector is typically used as part of a monitoring system to detect high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide in ambient air.
The H2S detector can also be used as a sample extraction monitor to measure H2S gas remotely in confined Spaces and, with appropriate equipment, to monitor H2S levels in natural gas streams. Overall, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas monitors are an effective way to monitor gas concentrations in your vicinity.
Types of Hydrogen Sulfide Detectors
Portable Hydrogen Sulfide Detector
Portable hydrogen sulfide detector is a convenient to carry to the site to detect hydrogen sulfide gas leakage and timely alarm gas detector. Portable hydrogen sulfide detector adopts humanized design, light body, easy to carry and operate, built-in high sensitivity hydrogen sulfide sensor probe, fast response, sensitive response, accurate measurement, with multiple alarm function. It is suitable for gas storage leakage monitoring, workshop disinfection residue detection of gas leakage, indoor air gas detection and other fields.
Explosion-proof H2S Gas Sensor
The explosion-proof Hydrogen Sulfide gas detector can be used in 24 hours continuous online monitoring of concentrations of Hydrogen Sulfide in the field.
How Does an H2S Detector Work?
Hydrogen sulfide gas detectors primarily use electrochemical sensors to detect and measure parts-per-billion (‘ppb’) and parts-per-million (“ppm”) levels of H2S gas. These sensors depend on a highly reliable electrochemical reaction that occurs when H2S gas combines with specific materials used in the sensor. This reaction creates a tiny electrical current that is amplified and measured by the electronics in the gas detector. These industrial quality H2S detectors can help make sure the H2S concentration level stays below the limit required by The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
What is a Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Gas Detector, GDS Corp, Houston, TX
Depending on the environment, the Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL) for H2S gas are:
1、General Industry Ceiling Limit: 20 ppm
2、General Industry Peak Limit: 50 ppm (up to 10 minutes if no other exposure during shift)
3、Construction 8-hour Limit: 10 ppm
4、Shipyard 8-hour limit: 10 ppm
Reliable Gas Detection Systems
Does your waste facility or manufacturing process have a gas detection system installed? While hydrogen sulfide is typically characterized by its rotten egg smell, you can’t rely on your senses alone since high levels of H2S cannot be detected by smell. Don’t ignore the hazardous effects of H2S in your vicinity; install an H2S detector you and your team can rely on.
