A wide variety of gases are used in laboratories such as carbon dioxide (CO₂), argon (Ar), helium (He), nitrogen (N₂) and oxygen (O₂). These gases pose a serious risk should they leak, this risk can occur from fixed piped gas systems or individual cylinders of gases.
We offer a range of fixed & portable gas detectors suitable for various laboratory and medical processes which use gas and are ideal for detecting gas leaks.
From portable oxygen monitors, such as our Aspida, to fixed monitors such as the O₂NE+, our range can help keep you safe from inert gas leaks.
Carbon dioxide (CO₂) is widely used as a laboratory gas in cryogenic applications, sample transportation and cell culture incubators. Other gases stored in laboratories include inert gases such as argon (Ar), nitrogen (N₂) and helium (He) which are used as carrier gases, or in cryogenics. Whereas a leak of CO₂ will cause a higher concentration of this gas in the atmosphere, a leak of any of these gases can lead to oxygen (O₂ ) depletion. Laboratories also store and operate with high levels of oxygen (O₂) ; a leak of enriched oxygen (O₂) could also prove to be a fire risk.
