H2S (hydrogen sulfide) is one of the most dangerous hazards in the oil and gas industry. It is a flammable, colorless gas that is toxic at extremely low concentrations and causes you to quickly lose your sense of smell, which can result in an individual failing to recognize the presence of dangerously high concentrations.
Gas Find IR Personal Monitors
Gas Find IR personal monitors are a very important part of safety in the oil and gas (petroleum) sectors, helping to protect us from potential harm from leaks and venting. But with a sudden change in wind direction it is possible to be encompassed in a dangerous situation by walking into it before you have time to react.
Our advantage to these types of Gas Find IR cameras is that they can be tuned to mid-wavelength (3-5 um). Gas Find IR cameras can detect 22 different VOC gases and some of these gases are often present with H2S making it detectable with this equipment, which is used in the oil and gas industry and can be detected at a safe distance. It can detect small leaks from several meters and large leaks from hundreds of metres away. Our company policy of “Scan Before You Enter” ensures that we have the added advantage to be well prepared for what lies ahead.
