Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection has provided its GD10P infrared gas detector with a complete firmware revision and upgrade, enhancing the product’s performance in high demand mode SIL2 approved applications. As part of the product’s continuous improvement lifecycle, this milestone builds on circa 30 years of proven field experience.
Reactive gases are defined as gases which, because of their high chemical activity, are easily sorbed (adsorbed) by the exposed surfaces of gas detection systems including detector housings, calibration adapters, and remote sample draw accessories (tubing). Because of their greater tendency to be depleted from a gas sample by the exposed surfaces of gas detection systems, special care must be taken to ensure accurate monitoring results.
Founded in 1959 under the name EIC-Sieger and operating from Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom where it still has a base today. The company was rebranded and named J&S Sieger Ltd in 1961. The man behind the company was Joshua Sieger who invented the first low-power catalytic bead sensor immune to cross-sensitivity and named it Mark 9, designed for use on boats. At the time, few companies offered gas detection solutions and those that did mainly targeted mining.
For Industrial Safety or for protection against Disease Transmission such as Coronavirus or just avoiding air pollution that can result in lung and heart problems or cancer, picking the correct mask for PPE can be a research project itself. With many types of masks, different international product approvals and differing guidelines. Here we aim to simplify the process by focusing on the main tiers of disposal mask protection.
