Portable Gas Detection technology

Unlike fixed gas detectors, which permanently monitor a designated area, portable gas detectors are mobile devices used by personnel to provide pre-entry gas level checks.Each portable device will test gas levels in an area to ensure it is safe for human entry.

The focus on three core pillars reflects that of our customers – ship safety, performance and crew welfare, so we know we tick all portable gas detection boxes.

Portable gas detectors can be worn by crew members to check that various spaces are safe before they approach them. The gas detector will check for multiple gases at the touch of a button and provide a reading.

JXCT can detect up to five gases with its catalytic sensors, infrared capabilities and photo ionisation detectors. Most portable detectors will be calibrated to test for some or all of the standard four gases (LEL, H2, CO, and O2).

Some portable gas detectors are affected by sensor poisoning and drift. Others may not be compatible with Zone 0 (flammable) or inert (oxygen-free) environments.

We can safely say JXCT has the toughest portable gas detector on the planet, as its IP68 rating attests. The gas detectors can withstand Zone 0 and inert environments without impacting performance; it is immune to fine dust and can be submerged up to 1.5m underwater too.

It doesn’t need calibrating, is entirely customisable, can be digitally assigned to a crew member or department, and is the only portable gas detector with three years of battery life, allowing for 90 seconds of alarm daily.

Applications of Portable Gas Detectors:

Industrial Safety: Portable gas detectors are widely used in industrial facilities, refineries, chemical plants, and manufacturing sites to monitor the presence of toxic or combustible gases, thereby safeguarding the health and safety of workers and preventing potential accidents.

Confined Space Monitoring: In confined spaces such as storage tanks, silos, and underground tunnels, portable gas detectors are employed to assess air quality and detect the presence of hazardous gases before allowing personnel to enter these enclosed areas.

Emergency Response: First responders, including firefighters, hazmat teams, and emergency personnel, rely on portable gas detectors to identify and assess hazardous gas levels during emergency situations, such as chemical spills, gas leaks, or industrial accidents.

Environmental Monitoring: Portable gas detectors are utilized for environmental monitoring and compliance assessments in settings where the release of gases could impact air quality, such as landfills, wastewater treatment plants, and agricultural operations.

We understand that one of the cumbersome tasks onboard is trying to ensure all of your equipment is fully functional with no batteries or charges being run down, so this is borne in mind with the design of all of our products.

In summary, portable gas detectors are essential tools for monitoring and detecting hazardous gases in various settings, providing critical information to protect personnel, property, and the environment from the potential risks associated with gas leaks and exposure. Their portability, reliability, and advanced sensing capabilities make them indispensable for ensuring safety and regulatory compliance in diverse industries and applications.
