The value of having the right products for Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) gas lies in understanding your industry. While fixed gas monitors can provide reliable detection of a stationary point, portable gas detectors provide workers with continuous protection in their immediate vicinity. In the wastewater treatment and oil & gas applications, the need for portable gas monitors is increasing. Working in these industries requires workers to move freely from place to place and often times outdoors, where fixed gas detection equipment is not as effective.
H2S, or Hydrogen Sulfide, is a colorless, flammable gas that is present in several applications. H2S is commonly found in the oil and gas and waste management industries. In the oil and gas industry, the gas becomes present during drilling. Hydrogen Sulfide will leak from the drilling equipment during the extraction process. In the waste management industry, H2S gas comes from the breaking down of organic material. You may be familiar with the “rotten egg” smell that is associated with this gas. With the gas detection equipment offered by DOD Technologies, you can detect for H2S as low levels to prevent explosions and the symptoms of exposure. Our portable gas detectors, the CLPX, Four Gas Monitor, and Single Gas Monitor, provide the best protection in these industries due to their low detection levels and their portability. If you work in either of these industries it is important to take note of the OSHA standards of PELs. Also be sure to work with your employer to ensure your safety is the number 1 priority.
