BMFHQ Portable Gas Detection Equipment Guide

Are you looking for a portable gas detector?  Our handy guide will help select the right gas detection equipment for your needs.

Quality Dräger Gas Monitors warn against risk of poisoning from Toxic Gases or Vapors, Explosions due to flammable Gases and Vapors and Suffocation Hazards due to Oxygen deficient conditions.  We offer portable Gas Detection Solutions ideal for personal gas monitoring, confined space entry, clearance measurement and leakage detection.
From disposable, single gas monitors in the PAC range, to customisable multi-gas solutions with interchangeable sensors in the X-am range, read on to learn more.

Do you require personal monitoring for single gases?

The Drager Pac® Series is tailored to personal safety in the workplace.  These Personal Gas monitors warn the user of gas hazards in the working area. These units are small and lightweight, comfortable to wear, yet offer industrial strength robustness.   The key features of all Pacs are: 

  • The miniaturised Dräger XXS sensors detect specific gases quickly and reliably.
  • Ideal for basic gases and single gases
  • Clever housing design is lightweight yet robust to handle tough conditions – IP 68 submersible
  • Easy replacement of the dust filter
  • Compliance Signal – signalling from far away that the device has been tested
  • Large display with concentration display allows estimation of the danger between zero and alarm
  • Colourful differentiation of the devices for easy identification of gas type
  • Easy replacement of dust filter
  • The miniaturised Dräger XXS sensors detect specific gases quickly and reliably.
  • Ideal for basic gases and single gases
  • Clever housing design is lightweight yet robust to handle tough conditions. IP 68 submersible
  • Easy replacement of the dust filter
  • Compliance Signal –  signalling from far away that the device has been tested
  • Large display with concentration display allows estimation of the danger between zero and alarm
  • Easy replacement of the dust filter
  • Colourful differentiation of the devices so safety engineers can check if the right gas type is worn

Do you require personal monitoring for multiple gases?

The Drager X-am® Series is ideal for the management of multiple gas safety hazards simultaneously, providing monitoring of ambient air for toxic as well as flammable gases and vapors. Due to its small size and ergonomic design, it is ideal for the use of personal air monitoring and can be worn comfortably on the clothing.
Key features of the X-am series:

  • Poisoning-resistant sensor for flammable gases with more than 4 years                       expected sensor life-time
  • Battery shift length of >12 hours
  • Industrial, rugged and waterproof to IP 67
  • Extended data storage
  • Approved for the measurement of flammable vapors
  • Cross sensitivity calibrations without manual calculations on flammable                     vapors –  simple and safe
  • Low operating cost: more than 5 years expected sensor life time for many                   sensors
  • Optional external pump, operates with a hose up to 45 meters long, allowing for        pre-entry measurements into confined spaces such as tanks, shafts, etc
  • Easy to use optional accessories for bump tests and calibrations

Monitoring of up to 4 gases?

You may want to consider the X-am® 2500 model.  This model is also ideal for CSE (Confined Space Entry):

  • 1 to 4 gases at the same time: flammable gases- catalytic, CO, H2S, O2 SO2 or NO2
  • Poisoning resistant sensor for flammable gases 
  • Battery shift length of >12 hours
  • Industrial, rugged and waterproof to IP 67
  • Extended data storage
  • Approved for the measurement of flammable vapors
  • Cross sensitivity calibrations without manual calculations on flammable vapors - simple and safe
  • Low operating cost: more than 5 years expected sensor lifetime for CO, H2S, O2
  • 1 to 4 gases at the same time: flammable gases - catalytic, CO, H2S, O2,                        SO2 or NO2
  • Low operating cost: more than 5 years expected sensor life time for CO, H2S, O2
  • Note: Fixed sensors in  non-flex model  cannot be changed out after sale
  • X-am® 2500 Flex model allows for changeable sensors
