Linde Canada has introduced the G-TECTA™ line of portable gas detection instruments, designed for easy use and maximum protection against hazardous working conditions.
The new line is perfectly suited for people working in confined spaces in industries such as construction, welding, manufacturing, petrochemicals and oil refining.
The G-TECTA gas detectors from Linde are light enough and small enough to be affixed to a shirt or collar via an alligator clip. The multi-gas instruments have upward facing displays to maximise visual awareness of unsafe gas levels in confined spaces.
They are also equipped with alarm systems for audible and visual detection of hazardous conditions. The instruments are certified to meet all Canadian Safety Associations standards and all global safety standards; they are suitable for use in potentially noxious or explosive areas, as well as areas where oxygen displacement could be a potential problem.
The G-TECTA gas detectors, which are now available in all 70 Linde branches across Canada, are offered in single-gas or multi-gas options that can be calibrated to detect up to as many as 28 different gases.
Christian Lafleur, Area General Manager- Eastern Region for Linde Canada, explained, “We believe, initially, the most popular instruments will be those that detect carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxygen, hydrogen sulfide and combustible gases.”
From 1st January 2012, Analox Sensor Technology is re-launching its popular Analox 3000 range of industrial transmitters. The range was withdrawn in April 2010 when parts became difficult to source, the company explaied.
Several particle physics laboratories are using Tiger Optics’ LaserTrace and Halo instruments to monitor the level of oxygen and moisture in the detector medium that such labs employ to study the ghost-like neutrino particles.
