The Benefits of Infrared Technology in Gas Clip Technologies’ Portable 4-Gas Detectors

Published: 8 July 2020 - Victoria White

Continued development and refinement of advanced low-power LED photometric infrared technology for LEL detection of hydrocarbon gases has made gas detection safer, simpler and more reliable than ever before. It allows a level of battery longevity that at one time was impossible. Think about the comparison of an incandescent light bulb to an LED light bulb. The first heats up quickly and consumes energy with lightning speed whereas the later remains cool and lasts a great deal longer because of its ability to conserve energy. Like the LED light bulb, an LED photometric infrared LEL sensor doesn’t need to expend a great deal of energy to perform its function.

Multigas Detection Without Recharging or Recalibration

Two gas detectors that perfectly demonstrate the benefits of such conservation are Gas Clip Technologies’ Multi Gas Clip Simple and the Multi Gas Clip Simple Plus. Each monitor can perform for years at a time with little to no maintenance. Just press the power button, clip them on, and these instruments will detect the presence of gas for years without needing to be recharged. The Multi Gas Clip Simple runs continuously for two years whereas the Multi Gas Clip Simple Plus reaches three years. The longevity of these detectors helps keep workers safe around the clock and removes the risk of a detector powering down in the middle of a job.

The sensors utilized in these monitors can detect the presence of deadly gases—such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO) and combustible gases (LEL)—as well as scan the environment to check the oxygen (O2) level. They even function in inert atmospheres, which makes the Multi Gas Simple and Multi Gas Simple Plus perfect companions when working in enclosed areas!

Additionally, these two detectors come fully calibrated and are immune to combustible gas sensor desensitization and poisoning, which eliminates the need for recalibrations. In contrast, detectors equipped with sensors that use a catalytic bead with filament require continual recalibration, which consumes valuable time and resources. Not putting in the additional maintenance effort on those detectors could easily prove disastrous.

Top-Notch Customer Service

With the Multi Gas Clip Simple and the Multi Gas Clip Simple Plus, you can focus on the job at hand with confidence knowing that your gas detector is always operable. Of course, whenever a great product is available to the public, there is an equally phenomenal support team behind it. The Gas Clip Technologies customer service crew tests each and every detector the company manufactures before the product is shipped out. They understand that lives depend on their detectors, so they go above-and-beyond to prevent faulty equipment from leaving their facility.
