Oxygen detector for safety
Oxygen gas monitors - also known as oxygen meters - can monitor in real time oxygen concentrations in ambient air. When the concentrations are too low (annoxia risk) or too high (overoxygenation, with spontaneous combustion risk) the monitor alerts its user.
The most common use of oxygen gas detectors is the monitoring of low oxygen levels to prevent anoxia.
Preventing anoxia risks
Anoxia represents an important risk for workers' safety and health. Many classic work situations that can appear harmless can actually produce favourable conditions for oxygen depletion. For example using inert gases (nitrogen, helium, argon or carbno dioxide) in universities, laboratories, research centers. Working is confined spaces ( crawlspaces, sewers, tanks, underground, etc...) can also be dangerous. The use of an ogygen gas detector as an PPE (personal protective unit) is assential, enven mandatory on particular work sites.
The O2 detector: an essential PPE
Oxygen gas detectors (rather "lack of oxygen detectors") can be broken down into several versions: from the single gas monitor (disposable or not) up to the multi gas detector that can combine an O2 sensor with other gas sensors (combustible gas, CO, H2S, CO2, etc).
The most afforable device remains the disposable O2 detector that will be continuously monitoring for 2 years without any needed maintenance or sensor or battery replacement. Which maskes it a very useful and beneficial device.
