Portable Gas Detectors

Single Gas Detectors

Our range of Honeywell single gas monitors have been designed to bu user friendly and will detect a variety of gases from toxic, combustible, PID and VOCs. The GasAlert BW Clip has two models with options between maintenance free operation or the ability to display real-time gas levels and the ability to calibrate if required. The RAE Systems ToxiRAE Pro allows for swappable sensors in the field and wireless data transmission. 

Multi Gas Monitors

The portable multi gas detectors available at Aegis Sales & Service are from leading manufacturers Honeywell Analytics and RAE Systems and will detect toxic, flammable and combustible leaks, as well as monitoring for oxygen depletion, PID (and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). All our multi gas detectors are IEC compliant and easy to use. Our models include: pumped, IR (Infra-red) and wireless.

Suitable Applications include: Confined Space Entry / Fracking / Hazmat Response / Emergency Response / Clandestine Labs / Environmental cleanups & Remediation / Industrial Hygiene / Oil & Gas - plant shutdowns & turn-around / Water & Sewerage Treatment Plants / Refineries / Recycling 

Calibration Docks

Our calibration docks are suited to single or portable gas monitors. The flexibility of the MicroDock II means you can have a modules to suit a vairety of detector modules connected to the one base station. (1 base station with 1 AC outlet will support up to 6 modules). The AutoRAE 2 is a versatile and modular dock that can be deployed as a single or stand-alone unit to calibrate one instrument at a time. It can be networked to support up to 10 units at once and calibrate up to five distinct gases. Both docks offer one-touch bump testing and calibration. Aegis also offer custome designed protective cases for portability of your Dock or Storage cabinet systems to suit your needs.

Portable Gas Detector Accessories

We can provide the right accessories for your gas detector including: carry/storage cases, external filters, IR cables, AC chargers, multiple chargers, vehicle chargers, docking stations, calibration gas.

Challenge testing your gas detector

Many workers will operate machinery without much thought as to how and why it works or in some cases as to whether it is actually working properly at all.

So the question is, how do you know whether your gas detector is functioning correctly?

Answer - the only true way to confirm that a gas detector is functioning and is capable of responding to gas is to expose the gas detector to a concentration of target gas that is high enough to initiate an alarm situation.

This process is often called a 'Bump Test' or 'Challenge Test'

Worplace environments can be harsh on your gas detector and subject it to extreme shock such as being dropped from heights, run over by heavy vehicles, exposed to high temperatures, humidity, water, mud, dust, chemicals and toxic gases. As a service facility we have seen many gas detectors that have been exposed to environmental or human interference, including accidental / deliberate damage caused by piercing the sensors, destroying the audiable alarm piezo and breaking the casing seal to name a few. You have to ask yourself do you really want to put your life into the hands of a gas detector that may not be functioning properly?

A Bump Test consists of
Who is responsible
How do I know if my unit has failed a bump test
What do I do now
Other considerations
Images

What should a challenge test consist of?
  • expose the gas detector to a known concentration of gas to ensure that the instrument responds
  • when the instrument is exposed to gas make sure both the audible and visual alarms activate

Who is responsible for bump/challenge testing your gas detector?

Section 9.2.1 Inspection and field-check (response check) of AS/NZS 60079.29.2:2008 Gas Detectors - Selection, use and maintenance recommends "that this is done by personnel actually operating the apparatus and is strongly recommended that it is performed before each day of use" while AS2865-2009: Australian Confined Space Standard section 3.4.50 states that "Gas monitors used for the purpose of atmospheric monitoring within a confined space should be maintained and used in accordance with manufacturer's instructions and warnings and in reference to AS/AZS 60079". 

 

How will you know if you instrument has failed the bump/challenge test?

  • the sensor readings will be outside of the manufacturer's allowable range
  • the audible alarm will be very soft and hard to hear
  • the visual alarms are not working

 

What do I do if my instrument fails the bump/challenge test?

  • the sensor readings are outside of the manufacturer's allowable range - calibrate the instrument or repair
  • the audible alarm will be very soft and hard to hear - return the instrument to your servcie agent for service and/or repair
  • the visual alarms are not working return the instrument to your servcie agent for service and/or repair

What else to consider when you are challenge testing your gas detector

  • check that the sensor filters are not blocked with dirt, mud, chemicals or any other foreign substance that may impede the sensors from detecting toxic gasis in the atmosphere, if your sensors are dirty or damaged they will need to be replaced return the instrument to your servcie agent for service and/or repair
  • check the external housing for any missing screws, cracks in the housing or any other damage that may interfere with the correct operation of the instrument, if any screws are missing or there are cracks in the housing this may allow water into your instrument thus rendering it  unsuitable for use as it may not operate to it's full functionality return the instrument to your servcie agent for service and/or repair

ToxiRAE by Honeywell

ToxiRAE Pro is a personal wireless monitor for toxic gases and oxygen deficiency/enrichment. The ToxiRAE Pro can detect a broad range of gases—from carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and oxygen to ammonia, chlorine, and phosphine. The ToxiRAE Pro’s intelligent interchangeable sensors store calibration data, so if you need to monitor one gas one day and another gas the next, swapping the sensors in your ToxiRAE Pro is all it takes.

Workplace Safety Gas Detection

What you need to know about your Gas Detector for workplace safety. 
 
Your gas detector is a device that detects the pressence of various gases within your working or intended working atmosphere. The gas detector will alarm when the presence of a hazardous gas is detected. As your gas detector is a safety device that will respond to gas levels within the atmosphere it will require regular maintenance, bump testing and calibration to make sure that it is functioning correctly.
 

Want to know "what is a bump test on a gas detector" or why you should bump test your gas detector? How about calibrating your gas detector? We have put together some useful links for your information on just these topics.
