What are the specifications of gas sensor?

Sensor Specifications

Gase Name Measuring Range Part Number Sensor Specification
Carbon Monoxide (CO) 0 – 300 ppm 65-2005_2007-CO
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) 0 – 100 ppm 65-2035_2037-H2S
Chlorine (Cl2) 0 – 3.00 ppm / 0-10.0 ppm 65-2051
Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) 0 – 1.00 ppm 65-2052

What is chlorine gas detector?

A chlorine (Cl2) gas detector, also known as a Cl2 gas meter, detects and monitors the concentration of chlorine in the air. These gas meters are used to alarm personnel of a dangerous chlorine gas exposure. Chlorine is used in households, swimming pools and industry settings as a disinfectant.

What is the STEL value of chlorine?

ACGIH: The threshold limit value (TLV) is 0.5 ppm averaged over an 8-hour workshift and 1 ppm as a STEL (short-term exposure limit).

What ppm can you smell chlorine?

The odor threshold for chlorine is 0.002 ppm in air and 0.31 ppm in water.

What type of sensor is a gas sensor?

Gas sensors (also known as gas detectors) are electronic devices that detect and identify different types of gasses. They are commonly used to detect toxic or explosive gasses and measure gas concentration.

Why gas sensors are needed?

Gas sensor, as one of the most important devices to detect noxious gases, provides a vital way to monitor the concentration and environmental information of gas in order to guarantee the safety of production. Therefore, researches on high sensitivity, high selectivity, and high stability have become hot issues.

How do you test for Cl2?

Chlorine Gas Detectors from International Gas Detectors – We can provide a range of fixed sensors and portable gas monitors for the detection of Cl2. It is important for many industries to have accurate and fast detection for Chlorine to avoid the gas reaching dangerous toxic levels.

How does a chlorine leak detector work?

Electrochemical sensors or cells are most commonly used in the detection of toxic gases like carbon monoxide, chlorine and nitrogen oxides. They function via electrode signals when a gas is detected. Generally, these types of detectors are highly sensitive and give off warning signals via electrical currents.

How do you test the air for chlorine gas?

Chemical test to identify chlorine gas. The gas turns damp blue litmus paper red. Shortly later the litmus paper is bleached white.

How is chlorine detected?

The first option for testing uses a liquid chemical OTO (orthotolidine) that causes a color change to yellow in the presence of total chlorine. You simply fill a tube with water, add 1-5 drops of the solution, and look for the color change.
