What types of other leak detection tools are available?

CO2 alarms are a great tool to warn of high CO2 accumulations in a confined space. The typical CO2 alarm installation includes a CO2 sensing probe (installed in the confined space) and a control unit which displays the current CO2 level (installed just outside of the confined space being monitored). An audible alarm and visual indicator will warn of high CO2 levels from a safe place before entry into the confined space.

Another type of leak detection tool are the in-line flow meters for gas flow monitoring. As always, the active monitoring in CO2 level alarms are far superior to the passive leak detection of balls floating inside of flow meters. If you have this type of leak detection currently (tiny floating ball inside of a plastic tube) be aware that this type of leak detection is ineffective at monitoring safe work conditions.  We recommend active monitoring of CO2 levels over passive leak detection to our customers. GAS can advise you on the cost and supply of every leak detection option available.
