Can the Combustible gas monitor detect propane?

Can the Combustible gas monitor detect propane? Yes, propane is a highly flammable and explosive gas. A conventional Combustible gas monitor can detect propane gas. The Combustible gas monitor converts the detected gas concentration signal into an electrical signal through the gas sensor inside the instrument, and then displays it on the display screen. Sensors mostly use catalytic combustion type and can measure the concentration of total combustible gases in the environment.

Introduction to Combustible gas monitor

The combustible gas detector can not only detect propane, but also other types of combustible gases, including methane, ethane, acetylene, methanol, ethylene and other combustible gases. It can detect and display the total combustible gas concentration in the air, but it cannot individually Displays a certain gas concentration. If you need to detect the concentration of propane in the environment, you can configure a propane gas sensor in the Combustible gas monitor. Gas detectors mainly detect gases through internal sensors. Each gas detected requires a sensor. Common sensor types include catalytic combustion type, electrochemical type, PID photoion type, infrared, thermal conductivity, etc. Catalytic Combustion Sensor is mostly used to detect combustible gases in normal environments, electrochemical sensors are mostly used to detect toxic gases, and PID photoion sensors are mostly used to detect VOC gases. If the requirements for accuracy and range are higher, infrared or thermal sensors are needed. conductive sensor.

Combustible gas monitor function application

Combustible gas monitor mainly plays an early warning role and is suitable for various closed limited spaces, such as sewers, underground pipelines, granaries, railway tankers, tunnels, etc. Before entering these places, it is necessary to detect whether there is combustible gas; it can also be used in production and use And in places where flammable gases are stored, it is used to detect whether there are leaks of flammable gases in the environment, effectively avoiding the occurrence of dangerous accidents such as fires, and ensuring environmental and personal safety.

Buy Combustible gas monitor

If you need to purchase a Combustible gas monitor, you can choose the Fixed Industrial Gas Detector FS10201 produced and sold by Fosensor. This instrument is used to detect the concentration of combustible gas and alarm when it exceeds the standard. The outer shell is made of explosion-proof materials and is suitable for various complex working conditions. , with the characteristics of explosion-proof, lightning-proof, anti-static, and electromagnetic interference resistance. Signal transmission can be optional 4-20mA or RS485 signal. It has fast response speed and high measurement accuracy. It has good applications in petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, medicine and other industries.

 

The above is the relevant introduction of whether the Combustible gas monitor can detect propane. The Combustible gas monitor can detect the total combustible gas concentration in the environment. Propane is a type of combustible gas and can be detected. If there is more than one combustible gas such as propane in the environment, the combustible gas detector cannot display the concentration of propane alone. If you need to detect the concentration of propane gas separately, you need to use a propane gas detector.
