When monitoring the atmosphere in a confined space environment, one of the most important factors to consider is the air quality. Prior to entry and during any work within a confined space, you need to ensure that your workers are safe. It is vital to check the oxygen content of the atmosphere, and to also check whether there are any toxic gases present.
While you only need to check the air quality before entering a confined space to comply with safety regulations, it is highly recommended that continuous monitoring takes place throughout any work in such an environment. The use of a portable gas detector can enable you to do this quickly, efficiently and accurately.
Below we have listed our top five gas monitors that can be found on the Rockall site, showcasing what each model has to offer and helping you to make an informed decision.
Offering complete reliability, the T4 Multi Gas Detector provides protection against the four most common gas hazards. This nationally-utilised gas monitor is Crowcon’s toughest portable design so far, with a rugged rubber boot that can withstand drops of 4m.
The T4 monitor has a battery life of 18 hours, allowing for longer shifts to be worked safely. It also has a simple single button operation that is easy to use, even when wearing gloves. With its innovative TWA Resume function, the device can correctly calculate toxic gas exposure across an entire shift, even if the T4 has been turned off during the time frame.
With the ability to monitor up to six gases simultaneously, the MSA Altair 5X Gas Detector is well suited for work in hazardous environments. Driven by advanced XCell Sensor Technology, this design delivers extremely fast response time, high accuracy and a battery life of up to 20 hours at room temperature.
Its rugged outer casing provides long-lasting durability that can survive a 3m drop. With wireless Bluetooth included as standard, the Altair X5 easily transmits data and uses advanced MotionAlert technology to inform others when the user becomes immobile.
Designed to fit perfectly into the palm of your hand, the BW Ultra 5 Gas Detector is a handheld solution to sampling and monitoring confined spaces. Capable of detecting up to five gases, this monitor uses advanced the 1-Series sensor which offers fast response and reliable performance.
This innovative device features a large, easy to view screen with an LCD dot matrix high resolution display for easy reading. Complete with a one-button operation for easy use even when wearing gloves. Its slimline design is a much lower weight than other models, and the device has a battery life of 18 hours for prolonged use.
Able to detect up to 14 pre-selected gases, the BW Solo is an easy to use safety solution that can streamline your working day. This device features Bluetooth Low Energy technology as standard that allows real-time updates to be viewed by other workers, helping teams to work together more efficiently.
With a battery life of over 12 months, the BW gas monitor can provide complete reliability for workers in potentially hazardous situations. Its user-friendly operation has a clearly visible screen and is easy to maintain for long-lasting use.
Offering reliable protection in potentially hazardous situations, the Dräger X-am 2500 Gas Detector can detect up to four different gases. The dust and water-resistant design is simple to operate with a two button control panel and easily-navigated menu.
This Dräger X-am monitor features gas entry points on each side that ensure the device is operational even when the front is covered. A 360° visible alarm ensures the wearer is fully alerted to the presence of any toxic gases. With a battery life of 12 hours, this device allows long-lasting power that can ensure the safety of the wearer for a lengthy shift.
