BG40 gas detector
Highly sensitive, quick-response detection of even the smallest gas leaks
Storing and using combustible gases such as natural gas, methane, ethane and propane ranks among the everyday risks not to be underestimated. On these grounds, you should regularly inspect gas cartridges and LPG containers at your home or on your boat as well as gas pipelines and fittings for leakage by use of a gas detector – like the BG40.
Owing to its high sensitivity, the compact hand-held measuring device BG40 registers even the smallest of gas leaks in less than two seconds – and with a sensitivity level of <10 ppm it alerts you even to minor gas concentrations via a visual and acoustic alarm signal topped off with a vibration alert. With increasing frequency and volume the acoustic alarm signal indicates a growing intensity of the escaping gas.
A flexible tubular probe of 40 cm (15.75") length permits the detection and identification of a leak in poorly accessible and confined spaces. The gas detector comes equipped with a backlit LCD display on which the measured ppm values can be read at any time quickly and easily even in unfavourable lighting conditions. Also indicated is the lower explosive limit in % (often abbreviated as LEL); it defines the minimum gas concentration in the air at which an explosion is possible.
The BG40 reliably detects combustible gases such as natural gas, methane, ethane, propane, butane, hexane, ethylene, acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, toluene, p-xylene, acetone, alcohol, benzene, ammonia, steam, carbon monoxide, petrol and hydrogen sulphide.
