Industrial gas detectors form an important part of safety systems designed to protect users from the harmful effects of flammable, toxic or asphyxiant gases and are widely used in industry either as fixed systems or portable devices. These gases can cause explosions, damage health, or deplete the oxygen content of the air. Consequently, accurate gas detection is vital for protecting human life as well as process plant and the environment.

The CoGDEM Guide to Gas Detection, written by the Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring, assists users or specifiers of gas detection equipment making it essential reading for anyone responsible for gas detection areas ranging from gas compressor stations; oil refineries; wells & oil drilling sites; turbines & power generation; processing plants; and offshore oil rigs.

There is more detail on this topic as well as on a variety of other areas such as gas detection requirements and training, sensor technologies, and instrument calibration and maintenance. There is also information on the science of gases and lists of relevant reference documents. The book covers UK, EU and global regulations and standards.

The chapters are written by key experts, providing comprehensive information for novice and experienced industry professionals in the gas detection field.
