What is a combustible gas detector?
Combustible gas detectors are portable, hand-held instruments used to diagnose and locate gas leaks.
A combustible gas is any gas which has the potential to explode. For more information, see:.
These gas detectors can be used in professional and household applications.
Gas detectors are electrical devices, and their portable nature means they are battery powered. Disposable household batteries are generally used, with PP3 (9V), AA or C being the most common.
As well as the combustible gas detectors covered in this project, there are other gas detectors available for different types of gas detection and also fixed combustible gas detectors for use in specific industries, such as marine and energy companies.
