The SENKO MGT is one of our most popular multi gas detectors, capable of measuring concentrations of hydrogen sulphide 0-100ppm, oxygen, carbon monoxide and flammable gases. In this blog post, we’re looking at 10 critical use-cases of the MGT multi gas detector.
1. Confined Spaces
Any enclosed space (even a large one) can be considered a “confined space” when considering gas hazards.2 In tanks, shafts, pipes and underground spaces, poor ventilation means increased risk from toxic, flammable and asphyxiating gases. Portable multi gas detectors are vital in warning personnel against these hazards. The MGT multi gas detector is specifically designed for use in enclosed spaces, making it the worker’s choice multi gas detector. Check out our article on gas detection in confined spaces here to find out more.
2. Emergency Workers
Emergency workers such as firefighters and paramedics must routinely enter unknown and potentially dangerous spaces. This makes rapid risk assessment a high priority. For these workers, multi gas detectors are essential pieces of equipment which provide the first line of defence against invisible gas hazards in the field and enable confident decision-making in high-pressure situations. The MGT multi gas detector features clear visible, audible and vibration alarms and a rugged sensor design to ensure superior reliability in emergencies.

3. Gas Engineers
A multi gas detector is a gas engineer’s best friend. A reliable portable multi gas detector is essential when responding to a broad and unpredictable range of gas problems in domestic and commercial settings. The MGT multi gas detector is a reliable companion for any gas engineer, Featuring long-life sensor technology and an ultra-lightweight design.
4. Hot Works
“Hot work” is any work which requires and/or generates extreme heat, such as welding, soldering and torch cutting. Hot present gas hazards include flammable gases (oxygen and acetylene), asphyxiating gases (like argon and nitrogen), and carbon monoxide from incomplete fuel combustion. In hot work applications, multi gas detectors provide an easy way of monitoring all relevant gas hazards at once.
5. Sewage Works
Multi gas detectors help protect sewage workers from a wide range of gas hazards including flammable methane and poisonous hydrogen sulfide. The MGT multi gas detector is designed to withstand the harshest environments, making it ideal for sewage workers who require a versatile and robust multi gas detector.

6. Tank Cleaning
It’s hard to think of an application that better sums up the hazards of “confined spaces” better than tank cleaning. Multi gas detectors are essential equipment for anyone carrying out tank cleaning to protect against various hazardous gases during the cleaning process. The MGT multi gas detector can be equipped with either a pellistor or IR flammable gas detector to suit all tank cleaning applications.
7. Wastewater Treatment
Many toxic and flammable gases are used and produced during the wastewater treatment process, meaning that both fixed and portable multi gas detectors must be used. The MGT multi gas detector is designed to remain accurate through a wide humidity range, making it the ideal portable multi gas detector for wastewater applications.
8. Oil & Gas
Portable multi gas detectors are essential to protect oil and gas workers in environments where fixed multi gas detectors may not be practical, from oilfields to refineries and petrochemical plants. With an optional docking station for easy bump testing and calibration, the MGT multi gas detector is well-suited to demanding long-term usage in the oil and gas industry.
9. Chemical Processing
Personnel in chemical processing facilities may be exposed to various unpredictable gas hazards. Multi gas detectors like the SENKO MGT are a versatile and reliable way of protecting personnel from a broad range of gas hazards including flammable gas and low oxygen levels.
10. Automotive Industry
Flammable gases and carbon monoxide are among the prevalent gas hazards in the automotive industry; predominantly present in the engine testing process and in the final stages of production where fuel and other liquids are filled. Portable multi gas detectors like the SENKO MGT ensure that personnel moving around the facility are protected against flammable gas and carbon monoxide hazards.
