Avoiding benzene exposure is crucial due to the serious short and long-term health impacts it can have on our bodies. Click here to find out how to avoid it.
Hydrogen is becoming an increasingly popular choice for the industrial sector. However, as the demand for hydrogen increases, there will be an even greater need for more readily available and reliable hydrogen gas detection systems. As a manufacturer of gas detection equipment for over 100 years, International Gas Detectors (IGD) offers a range of hydrogen gas detector devices to meet the site requirements of our customers. Read our blog to learn more.
Recently, IGD collaborated with Jigsaw Controls on a project that saw the need for a standalone gas detector transmitter in an ATEX zone 1 potentially flammable atmosphere. Jigsaw Controls client required a continuous gas monitor to detect for methane and hydrogen sulphide in habitat shelters. IGD’s solution was to provide our advanced TOCSIN 903-X5 dual gas detector transmitter in this area, allowing for safe working in an environment that would otherwise be hazardous.

IGD are happy to announce that we are now approved to the BS EN 61010 and UL 61010 standards for our 750 series of control panels and gas detectors. This standard ensures clients will not be subject to any hazards caused by electronic equipment, such as electric shock or burn and radiation when using our system. Thus, supplying clients with the highest standard of safety for their gas detection solution. Read on below to find out more about this standard.
Addressable is often seen as being complex; this is a common myth and does not match up to the simplicity of the system and plethora of benefits that addressable gas detectors can offer. This article explores these features and benefits of addressable gas detection, in particular with IGD, demonstrating how we can enhance your safety with detectably better addressable gas detectors.

Benzene is a colourless chemical with a sweet smell but is highly carcinogenic, making it extremely difficult to detect without specialist equipment. There is a variety of equipment available for detecting benzene and finding the right one is essential. Check out this article to find out more about the different detection methods.
One of our most recent projects includes the implementation of our PID Gas Monitors for a fume extraction company known as Climavent. Their client required these PID detectors in their fume extraction systems to check the state of the carbon filters. Issues with current devices led to the widely successful implementation of IGD’s PID gas monitors, improving the safety of their team, and opening the doors for further opportunities to enhance Climavents gas safety. Read on below for more detail about how the Climavent team became detectably better in their gas safety.
Photoionization detectors (PID) are instruments used to identify volatile organic compounds (VOCs) accurately. The umbrella term of VOCs encompasses numerous gases and vapours, and the PID detector can detect more than 700 of them. This blog post will examine why PID detection is important for the petrochemical industry.
In this article we debunk the common question of whether an O2 Gas Detector is a viable substitute for CO2 detectors in CO2 hazards. Click to find out more.
