Gas detection technology is constantly evolving. We have come a long way from a canary in a cage or a flame lamp. Today’s gas detectors not only have better sensing technology, but are equipped with the wireless technology that will enable the workforce of the future, making people safer and more productive. Industrial Scientific strives to provide a complete integrated solution for gas detection that allows you to choose the right mix of equipment, software, and services that help your workers go home safely at the end of the day.
Gas detectors (or gas monitors) are critical pieces of safety equipment used to protect life and property. Using visual and audible alarms, they warn users of atmospheric hazards including dangerous levels of toxic and explosive gases and low oxygen levels. Personal and area gas detectors offer a trustworthy solution for any application.
Using sensor technology, gas detectors measure and display the concentration of gases in the air. When a gas reading reaches a certain level, the gas detector begins to alarm. Gas detectors prevent harmful exposure to hazardous gases in a range of industrial applications. Detectors are available in multiple configurations, ranging from a single gas setup to a multifunctional or multi-gas configuration. The most common and most practical gas detectors are capable of detecting several gases at once. Some gas detectors can function as an individual unit for smaller applications. Alternatively, some gas detectors can be linked together to create a wider protective system that can interact with software to provide a live monitoring solution.
Founded in 1985, with deep roots in the mining industry, Industrial Scientific has grown to become a world leader in providing gas detection products and services. The company helps to keep thousands of workers safe in hazardous environments across the globe.
While most of our competitors offer a range of workplace safety products, Industrial Scientific is focused on gas detection products, services and connected worker solutions. This focus enables Industrial Scientific to develop innovative and market-leading offerings..
Industrial Scientific’s line of gas monitoring products and services are used in virtually every industry to protect people from exposure to harmful gases. Industrial Scientific has invested in several outside ventures to expand the potential of workplace safety and gas detection products. These investments, and the ongoing innovations of Industrial Scientific, are all in an effort to end work-related deaths by the year 2050.
The organizational culture of Industrial Scientific drives how we conduct business. We truly believe that our efforts save lives and that every employee has an understanding of how their work serves a higher purpose. This motivation is a catalyst for innovation and drives the organization toward ensuring that workers return home safely at the end of their work day.
Your gas detection and other monitoring equipment requires regular maintenance to ensure that it is producing accurate readings. If your equipment is not properly maintained, your workers may be unknowingly exposed to toxic or oxygen-deficient atmospheres, which can lead to injury or even death. Industrial Scientific recommends daily bump testing and monthly calibration of your gas detection equipment. Our docking stations and calibration gas help to ensure that your equipment is functioning within required standards and provide documentation for your records.

Selecting the right gas detectors and equipment is a critical part of making sure your teams go home safely to their families. In addition to cost, consider reliability, durability, and usability of the equipment.
Industrial Scientific will not only help you purchase the right gas detectors and supplies, but we also have leasing, rental and certified pre-owned options to help make your decision even easier. Please contact us for additional information on which option will best suit your organizational needs.
