Renting Gas Monitors: An Ideal Option for Short-Term Needs

For short-term gas detection needs, renting is a great choice. If you only need a gas detector for a short time, there is no need to pay a large, upfront capital expense and then also pay to maintain the assets all year long.


Renting gas detection equipment is also ideal for:

  • Project and Contract Work: From a few days to a few months, short-term projects require an influx of gas detection equipment to keep your workforce safe. Maybe your short-term project requires monitoring for a specific gas and you don’t have a corresponding sensor installed in your gas detectors. Some sensors are expensive to purchase and maintain, so consider renting.
  • Trial Periods: In the market to purchase gas detectors? Try before you buy so you can ensure that the monitor will meet your long-term needs and be worth the investment. Rent first and see how gas detection equipment works for you before you invest.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of gas monitor rental do I need?
If your team is working in an oil refinery, you'll need to configure your gas detector rentals accordingly -- but your gas detector rental will need a different set of sensors if you're working in a paper mill. The same goes for chemical plants. However, for many types of jobs, a standard four-gas monitor like the Ventis® MX4 is an excellent starting point. When you rent a gas monitor like this one, you'll have the protection you need against atmospheric hazards, no matter where your project takes you.
How quickly can I receive my gas detector rental?
In most cases, the gas detectors rental can be readied and delivered the very next day. This is ideal for shutdowns that may arise immediately. You don’t need to delay the job or sacrifice worker safety if rentals arrive to your facility as soon as you need them.
How long can I rent gas monitors?
You can’t always predict how long you’ll need spare gas detector rentals. Projects can last anywhere from a few days to months and your plans might change as the project progresses. For that, you need a flexible timeline to ensure that your workers are always protected. Our gas detector rental program is extremely flexible, with weekly and monthly rental options that you can extend as needed.
What should I look for in a gas detector rental?

When your team is jumping into a special project, especially an unexpected one, their time is valuable.

Be sure to rent gas monitors that arrive pre-calibrated and come with calibration certificates so you can count on their accuracy without adding another task to anyone’s to-do list. Some personal and area monitors can easily connect to one another for peer alarm sharing and live data monitoring without IT setup so that your workers can clock in knowing their gas detectors are ready to go.

Can I rent gas monitors with connectivity and live monitoring?

Yes! You can (and should) take safety past the baseline, even when renting. The best way is through connected safety solutions. These solutions go beyond basic gas detection, using sensors and devices to monitor people and worksites in real time. Industrial Scientific’s connected solution uses live and historical data from gas detectors to increase worker safety, improve productivity, and drive operational improvements.

Connected safety gas monitors and live monitoring software available for rent are ideal for monitoring lone workers, remotely monitoring an area in real time, connecting teams – especially those working in confined spaces, and of course during shutdowns and turnarounds when there are more people on site to keep track of.  

Some connected safety solutions require extensive IT involvement during setup, which defeats the purpose of a quick solution to enhance safety through a gas detector rental. Look for a connected safety rental option that’s easy to set up and can connect to your existing infrastructure. Equipment that can connect using multiple platforms will make it easier to integrate into your existing network and can also provide a “fail safe” alternative in case one of the platforms loses signal.

As for support, renting connected technical equipment requires a high level of product knowledge. Rental suppliers need a strong background in gas detection to supply you with the best gas detector for the job. Before you rent, find out if the rental supplier has the technical knowledge needed to support you.

Beyond that, ask your rental supplier of they can ship personal gas detectors and area monitors that are pre-connected to each other, reducing your setup time.
