Portable vs. Fixed Gas Detection Systems - Otis Instruments

Portable vs. Fixed Gas Detection Systems

The difference between portable and fixed gas detection systems is their monitoring capabilities and limitations. Portable detection instruments can notify workers of dangerous emissions upon the entry of an affected area, while fixed instruments can provide continuous monitoring of a specific location in a workplace facility.   Although both gas detection systems can help improve workplace…
