Coal and Steel Industries

The gas detection industry has its’ origins in mining. GfG was the first company to produce an electronic gas detector for detection of methane in mines way back in 1961.

Modern mining has very strict regulations which require the use of portable gas detectors.

Workers in steel plants must wear carbon monoxide detectors at all times as this is a manor hazard in steel production. In addition, blast furnaces must be equipped with hydrogen detection equipment.For leak control, suitable portable gas detectors must be used, to give rapid warning of explosive and toxic gas leaks.
