  • CO, CO2 and gas leak detection

    Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless and taste-free gas, but it is also poisonous. Its sources include the incomplete combustion of substances containing carbon, such as oil, gas and solid fuels. The hazardous nature of this gas means that it is necessary to regularly check CO emissions at combustion points of heating systems, and places often frequented by people and in the surrounding areas.
    Carbon dioxide concentration is considered to be a primary indicator of "good" indoor air quality. Bad air quality due to a concentrations of CO2 which is too high causes tiredness and lack of concentration and can even bring about illnesses. Therefore should the CO2 concentration generally not exceed 1,000 ppm. Values of 700 to 1,500 ppm can be viewed as the "reference range".
