Gas Type: Oxygen

O2 Gas Sensor Solutions

How is Oxygen (O2) Gas Detected?

Oxygen is usually detected by the use of gas sensors. These sensors commonly are found utilizing electrochemical (EC) technology at their core.

Electrochemical sensors are able to detect oxygen by coupling a chemical selective layer (the recognition of an element) to an electrochemical transducer. 

What are the hazards of using Oxygen (O2)?

Using oxygen in high concentrations can create risks and asphyxiation can occur without proper O2 safety monitors. For example, breathing pure Oxygen at high pressures can cause nausea, dizziness, muscle twitching, vision loss, convulsions, and loss of consciousness.

What are 5 common uses for Oxygen?

  1. MRI Rooms
  2. Modified Atmosphere Packaging
  3. MIG and TIG Welding
  4. Cold Storage and Refrigeration
  5. Scientific Research and Laboratory

What are the benefits of using an O2 gas detector?

  1. Using an O2 gas detector ensures safety in confined spaces with limited entry and the potential for oxygen depletion to occur. 
  2. O2 gas detectors prevent asphyxiation from occurring and safe guard individuals who work around gases such as nitrogen, helium, argon, chlorine, ammonia, and helium.
  3. O2 gas detectors help ensure safety and compliance by specific regulatory agencies like the Compressed Gas Association, and others. 
  4. O2 gas detectors are used to ensure that the oxygen levels are within the desired range for patient safety and to prevent potential fire hazards.
