Gas-Pro: The Confined Space Entry Monitor
10 October 2016
Safe confined space entry (CSE) requires careful application of the procedures and use of specialist equipment. However, the gas detector used is often not specially designed for the task. Crowcon Gas-Pro has features designed to make CSE easier.
Working in confined spaces can be dangerous. By its nature, a confined space prevents air being circulated. Asphyxiation due to low oxygen levels is a recognised danger. Also, hazardous gases may be trapped rather than being dispersed and diluted into the atmosphere.
When entering a confined space, it is critical that you carry out a thorough pre-entry check. Gas-Pro Pre-Entry Check Mode is designed to guide you through the process of checking for hazardous gases, helping to ensure you get it right. Attaching the flow plate automatically starts the pump#, making life even easier.
When Crowcon carried out intensive market research to find out what features should be included in an ‘ideal’ CSE gas detector, Gas-Pro was the result. Gas-Pro is designed to suit CSE applications and comply with hazardous area and health & safety standards.
While the best advice is to avoid entering confined spaces if at all possible, this is not always an option. There are always occasions when you or your team need to enter confined spaces to carry out inspections, routine maintenance, perform emergency repairs or effect rescues.
Unlike Gas-Pro, many multigas portable detectors are optimised for leak location or ‘hot work’ permit issue, rather than being suitable for CSE work.
Features that make Gas-Pro ideal for confined space work include:
• Pre-Entry Check Mode: Walks you through the process of checking a confined space for hazardous gas conditions before you enter
• Internal pump (optional)#: automatically activated when the flow plate is attached, takes the pain out of pre-entry testing and allows Gas-Pro to be worn either in pumped or diffusion modes
