The gas sensors are designed to detect, quantify and classify an array of flammable or explosive gases using a single calibration. The three sensors can detect flammable, methane and low global warming (LGW) refrigerant gases. This allows the sensors to work in HVAC refrigerants, value and gasket monitoring, mining, public safety, oil and gas processing and industrial safety.

The sensors will not poison or stop working when exposed to common industrial chemicals, allowing for less frequent manual calibrations and higher reliability for a safer workplace, NevadaNano said.
