Propane Gas Detector Singapore
Propane (C3H8) is colourless gas found in the natural gas and petroleum and it is widely used as a fuel for heating in the house, fuel for boat & marine. Propane can be flammable when mixed with oxygen and can ignite when with open flames, electrical sparks, static electricity or smoking materials.

- Smell like garbage, sewage or dead animal may be a serious gas leak.
- A hissing noise near a gas pipe and appliances or cylinder tank.
- Foul odour persists.
The three different ways to test for a gas leak include:
- propane gas detectors
- the sniff test
- the bubble test
Limits of flammability of Propane
- 2.15% gas – Lower Explosive or Flammable Limit
- 9.6% gas – Upper Explosive or Flammable Limit
Functions of the Propane Gas Detector
It is important to note that the function of Propane Gas Detector is only an aid to detect any leakage. You are always responsible for ensuring your own safety If you smell any gas leaking near your propane appliance, even if your gas detector is not sounding an alarm.
A high concentration of propane can displace oxygen in the air. If there is a lower level of oxygen available to breathe, symptoms such as rapid heart rate, clumsiness, emotional upsets and fatigue can result. As less oxygen becomes available, nausea and vomiting, collapse, convulsions, coma and even death can happen.
Portable Propane Gas Detector
This highly reliable Propane Gas Detector is ideal for industrial uses such as in plant maintenance and furnace. This reliable and simple to use portable unit is quick in locating gas leaks. Capable of detecting both propane and methane to high accuracy. In addition, it automatically calibrates itself at power on and is ready to use in less than 60 seconds. With its 447mm probe and rapid response time (<10sec) makes finding leaks in difficult environments easy.
A 5-level LED leak alarm and audible beep mean you are constantly updated on the level of gas detected. As a combustible gas or vapour source is approached, an audible signal (ticking sound) increases in frequency and the red lights illuminate in sequence, to show the intensity of the leak. Leak size is indicated by increasing LED lights and ticking sound. The larger combustible concentration the more light will lit up and the faster the ticking will be heard.
The advantage of having this device is that it comes with a headphone jack so you never miss a beep in a busy or noisy environment and a mute function when u want to use just the LED leak alarm.
