Crowcon’s Gas-Pro portable gas detector is designed to give you flexibility when you want to monitor more than the standard four gases: hydrogen sulphide, carbon monoxide, flammable gases, and oxygen.

Gas-Pro is also ideal for use in Confined Space Entry (CSE), with a unique feature that will walk you through CSE to ensure maximum safety when entering confined spaces, when taken with the optional internal pump. It’s robust, reliable, and simple to use with a bright, easy to read display and long battery life.

Working in confined or enclosed spaces is associated with elevated risks from exposure to dangerous gases, both toxic and explosive.  Gas-Pro has a number of special features specifically designed to protect workers in confined spaces from these gas hazards. 

  • Automated pre-entry check function. This is recorded in the event log making it traceable and proving the check was carried out prior to CSE.  Pre-entry check gas levels are automatically excluded from the Time-Weighted Average (TWA) calculations, ensuring that the detector logs are accurate. 
  • An internal pump allows pre-entry testing to be done quickly and easily. This also keeps the size of the detector small, and removes the problems of poor sealing or the need for extra equipment and chargers.
  • Detects up to five hazardous gases from a wide range, including carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and flammable gases, as well as industry-specific gases such as ozone, ammonia, chlorine, chlorine dioxide and sulphur dioxide.  The ATEX-approved carbon dioxide IR sensor provided improved cost of ownership over other carbon dioxide sensor technologies.
  • Compact and comparable in size to leading front-mount diffusion detectors, so it won’t get in the way of other personal protection equipment (PPE) nor interfere with your primary activity.
  • Bright, clear top-mount display that can be read at a glance without having to even touch the detector. A dual colour backlight adds an extra level of alert should Gas-Pro enter alarm status.
  • Positive Safety is a tri-colour status indicator allowing quick and effective monitoring of gas test (bump), calibration, over range, and recent alarm notification. Because the indicator light is visible too, it offers the fleet manager a quick, simple and comprehensive visible indication of monitor status.
  • Extremely rugged with IP65 and IP67 ingress protection, with an extremely loud >95 dB alarm as well as a vibrating and dual colour visual warnings as standard.

Gas-Pro is therefore ideally suited for CSE work, meaning you can focus on your core activities.

According to the UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) a confined space means ‘any place, including any chamber, tank, vat, silo, pit, trench, pipe, sewer, flue, well or other similar space in which, by virtue of its enclosed nature, there arises a reasonably foreseeable risk’.

This definition covers just about any industrial activity but is especially applicable to the utilities industries (water and wastewater, electricity, telecommunications and gas), construction, hydrocarbon exploration and processing, petrochemicals, marine applications, agriculture, food processing, wine making and brewing, as well as emergency services.
