How to Maintain Carbon Monoxide Gas Detector?


Carbon monoxide is the most commonly-seen toxic gas in daily life and work. As a color-less, odor-less gas without a pungent gas, CO, if whose concentration exceeds the upper limit, might cause poisoning. If the poisoning is not serious, you might have symptoms such as headache, dizziness, palpitation, weakness of limbs, nausea, etc. If the poisoning is serious, you might suffer loss of your consciousness, or fall into a deep coma or even become in a persistent vegetative state. More seriously, CO poisoning might cause death.


Therefore, when CO appears, we need the carbon monoxide gas detector, a simple gas detector specially designed for detection of CO and an indispensable instrument in our life. When the CO concentration reaches the alarm level, the gas detector might raise a sound-light alarm, and we should immediately adopt measures to avoid occurrence of fire disasters, explosions, poisoning and other malicious events.


With the passage of time and expiration of the instrument’s service life, the performance will inevitably decline. Thus, daily maintenance can help lengthen the service life of corbon monoxide gas detector.


Periodical inspection of the CO gas detector: Since harsh environmental conditions and long-term use can cause damage of the sensor, it is necessary to periodically check the carbon monoxide gas detector and put down the inspection data. Meanwhile, when the sensor is damaged or expired, a new one should be adopted.


The instrument should be stored at a moderate temperature. The CO gas detector should be stored at the temperature of -10℃ to 55℃. Periodical inspection is required to clarify whether the CO gas detector has water inlet or got dampened and whether there is accumulated dust on the surface. (If the gas detector is left unused for a long time, there will be dust on the surface. If the dust is left not removed, the usage and sensitivity of the alarm will be seriously influenced.) Additionally, the gas detector should be prevented from falling from a higher place or suffer dramatic vibrations. Last but not least, the gas detector should not work in an environment with a high concentration of corrosive gases.
