Electrical apparatus used for the direct 45544- and direct concentration measurement of toxic gases and vapours General requirements and test methods BS EN A key part of ensuring adequate performance is maintained during the working life of the detector is for the user to regularly test and maintain it. Dec 10 Read Factors affecting the choice of VOC sensor.
These help to reassure and guide the user by setting a minimum standard so that practitioners can choose a suitable and reliable detector that is fit for purpose, and use it effectively throughout its working life.
Electrical apparatus used for the direct detection and direct concentration measurement of toxic gases and vapours Performance requirements for apparatus used for general gas detection BS EN Electrical apparatus used for the direct detection and direct concentration measurement of toxic gases and vapours. Toxic gas detectors for exposure measurements have more stringent requirements: Typically, instantaneous alarms are used to warn against short term acute exposure to a dangerous concentration of toxic gas i.
Testing and monitoring the atmosphere should be considered when designing a safe system of work for a confined space, which may form the basis of a permit to work; the atmosphere may need to be tested for the presence of hazardous gas or deficiency of oxygen; and regular monitoring may be necessary, typically using portable including personal gas detectors which provide alarms.
While these tolerances may initially seem generous, it should be borne in mind that a they are the sum of uncertainties derived from 13 tests; and b variation of exposure to chemical agents in the workplace can be significantly greater than indicated by the uncertainty of a single measurement calculated according to ENdue to the temporal and spatial variability of ne exposure.
Performance requirements Parts The performance requirements for gas detectors depend on the purpose for which they are used.

Nov 20 Read Performance requirements dn apparatus used for exposure measurements. The revised standard also illustrates through diagrams the effect of gas concentration on the time of response and time to alarm: The results of these checks should be recorded and any remedial action should be completed and verified prior to use.
