During the processing of cannabis, butane, ethanol and other substances are used – many of which are toxic and highly flammable. Carbon dioxide (CO2), which is toxic and can cause asphyxiation, is another common hazard coming from cylinders or gas-burning generators. Not only do these hazards pose safety risks, they can stop production in its tracks.

As a world leader in safety solutions, Dräger can help you protect your people and your facilities – so you can focus on your core business. Continuous monitoring of toxic, flammable and explosive substances throughout the facility is essential.

But what’s the best solution for your operation? With decades of experience in the manufacturing of gas detection equipment, you can trust us for the right answer.
