Gas detectors for keeping workers safe

Many hazards cannot be detected by human senses: toxic gases, oxygen deficiency, combustible gases and vapours. All these hazards pose a serious threat to human life and plant safety in many branches of industry. Portable gas detectors alert a worker early and increase occupational safety.

When it comes to reliable gas detection, you can trust on portable gas detectors from Dräger. We have more than 70 years’ experience in this technology and offer a full range from reliable gas detectors, stations for calibration and bump testing, as well as software solutions, helpful system components, and accessories.

Single-gas detectors

If the danger of toxic gases or vapours can be narrowed down to a single gas or leading substance, single-gas measuring and warning devices are the ideal solution for personal monitoring in the workplace. Our single-gas detectors are small, robust, and ergonomic. See our highlight products:
