Catalytic sensors: Home natural gas alarm sensor
Natural and other combustible gasses in your home are often a necessity but using them safely requires both knowledge and care. Gas companies often include a sulfur-based compound in their gas supply so leaks are easier to smell and detect, but other measures should be taken, such as installing natural gas alarms, to provide proper warning.
The two most popular methods of combustible gas detection are through the use of infrared and catalytic sensors, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Catalytic sensors are less susceptible to interference from dust and dirt, can detect most hydrocarbons and hydrogen, and humidity, condensation, pressure, or temperature do not affect them. Catalytic sensor is the first choice for home combustible gas alarm.
