H2S, or hydrogen sulfide, is a colorless, flammable gas that is present in several applications usually identified by its “rotten egg” odor. H2S is commonly found in the oil and gas and waste management industries. In the oil and gas industry, the gas becomes present during drilling. Hydrogen sulfide will leak from the drilling equipment during the extraction process. In the waste management industry, H2S gas comes from the breaking down of organic material. With the gas detection equipment offered by DOD Technologies, you can detect H2S at low levels to prevent explosions and the symptoms of exposure.

The value of having the right products for H2S gas lies in understanding your industry. While fixed gas monitors can provide reliable detection of a stationary point, portable gas detectors provide workers with continuous protection in their immediate vicinity. In wastewater treatment and oil & gas applications, the need for portable gas monitors is increasing with workers needing to move freely from place to place and often times outdoors. 

However, fixed units are still effective for fence-line monitoring and protection of electrical equipment. DOD Technologies fixed colorimetric equipment is extremely effective in the detection of H2S for wastewater treatment, protecting computers and other electronic components if they are exposed to H2S at low levels for long periods of time. Not only does it preserve the health and safety of your employees, but extends and protects your equipment while reducing operational costs over time. 

Our portable gas detectors, the CLPX, Four Gas Monitor, and Single Gas Monitor, provide the best protection in these industries due to their low detection levels and their portability. If you work in either of these industries it is important to take note of the OSHA standards of PELs. Also, be sure to work with your employer to ensure your safety is the number one priority.

DOD Technologies values the safety of all personnel and work environments by offering a variety of portable and fixed gas detection systems for your needs.
