When discussing hazardous gas detection, the first thing that may come to mind is the image of the canary going down into the mine. Fortunately, the current state-of-the-art is much more sophisticated; however, there is yet no “perfect” gas detector. Perfect is defined as responding immediately, extremely accurate, repeatable, specific or nonspecific (as needed), and inexpensive. In this course we will discuss first the theory of gas detection and then the practical application of gas detection.
Course Length: 1 hour
