The Bhopal disaster, also referred to as the Bhopal gas tragedy, was a gas leak incident on the night of 2–3 December 1984 at the Union Carbide India Limited pesticide plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. It is considered to be the world's worst industrial disaster.
The impact of Gas leak tragedies can impact not only the persons involved but future generations as well.
Gas leak accidents can occur in both residential & commercial levels.
Safeguarding premises with gas leak detectors & gas detection systems is of utmost importance thus ensuring wellbeing of our people.
Vighnaharta Technologies manufactures affordable Commercial, Industrial & Residential Gas detection systems.
What’s more ! They are safe, Made In India products.
A: TS230HLB is Standalone Type. TS12HLRB can be integrated with Home Automation & Security System provided that these systems have NO & NC contacts.
A: Detector is Auto Resettable.
A: The performance of Gas Leak Detector is not measured in terms of range. When gas leaks & the gas particles reach the sensor & when concentration reaches 10% of LEL, warning is given. Hence, we recommend to position or place this device as close as possible to the gas source.
A: Fully battery-operated Gas Leak Detectors are not available anywhere in the world. Reason being the current consumed by such device/ detector/ sensor would drain the standard battery within 6-7 days. Hence, it is not practical to keep replacing the batteries after every 7 days. We do not supply battery operated gas leak detector. However, we do have model with rechargeable battery backup. In case of power failure this detector with rechargeable battery will switch to battery mode.
A: No. It is not dangerous to have an electrical socket near the gas source. In any typical kitchen there are several electrical home appliances which operate on electricity when connected to the electrical socket like Mixer, Grinder, Fridge, Oven etc. In case of leakage of gas & gas concentration reaching LEL then somebody might switch the power ON/OFF, the spark which happens at the switch contact might cause fire. Our detector gives warning much ahead of dangerous level. Also, no switching happens inside the circuit as the circuit is solid state. Hence, it’s not dangerous to have an electrical socket near the gas source.
A: Life of the sensor inside Gas Leak Detector is 2-3 years. We recommend replacing the gas leak detector after 2 years of use.
A: The best location to fix is near the Gas Cylinder or near the pipeline in case of piped gas connection. In case of LPG, for best results it would be advisable to fit it on the fascia of Kitchen Platform cabinets. TrueSafe has provision of louvers on the front and the back. Gas can leak either near Cylinder/Pipe or the Gas Stove. Someone may forget to light the gas after turning ON the Gas Stove knob or flame can extinguish while cooking. In such case LPG shall settle down because it is heavier than the air and enter the detector from the front louvers. Gas leaking from the Cylinder can enter from the louvers at the back. In case of Piped Natural Gas (PNG) detector must be fitted near ceiling.
A: With our optional gas shut-off valve, the gas can be turned off automatically. This is important if there is not likely to be a competent person around - for example if there is only a confused or elderly person present.
A: Each type of gas has its own unique chemical composition. It is this composition that the detector focuses on to detect the presence of gas. Sensors within the detector must be designed specifically for a gas. Hence a different detector is needed for each different type of gas.
A:Yes, all detectors come with relays that can be used to trigger remote alarms or monitoring systems. A: We recommend the use of a remote alarm sounder. This can be placed outside the room and will warn people of dangerous levels of gas. We recommend a notice is placed near there to instruct people what to do if the alarm sounds.
A: There is NO ABSOLUTE RULE in determining the number of gas sensors and their location. However, there are a few simple guidelines, which will help you to plan. Keep in mind that sensors monitor a point as opposed to an area. If the gas leak does not reach the sensor then no alarm will be raised. Therefore, it is extremely important to carefully select the sensor location. There are two approaches to gas sensor location: perimeter protection or point detection. With perimeter detection you place sensors all around the perimeter of the space in question to make sure you monitor the whole space. This is North, South, East and West. With point detection you locate a sensor at a position where you are concerned about a leak e.g. compressors, expansion valves, mechanical joints, or cable duct trenches. Locate the sensors no farther than 1.5m from the potential “leak source”.
A: TrueSafe is type tested from two reputed Govt Labs, namely SAMEER & ARAI. We have obtained test certificates which entitle us to put CE mark on our product. CE Mark is a European Safety norm. Test certificates could be made available upon request.
