Gas Controls

Electronic gas detection technologies have made it possible to quickly and easily detect even the smallest and insignificant gas concentrations.


However, the detection of very small amounts of gas, which are well below the maximum limits specified by the industry safety standards, can create confusion for service technicians and inspectors in the field while creating unnecessary re-work and replacement costs for control and appliance manufacturers and consumers.

This video will outline:

  • The gas industry’s safety standards regarding, “allowable” leakage rates for gas controls.
  • The appliance manufacturers’ required testing of controls and appliances.
  • The use of electronic gas detection devices (commonly called "leak" detectors), and
  • Proper leak detection demonstrations on various appliances and controls.

Please take a few minutes to watch this important video and familiarize yourself with the practical guidelines for identifying gas leaks.
