Hydrogen Detection Systems

H2 gas is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas.  This type of gas is commonly seen in applications involving alternate fuel vehicles, coolants, engineering and car manufacturers. Hazards may include possible detonation and fire and can be deterred with the help of a Hydrogen detector.

Our Hydrogen sensors are not only portable and light weight, but also robust and extremely reliable.

Product Information

Gas detection equipment can take many forms from portable to fixed detectors, and sample systems which enable hydrogen detection to occur without a person having to enter the area being monitored.

How do you detect and measure Hydrogen?


Until now, the only option has been Pellistor detection, with limitations around accuracy and more susceptible to poisoning. Now, The MPS™ sensor is tailor-made for Hydrogen detection. With the MPS™ sensor, only one device is needed saving space without compromising on safety.

Where is Hydrogen found?

Hydrogen is non-toxic, but in indoor environments like battery storage rooms, hydrogen may build up and cause asphyxiation by displacing oxygen. This danger can be offset to some extent by adding odorants to hydrogen fuel, giving it an artificial smell and alerting users in case of a leak. But as hydrogen disperses quickly, the odorant is unlikely to travel with it. Hydrogen leaking indoors quickly collects, initially at ceiling level and eventually fills up the room. Therefore, the placement of gas detectors is key in early detection of a hydrogen leak.

There are several types of sensors used for gas detection. The choice of gas sensor depends on:

    What the purpose of detection is
    Whether the gas detector is fixed or portable
    Whether the detector is point or open path
    The expected range of concentration
    The presence of other gases that may affect readings or damage the sensor
