Caution when cleaning gas detectors
In times of COVID 19 it is even more important to clean the warning monitors thoroughly! Gas warning monitors are worn within 15 to 23 centimeters of your nose and mouth. Unfortunately, this means that dirt, debris or bacteria attached to the device is now in your breathing zone.
Under no circumstances should alcohol-based disinfectants be used as the alcohol will attack the precision sensors and disable their function.
What are sensor poisons?
Sensor poisons are substances that attach to the pellistor sensor and permanently damage your device.
Inhibitors affect functioning of your device and cause desensitization of the pellistor and shorten its life.
What chemicals and substances are hazardous to the device?
- Household cleaners and lubricants
- Silicone-based agents
- Products containing sulfur compounds
- Inhibitors such as: astatine, bromine, fluorine, chlorine, and iodine
We recommend using bleach powder diluted with water
Four teaspoons of bleach to 1L of water is the correct mixture.
Applied with a cleaning cloth brings the optimal safety.
