First response encounters hazardous gases that need to be identified quickly. Gasmet manufactures portable and powerful gas analyzers for these crucial measurements. Measure a vast variety of gases simultaneously, on-site. Read about our solutions for First Response!

First Response Encounter the Unexpected

Accidents involving chemicals and other hazardous materials (HAZMAT) require fast and accurate gas measurements as part of the first response. Accidents are by nature unexpected and unpredictable, so the equipment used for the first response in these situations should be flexible enough to work in a wide variety of different scenarios. CBRN Units that are tasked with protecting the public from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats also need similar solutions for identifying and mitigating chemical threats. Gases like formaldehyde, toluene, ammonia and arsine can pose a serious threat to the health. As it is not always possible to know beforehand what you may encounter in HAZMAT situations, there is a need for both identification of gases and quantification of them.

Immediate Results Cost-efficiently

Traditionally analyzing an unknown sample has required sampling followed by time-consuming and expensive laboratory analysis. However, sometimes the situation requires quick decisions and there is no time to wait for results from a laboratory before taking action. A portable analyzer that can give laboratory-grade results can therefore be a crucial tool for first responders, helping them make informed decisions on the field.

Portable Gas Analyzer for Hazardous Gases

Gasmet portable FTIR analyzers are the ideal tool for this job. They offer the capability to measure a wide variety of gases and results can be viewed online. The technology also enables the identification of unknown gases in the sample, which is crucial in both HAZMAT and CBRN situations where it is impossible to know beforehand exactly what the responders may encounter. GT5000 Terra that are designed for demanding, portable on-field use, answer to the needs of first responders.
