Why Use H2 Fuel for LFL Analyzers?

There are technologies available that will measure % LFL levels that require no fuel. On a first approach this may seem like a nice solution, as there are no utilities needed and the safety requirements don’t have to be considered. So, why is it important to use a fueled analyzer when measuring gas concentrations?

Here are some reasons to consider:

Hydrogen's Proven Track Record

Many companies are concerned about the use of Hydrogen in their plant to operate LFL Analyzers. But did you know that Hydrogen has been used commercially for many years? Commercially, it is found that the safety record for hydrogen is excellent; there is no evidence to suggest that hydrogen is any more dangerous than other fuels of similar energy content.

Some of the current uses include:
