Gas detectors are widely used in industry and can be found in locations such as oil rigs, to monitor manufacturing processes and emerging technologies such as photovoltaics. Within an industrial process, we find the presence of different types and concentrations of gases (toxic, flammable and asphyxiating), with different levels of danger to the environment and humans. In addition, we also find the interference of numerous external agents such as ventilation, temperature and humidity, which directly affect the behavior and direction of gases and, consequently, the choice of detector.

The gas detection system monitors the level of toxic and flammable gases in a given location and sends the information to a computer integrated in it, thus ensuring greater safety of people and environment involved in the process. This system is of utmost importance and can save countless lives.
