Highly rated MSA gas detectors include the Gassonic Observer-i Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detector, UltraSonic IS-5 Gas Leak Detector, Ultima OPIR-5 Open Path Infared Detector, TRIGARD Gas Monitoring System and the TriGas Monitoring System. The Mine Safety Appliances Company builds gas detectors to detect potential gas leaks and alert nearby people.
Investing in a highly rated MSA gas detector prevents potentially life-threatening gas inhalation. Over-exposure to gas can cause vomiting with or without blood, dizziness, vision loss, difficulty breathing and burning throat pain. In some extreme cases, gas exposure can lead to loss of consciousness and even death, in some instances.
