Gas Sensors – Make it available for one and all

We usually come across incidents where we understand that a mistake could be corrected if it was taken care of at the proper time. Recently, a steel plant at Rourkela caught fire at a coal injection unit in a blast furnace. Some of the workers were injured and were rushed to the hospital with 30% to 40% burns.

What took place was a mere case of unawareness. It seems that the fire broke out when a gust of hot air was blown out in the blast furnace. Had they installed a gas sensor, the incident could have been avoided. The gas sensor would have intimated about the gas leak and would have helped saving lot of lives in return.

Looking at the recent gas leak incident, it is high time that we spread awareness about gas sensors at grass root level. People in the urban areas are well versed with everything but people in the rural areas are yet to experience the miracles technology has to offer.

The coal injection unit has high chances of catching a fire. Had it been in the urban areas we would have already taken precautions for the same but as it’s in the rural side, things are yet to be changed there. There the people are not familiar with most of the things.

We should carry out small exhibitions and educate them about products like gas sensors so that they come to know its importance and act accordingly. A gas sensor is anytime beneficial. It has proven its worth time and again. Many dangerous incidents have been brought to notice and avoided due to gas sensors.

Gas is a domestic appliance and needs to be used in our dayto day living. Incidents that are unexpected do take place as things cannot be presumed. Due to these reasons it is important that we install a gas sensor to avoid mishaps. And anyways installing a gas sensor wouldn’t do any harm. So better be safe than sorry.
