Gasman- Portable Gas Detection Equipment

When lives and property are at risk and you need gas detection equipment that is totally reliable, you need Crowcon. For over 40 years Crowcon has been developing and manufacturing high quality products with a reputation for reliability and technical innovation.

Crowcon provide both single gas and multigas monitors for personal monitoring and portable safety applications providing protection against a wide range of industrial gas hazards.

Choosing the portable gas detector for your needs

Gasman is a range of rugged, compact single gas personal monitors designed for use in the toughest environments.

With rugged impact resistant construction and compliance to IP65, Gasman offers a wide range of gases, including six flammable calibration options. Gasman gives an unbeatable combination of powerful loud and bright alarms. Its stunningly compact and lightweight design makes it ideal for use in industries such as oil and gas, chemical, steel works and waste and water works.

Gasman is small, light and easy to use. Weighing just 130g, it is extremely durable, with high impact resistance and dust/water ingress protection to IP65. When potentially hazardous levels of gas are detected, the Gasman alerts the user with a loud 95 dB alarm, a vivid red/ blue visual warning and also by vibrating.

Gasman features simple, single-button control and has an easy-to-read, backlit LCD display to ensure clear viewing of gas level readings, alarm conditions and battery life. Data and event logging are available as standard, and there is a builtin 30 day advance warning when calibration is due.

*Operating time will depend on operating pattern and alarm occurrence. Frequent or long lasting alarms and use of the optional confidence beep will reduce battery life.
**Toxic and oxygen sensors are not rated for continuous operation at high temperatures. Consult Crowcon if operating temperatures are likely to exceed 40OC (104OF) for extended periods.
