Fire & Hazmat Applications
mPower Electronics provides a variety of gas detection monitors to help emergency response, fire and hazmat teams identify the presence of toxic chemicals and combustible materials. Hazmat teams need broadband meters like our NEO photo-ionization detectors (PIDs) and multi-gas meters like our POLI 4- and 5-gas meters because they often cannot tell in advance what specific chemical hazards to expect. During an active fire, our multi-gas meters with carbon monoxide (CO), LEL and oxygen (O2) sensors protect firefighters from immediate life-threatening hazards. During arson investigation, ppb-sensitive PIDs like the NEO have proven useful in detecting residual accelerants to identify the source of a fire.
