Gas Safety Alarms
HI Series Gas/Safety Alarm System
The Hesco Gas Safety Alarm (HI-2000-S) continuously monitors your environment and rapidly detects an explosive or toxic gas build up. Included in the gases the HI-2000-S will detect are: carbon monoxide, propane/LP, natural gas/methane. The Hesco HI-2000-S sounds an audible alarm to warn you before there is serious danger. A special feature of the Hesco HI-2000-S is that is continuously self-checking to assure fault-free and reliable protection for you. An intermittent, audible chirp will alert you to a malfunctioning unit.
Location & Placement:
Where to locate the Hesco Gas Safety Alarm:
For the detection of specific gases, your gas detector should be placed as follows:
CARBON MONOXIDE detection:
For detection of Carbon Monoxide, the Hesco HI-2000-S should be placed one foot below the ceiling on the side wall. Location of the HI-2000-S in approximately the same general area as a smoke detector will provide protection from Carbon Monoxide build-up. Avoid placing the HI-2000-S in corners and dead air spaces.
PROPANE (LP) detection:
For detection of Propane (LP) gas, the Hesco HI-2000-S unit should be placed in the area where the Propane (LP) is being used. The HI-2000-S should be placed NO MORE THAN 8 inches off the floor and BELOW ANY POSSIBLE IGNITION SOURCE. NOTE: Propane (LP) Gas is heavier than air and will puddle in the lowest possible area.
NATURAL GAS (METHANE) detection:
For detection of Natural Gas (Methane), the Hesco HI-2000-S unit should be placed in the area where Natural Gas (Methane) is being used. The HI-2000-S should be placed one foot (1′) from the ceiling on the side wall. NOTE: Natural Gas (Methane) is lighter than air and will rise.
Additional points to keep in mind when determining the best location for the Hesco HI-2000-S:
- Avoid areas of strong draft.
- Avoid areas where water may come in contact with sensor.
- Avoid areas where stacks of boxes, etc., may block normal air flow to the HI-2000-S.
- Remember the HI-2000-S should be located within six feet of a normal electrical outlet.
