Watch, listen and learn how Crowcon, CO gas detection specialists, protect people and plant from the gas risks posed by flammable and toxic gas.

  • Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas produced by the combustion of carbon-based fuels
  • Motors running on petrol, diesel or gas all release CO into the environment
  • CO becomes flammable at 12.5% air by volume
  • CO is a chemical asphyxiant with toxic properties at low levels
  • Portable gas detectors supported by fixed systems are often recommended

cARBON MONOXIDE GAS – 6 symptoms

Unsafe gas appliances produce a highly poisonous gas called carbon monoxide (CO). It can cause death as well as serious long term health problems such as brain damage. Carbon monoxide symptoms are similar to flu, food poisoning, viral infections and simply tiredness. That’s why it’s quite common for people to mistake this very dangerous poisoning for something else.

  1. Headaches
  2. Dizziness
  3. Nausea
  4. Breathlessness
  5. Collapse
  6. Loss of consciousness

You can’t see it, taste it or smell it but it can kill quickly and with no warning. Detect it with Crowcon CO Gas Detectors.

CO Gas Detection, Sensing, Monitoring & Alarming


CoGDEM is the Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring, a trade association with a membership of around sixty companies involved in the gas detection industry.

CoGDEM is recognised as the single representative voice serving the U.K.’s gas detection, analysis and monitoring industries.

In recent years, the true toxicity of CO2 in the workplace has been identified and publicised, including articles in IET by HSE and others. For example, it was common practice in the alcohol brewing and distilling process industry just twenty years ago to monitor oxygen deficiency as the only means of protecting workers from exposure to excessive CO2. However, it had to be pointed out that oxygen levels may only be very slightly depressed by the time a CO2 concentration exceeded Workplace Exposure Limits. In the UK the HSE’s EH40 document shows the WELs for CO2 to be 0.5% (8-hour LTEL) and 1.5% (15-minute STEL). These levels indicate that CO2 is a toxic gas in its own right, not just an asphyxiant when it displaces enough oxygen.

Flame, Heat, Gas Detectors & Detection Systems

ATEX Beacon

Hazardous area industries including offshore oil/gas platforms and FPSOs, onshore oil refineries, processing plants, pipelines, storage farms and LPG/LNG plants all utilise or produce a wide range of hazardous flammable liquids and gases that can be detected using correctly specified flame and gas detectors.

Detecting toxic and flammable gases requires the detectors to be classified and certified according to the specific IECEx or ATEX standard – we distribute flame and fire detectors manufactured by Spectrex to operate in the harshest environmental conditions including self-contained stand-alone devices designed for direct connection to control and alarm systems or automatic fire extinguishing systems.

Our range of Hazardous Area Fire & Gas Detection System products also includes Explosion Proof Warning Systems & Hazardous Area Lighting – comprehensive range of intrinsically safe, flameproof and explosion proof alarm sounders, sirens, bells and horns, loudspeakers and beacons.
