Are you looking for a gas detection solution for Silane?

New Cosmos offers a variety of Silane gas detectors such as the PS-7 and SH-WAD series of detectors. Portable detectors are the XPS-7 or the XP-703III leak detector.

Silane is highly flammable when coming in contact with air. Very often flame detectors are used for the detection of a silane fires. New Cosmos - BIE rather detects silane before it burns. Low ppm detection has proven itself in preventing fires or explosions at your facility.
