Gas Detection Q&A - For Your Safety Environments
Built-in advanced gas detector sensor and sound & light alarm to ensure precise and safe gas detection in hazardous applications.
Q: Is Hydrogen a combustible gas?
A: Yes, Hydrogen is a combustible gas. It can readily combust when it comes into contact with Oxygen in the air, producing a highly flammable mixture. When this mixture of H2 and O2 is ignited, it can result in an explosion. Hydrogen has a wide flammability range, meaning it can ignite and burn in a range of concentrations from about 4% to 75% hydrogen in the air.
Because of its flammability and explosiveness, Hydrogen should be handled carefully and stored in appropriate containers and conditions to minimize the risk of accidents. And it is necessary to use a gas detector to monitor the hydrogen concentration. H2 gas is a key component in some forms of alternative energy production, such as Hydrogen fuel cells, where safety precautions are essential to prevent accidents.
