Reliability is most sought after attribute for gas detection
07 January 2014
A recent industry poll undertaken by Honeywell Company, City Technology, found that reliability is the most important factor driving purchasing decisions in the global gas detection industry.
Over 50% of those polled in the last quarter of 2013 identified reliability as the most valuable quality when assessing gas detection requirements. This was followed by cost (23% of respondents) and proven track record (14% of respondents).
The survey was conducted by City Technology around the globe at major Health and Safety and Oil and Gas events in the United States, Europe and China. When asked about other important trends driving the market, respondents cited technical innovation, improved training and regulation.
This research supports the overall market trend for gas detection to provide the safest levels of protection in increasingly difficult environments. The industry has evolved dramatically working with end users to deliver the most reliable technologies that can withstand harsh temperatures fluctuations and be robust in difficult environments.
Commenting on the findings, John Warburton, City Technology’s global marketing manager said: “These findings support what City Technology works to pioneer – safe and reliable gas detection. We are continually working to design and develop solutions to meet the needs of a diverse range of applications. A recent innovation is the use of mathematical modelling as a design tool that is helping to ensure that our new sensors are robust and reliable from day one. City sensors are critical components in gas detectors. They simply cannot be allowed to fail.”
