There are many different technologies that may be utilized in detecting gases. Electrochemical gas detecting devices have special filters that produce electricity proportional to the volume of gas that passed through the filter. These filters can be tuned to be sensitive to different types and concentrations of gases. Another type has infrared sensors that analyze the emitted radiation and quantify the amount of gas present in the air. Some detectors use semiconductors to detect gases when they contact a special sensor. Other devices use sound waves to detect changes in the surrounding space. And finally, there are holographic detectors. They have a special matrix that absorbs light in the scanned space. If air composition is changed, the reflection is also changed due to the different lengths of light waves.

Gas analyzers have a somewhat similar working principle, but they are also able to analyze the type and the volume of hazardous gas present in the air. These devices are extremely useful in industries working with hazardous gases because by detecting and preventing gas leaks, they save people’s lives.
