3M Gas & Flame Detection - Gas and flame solutions, product breadth and innovative technologies

3M Gas & Flame Detection, a new product portfolio under 3M's Personal Safety Division, has debuted its gas and flame solutions, product breadth and innovative technologies as a unified front. The new group is formed from 3M's 2017 acquisition of Scott Safety and its Detcon, Oldham, Simtronics and GMI brands.

"From the safety managers who are responsible for choosing their team's equipment to the workers who need confidence in that equipment so they can stay focused on the task at hand, our customers can be assured that under the umbrella of 3M Gas & Flame Detection we have products, technology and service that can help them be safe and successful," Mel Gerst said.

Provide the POG, industrial, hazmat and commercial communities

"By unifying our expanded portfolio of brands into 3M Gas & Flame Detection, we're providing the POG, industrial, hazmat and commercial communities with a single source for a broad line of safety equipment, including an enhanced offering of gas and flame detection system solutions," said Mel Gerst of 3M Gas & Flame Detection.

Sensing technology: electro chemical, catalytic bead, metal oxide, infrared and other optic solutions

The products from 3M Gas & Flame Detection are well recognised for being designed for harsh environments and tough applications and appreciated for their user-friendly portables and large fixed selection. They help keep personnel and plants safe from hazards thanks to a wide range of sensing technology, including electro chemical, catalytic bead, metal oxide sensor, infrared and other optic solutions for gas and flame detection.

The largest manufacturers of gas and flame detection products

One of the largest manufacturers of gas and flame detection products, 3M Gas & Flame Detection is continuously expanding and updating its solutions, such as a new infrared sensor for the OLCT 100 detector and CSA certification of the MX 32 Controller.

Our products are sold through a world class system of knowledgeable distributors, manufacturers' representatives and sales subsidiaries.

The OLCT 100, analogue gas transmitter

The OLCT 100 is a 4-20 mA analogue gas transmitter designed for industrial applications in hazardous locations; it offers reduced maintenance, improved MTBF, no interference and stability in temperature variations. The operating principle is based on the reduction of infrared radiation when gas is present. There is no chemical reaction or modification to the structure of the HFO molecule. The sensor is not damaged by the continuous presence of gas or over-exposure of gas.

The MX 32, compact and low-profile gas detection controller

The MX 32, a compact, low-profile gas detection controller, recently received certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The MX 32 can continuously monitor up to eight gas detection sensors.
