Today, there are two MiniRAE devices that are commonly employed by a range of businesses to detect potentially hazardous gases in their workplaces – the 3000 and the Lite models. But which device is best suited to each industry?

Oil and Gas
Gas detection and monitoring is essential in this industry to provide a safe environment for employees, the general public and the environment. The MiniRAE 3000 is the best device for the job here, as it alarms when unsafe levels are registered.

Fire and HazMat
When working in these industries, it is important to be able to instantly get visible readouts of the unseen threats (commonly toxic gases and radiation) that could be present. The MiniRAE 3000 is also preferable for use in these areas, and is actually the device of choice for arson investigators who are looking for accelerant traces.

Industrial Safety
Gas detection and monitoring in this industry is essential for protecting employees and the general facility from potential hazards that they may encounter on the job. The MiniRAE 3000 is also commonly used here, as it is able to detect a range of potentially harmful VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) that exist from acetone to xylene.

National Security
In some national security and military applications, the detection of potentially harmful gases is imperative to the safety of the personnel and the nearby general public. The MiniRAE 3000 is commonly used at public events, such as sporting games and ceremonies, for detecting any potential threats.

This is the most common industry for MiniRAE devices to be utilized and, as such, there are a number of uses for these devices. The MiniRAE 3000 is also the most commonly utilized device here because of its accuracy and wide measurement range, whilst the Lite model is used for more straightforward procedures.

By choosing the appropriate device for your industry, you can rest assured that your business and employees will be efficiently protected against any gas hazards that could present themselves. Generally, the MiniRAE 3000 is a safe bet for gas detection in all industries.
