With its use of toxic and inert gases in confined spaces, the pharmaceutical industry requires significant gas monitoring on the production floor, in research and development laboratories, and in plant utility rooms. Due to the use of nitrogen in many of these areas, detection of oxygen depletion is particularly important.

Offering a wide range of gas detection products and configurations, Tyco Gas and Flame Detection is well equipped to address the multitude of hazards found in pharmaceutical production.
