For more than 60 years, GfG has been committed to protecting people, industrial facilities and the environment by developing and manufacturing gas detection systems. With an extensive range of portable gas detectors and fixed gas detection systems, GfG can supply you with a selection of products for many applications and industries. Our scope also includes on-site service and advanced training courses.


What distinguishes us from other manufacturers

We are specialists for gas detection solutions, not generalists in safety. No one can be the best at everything, but if you focus on one thing, you can achieve excellence. We work hard to provide you with the best gas detection equipment available, so you can focus on your task without having to worry about the risks that gases can pose. Because of that we invest more heavily in research and development than any other company. Approximately 13% of our annual turnover is reinvested in basic research and the development of new sensors and devices.


A “never say no” approach

This includes finding solutions for customers whose requirements are not met by “off the shelf” products. We take pride in our longstanding cooperation with the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), for example. For many years now, they have put their trust in GfG’s portable devices, which we optimized to adapt to the Singaporean climate and fulfill the special requirements for integration into the SCDF communication network.

The Microtector II G460 has been specially developed for personal protection against gas dangers. The robust design allows it to be used in a wide range of applications such as the steel industry, refineries, sewer construction and fire brigades. The compact multi-gas detector monitors up to seven gases simultaneously. For this purpose, the G460 is equipped with a heat tone sensor for combustible gases and vapours (0 to 100 % LEL), an infrared sensor (NDIR) and 3 electrochemical sensors for toxic gases as well as oxygen. In addition, a PID sensor for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be used instead of one of the EC sensors.

The Microtector II G460 simultaneously controls seven gases such as methane, propane, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, hydrogen and VOCs. The selection of different long-life sensors makes the multi-gas detector a versatile and reliable companion for daily work in environments with expected gas dangers. An optional electric pump can also be connected to clear confined spaces and containers from a safe distance.

Safety and operation
The Microtector II G460 is certified for use up to Ex zone 1 and in hazardous areas in mining (M1). In addition, it is water- and dust-protected according to protection class IP67, making the 7-gas detection device suitable for demanding applications. The housing made of rubberised polycarbonate protects the device from shocks and vibrations. Award-winning design, low weight and the crocodile clip ensure optimum wearing comfort. The device is operated via three buttons and the colour backlit display, of which the display can be zoomed and rotated by 180 degrees if required. An optional battery module with explosion-proof torch is available for low-light conditions.

Alarm and battery life
In the event of a threshold being exceeded, the G460 warns its wearer in three ways: by light signal, vibration (optional) and loud horn (103 db(A)). The operating time is up to 170 hours, depending on whether a NiMH battery module or an alkaline battery module is used, and depending on the operating mode and the sensor equipment. The optional pump has its own power supply and therefore does not shorten the unit runtime. With a suction distance of up to 100 metres, continuous pump operation of up to 10 hours is possible.

The DS400 docking station can be used to charge, calibrate and adjust the G460 multi-gas detector. The G400-MP2 smart pump can be plugged in for free measurement. In addition to charging and calibrating, the smart charger cap allows the data logger recordings to be transferred to the PC.
