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.

Before each use of a portable gas detection device, its flawless functionality must be checked with a display test (bump test). We have developed the TS400 and TX400 test stations for our G450 and G460 portable devices so that this measure, which is required by DGUV information 213-056 (T021) and 213-057 (T023), is simple, time-saving and cost-effective. During the functional test, operation is via the display and the keys of the inserted measuring device.

Function test and adjustment
If a switched-on gas detection device is inserted into one of the two test stations, the function test starts automatically after ten seconds. Within a maximum of 30 seconds, the alarms and response times are tested, the time and test interval are set, and the data is stored on a microSD card (optional). Afterwards, it is displayed whether the test has been performed successfully or whether an error has occurred. The TX400 also offers the option of sensor adjustment. Before adjustment, the zero point of the sensors must be set with fresh air. The sensor sensitivity is then readjusted using the appropriate test gas. Depending on the device and the number of sensors, this process takes a maximum of four minutes.

Power supply and charging function (optional)
Power is supplied via an external 12-volt power supply unit or via a PC connected by USB. If a switched-off gas detection device is placed in the test station, the charging process starts automatically. Once fully charged, the test station switches to trickle charge to conserve battery power. A 230 volt power supply or a car charging adapter is required for the charging function.

Equipment and accessories
A gas sampling fitting (optional) must be used for the test gas application with a gas cylinder. Both test stations are equipped with one input and one output each for supply and removal of test gas. The documentation is stored on a microSD card. The connection to a computer is made via the mini-USB port.
