Why the Carbon monoxide alarm

User:JXCTUpload time:Mar 09 2023


Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas that can cause serious illness and death in high concentrations. Carbon monoxide alarms are widely available and should be considered a backup, but not a substitute for the proper installation, use and maintenance of fuel burning appliances. Carbon monoxide alarms are designed to warn you of abnormal carbon monoxide buildup in your home. These higher concentrations of carbon monoxide can come from improperly maintained, installed or used fuel burning appliances, return appliances or fireplaces, or cars idling in the garage.

To install a carbon monoxide alarm:

Install carbon monoxide alarms in corridors near each individual sleeping area.
Please note all instructions and warnings associated with CO alerts.
JXCT recommends carbon monoxide alarms for every home

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends that every home should have a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm. Have all fuel burning appliances professionally inspected -- including furnaces, furnaces, fireplaces, clothes dryers, water heaters, and space heaters -- to detect deadly carbon monoxide leaks. It is recommended that every home should have at least one carbon monoxide alarm that meets the standard requirements.

Indoor CO detector alarm

CO alarm adopts imported first-line chemical sensors of major brands. It has the characteristics of fast and sensitive response, strong anti-interference ability, long life, high precision, high repeatability and high stability. Carbon monoxide alarm detector is suitable for the detection of enclosed living places. Carbon monoxide concentration in agricultural greenhouses, production workshops, indoor barbecues, agricultural breeding and other environments.

Installation precautions:

Where to install the detector:
(1) First of all, it is necessary to confirm whether the gas to be detected is lighter than air or heavier than air. Installation location. When the detector alarms, everyone in the indoor environment can hear it;
(2) Gases heavier than air include liquefied petroleum gas, etc., and the detector should be installed 0.3-1.0 meters above the ground and within a radius of 1.5 meters from the gas source;
(3) Gases lighter than air include natural gas, biogas, etc. The detector should be installed 0.3-1.0 meters below the ceiling and within a radius of 1.5 meters from the gas source.

Where can not install the detector:
(1) The CO detector should not be installed too close to the gas stove to prevent the detector from being baked by the stove flame.
(2) It cannot be installed in a place where there is a lot of oily smoke, so as to prevent the oily smoke from blocking the air inlet of the detector and causing poor air intake, thereby affecting the sensor's sensitivity.
(3) It cannot be installed in places with large water vapor flow such as exhaust fans, doors and windows.
(4) Don't install in dusty, dirty or insects.
