Methane is a colorless odorless gas. The chemical formula of methane gas is CH4. The fact that methane gas detection is required is due to its flammable nature and property of combustion with oxygen. The primary component of Natural Gas is Methane.
Methane is abundantly found in the atmosphere and used in a multiple range of applications. The LEL of Methane is 5.0%.
Since methane has no color or odor but has a tendency to seep in through cracks and leak through the pipes. For a combustible and odourless gas it is essential to install a natural gas detector.

PEL – A Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) as per the OSHA Regulation PEL is the maximum amount or concentration of a chemical that a worker may be exposed to.
STEL – A Short-Term Exposure Limit (STEL) an exposure of less than or equal to 15 minutes is known as Short term Exposure.
TWA – Time Weighted Averages is the total exposure that happens over an 8 hour shift.
