Re: gas detector..

What range you are talking about? Distance from gas leakage point or concentration and what kind of gas?

gas detector..

The sensitive of gas detectors is in concentration units (particularly % LEL) for combustible gas detection. The concentration depends on leak rate and ventilation situation, another important point is gas density. LPG always accumulates at the bottom of an air volume respectively a room's floor.

A sensor can be either mounted at the position where the highest concentration is expected or near to a possible ignition source.

Re: gas detector..

I agree with LvM and I think you need to check safety gas leakage monitors. There are many available on the market and LPG is relatively easy case.
