Abstract:

Great sensitivity would be a disadvantage. Traces of fuel vapour are powerfully adsorbed by plastic surfaces, and false alarms would be given by a very sensitive detector held close to any electric cable or similar component. Ideally, the detector should respond to no other chemical. In particular, chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents should produce no response from the instrument. The detector should be light, portable, robust and not be too costly. It should be able to work continuously for a minimum of six hours.
