The highest permissible concentration of carbon monoxide in the workplace is 30 ppm (parts per million). Escaping carbon monoxide can very quickly accumulate to a life-threatening extent in enclosed and semi-enclosed spaces. A Testo carbon monoxide meter enables reliable detection of this insidious gas.

Carbon monoxide is a combustion gas (harmful gas) that is released when combustion processes are incomplete. The most frequent day-to-day sources of CO are:
- petrol engines
- gas ovens
- heating systems
- solid fuels, such as wood and charcoal.
Carbon monoxide is colourless and odourless and prevents the blood from taking up oxygen when too great a concentration is breathed in. Breathing in a CO concentration of 700 ppm in an enclosed space leads to death after around 3 hours in an adult.
A dangerous gas like carbon monoxide requires measuring instruments which are particularly reliable. To be on the safe side, you have to know which CO meter detects flue gas absolutely reliably. You should take the following into consideration:
- CO sensor: In order to be able to detect even small CO concentrations, a CO meter should have a CO sensor with a high level of measuring accuracy and a large measuring range. The testo 315-4 warning/measuring instrument is recommended – also ideal for the installation and maintenance of gas boilers.
- CO monitor: An easy-to-read display ensures that you can record measuring values quickly and respond to a raised CO concentration immediately.
- CO warning: Is an optical warning signal sufficient? Where CO meters are involved: certainly not. An additional acoustic warning should really be standard for CO measurement. This means safety is still guaranteed, even without being able to see the meter.
- Zeroing phase: CO meters without a zeroing phase are ready for use straight away. Important when you have to be quick. Little tip: keep CO meters on you with a belt clip. This means they are even more quickly to hand for fast checking.
Testo's CO meters mean you are ideally equipped – and can do your job even more reliably, professionally and quickly.
