20 years of excellence in toxic gas sensor manufacture


City Technology is the world leader in the production of gas sensors for use in personal and fixed gas detection systems. Its German facility in Bonn is the centre of excellence for the design and manufacture of the Sensoric family of electrochemical toxic gas sensors, which, since their original development 20 years ago, have become synonymous with highly specialised technology solving difficult operational problems.

Toxic gases, also known as exotic gases, include hydrides, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride, fluorine, ozone, hydrazine and many others. Whilst these gases are inherently dangerous, many high technology manufacturing processes rely on them; they also play a critical part in the mining, petrochemical and energy generation industries. Sensoric sensors must not only reliably respond to toxic gases, which are either poisonous, explosive, flammable, or exhibit all three characteristics, but they must also function effectively in harsh operating environments. Providing reliable and rapid measurement of low-level leaks or excessively high concentrations of such gases is critical for uninterrupted industrial operation and the protection of life and property.

The Sensoric family can detect more than 20 different gases, extending the original focus of hydride sensors measuring critical-to-manufacture toxic gases in semiconductor facilities, through to specialist sensors for the detection of hard to measure toxic gases used in refrigeration, water treatment and other industrial hygiene applications.

Over the past 20 years Sensoric technology has not only changed the dynamics of the global semiconductor industry, it has played a large part in the electronic revolution which is transforming the social and industrial landscapes of the developed and developing world. Continued commitment to advanced manufacturing and outstanding service will ensure that these developments lay the foundations for Sensoric's sustained growth in the highly specialised toxic gas sensor market. Close working partnerships with customers are also a central part of the Sensoric philosophy, demonstrated by the fact that the first customers for Sensoric sensors remain major users of the products some 20 years later.
