While the author has created permission to use his text here, I'm not sure that a straight copy-and-paste — which is what the largely appears to be — is suitable. It is too specific and technical for the subject, and does nothing to give a general read of what gas detectors actually are. The article needs a major rewrite. Realkyhick 18:39, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
Merge from Gas leak detection
Logically, gas leak detection is an application of the more general technology of gas detection and measurement. The two articles in question both have deficiencies, and neither has undergone heavy editing over time. Rather than splitting and duplicating content, it would be better to consolidate content into a single stronger article. Specifically, the more-detailed description of types of sensor can be imported into this article, which does not have strong coverage of the topic. Reify-tech (talk) 13:21, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Gas Detector & Gas Leak Detector Article Merging
I completely agree to keep a single but strong article rather than keeping two different articles on Gas Leak Detectors & Gas Detectors.
