Hydrogen sulfide gas is a deadly and very dangerous gas that is formed as a result of the decomposition of sulfur-containing organic materials. There are natural gas, crude oil, mines and wells. The release of this gas in mining and oil reservoirs minimizes the safety of personnel. H2S gas can cause severe pollution in the environment and cause many human and financial losses. To overcome this problem, it is necessary to use gas detectors. For this reason, the use of H2S gas detectors in mineral and hydrocarbon extractions helps us find the percentage of H2S gas emissions in different parts of a mine and oil reservoir on a ppm scale and take timely measures to deal with it. Let’s apply it by emitting gas into the environment. This device produces signals and transmits them to the controller room so that the central computer can generate the necessary warnings. It is very important to address the issue of raising the safety level in the work environment and reducing the possible damages caused by the release of H2S gas into the environment. The H2S gas detector is a type of detector with electrochemical cells, designed and produced by domestic experts in a knowledge-based company. In this study, an H2S gas detector is introduced and its design and application stages in mines, oil, gas and petrochemical industries are reviewed.
