The most of gas associated industries face with the risks of explosion and fire which may lead to dire consequences. We present an approach for assessing the explosion risks in the presence of hydrocarbon mixtures when the chemical composition and concentration of gases in the mixture are unknown. The core idea is the measurement of warm dissipated during the combustion of hydrocarbons in the reaction chamber of the sensor. To evaluate this approach we use a catalytic planar sensor with limited gas diaphragm in the reaction chamber. We demonstrate the feasibility of our approach experimentally.
