In today’s competitive marketplace, maintaining a high level of process and plant safety is a critical concern. Manufacturers can reduce costs by minimizing damage to equipment and eliminating incidents that impact people and the environment. At the same time, they
As an industry leader in gas detection products, Scott Safety is committed to the life safety of workers in potentially dangerous industries such as petrochemical, pharmaceutical, wastewater treatment, and chemical processing. The ability to detect and analyze unseen threats through
The instrumentation developed to detect chemical contamination is an extension of our human senses. One of these senses, the sense of smell, occurs primarily because chemicals volatilize. This volatilization occurs most readily at room temperature for generally light molecules. These
This handbook is intended to be a reference for the users of portable gas detection. The information has been compiled to the best of our knowledge. However, the Dräger organization is not responsible for any consequence or accident which may
A useful table of gases, including for every kind of gas its recommended detector technology. http://www.controlinstruments.com/table-of-gases
Several organizations have published codes, standards, and recommended practices relating to gas detection and alarm systems, however, new standards are also being developed. These standards all relate to components of gas detection and alarm systems, such as sensors and monitors.
The MultiRAE IR monitor uses an NDIR (non-dispersive infrared absorbance) sensor to monitor CO2. Most molecules can absorb infrared light, causing them to bend, stretch or twist. The amount of IR light absorbed is proportional to the concentration. The energy
This handbook describes the use and performance of gas detection tubes and sampling pumps manufactured by RAE Systems Inc. RAE Systems began manufacturing gas detection tubes in 1997 and is adding many new tubes to its product line each year.
When protecting your employees and operational processes from toxic and combustible gases, it’s critical to choose a gas detector that provides the most accurate and reliable monitoring possible. With so much at stake, using the most advanced technology possible is
In a first approach gas detection instruments are products of safety technology and are used preferably to protect workers and to ensure plant safety. Gas detection systems are dedicated to detect dangerous gas concentrations, to trigger alarms and – as
When using a photoacoustic infrared instrument, a gas sample is introduced into the monitor’s measurement chamber and the sample is exposed to a specific wavelength of infrared light. If the sample contains the gas of interest, that sample will absorb
The MSA Gas Detection Handbook is designed to introduce users to key terms and concepts in gas detection and to serve as a quick reference manual for information such as specific gas properties, exposure limits and other data. The Handbook
