Gas Detection

Single gas detectors, often referred to as personal gas monitors have been in service for quite a number of years. They are a regular every day sight attached to worker’s coveralls in a wide range of industries and accepted as part of the uniform much like the company badge on the very same pair of coveralls. Whether they are black, yellow, orange or blue they all perform much the same function, don’t they?

Gas Detection - Latest developments in portable and fixed gas detection

The purpose of this article is to inform readers of a number of the latest developments in gas detection across a range of different disciplines.

Gas Detection

Knowledge of the nature and amounts of pollutants in the atmosphere is of major importance in air quality. Consequently there is a need for precise and reliable instruments for analysis of particular gaseous pollutants. Such pollutants include sulphur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO). This article will review detection methods for these and, more briefly, for other pollutant gases.

Calibrate with Confidence

Gas detectors are life saving devices. They are precision instruments that are built solely to measure and monitor potentially lethal gases in the workplace. The only way to ensure that a gas monitor will accurately respond to the hazardous gas or gases it is designed to detect is to calibrate the sensors against a known gas standard.

Monitoring for Safe Work

Toxic VOCs in oil industry applications - Organic chemicals consist of molecules that contain carbon. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic compounds characterised by their tendency to evaporate easily at room temperature.

Confined Spaces

A number of people are killed or seriously injured in confined spaces each year. This happens in a wide range of industries, from those involving complex plant to simple storage vessels. Those killed include not only people working in the confined space but those who try to rescue them without proper training and equipment.

Monitoring You Can Trust

Gas monitoring instruments used by occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) professionals have come a long way in improvements since the days of analog monitors designed to warn coal miners of the presence of methane gas. They are advanced to the point where the instruments are chock-full of exceptional features and functionality, much of which comes standard with the product. New or improved technologies have helped to raise the bar, as well as market expectations, resulting in better products and more choices.

Gas Detection

Mines can be hazardous environments and the possibility of fire, flood, explosion, asphyxiation, toxic gas poisoning and collapse has the potential to simultaneously affect a large number of people.

Confined Space Entry

Poe, whilst writing his classic short story, succeeded in conjuring up a vision of "the pit" as a deep, dark place full of grotesque fates for those unfortunate enough to enter. In the modern health and safety context, "the pit" is just one example of the broad range of confined space entry scenarios. All of which are capable of bringing injury, illness and death to the unaware, untrained, unassessed and the unprepared.

Attack of The Killer Spaces

Mise en scène - It's more like a scene from a Hammer Horror B-movie than reality, but it actually does happen, at least once a year. Someone goes into a harmless-looking opening, perhaps to retrieve something they have dropped, or just for a look, and they don't come out.

Gas Detectors

Gas detectors do 'exactly what it says on the tin' – they detect the presence, and in many cases levels, of gases.

Confined Space Entry

When considering confined space entry procedure, employers integrate many factors into a plan to ensure the safety of all involved. In the UK under the Confined Spaces Regulations 19972, employers must first try to avoid the need for a confined space entry.

Gas Detection

When using or being exposed to hazardous substances at work people's health may be put at risk as a result of over exposure to these materials

ATEX Directives 94/9/EC and 99/92/EC

The Directive ATEX 94/9/EC of 23rd March 1994 on the approximation of the Laws of the Member States concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres has been published on the official EC Gazette No.100 of 19th April 1994.

Gas Detection Technology

There is an array of different sensors for different applications. Jörg Kühn explains the benefits and disadvantages of each kind and how to use them safely.
