  • Monitoring of Hydrogen Sulfide in Industrial Processes

    Hydrogen sulfide, H2S, is a very poisonous, corrosive, and flammable gas. As such, it needs to be carefully monitored and controlled in industrial processes where it is generated or used. At relatively low concentrations, it has an odour of rotten eggs which effectively works as a warning, but at higher concentrations where it becomes acutely toxic and even lethal, it can no longer be smelled ...

  • An Easy Guide to Understanding Surfactants

    What is a Surfactant? Surfactants are a primary component of cleaning detergents. The word surfactant means surface active agent. As the name implies, surfactants stir up activity on the surface you are cleaning to help trap dirt and remove it from the surface. Surfactants have a hydrophobic (water-hating) tail and a hydrophilic (water-loving) head. The hydrophobic tail of each ...

  • Factors affecting the choice of VOC sensor

    VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) perform many vital roles as fuels, solvents, cleaners, feedstock, sterilants etc. However, they can be harmful to health and the environment, so it is often necessary to monitor their concentration. By definition, organic compounds contain the element carbon, and exhibit similar chemical properties, which is advantageous from a monitoring perspective. However, ...
