Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal poisoning in many industrialized countries. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless and tasteless gas caused by the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas to the human body, when inhaled it binds to hemoglobin, myoglobin, and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase reducing oxygen storage, transport and respiration in these organelles.

Most large coal fired power plants and combustion processes are required to monitor CO, NO and NO2 (NOx), SO2 and possibly CO2; in addition the analyser has to be normalised to Standard conditions. For this application CODEL offers the five channel GCEM 40 series which uses Infrared absorption to measure these gases plus moisture, pressure and temperature. The analyser can be configured for single channel operation to monitor any of these gases plus CH4 and HCl.

Many forklift trucks have internal combustion engines that burn propane, natural gas, diesel, or other fossil fuels. A portable combustion gas and emissions analyzer can be used to optimize combustion efficiency & maximize fuel savings, identify and quantify sources that can adversely affect safety and comfort in the work environment, and measure and reduce harmful emissions in the forklift engine exhuast gas.
If you use compressed breathing air it is essential to monitor for contaminants including carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as oil mist and water vapour. Some people spot-check their compressed air quarterly using colorimetric tubes, but it is safer to test the air continuously. If you are operating or servicing equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gas (F gas) in refrigeration, air conditioning and fire protection systems you need to adhere to requireme...
The quality of compressed breathing gases for aircraft, diving and marine has very tight limits imposed by bodies such as NATO and national bodies such as MOD. The test requirements are for contaminants such as CO, CO2, Total VOC, CFCs and halogenated hydrocarbons, as well as H2O and O2 content.
The mining industry uses chemicals as ‘flotation’ agents in the recovery of sulphide minerals containing metallic elements (e.g., copper, nickel, silver, gold) from ore slurries. Sodium ethyl xanthate (SEX) is one of most common flotation agents, and it decomposes to form ethanol, carbon disulfide CS2, and Carbonyl Sulfide COS. These harmful gaseous compounds must be monitored from the indoor air at the enriching plant.
Gas Emissions to the Atmosphere; Production of aluminum from its ores at aluminum smelters results in carbon dioxide CO2, carbon monoxide CO, sulfur dioxide SO2, and hydrogen fluoride HF gas emissions to the atmosphere.
Environics® Ambient Monitor Calibrator with Ozone Generators facilitate dynamic calibration of ambient air analyzers. These instruments automatically perform zero, precision, span and multi-point calibrations using NO, NO2, SO2, CO, O3, hydrocarbons and other gases of interest. All ozone generators are factory calibrated using a NIST traceable ozone standard. The Series 6100, Series 6103 and Series 9100 all meet or exceed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
There are many types of stationary and mobile internal combustion engines that can run off gas or diesel fuels. Engines can be lean burning at a high air to fuel ratio (AFR) or rich burning at a low AFR. The exhaust stack gases from engines contain pollutant gases including CO, NO, NO2, NOx, and CxHy hydrocarbons as well as particulate matter. Measuring the engine exhaust emissions is important for engine tuning, performance optimization, safety, and proving emissions compliance to regulatory authorities.
Nitric acid HNO3 is an important intermediate reagent for production of several important end products, such as fertilizers, explosives, dyestuffs/pigments, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, photographic materials, plastics, and synthetic fibers. At nitric acid manufacturing plants, the Gasmet™ FTIR Gas Analyzer can be used to measure several gaseous components from the process stream for purposes of process control. A single system can be used to measure the high levels of nitrogen monoxide NO and nitrogen...
Closed chamber gas flux measurements can be made with Protea FTIR analysers to allow researchers in the field of atmospheric gas analysis from agricultural and livestock to measure evolved gases such as N2O, CO2, CO, NH3, and CH4. Nitrous oxide (N2O) and Methane (CH4) emissions from soil, plant and livestock are especially important gases to measure, given their high potential as greenhouse gases (GHGs). NH3, whilst not a greenhouse gas on the scale of N2O, CH4 and CO2, is a major emission from agricultural, such...
VOCS are volatile organic compounds, according to their chemical structure it can be divided into alkanes, aromatic hydrocarbons, esters, aldehydes, etc. The most common type of gas composition are benzene, toluene, xylene, styrene, trichloroethylene, chloroform, trichloroethane, diisocyanate (TDI), two different cyanide methyl ester, etc. the gas is discharged in industries such as the spray paint, petrochemical, chemical, shoes, printing, electronics, clothing dry cleaning, oil, construction, etc. VOCS has big...
Poorly controlled the concentration of gases such as CO, CO2, CH4 in the metallurgical industry cause poisoning, explosions and other accidents, and pose a serious threat to the safety in production. So it is essential to check the content of these gases for energy conservation, increase productivity, reduce energy consumption and protect the safety of life and product. The company`s gas analysis technology can accurately and reliably measure various industrial gas content, to provide a complete.
