Failures to oil and gas pipelines can have severe environmental consequences and cost billions of dollars to rectify. Because of this, safety regulations governing these pipelines are becoming more stringent and visible.
Phosgene COCl2 is a colorless gas. While it has been used as a Chemical Weapon Agent (CWA) in the past, currently this poisonous gas is also an important reagent in synthesis in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The plants using phosgene are typically equipped with gas sensors to detect leaks in the indoor ambient air. The critical situations arise when equipment in contact with the gas at the manufacturing facilities are serviced and maintained. As phosgene is very poisonous, even small gas pockets in...
The rising levels of manmade greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere and their resulting impact on climate is now one of the single biggest technological and environmental challenges facing the world. This makes intensified monitoring of these gases more critical than ever in order to better quantify the role of the numerous natural and manmade sources, sinks and buffers involved in the cycles of GHGs. It also enables us to objectively audit GHG fluxes at the factory, city, country and continental level. Such...

Many chemical compounds and gas are invisible to the naked eye. But there are many companies that make intensive use both during and after the production process. The manner and frequency with which companies are required to monitor, document, report and rectify any escape of volatile gaseous compounds are established by regulations extremely rigid. The technology most widely used is the “Imaging Camera” or “sniffer technology.” “When we look for gas leaks, check all systems in...
Scuba divers, whether newly qualified or a veteran of the seas, need to know the breathing gas mix in their tanks to plan for a safe dive. Analox Sensor Technology offers a complete scuba gas analyser package, not just for divers, but for the local scuba school, filling station and shop too. All Analox scuba analysers are tried and tested, with some even being NATO coded. Long life with minimal running costs, Analox analysers ensure nitrox, trimix and air divers are safe throughout the world.
The medical industry requires the accurate and consistent performance of its equipment. IST’s precise and reliable sensors meet the needs of these applications. Flow is perhaps the most widely used sensor in this industry, controlling medical devices where a gas or fluid is being supplied to a patient, or in cases of patient monitoring. Humidity sensors also have an application in the medical industry in products that control the air present or supplied to the patient.
Comparison of TechnologiesA gas chromatograph (GC) has traditionally been the technology of choice for laboratory analysis of gas samples. GCs have been used for over 50 years in the qualification and quantification of complex mixtures of gases. The techniques and methodology required to run GCs are often a pre-requisite for any laboratory technician. Recent developments in Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) gas analysis has enabled this technology to start to replace GCs in the lab.
Upstream and downstream activities in the industry require a variety of gas analysis capabilities that are well served by MIRICO’s laser-based technology. Our unique Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy technique is a versatile technology that can be deployed in an open-path configuration for the measurement of methane for health & safety monitoring. When combined with an array of reflectors, a single light source can cover a complex route in excess of 1 km, a considerably larger distance than comparable...

Cerex Multi-Gas Open Path Analyzers are available in both FTIR and UVDOAS technologies to meet specific requirements for perimeter ambient air quality monitoring, leak detection, fugitive emissions monitoring and ambient air quality monitoring. Cerex multi-gas analyzers offer significant advantages over single gas analyzer arrays, electro-chemical sensor arrays and time integrated air sampling hardware
Oxygen (O2) is a colorless odorless gas, essential to all life on Earth but damaging in high concentrations. An O2 analyzer should thus be employed for safety management and air pollution prevention purposes. LasIR MP110 is perfect for continuous emission monitoring of O2. It is based on TDLAS technology and can be calibrated as an O2 analyzer, providing accurate and reliable measurements. It quickly responds to changes in compound concentration, thus providing continuous emission monitoring for the specified gas.
The TunnelTech 200 series are primarily gas monitors with optional Visibility capability. Most use Infra-red absorption technology to monitor gaseous pollutants and those with a visibility channel use optical attenuation for that application. All TunnelTech 200 analysers except the TunnelTech 205 use the same rugged corrosion resistant enclosures and have an optional Data Display unit. As there is only one moving part so reliability levels are very high and maintenance levels very low.
