  • Radiation Worker Training

    Safe Training Systems (STS) are specialists in the provision of high quality, highly realistic simulated radiation monitors. STS have sold instruments for training to over 12 different countries across the world the majority of which have been used for Nuclear Worker training. The simulation system uses completely safe methods to recreate radiation fields and contaminated surfaces, this means that novice users can be taught basic principles without any exposure. There are of course also benefits to the trainer who again does not accumulate any dose and can therefore carry out more sessions. Instruments for workers vary widely from the Thermo Electra, RO2/20 and FH40G through to Ludlum model 3s and Automess 6150AD. With a wide range of instruments and sources there is always a solution to fit both budget and purpose - please contact sales@safetrainingsystems.com for more information.

    Pressure Monitor use in a Containment Area

    When using negative pressure containment, it is important to monitor the pressure inside the containment in reference to the outside area. However, because the typical negative pressure required is usually only 0.020”WC, it can be difficult to find equipment sensitive enough to measure and monitor your containment area. Omnitec Design has two options to meet this need. Both the Watchman Differential Pressure Monitor and the self-contained Omniguard 4 Pressure Recorder are designed to provide highly accurate monitoring and alarm functions while still being easy to setup with a simple push-button calibration. A pressure monitor is a very important tool that can help ensure the integrity of a containment. Dealing with hazardous debris from abatement/remediation jobs can be a sensitive task that demands safe practices by workers to guarantee their safety, and those who may come into contact with potentially harmful material.

  • HCl Monitoring in Air

    Hydrogen chloride (HCl) is a colorless, sometimes slightly yellow, gas. It is an undesired environmental component that may be damaging to workers and the surroundings. Exposure limits have thus been established by industries to make sure that the workers operate in a safe environment. HCl monitoring is especially required for incinerators, coal-fired power plants, aluminum recycling and cement plants. Unisearch offers a reliable and easy-to-use HCl analyzer – the TDLAS-based LasIR system. Studies have shown that TDLAS equipment provides data that is more accurate than conventional gas monitoring equipment. When calibrated for HCl monitoring, TDLAS is able to detect this gas among other gases present in the area and provide continuous updates with regards to the changes in its concentration.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for print factories

    Typical modern printing processes utilize solvent-based dyes. The evaporation of the dye solvents into the ambient air during the printing process may expose the workers to various chemicals. Depending on the type of solvents in case, the solvents have different long term exposure limits, which should be obeyed. Component specific measurements are necessary to protect the workers from exposure while avoiding unnecessary interruptions to the printing process from false alarms.

    Measurement solution for medical workplace monitoring

    In taking a responsible stance on the exposure of workers to any potential hazardous gases, there is a need for workplaces using anaesthetic gases, such as hospital operating rooms or research laboratories, to control the level of waste anaesthetic gas in the ambient air. Anaesthesia machines, ventilators, breathing systems and waste gas scavenging systems will all contribute to te background level of he anaesthetic gases that are present in the environment within a facility, whether those machines are in a good state of repair or not. Recovery rooms can become polluted, for example from gas exhaled by the patient, and clean-up from any spills can remain in the background air for long periods.

  • Smoke generator devices for lev testing, spray booth clearance testing & air testing

    For many years, materials containing isocyanate have been the single biggest cause of occupational asthma in the UK. Vehicle paint sprayers are 80 times more likely to develop occupational asthma than workers in other industries. This is caused by the inhalation of the fine paint mist that is generated when paint spraying. There is a requirement for the measurement and display of `clearance times` for spray booths / rooms set by the HSE and the Motor Vehicle Repair (MVR) to meet the requirements of Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).

    Testing Fume Hood Flow Dynamics using SF6 as a Tracer Gas

    A safe laboratory environment requires an effective method for clearing toxic material from fume hoods. Since all handling of toxic materials is completed in these hoods, it is critical to have a procedure to evaluate their operation to assure adequate protection for laboratory workers. The InfraRan Specific Vapor Analyzer, factory calibrated for SF6, is an ideal instrument for measuring fume hood efficiency in accordance with ASHRAE and other standards. Manufacturers identify the flow dynamics (factors that affect air flow in the hood and performance with air) using the ratings AM (as manufactured), AI (as installed), and AU (as used). A fume hood evaluation conducted under its operational environment is critical, as these tests will indicate any installation shortcomings as well as direct workers in proper laboratory hood techniques.

    Indoor Air Quality Monitoring

    Accurate control of critical indoor environmental parameters is not only essential for the well-being and comfort of building occupants, but also has a major impact on energy efficiency. A multitude of parameters can affect indoor air quality (IAQ) from gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds to particulates, humidity and bacteria such as legionella. CO2 is one of the greatest variables affecting indoor environmental quality since it is produced by people occupying the building. CO2 production is a function of the number, size and activity levels of the people present in the building. Local concentrations can therefore vary dramatically – for example when a meeting room is occupied, or while workers are on lunch or coffee breaks. Excess CO2 levels can lead to tiredness and a lack of concentration and can contribute to the symptoms of Sick Building Syndrome such as headaches, eye, nose and throat irritation, itchy skin and nausea.

    Processing of LCD screens

    The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain valuable raw materials, such as metals and plastics, which have to be recovered in such a way, that the environment is not harmed. However, recycling specialists, Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH, have now developed an alternative: The company from Kaufering has developed an automatic processing system that enables mercury and other valuable raw materials to be easily extracted and recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.

    Gas Detection Solutions for Aluminium

    Primary aluminium smelting generates large amounts of hydrogen fluoride gas (HF). Worker safety and ambient air quality concerns require that HF be monitored at several locations in smelters. Traditionally, a variety of chemical sampling methods have been used for HF monitoring in and around smelters. However, these methods are labour intensive and require ongoing maintenance and consumables. During the past decade, laser based HF analyzers have been replacing the traditional methods. Laser analyzers are compact, robust and reliable and provide accurate HF data. Fast response times that enable easy correlation of high HF emissions with work practices.

    Analysis of Isocyanates Using the ASSET™ EZ4-NCO Dry Sampler

    Isocyanates are used as a raw material to produce a number of products . Personal exposure can occur while the products made with isocyanates are being applied, or when the materials are removed by grinding or thermal degradation. Workers who are exposed to these compounds are at risk for respiratory disorders and asthma. The highly reactive nature of the isocyanate compounds and the low occupational exposure limits put high demands on both sampling and analytical techniques for monitoring of isocyanates in air. We investigated the performance of the LC-MS and LC-MS-MS methods in the analysis of isocyanates using the new ASSET™ EZ4-NCO Dry Sampler. We found that the analytical method can successfully reach the quantitation limit for most isocyanates of 5 ng/mL in the final sample when LC-MS-MS analysis was used and the quantitation limit of 10 ng/mL when LC-MS analysis was used. All 11 compounds were well-resolved chromatographically using a 15 cm Ascentis Express C18 column.

    Abatement and Remediation

    Containment and safety issues are a critical consideration when working on any mold, asbestos, or lead remediation/abatement projects. Improperly contained, the dust and bio-contaminants released can, be very harmful for both on-site workers and occupants in neighboring areas. Exactly how you approach your containment and capture solutions will depend on the individual site’s risk assessment report. If you need help identifying solutions to the issues raised in the report, feel free to contact our customer service department and we can review your options together. In most cases, however, there are four common considerations that will be relevant: -Meeting Containment and Air Change Requirements -Monitoring of Containment Pressure -Sterilization of Filtered Air -Removal of Odors, Mold Spores, VOC’s and other Airborne Bio-Contaminates

  • Gas detection for the winery and brewery Industry

    Once an archetypal example of manual production, the winery and brewery industries now incorporate sophisticated processes to ensure high quality levels and efficient output. In some cases traditional approaches have simply been scaled up or put under more stringent monitoring, whilst in others innovations such as nitrogen-pressurised canning have been introduced. However, whichever approach has been followed there is also a growing realisation of the gas hazards that are associated with both new and old processes, and the need to protect workers from toxic gas exposure and asphyxiation risks.
