    Mercury monitoring for on-site remediation

    Fugitive emissions can be a health concern during removal and disposal of mercury-contaminated material at remediation sites. Thus, remediation projects either indoors or outdoors often require on-site, real-time mercury air monitoring with a Tekran 2537. This assures permitted levels are not exceeded during waste processing and human exposure levels are below government regulated toxicity thresholds. Often multiple sites must be monitored continuously.

  • Gas detection for the steel industry

    Regarded by many as providing the backbone to modern society, the steel industry is one which continues to evolve. Whether it is geographic shifts in demand or production, or challenges brought by energy or raw material costs, companies continue to develop their processes and facilities to meet them. Alongside these changes companies have also realised the requirement to minimise downtime due to unplanned maintenance and protect workers from exposure to toxic or flammable gas hazards.

  • Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for chemical weapon agents

    The nation has stockpiled thousands of cylinders and canisters of toxic and deadly chemical weapon agents, including mustard gas (HD), sarin (GB), tabun (GA), and V-agents. Most of these CWAs are stored at DOD facilities around the country and many have been in storage for years and years. As a consequence, DOD requirements specify that the stockpiles have to be monitored regularly for leakages to prevent release to the environment and exposure to personnel.

  • 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...

  • Gas Detection Solutions for Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Safety

    Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a very useful chemical used in a variety of industries. However, HF is highly toxic with potential fatal consequences with exposure to humans, so facilities that make or use HF should exercise great care. Nevertheless, there is always the risk of leaks from process elements such as valves, pump seals and storage vessels. Tanker loading, transporting and unloading operations also provide opportunity for HF releases. Industrial processes that make or use HF typically have arrays...

  • Laser & Plasma Cutting

    Laser & Plasma Cutting fumes are Unbreathable. Using laser or plasma cutting equipment on either metals or plastics introduces several known carcinogens, such as fused silica and ethyl acrylate, into the air. Occupational Health and Safety organizations recommend reducing personal exposure to the lowest level feasible. Hand held plasma cutting provides metalworkers with a quick and fast way to cut large sheets of metal material. However, plasma and oxy cutting generate a large amount of sparks, slag and fume...

  • Soldering Fume Extraction

    Soldering fumes are Unbreathable. Soldering enables the joining of metal parts by melting a filler metal to attach wires and other metallic components. The fumes generated from melting solder especially solder containing Lead or Tin present are dangerous and require local ventilation to remove harmful smoke from the work area. Soldering application need to be properly ventilated to prevent toxic fumes from reaching the worker`s breathing zone. There are a number of different industries such as the electronics...
