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.
Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) is a highly toxic compound that is a byproduct of many industrial processes. Existing HCN point sensors are maintenance intensive, slow to respond and provide limited coverage. Many HCN sensors do not work reliably in hot or cold weather, or in humid environments. Our technology can be used for fixed monitoring applications or for temporary protection of workers during construction projects.
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,...
Sewerin manufacture a wide range of gas warning detectors suitable for many different gas monitoring, detection and warning applications.Sewerin gas detectors are used to monitor and warn of the dangers from explosive, toxic and asphyxiating gases.
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 of point...
Axetris infrared sources are used in a variety of industrial applications: Combustible and Toxic Gas Detection, Refrigerant Monitoring, SF6 Monitoring, Fruit Ripening Monitoring, Flame Detection, Liquid Analysis using Attenuated Total Reflection ATR, Semiconductor Fabrication.
GasFinder2 can be permanently installed to monitor chemical and petroleum plants for both combustible and toxic gases. GasFinder2 can be used to replace arrays of point sensors for perimeter monitoring. A single light path will replace many point sensors. With GasFinder2 perimeter monitoring, all gas dispersed from a facility is detected and logged.
