Industrial workplaces are likely to come across one or more hazardous or toxic gases. Combustible gases such as methane are highly dangerous because they can cause large and fatal explosions when ignited.
Other problem areas when working in industry are carbon monoxide (which poisons the cardiovascular system), oxygen deficiency, and elevated levels of other gases and pollutants, depending and the processes in the facility, may include ammonia, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone.
PPM Technology's fixed multi-parameter gas detection systems can monitor the levels of harmful gases in the area and alert employees when they need to get out or when systems and processes need to be shut down, and can also activate HVAC systems when required.
Our current ranges of instruments include the Wireless IAQ Profile Monitor it can contain sensors for a maximum of 7 customer specified parameters listed below;
- Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
- Carbon Monoxide (CO)
- Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
- Sulphur Dioxide (SO2)
- Ozone (O3)
- Ammonia (NH3)
- Methane (CH4)
- Chlorine (CL)
- Water (H20)
- Motion Sensor
* Other sensor options may be available on request.
The Mini IAQ Profile Monitor can contain a maximum of 5 sensors. Both wireless instruments send the collected data wirelessly to the control pc/laptop in real-time; a large number of units can be networked together to enable accurate monitoring of an entire building.
The PPMonitor software enables the data to be viewed graphically, produce reports and statistical data, run schedules as well as alarm functions and notifications for more effective and economical building management.
The software can set limits for temperature, humidity, and for concentrations of hazardous gases, which when exceeded can activate and control the air-conditioning and ventilation systems. It can also turn heating on and off, and as a last resort trigger building alarms. The alarm can be triggered to give a warning that the gas concentration level has reached a non-critical but concerning level. A further alarm can give a more severe warning when this occurs.
The PPM Stand Alone System (SAS) offers real time, simultaneous measurement of seven customer specified Parameters. The full PPMonitor software package is integrated within the stand alone system and is displayed and can be control form the built in screen.
Our newest instrument is the 'Touch Screen' IAQ Profile Monitor is a stand-alone monitoring unit, capable of continuously monitoring up to 7 parameters. It is built with an integrated 3.5” ‘touch screen’ panel, which allows the user to navigate through the various sensors simply by touching the panel. The ‘touch screen’ software allows simple control and navigation; the user can view the data graphically, create monitoring schedules, produce reports and statistical data, as well as enable alarm functions and notifications for more effective and economical building management.
