  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) Versus Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

    Carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are often mistaken for one another. Both gases are odourless and colorless and target the cardiovascular system. Both gases can enter the body through inhalation, skin and / or eye. Similar symptoms that both gases have in common are headaches, dizziness, seizures, and hallucination. Most people have a hard time determining the difference and do not ...

  • Carbon dioxide gas case study

    Application Moisture] is measured in carbon dioxide gas pipelines and processing plants. Problem The presence of moisture in carbon dioxide gas promotes corrosion. Perhaps more significant is the fact that moisture will readily form ice when pressure is reduced. The ice can readily freeze up pressure regulators, valves, and orifice plates causing a loss of flow and even ice ...

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Safety

    Know the Gases, Know the Dangers and Protect Yourself Do you know the differences between carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2)? If you don’t then there are no guarantees your safety measures will be adequate. These two different gases are often mixed up with people becoming confused over which they need to protect against, when and how. ...

  • Chlorine Dioxide gas detection: A comprehensive guide

    Introduction Some years agoago, the bleaching process in the paper industry was changed from using Chlorine (Cl2) as bleaching agent to Chlorine dioxide (ClO2). This was a challenge forThis posed a major challenge to industrial hygienists, as there were no sensors or detectors available that were specific to Chlorine dioxide: There was no sensor technology for gas detectors available that ...

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Leak in Soda Machines

    Carbon dioxide, also known as CO2, is a very well known gas type but not everyone knows how deadly it is. Most people know it as a gas that humans exhale but commercially, it is manufactured and shipped as a liquefied compressed gas or is used as dry ice in its solid form. A common use of CO2 gas is in soda fountain machines to carbonate soft drinks by pressurizing the CO2 ...

  • Bedbug Problem? Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Solution.

    Bedbug infestation is an extremely common problem worldwide. Bedbugs are small, nocturnal parasites that feed off of warm blooded animals and humans. They can survive in a wide range of temperature, low humidity and live for a year without eating. Adults can measure up to 5 mm in length and up to 3 mm wide. They are attracted to carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in human respiration and body warmth. ...

  • The Benefits of Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide for Food Processing

    The Benefits of Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide for Food Processing A blend of gases -- carbon dioxide, oxygen, and nitrogen -- help preserve packaged food by reducing the amount of oxygen inside the sealed package. Gas flushing or Modified Atmosphere Packaging, as the process is called, also reduces the amount of processing that food must undergo. This preserves the quality and ...

  • Concerning the Role of Supercritical Carbon Dioxide in SN1 Reactions

    A series of SN1-type reactions has been studied under various conditions to clarify the role of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) as reaction medium for this kind of transformations. The application of scCO2 did not result in higher yields in any of the experiments in comparison to those under neat conditions or in the presence of other inert compressed gases. High-pressure ...

  • Why a CO2 monitor may be needed? Where carbon dioxide leaks occur

    Do you work with carbon dioxide (or CO2) in your industry? If so, then you may need a carbon dioxide monitor to check for gas leaks that could pose a hazard to your workplace safety. Learn common scenarios where carbon dioxide can leak and see how a CO2 detector can minimize your risk.  Industries Where CO2 Monitors Can Make a ...

  • Gas Detection and Monitoring Systems

    In greenhouse applications, the accurate measurement of a number of environmental parameters such as carbon dioxide concentration, temperature, light intensity, water, humidity, pH and nutrient levels using sophisticated sensors is used to create a controlled environment for optimising plant growth rates while minimising energy usage. Carbon dioxide concentration is also one of the best ...

  • Indoor Air Quality and Hazardous Gas Detection

    Indoor air contaminants come in a variety of forms and originate from multiple sources. Interactions between building materials and furnishings, activities and equipment inside the building, internal temperature and relative humidity, filtration and ventilation system operations, climate and building occupants all contribute to the indoor air quality (IAQ) in commercial, industrial, residential ...

  • Leak detection in semiconductor fab gas processes

    Problem Statement Often times in semiconductor fabs moisture levels are monitored to ensure that products aren’t damaged by excess moisture in the process. If there are above normal levels of moisture, pinpointing the source of that moisture can be difficult. The moisture could be evolving from impurities in gas tanks or leaks in the sampling lines. One way to avoid downtime ...

  • Early Ethylene Glycol Leak Detection in Power Plant Steam Condensate Is Essential

    Fossil fuel and nuclear power plants use heat exchangers to condense process steam back into liquid form. A heat exchanger works by transferring heat from one medium (steam) to another medium (air, water, or ethylene glycol). Many newer, closed cooling water system, power plants use ethylene glycol use ethylene glycol (C2 H6 O2 ) as a heat transfer fluid because of its high-heat transfer ...
