  • Confused about Carbon Monoxide and Ventilation?

    How does it affect you, the Building Owner and HVAC Contractor? There has been a lot of press regarding Carbon Monoxide Detectors (CO) and Smoke Detectors in the news over the past year. In most cases, this is justified and certainly the attention and awareness is important. As a contractor though, how does this affect you and the HVAC market place? It’s important to understand the ...

  • Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide and Indoor Air Quality

    Chances are that unless you are hot or cold – or if you smell something funny – you probably never think about indoor air quality. However, scientists know that gases in the air that you cannot see or smell can still affect your health. Carbon Monoxide The most dangerous gas most of us will ever face is carbon monoxide (CO). Not normally occurring in nature, this ...

  • Carbon monoxide v carbon dioxide – do you know the difference?

    In March 2015, we posted a blog about the American Red Cross getting confused between carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) in a household initiative. A year later, we’d like to say that people have stopped getting their gases mixed up, but unfortunately this is not the case. ...

  • Development and Implementation of an Alternative Emissions Monitoring Program for Carbon Monoxide Compliance for Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit CO Boilers

    This paper presents the results of an alternative emissions monitoring test program for the Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit (FCCU) CO boilers at major oil refinery. Alternative emissions monitoring systems can be used in lieu of other compliance monitoring techniques (e.g., periodic emissions testing, continuous emissions monitoring) to relate monitored operating conditions which might indicate ...

  • Typical Sensor Location Considerations

    The sensor mounting location within a space may be dependent on many variables. There are no specific formulas since each application will have it’s own determining factors and priorities. These include, but are not limited to: source of gas: Is the source a combustion exhaust from a vehicle or furnace or a vapour from a tank spill, pipe leak, or faulty valve? density of ...

  • Electrochemical Sensors for Specific Gas PPM Monitoring

    Echem sensors are able to read a specific gas even when it is mixed in a background of other gases. Echem sensors are typically used to read very low PPM concentrations of toxic gases. The Echem sensor consists of a small cell holding an electrolytic solution. This solution needs a specific gas in order to produce an electrical signal. When the specific gas passes through a permeable membrane and ...

  • Upgrading from Pellistor Gas Sensors to Infrared Technology

    In this article Andy Avenell, Crowcon’s Fixed Systems Product Manager, considers the shift towards infrared (IR) gas sensor technology in the oil and gas industry. Abstract Flammable gases and vapours can present considerable dangers in many industrial applications, none more so than the processes involved in extracting, transporting and processing oil and gas. Fast and reliable ...

  • Application of nanocrystalline metal oxide gas sensors for air quality monitoring

    Increasing concern regarding health effects caused by air pollution, together with the limited spatial resolution achievable with conventional monitoring stations, have driven efforts to develop inexpensive metal oxide gas sensors for air quality measurements. The sensing mechanism is dependent on physicochemical reactions between adsorbed gas molecules and oxygen species on the oxide surface, ...

  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...

  • Gas Monitoring for Ventilation Control and Energy Management

    The growing demand for underground and enclosed parking and maintenance garages (resulting from limitations on land availability) has increased the awareness and need for proper ventilation and control systems. In addition, increased health and safety programs have only added to the concerns of toxic and combustible gases in confined or enclosed spaces. Historically, ventilation and make-up air ...

  • Intellisenc Building Air Quality Controllers control CO2, CO, VOC, O3, Humidity and temerpature.

    The quality of the air we breathe indoor (Indoor Air Quality, IAQ) is typically defined by the air chemical or gas composition and particulates. The sensors available today for sensing the gas composition of IAQ have many features and options. There is a wide application base for IAQ sensing with the most common being the regulation of HVAC ventilation systems for lower energy cost. Using an IAQ ...


  • 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 ...
