  • 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: 10 Essential facts

    Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odourless, colourless gas that is found naturally occurring in the atmosphere. It exists at around 0.2 parts per million (ppm) and this is deemed to be a safe level for humans. To give context, oxygen naturally exists at 209,000 ppm. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Don’t Skate on Thin Ice - Co Poisoning at Ice Rinks

    If you were asked to name some places where carbon monoxide (CO poisoning) may occur, your first thought may be places like hotels and commercial kitchens, as well as people’s homes. However, CO poisoning can take place in venues you may have not thought of before, like an ice rink. ...
