  • Flammable Hazards

    Flammable Hazards The difference between a gas and a vapor is that vapors arise from liquids, whereas gases are normally in a gaseous state. Flammable vapors present additional sampling concerns (for example, we must prevent vapors from returning to the liquid state during sampling). The 3 Elements of Fire Three elements must be present for a flammable ...

  • Improving Safety by Conforming to Industry Standards and Certifications

    Abstract Globally, safety standards play a key role in designing and executing gas and flameame detection projects. How can these standards, which might seem cumbersome at times, help users make informed decisions? What information can be used to assist in conforming to standards and maximizing safety? This paper will analyze standards from an end-user view, will consider ...

  • Piston Diaphragm Pump

    Piston Diaphragm Pump Emmerich’s competitors technologically speaking are Abel, Feluwa, and Geho. Each manufacturer have slight differences which we taunt, but in reality they are all excellent pumps.
