  • Why the use of a CO2 monitor may not be the best solution for protecting workers against leaks from beverage dispensing systems in the fast food industry

    Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is the primary compressed gas used for dispensing beverages at fast food chains. This gas is also used in restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores. When CO2 leaks into a confined space or basement, it creates a very unsafe environment for employees because it lowers the concentration of breathable oxygen.  History seems to repeat itself all too often while ...

  • Are you using the right monitor for CO2?

    Carbon dioxide, (CO2) detectors are commonly used to protect workers from leaks in fast food establishments and restaurants.  The OSHA, ACGIH and NIOSH CO2 threshold limit value for 8 hours, (TLV) is 5,000 PPM, and the ACGIH and NIOSH short-term exposure level, (STEL) is 30,000 PPM.  Although these agencies established worker exposure levels, they also all state: ...

  • PureAire’s Methyl Bromide Monitor Gains Exposure from the Department of Pesticide Regulation

    There has been an increased awareness for methyl bromide safety in the past few months. Over a year ago two employees at a cold storage warehouse got physically ill from high levels of methyl bromide. The Ch3br gas was off gassing from the products causing a higher than safe level for the employees. Commodities being shipped from overseas must be fumigated in ports, or warehouses upon arrival to ...

  • PureAire Methyl Bromide Monitor Gains Exposure from Lowered 5ppm criteria to 1 ppm Limit
