  • 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 ...

  • Not All Hazards are the Same: Design considerations for matching flame and gas hazards to detector technologies

    Not all flame and gas hazards in facilities are the same, therefore the detection technology chosen should be specific to the type of hazard to be detected. How do users select technologies to see certain fires or detect certain gases? The intent of this paper is to give a broad introduction to the selection and use of flame and gas detector technologies. We will answer questions such as these: ...

  • State of Oregon acquires CEREX micro hound multi-gas analyzers for hazmat first responders

    Abstract: "During the overhaul phase of a structure fire, firefighters commonly doff their self contained breathing apparatus SCBA protection for easier working conditions and traditionally rely upon carbon monoxide (CO) detection as the determinate for this action. A CO level of below 35 ppm has traditionally been the acceptable limit for firefighters to wear this lesser level of ...

  • Monitoring flammable gas in boiler houses

    The most common fuels in use for space and water heating are Oil, Natural Gas and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). By far the most popular, clean and cost effective solutions are utilising Natural Gas or LPG. The traditional safety measure derived from the time of oil fired boiler houses is the use of a fusible link placed above the each boiler. The fusible link is intended to melt if it becomes ...

  • If you can`t stand the CO2, get out of the kitchen - part 1

    There are two potentially dangerous types of gas in a commercial kitchen: 1) the flammable ones used for cooking (e.g. methane/natural gas; propane/liquefied petroleum gas); and 2) the noxious, gaseous products of combustion such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons. It would be good to know how to avoid them. But a search for advice on kitchen ventilation threatens to drown the ...
