  • Detecting Gases: What You Can`t Smell Can Hurt You

    Walking through a drill-site area, a worker smells rotten eggs and stops tor a minute or two to assess where a gas leak might exist. Rubbing his itchv eves as he investigates further, he notices that he no longer smells the tell¬tale hydrogen sulphide odour. He does not realize that the gas has deadened his olfactory senses and unless he leaves the area within seconds, he could lose ...

  • Calculating the cost savings for refrigerant gas leak detection

    The real benefits of refrigerant gas leak detection Following on from the last article, we feel that it’s natural to then discuss some of the practical reasons (cost savings) that will encourage the industry to take action and reduce their F-Gas emissions. Who requires refrigerant leak detection under the F-Gas proposals? There are a ...

  • What is a Room Oxygen Deficiency Monitor?

    Many industries use compressed gas to create products. While compressed gases such as nitrogen are low-cost, easy to use, and flexible in a range of industries, these gases have a hidden downside: They displace oxygen from the air, which puts your workers at risk of suffocation if there's a leak. A room oxygen monitor checks levels of oxygen and provides in-time alerts if there's a gas leak. ...

  • Fugitive Gas Emissions In The Petroleum & Natural Gas Industry

    Challenge: Fugitive emissions in the petroleum and natural gas industry can come from a variety of sources and are classified as intentional (venting from tanks, compressor vents and stacks) or unintentional (equipment wear and tear, improper assembly, damage or manufacturing defects).  Most of these fugitive gas leaks are considered insignificant or  too small to ...

  • Keeping Healthcare/SPD Workers Safe from Exposure: 2 Very Different Options

    Continuous Monitoring vs. Badges Badges are designed to provide the Time Weighted Average (TWA) data for the total exposure period. They contain an absorption medium that reacts with or absorbs and holds the target chemical from the air to be analyzed later, which indicates the exposure after the fact. Badges, sample tubes, and wet chemical methods were the predominant technologies for monitoring ...

  • Refrigerant leak detection is heavily regulated by government agencies

    Refrigerant leak monitoring in refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) systems and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC-R) equipment is very challenging, even for the most skilled HVAC-R technician. The leak could be well concealed from view in tubing, a system component, or in an operating or safety control component. With the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) laws documented ...

  • Detect Hydrogen Gas and Flames

    Under day-to-day conditions, people cannot see, smell, or taste the presence of hydrogen gas. Hydrogen, however, is very flammable and requires only a small amount of energy to ignite. In fact, if leaking from a pipe at a high enough pressure, hydrogen gas can self ignite without the aid of an external energy source. Working together, ...
