  • Boiler Dissolved Oxygen Control

    DISSOLVED OXYGEN CHEMISTRY Dissolved Oxygen (DO) is a measure of the amount of oxygen, usually thought of as a gas, that is dissolved in a liquid such as water. Oxygen is essential to life and is also the most common element found taking part in corrosion reactions. DO can be thought of as the fuel needed for the corrosion process to proceed. It is the corrosion reactions that necessitate ...

  • Oxygen Monitors now Required for Nitrogen, Argon, Helium, and CO2 use in Denver

    The Colorado city of Denver recently passed a new law that requires facilities that use insert gas to install oxygen deficiency monitors wherever these gases are used in excess of 100 pounds. Learn what the new law requires from businesses and how an oxygen sensor protects your employees, your business, and your peace of mind.  What Denver's New Law Requires  The law ...

  • Use of Oxygen Monitors for Nitrogen, Argon, or Cryogenics and Where They Are installed

    An oxygen deficiency monitor or O2 monitor is found in many settings where colorless, odorless gases -- including nitrogen, argon, CO2, and cryogenic gases -- are used. Always monitoring, the oxygen detector can tell when gas levels rise above those deemed safe, and let off a timely alarm. Learn which settings commonly use ...

  • PureAire Oxygen (O2) Monitor Used in MRI Rooms Around The World

    In the early 1980’s, there were 12 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines in use.  Today, there are approximately 25,000 around the globe. One item in common is their use of Helium. Liquid Helium is most often associated with party balloons and funny voices, but 20% of the world supply of this super-cooled gas is used in MRI equipment. Liquid helium is extremely cold ...

  • The beverage industry`s incorrect way of monitoring for CO2 leaks

    Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is the primary compressed gas used for beverages at major fast food chains. This gas is also used in restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores. When CO2 leaks into a confined space or basement, this creates a very unsafe workplace for employees by lowering the breathable oxygen. History seems to repeat itself all too often while dealing with CO2. Due to the CO2 leaks ...
