  • The dangers of carbon dioxide

    We are often asked about the effects of carbon dioxide on the body and how to tell if there is a gas leak. As a result of this, we have created this post to provide additional information about exposure to carbon dioxide. What is carbon dioxide? Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a gas which occurs naturally in the Earth’s atmosphere at ...

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Leak in Soda Machines

    Carbon dioxide, also known as CO2, is a very well known gas type but not everyone knows how deadly it is. Most people know it as a gas that humans exhale but commercially, it is manufactured and shipped as a liquefied compressed gas or is used as dry ice in its solid form. A common use of CO2 gas is in soda fountain machines to carbonate soft drinks by pressurizing the CO2 ...

  • Bedbug Problem? Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Solution.

    Bedbug infestation is an extremely common problem worldwide. Bedbugs are small, nocturnal parasites that feed off of warm blooded animals and humans. They can survive in a wide range of temperature, low humidity and live for a year without eating. Adults can measure up to 5 mm in length and up to 3 mm wide. They are attracted to carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in human respiration and body warmth. ...

  • Greene King Brewery gas leak – carbon dioxide in breweries

    On Thursday 15 October 2015, a carbon dioxide leak occurred at the Greene King Brewery on an estate in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. Emergency services were sent to the incident and nearby residents were evacuated as a precaution. Twenty people were rescued from the building, and the incident was quickly taken control of. ...

  • Chlorine Dioxide gas detection: A comprehensive guide

    Introduction Some years agoago, the bleaching process in the paper industry was changed from using Chlorine (Cl2) as bleaching agent to Chlorine dioxide (ClO2). This was a challenge forThis posed a major challenge to industrial hygienists, as there were no sensors or detectors available that were specific to Chlorine dioxide: There was no sensor technology for gas detectors available that ...

  • Portable laser gas detector systems for landfill CH4 and CO2 monitoring

    There has recently been a marked increase in interest in detecting and quantifying emissions of the greenhouse gases (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from landfills in North America and Europe. The primary drivers for this increased interest are: new and pending legislation requires demonstrated reductions in GHG emissions; permits to expand existing facilities require more accurate ...

  • Do you have the right portable extinguishers? A quick knockdown.

    Why do we have portable fire extinguishers? It may appear an obvious question however many struggle to answer this and I have heard many different analogies over the years. Fires in the workplace tend to start as small incidents and this is where portable fire extinguishers come into their own. By extinguishing, slowing down or preventing the dangerous escalation of the fire; an ...

  • Portable biogas bottling plant: a practical approach for using biogas as transportation fuel in rural areas

    Biogas contains about 65% methane, 30-35% carbon dioxide, traces of hydrogen sulphide and moisture. It has been observed that diesel engines get severely damaged when operated on biogas for long duration. Presence of these corrosive gases make biogas unsuitable for transportation application. By removing CO2 and trace acidic gases like H2S and moisture, biogas can be converted into natural gas ...

  • Laser gas detector systems for greenhouse gas emissions monitoring

    Two types of portable laser based gas detector for measuring emissions of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from oil and gas operations are described. A scanning open path detector was developed within a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the USEPA. This system scans multiple paths across an area source in rapid succession, enabling calculation ...

  • Why it is important to measure Dissolved Oxygen in aeration lanes

    Dissolved Oxygen is a key parameter in the efficient treatment of waste water during the secondary treatment stage; the point at which organic waste is oxidised to form carbon dioxide, water and nitrogen compounds. It is important to act on accurate measurements of Dissolved Oxygen in activated sludge plants for the following reasons: To ...

  • Can phytocapping technique reduce methane emission from municipal landfills?

    Landfill gases, predominantly methane and carbon dioxide, are produced by the biodegradation of organic wastes. Biodegradation occur, if the water comes in contact with the buried waste. Techniques such as clay capping are used to minimise percolation of water into the landfill, or gas collection system installed to reduce methane emission into the atmosphere. The use of clay cap has proven not ...

  • A Four Channel Gas Detector for Wastewater Treatment Plants

    Common hazardous gases found in wastewater treatment plant facilities are hydrogen sulphide, methane, ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine and oxygen deficiency. Some facilities may also use ozone, chlorine dioxide or sodium hypochlorite with the chlorine during the sanitization treatment process. Furthermore, sulphur dioxide is often used to de-chlorinate the water once the treatment process is ...

  • 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 ...

  • Gas Safety in Confined Spaces

    Introduction An offshore worker ensures a vessel is safe to enter; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face common dangers, despite working in widely different industries.  Gas-related injury poses a serious threat in any confined space where the free movement of air is limited. A confined space ...

  • Sand Plant

    Sand Plant,Sand Processing Plant The sand plant reserve came from a old stream bed, that had a 20 to 30 ft thick sand deposit in it. It was sampled and the lab testing revealed that there was less than 0.03% iron, and a few other metals (TiO2, Al2O3, MgO). The sand plant equipment length of the deposit was over a mile, so ...
