  • Greenstars portable monitoring for CHP and flares

    Greenstar’s award-winning KTK landfill site in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, is unusual in Ireland in that it has three gas engines feeding electricity to the grid and two flares. In Ireland, while flaring is common, engines are not. The flares are run in tandem with engines so that if an engine is ramped down for repair or service, the flare ramps up automatically. All are supplied by 122 ...

  • Fixed Versus Portable Gas Detection – Which Is Better?

    Did you know that workers are needlessly injured every year as a result of leaking toxic or combustible substances? Such incidents are known to involve a wide range of hazardous gases (including ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, hydrocarbon vapors and so on). The sad reality is that most of these accidents are avoidable if only the workplace is adequately monitored. This leads ...

  • 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 ...

  • Pt. 3 - IN the MIX - Construction Safety and Gas Detection

  • Gas safety in confined spaces

    An engineer repairs buried cables; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face a common danger, 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.  ...

  • Gas safety in confined spaces

    A confined space is any space large enough for someone to enter and perform assigned work, which has limited means of entry or exit, and which is not designed for continuous worker occupancy. This covers just about every industry, including utilities, construction, hydrocarbon exploration and processing, petrochemicals, marine, agriculture, food processing and ...

  • Read about Confined Space in Construction and Atmospheric Testing Right Here!

    In 1993, 29 CFR 1910.146 went into effect as the first federal legislation governing entry into permit-required confined spaces in general industry. Because some industries, such as the construction industry, were covered by specific Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety regulations, they were exempt from the confined space entry requirements of the general industry rule. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Advances in flashpoint testing: economic impact

    Flashpoint testing is one of the oldest methods of the ASTM D02 Committee on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, which was formed in 1904. The most prevalent standards are ASTM D56 (Tag Method), D92 (Cleveland Method), and D93 (Pensky-Martens Method). These classical techniques, commonly referred to as open-cup and closedcup methods, share a common principle: A test flame is lowered into the ...
