  • Gas detection analyzers for chemical & pharmaceutical processes - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals - Pharmaceutical

    Gas detection analyzers for chemical & pharmaceutical processes

    Chemical and pharmaceutical facilities use a variety of hazardous gases and solvents in their production processes. Whenever these substances are transported, processed or stored, the potential risks are high for hazardous conditions. These substances must be continuously monitored to protect personnel and facilities from accidental releases or leakage. Our various lines of hazardous gas monitoring systems benefit the chemical and pharmaceutical industry in the following applications.

  • Gas detection analyzers for coil coating industry - Metal

    Gas detection analyzers for coil coating industry

    Coil Coating is a high-temperature solvent vapor monitoring application in which rolls of aluminum or steel are coated with a color finish, oven cured to desired specs and sold to makers of cans, rain gutters, home appliances, building & automotive products and other fabrications. Coil coating requires the use of our PrevEx Flammability Analyzers to monitor the flammability of the solvent vapor driven off during the drying process. PrevEx analyzers accurately measure solvent mixtures and can withstand the...

  • Gas detection analyzers for pollution control - Air and Climate - Air Pollution Treatment

    Gas detection analyzers for pollution control

    Government and environmental groups are forcing industries with medium to high VOC exhausts to reduce emissions by as much as 98%. Incineration using pollution control devices such as oxidizers and flare stacks is one way to bring the exhaust emissions in line with the regulations. Capturing and reusing solvent in a solvent recovery system is another way.

  • Gas detection analyzers for processing ovens & dryers - Metal

    Gas detection analyzers for processing ovens & dryers

    Many industries are involved in coating products with solvent-borne materials and then employing ovens or dryers to remove the solvents from the finished product. The key hazard is an explosion from the build up of solvent vapors in the oven or dryer atmosphere. This buildup could occur by a malfunction in the production process such as: a sudden or improper amount of coating, a change in ventilation controls or excessive speed. In any of these cases, the concentration of flammable vapor has an opportunity to...

  • Gas detection analyzers for pulp & paper mills - Pulp & Paper

    Gas detection analyzers for pulp & paper mills

    Flammable non-condensible gases (NCG’s) are byproducts of the wood pulping process. Health and pollution regulations prohibit the release of these gases into the atmosphere. They are usually eliminated by passing them through an incinerator or by using them as fuel in the burner of a boiler or kiln. The incinerator, boiler or kiln however can be damaged by NCG’s which have built up explosive levels. Pulp mills require the use of our PrevEx Flammability Analyzers to monitor the NCG stream and detect...

  • Gas detection analyzers for semiconductor industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries - Gas

    Gas detection analyzers for semiconductor industry

    Semiconductor manufacturing facilities employ a number of hazardous gases in their production processes. Whenever these gases are stored, distributed or used in manufacturing processes, there exists the potential for a hazardous condition. The primary hazards associated with these gases include fire, explosion, and contamination resulting in product loss or unscheduled preventative maintenance. These gases must be continuously monitored to ensure the health and safety of employees, to protect property, as well...

  • Gas detection analyzers for solvent based printing industry - Printing

    Gas detection analyzers for solvent based printing industry

    Solvent based inks in different colors and patterns are applied to paper, plastic, film and foil substrates. Finished products include all sorts of wrapping paper, wall covering, candy wrappers, flexible food packages, shrink labels, high quality magazines and many, many more. These industries employ ovens or dryers to remove the solvents from the finished product.

  • Gas detection analyzers for storage - Manufacturing, Other

    Gas detection analyzers for storage

    Flammable & combustible liquids are found in virtually every industrial plant. The quantities of these can vary from a few ounces in aerosol cans to several thousand gallons in bulk storage tanks. The principal hazard associated with storage is the accidental discharge or release of the flammable or combustible material into the surrounding area.

  • Gas detection analyzers for wastewater treatment industry - Water and Wastewater - Water Treatment

    Gas detection analyzers for wastewater treatment industry

    Regulations prohibit facilities from discharging flammable or explosive wastes from their processes into the wastewater collection system. These wastes are not only a fire and explosion hazard but they can also effect the efficient and effective operation of the treatment facility. PrevEx Flammability analyzers are used to continuously monitor the waste stream for flammable gases and vapors. Their unique design and operating technology make them the ideal analyzers for the harsh conditions found in the sewer...
