  • Don’t Let the Pressure of Compressed Gas Get to You

    What’s at Stake? The hazards associated with compressed gas include oxygen displacement, fires, explosions, toxic effects from certain gases, reactivity and projectile concerns. What’s the Danger? An employee was killed when a compressed gas cylinder turned into a projectile because its valve was knocked off. Another worker suffocated after ...

  • A Two Channel Gas Detector for Monitoring Hazardous Gases in the Workplace

    The potential for exposure to hazardous gases is a concern in many workplace environments. To ensure the safety of the workers, equipment, and the facility, areas presenting a gas hazard should be monitored by gas detectors. Commercial buildings that share a warehouse with manufacturing and/or service work in the back and offices in the front are a prime place for harmful gases and vapours ...

  • Explosion Proof vs Intrinsically Safe Gas Detectors

    It only takes a spark to start a fire or cause an explosion, especially when flammable gases or vapours are present under the right conditions. There are industries that operate in these types of hazardous environments where the potential for explosions is extremely high, such as chemical plants, oil refineries, paint shops, cleaning facilities, tanks and loading facilities for flammable gases, ...

  • Are GAS-FIRED Burner Technologies Really The Best Choice for ISTR Cleanups?

    Its an exciting time. In-Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) shows great promise and has proven to be an extremely effective method for cleaning a wide range of Contaminants of Concern (COC’s) at contaminated sites. Most recently, gas-fired soil heating technologies are entering the market with promises of much cheaper natural gas heating, faster setup and heating times, less heaters required ...

  • Do you know your hazardous gases?

    I’ve never had a problem determining the difference between Ant and Dec as I was an avid fan of Byker Grove as a child. But many people struggle. To avoid future confusion PJ was the one blinded in an unfortunate paint balling incident and Duncan had floppy hair. For any non UK readers the same might apply to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen – although I’m pretty certain they always ...

  • Monitoring Multiple Gas Hazards in Ice Arenas

    The equipment used in an arena such as an ice re-surfacer, ice edger, floor sweepers, lift trucks and other special equipment are more often powered by fuel than electricity. The exhaust produced by the gas, propane or diesel fuel powered machines emits, into the air, carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulates. Ammonia (NH3) is commonly used in the ice chiller mechanical room ...

  • Boskalis and our BBV Pumps environmentally friendly high flow pump unit

    Boskalis Nederland is a part of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. Boskalis was established in 1910 and has expanded from a local dredging contractor to a leading global maritime services company with over 11.000 employees. Originally, dredging and earth moving were the core activities of the company. They are now additionally active in the dredging and inland infra, and offshore energy sectors. The ...

  • Indoor Air Quality and Hazardous Gas Detection

    Indoor air contaminants come in a variety of forms and originate from multiple sources. Interactions between building materials and furnishings, activities and equipment inside the building, internal temperature and relative humidity, filtration and ventilation system operations, climate and building occupants all contribute to the indoor air quality (IAQ) in commercial, industrial, residential ...

  • Glutaraldehyde – Health Hazards in Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

    Glutaraldehyde is very similar to Formaldehyde in its structure and uses in the healthcare industry. Chemically, Glutaraldehyde exists at room temperature as a liquid, whereas Formaldehyde exists under those conditions as a gas, which can easily be dissolved in water. Glutaraldehyde is very similar to formaldehyde in its structure and uses in the healthcare industry. Chemically, ...

  • Generation using gas-fuelled engines in South Africa – an overview

    Most gas engines are Otto cycle spark ignition internal combustion reciprocating engines using natural gas as the primary fuel. Smaller models utilise stochiometric combustion while the larger engines are lean burn engines with pre-chamber ignition systems. The engines are coupled with packaged generator sets, ...

  • Flammable Hazards

    Flammable Hazards The difference between a gas and a vapor is that vapors arise from liquids, whereas gases are normally in a gaseous state. Flammable vapors present additional sampling concerns (for example, we must prevent vapors from returning to the liquid state during sampling). The 3 Elements of Fire Three elements must be present for a flammable ...

  • Basic Principle of Safety

    A basic principle of safety can be illustrated by the accident triangle. This principle states that for each accidental death that occurs, there are X instances of human injury, Y instances of property damage, and Z instances of what we will call Near Misses (in which the hazardous situation exists but an accident does not occur). Common examples of Near Miss behavior include smoking in bed, or ...

  • Classifying Hazardous Areas

    The IEC is composed of approximately 40 countries including the United States. The purpose of the IEC is to establish standards for a wide variety of electrical products with the intent of encouraging international trade. The IEC has assigned a technical committee, TC 31, to develop recommendations covering equipment, testing procedures and classification standards for areas where the potential ...

  • CO2 Gas Hazards in the Brewing Industry

    The hazards associated with CO2 in the brewing industry are well known, yet people still die needlessly every year in tragic and completely avoidable accidents in breweries. Just last year in Germany, which has a good safety record, two workers died in separate incidents at the same brewery. In the first incident, the owner was found dead with his head and torso in a beer mixing tank. It is ...

  • Risk–benefit–cost prioritisation of independent protection layers for a liquefied natural gas terminal

    Liquefied natural gas (LNG) operations and facilities are growing in scale and number in many countries driven by the key role of natural gas for increasing regional and local energy security, particularly for electric power generation. While the industry has achieved remarkably high levels of safety, the reduction of residual risks associated with the unloading, storage and distribution in LNG ...

  • Fixed price contract versus incentive–based contract in the oil and gas industry

    The research question of this paper is to analyse when an operator and a service provider prefer a fixed price contract, common in the oil and gas industry, versus the uncommon incentive–based contract. The contracts are modelled with 20 parameters and one free choice variable which is the time to complete the project determined by the service provider. The method is to determine the ...

  • Are you using the right monitor for CO2?

    Carbon dioxide, (CO2) detectors are commonly used to protect workers from leaks in fast food establishments and restaurants.  The OSHA, ACGIH and NIOSH CO2 threshold limit value for 8 hours, (TLV) is 5,000 PPM, and the ACGIH and NIOSH short-term exposure level, (STEL) is 30,000 PPM.  Although these agencies established worker exposure levels, they also all state: ...

  • Prioritising sources of risk at liquefied natural gas storage terminals in Mexico

    Liquefied natural gas (LNG) operations and facilities are growing in scale and number in developed and developing countries. The associated hazards to human health and safety and the environment are being addressed systematically. This paper discusses and refines existing methods to perform identification, screening, and prioritisation for a variety of sources of risk in LNG processes. The steps ...
