    Measurement of methyl bromide in ambient air for monitoring workplace exposure limits in fumigation facilities

    The Series 8900 Methyl Bromide Monitoring System provides an automated, direct measurement of Methyl Bromide in ambient air. This instrument can meet and exceed the requirements for ambient methyl bromide monitoring. It is utilized in fumigation facilities and industrial plants to detect potential worker exposure to methyl bromide, resulting from mechanical failure, human error or product off gassing. Multipoint sampling options allow the analyzer to monitor multiple sample locations for greater coverage.

    Testing Fume Hood Flow Dynamics using SF6 as a Tracer Gas

    A safe laboratory environment requires an effective method for clearing toxic material from fume hoods. Since all handling of toxic materials is completed in these hoods, it is critical to have a procedure to evaluate their operation to assure adequate protection for laboratory workers. The InfraRan Specific Vapor Analyzer, factory calibrated for SF6, is an ideal instrument for measuring fume hood efficiency in accordance with ASHRAE and other standards. Manufacturers identify the flow dynamics (factors that affect air flow in the hood and performance with air) using the ratings AM (as manufactured), AI (as installed), and AU (as used). A fume hood evaluation conducted under its operational environment is critical, as these tests will indicate any installation shortcomings as well as direct workers in proper laboratory hood techniques.

    Tunnel Construction and Underground Mining Industry

    Dust can pose a particular hazard for people working in enclosed spaces such as in tunnel construction and deep mining. As the workers inhale, dust gets into their airways and can cause health problems. Poor visibility brings added exposure to risk. A reduction in the amount of dust generated also lengthens the service life of the machines. Therefore efficient dust control is particularly important in this industry.

  • Solutions for the equipment decontamination

    BioSolve Pinkwater is used for cleaning/decontaminating tools and equipment at remediation sites, in refineries, on drilling rigs, following spill cleanup, and in industrial maintenance operations. Generally applied with standard pressure washing equipment.  Most oil and tar build-up can be washed away on contact. For more severe contamination, use of a hot water system may yield better results.

  • Solutions for the vapor suppression

    BioSolve Pinkwater is used at major remediation and construction work-sites where excavation of contaminated soils may release noxious organic odors or hazardous VOCs. The dilute solution is sprayed directly onto newly exposed soil surfaces or stockpiles of contaminated material where volatilization is taking place. Used as an alternative to foam, Pinkwater creates a barrier that keeps vapors in the soil, allowing work to continue safely without disruption to workers or neighbors.
