Carbon Monoxide (CO) Monitoring Applications

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitoring

    Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal poisoning in many industrialized countries. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless and tasteless gas caused by the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas to the human body, when inhaled it binds to hemoglobin, myoglobin, and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase reducing oxygen storage, transport and respiration in these organelles.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for process control

    Gas monitors controlling heat treatment of metals. Endothermic gas is a mixture of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane and other gases that is required for hardening or carburising of steel. By carefully controlling the amounts of each gas and the temperature in the treatment furnace, the steel surface can be hardened to provide long lasting components such as gears and tools.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for building and IAQ

    Precise measurement of air quality. The carbon dioxide content of room air gives a measure of the air quality, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the people occupying the building. Air quality can be adversely affected by increased levels of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulates, or bacteria. Increased ventilation reduces the level of all of these unwanted contaminants. Measuring the CO2 concentration provides an economical way of ensuring that there is sufficient air circulation and prevents over-ventilation which can add unnecessary heating or cooling costs.

    Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Gasification

    Application: Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen, which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification.

    Methane and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Landfill Applications

    Application: In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas.

    Continuous emissions monitoring for steel mills

    The nature of steel manufacturing processes places severe limitations on the monitoring methods that can be used. Aggressive environments combined with high levels of particulates and gases make the choice very limited.

  • Computerized gas flow instrumentation for the food packaging (MAP)

    More and more food packaging companies are utilizing Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) or Equilibrium Modified Atmosphere Packaging (EMAP) to preserve the shelf life and/or appearance of their packed food. At Environics, we know it is essential that your MAP/EMAP gases be consistent and accurate in order to guarantee the desired quality in the end products.

  • CO2 / CO Monitoring in Air

    CO (carbon monoxide) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) are generally measured to ensure process control. CO2 is the desired product and CO is undesired in combustion since it will explode in high enough concentrations. CO2 and CO concentrations can also be used to determine other process-specific efficiencies. Continuous emissions monitoring equipment that can be calibrated as a CO and CO2 analyzer is thereby essential for process control.

  • Gas detection for the steel industry

    Regarded by many as providing the backbone to modern society, the steel industry is one which continues to evolve. Whether it is geographic shifts in demand or production, or challenges brought by energy or raw material costs, companies continue to develop their processes and facilities to meet them. Alongside these changes companies have also realised the requirement to minimise downtime due to unplanned maintenance and protect workers from exposure to toxic or flammable gas hazards.

    Measurement solution for hydrogen fuel cell testing

    As the alternatives to fossil fuels for power generation and automotive power become more widespread and preferred, so has increased the research and testing of hydrogen gas in fuel cells. The hydrogen (H2) gas used in fuel cell has to be free of impurities in order to make the fuel cell as efficient as possible and so quality thresholds have been set in legislation. Such legislation as SAE J2719 provides hydrogen fuel quality standards for proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell vehicles. If impurities above these thresholds are present in the H2 fuel then there is a risk of not only making the cell inefficient, but also unrecoverable back to its peak operating voltage as the fuel cell electrode becomes poisoned.
