The anesthetic gases and vapors which leak into the indoor atmosphere during medical procedures are considered waste anesthetic gases (WAGs). The exposure is of relevance to thousands of professionals in hospitals, operating theaters, patient recovery rooms, dental offices, and veterinary clinics around the world, who may be continually exposed to the waste anesthetic gases during their workday. Typical gases of concern include nitrous oxide N2O and several halogenated compounds in vapor form, such as sevoflurane,...
Food quality and safety are two of the most challenging issues in the current regulatory environment that are of great concern to today`s health-conscious consumers. Increasingly, Ozone (O3) gas is being used in these important applications as an organic, economical, and environmentally friendly sanitation solution compared with conventional methods. This same approach is also becoming more prominent in the Medical industry for the same reasons. Whether you are generating ozone as part of a process or keeping...
Our range of safety analysers can offer early detection of fire / explosive conditions. From CO monitors for pulverising coal mills through to UV flame and smoke detectors installed on oil rigs and the cross-channel passenger shuttles, operated by Eurotunnel.
Measurement of greenhouse gases released from soil and water surface forms an important part of climate change study. Microbial activity in the soil or for instance the melting of permafrost releases greenhouse gases such as Methane and nitrous oxide N2O into the atmosphere. Measurement of the concentration for these gases inside an open-bottom soil chamber placed on the soil over time tells the emission rate (flux) per chamber footprint area.
Monitoring gasses during several processes of mineral processing is essential to improve the efficiency of the plant and therefore lower the costs. AMETEK Land are acknowledged leaders in the field of gas monitoring in multiple industries.
The combustion operations the iron and steel processes produce emissions which are subject to strict environmental regulations. Plants are required to monitor and control these emissions. This also provides process efficiency benefits.
Our range of gas monitoring instruments are used to measure the constituents of Biogas and monitor Landfill sites for Methane (CH4), Carbon dioxide (CO2), Hydrogen sulphide (H2S), Carbon Monoxide(CO) and Oxygen (O2).
The purpose of determining water (moisture) content in liquid EDC (ethylene dichloride) is to decrease risk of corrosion and damage to the cracking furnace. The on-line analyzer system uses a selective H2O measurement by means of multi-wavelength infrared.
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.
Application: The majority (around 60%) of the coal seams currently being extracted worldwide are so far underground that open cast mining cannot take place and, therefore, underground mining techniques need to be used. Consequently, workers have to enter and work in confined spaces. One of the major problems that this creates is the dangers from Methane (CH4) gas which occurs in Mine gas.
Emission monitoring plays critical roles in a number of diverse industrial processes. AMETEK Land provides expert solutions to support product quality, process efficiency and safety. Our industry-leading gas monitors deliver essential data for industry sectors including metals, non-wovens, paper and plastics.

The measurement of occupational exposure to pollutants in the operating room is an essential tool for the detection of chemical, linked not only to the occurrence of infections and various diseases, but also to reduced alertness and performance of staff. To meet the above requirements, ETG proposes the use of ‘INFRARUN, thanks to the high sensitivity and stability and the very wide dynamic range, INFRARUN is the ideal tool to make a continuous sampling in the short and long-term gaseous contaminants in the...
