Gas monitoring instruments and systems for print factories

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Typical modern printing processes utilize solvent-based dyes. The evaporation of the dye solvents into the ambient air during the printing process may expose the workers to various chemicals. Depending on the type of solvents in case, the solvents have different long term exposure limits, which should be obeyed. Component specific measurements are necessary to protect the workers from exposure while avoiding unnecessary interruptions to the printing process from false alarms.

Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Gasification

by Edinburgh Instruments Ltd     based in Livingston, UNITED KINGDOM

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.

Gas Detection Solutions for Sour Gas

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

The sour (H2S) content of hydrocarbon fields worldwide is increasing, and many natural gas fields have very high H2S – sometimes in excess of 50%. H2S is extremely dangerous because, although people can smell it at low levels (about 5 ppb) it does not smell much worse at the exposure limit value of 10 ppm or at potentially fatal levels in excess of 100 ppm. Therefore smell is an unreliable means of determining dangerous levels. Existing H2S point sensors are maintenance intensive, slow to respond and provide limited coverage. Most H2S sensors do not work reliably in hot or cold weather, or in humid marine environments.

Gas detection for the winery and brewery Industry

by Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd - a Halma company     based in Milton Park, UNITED KINGDOM

Once an archetypal example of manual production, the winery and brewery industries now incorporate sophisticated processes to ensure high quality levels and efficient output. In some cases traditional approaches have simply been scaled up or put under more stringent monitoring, whilst in others innovations such as nitrogen-pressurised canning have been introduced. However, whichever approach has been followed there is also a growing realisation of the gas hazards that are associated with both new and old processes, and the need to protect workers from toxic gas exposure and asphyxiation risks.

Gas Detection Solutions for Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Safety

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a very useful chemical used in a variety of industries. However, HF is highly toxic with potential fatal consequences with exposure to humans, so facilities that make or use HF should exercise great care. Nevertheless, there is always the risk of leaks from process elements such as valves, pump seals and storage vessels. Tanker loading, transporting and unloading operations also provide opportunity for HF releases. Industrial processes that make or use HF typically have arrays of point sensors distributed throughout the unit. However, these sensors are maintenance intensive and have relatively slow response times. In addition, a point sensor will not detect an HF release unless it is located directly in the area of that release. Electrochemical HF sensors also respond to chlorine, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide, resulting in false alarms.

Measurement of acetaldehyde, methanol, & benzene in CO2 applications for gas manufacturers & food & beverage industry

by MOCON - Baseline     based in Lyons, COLORADO (USA)

The BevAlert Model 8900 provides direct measurement of Acetaldehyde, Methanol, and Benzene (AMB) in Carbon Dioxide. The instrument is utilized by Specialty Gas Manufacturers and the Food and Beverage Industry to monitor trace impurities in CO2 used in carbonated beverages. The BevAlert Model 8900 employs a photoionization detector (PID). The AMB in the gas sample are physically separated using proprietary GC columns. A dual-column configuration with timed backflush to vent is used to strip off moisture and heavier gases. At sample injection, a fixed volume of sample is carried through the pre-cut column. The backflush is timed so that primarily the AMB and other similar compounds continue on to the analytical column. Contaminants are then backflushed to vent. Acetaldehyde, Methanol, and Benzene are separated from potentially interfering components on the analytical column and elute to the detector for analysis.

Remote monitoring stations

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

The Water Survey of Canada, a division of Environment Canada, is a federal government agency responsible for collection, interpretation and dissemination of water source data and information. As a division of Environment Canada, the Water Survey of Canada (WSC) covers a vast range of topographical environs from Arctic Canada to the US border with elevations varying from sea level to over 13,000 feet (4,000 metres). An estimated 7% of the world’s renewable water supplies are found in Canada. Canada’s hydrology is incredibly diverse thanks to a wide range of bio-physical ecozones. WSC operates in partnership with all of the Canadian provinces, territories and other agencies, operating over 2,500 active hydrometric gauges across the country. The hydrologic and socioeconomic diversity found in Canada makes water resource management incredibly challenging.
