  • Chlorine gas: danger and detection

    Properly installed, reliable gas detection can help prevent chlorine-related injury or death. In the workplace where chlorine is part of the process, fixed gas detection is the first line of defense for early warning of chlorine leaks and for changes to specific processes to stem and stop the leak. Detector Electronics’ GT3000 chlorine gas detector’s electrochemical cell has a range ...

  • Detecting gas leaks can reduce costs and minimise dangers

    The potential consequences of undetected gas leaks have been well reported over recent years, including causing illness in personnel and building collapses, and harming the environment. Many chemical compounds and gases are invisible to the naked eye and some are odourless. Yet many companies work intensively with these substances before, during and after their production processes. The effective ...

  • Portable Gas Detection

    ‘Fatal Blast’ at an industrial plant or ‘Workers Overcome with Toxic Fumes’ or ‘Neighbours moved to safe place to avoid Toxic Fumes’ are headlines that are all too common. The cause of many fatal accidents is the confined space where workers are having to work.   The gas risk associated with a confined space is due to oxygen depletion (and sometimes ...

  • Gas detection solutions for monitoring compressed breathing air

    At first glance the physiological demands of the firefighter, the scuba diver and the hospital patient have little in common. One is trained to deal with fire and rescue, one swims underwater and one is concerned with either regaining or improving their health. Yet all three depend to some extent on a safe source of compressed breathing air. In the case of the firefighter, portable breathing sets ...

  • Using lasers to detect explosives and hazardous waste

    A soldier in a humvee aims a portable device at an abandoned car 50 meters away (more than 150 feet). Pressing a button, a laser in the device fires. She reads a screen, and beckons her patrol to move away quickly. In a lab, a technician is inserting a fragment of a toy into a sample case, inserting it into a machine, and pressing a button. He inserts one fragment after another—each test takes ...
