  • a1-cbiss Leak Detection Systems in Compliance with F-Gas Regulation

    Under new F-Gas proposals, a calculation of CO2 equivalent emissions will determine what type of gas leak detection is required. Sites using refrigeration now have to factor in the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of HFC’s compared to relative CO2 emissions. Sites that were before not under F-Gas regulations (had a charge of under 300kgs) are now required to have a fixed refrigerant gas leak ...

  • 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 ...

  • Gas Leak Detection Equipment: Why Do We Need It?

    The strongest motivation behind refrigerant gas leak detection is the European Union F-Gas regulation brought into effect as part of the EU’s environmental obligation under the Kyoto protocol to lower refrigerant gas emissions. The much anticipated changes of F-Gas regulation aim to strengthen the existing regulation in terms of reducing leakage of hydrofluorocarbons (HFC’s), to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Flame and gas detection in hangars

    Flammable materials (aviation fuels, cleaning solvents, and paints) present in aircraft hangars can endanger life, safety, aircraft, and the hangar structure. To improve protection, many Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) either require or strongly recommend high-performance fire detection and suppression systems to cover both the aircraft and the building. Here are a few considerations to ...
