  • Dependable detection of refrigerant gases with Crowcon’s F-Gas Detector

    Fluorinated (Freon) gases, which include hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), are a family of man-made chemicals containing fluorine. These ’F-gases’ are extremely powerful greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere, contributing to global warming – most are between 1,000 and 20,000 times ...

  • Hot Off The Press: To Detect and To Protect

    Many oil and gas installations, especially oil rigs and FPSOs, are located in areas with harsh weather conditions, such as in the North Sea or Alaska. Although a different area of the world, similar tough surroundings are faced at the other end of the spectrum where there is extreme sunlight and high temperatures coupled with occasional sand storms. In all of these locations and many ...
