  • 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 ...

  • New infrared flammable & CO2 gas sensor detects hazards where conventional sensors fail

    The Xgard IR from Crowcon is a new, low cost infrared (IR) flammable gas and carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor designed for use in fixed point detection systems where conventional detectors can prove unreliable or suffer from interference and damage. Conventional flammable gas detectors based on catalytic pellistors are susceptible to poisoning in some industrial atmospheres. This can make their ...

  • Gas hazards in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries

    Although flammable and toxic gas hazards are generally well understood by operators, technicians and safety personnel in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, continuous training and refreshment of knowledge is essential to avoid potential incidents caused by complacency. New personnel are often assigned work activities in potentially hazardous areas with only very limited training about gas ...

  • Carbon dioxide detection in industrial plants: Measuring range 0 – 5,00 % or 0 – 2,00 %

    For martians – provided they are existing – carbon dioxide atmosphere might be their natural habitat. We earthlings can only tolerate low concentrations of this gas. It is true that we are using the special properties of CO2 for many purposes, but in concentrations above 5000 ppm it can be hazardous to our health. Therefore it must be monitored. In areas that are rarely accessed such ...
