  • Confined space entry – is your gas detector right for the job?

    Working in confined spaces is difficult at the best of times. Operators often have to wear full PPE (personal protective equipment), are usually harnessed and may be carrying tools and equipment to complete the task in hand (e.g. welding). The last thing a worker in this environment needs to worry about is his or her gas detector. It should be designed specifically for confined space entry (CSE) ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
