  • Why Gas Distributors Play a Crucial Role in Most Everyday Businesses?

    Inert gases power a wide range of industries, including pharmaceutical, automotive, manufacturing, and semiconductor. While argon, helium, nitrogen, and cryogenic gases have benefits and uses, there are also risks with other gases such as halogens, refrigerants, combustibles, or etching gases. Gas detectors can monitor storage areas and facilities where these gases are used to guard against gas ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Monitoring Leak Rates During LPG Bottling

    LPG usually consists of butane, propane or a mixture of these gases, though the definition is country-dependent. It is produced from natural gas processing and oil refining, where it is separated via either refrigeration or distillation before being pressurised, liquefied and stored in cylinders under pressure so that it remains in its liquid form, and can be subsequently used as a gas or liquid. ...
