  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Reducing Warm Up Time of NDIR Gas Sensors

    MEMS-based electrically-efficient infrared sources from Axetris — In a number of gas detection applications, a short warm-up time of the gas sensor is critical. Especially for applications where discrete measurements need to be made, and where the gas sensor is not continuously switched on, a short warm-up time is absolutely essential. This is the case for portable gas detection devices, ...

  • Safe Work in Confined Spaces – Confined Spaces Regulations 1997

    On 5 March 2015 we discussed the Third edition of the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997, published in December 2014, and its recommendations for hypoxic environments. Hypoxic environments are those in which the oxygen level is deliberately lowered – for example to reduce the risk of fire or to minimise oxidation in fresh produce. This post looks at the risks of non-deliberate oxygen ...
