  • Gas detection solutions for monitoring compressed breathing air

    At first glance the physiological demands of the firefighter, the scuba diver and the hospital patient have little in common. One is trained to deal with fire and rescue, one swims underwater and one is concerned with either regaining or improving their health. Yet all three depend to some extent on a safe source of compressed breathing air. In the case of the firefighter, portable breathing sets ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Gas Detectors Protect Shale Gas Rigs From Hazardous Hydrocarbon Gas Leaks

    Oil and gas engineers responsible for hydraulic fracturing operations in the production of natural gas will find the Combustible Gas Detectors product lines available from General Monitors accurately sense potentially explosive hydrocarbon gas and alert crews in time to complete an orderly shutdown of the drilling rig. Pockets of combustible gas potentially escaping from shale drilling rig ...

  • New Crowcon gas detector reduces energy costs

    The new Crowcon Hydra addressable gas detection system provides a novel way of detecting toxic gases from vehicle exhausts, such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), oxides of Nitrogen (NO/NO2) and petrol vapour, in enclosed or underground car parks. Many car parks run ventilator fans continuously, but this is very inefficient and energy intensive. The Crowcon Hydra offers an alternative method of gas ...

  • Trace gas analysis of acids, sulfurs and nitrous oxide

    The air analysis for environmental applications is more and more required in different regions of the world. In this application note, the trace analysis of acids, sulfurs and nitrous oxide has been combined in one single compact instrument using one detection technology based on plasma emission (PlasmaDetek2). The MultiDetek2 compact GC has been configured with parallel channels to achieve the ...
