  • Offshore safety requirements for toxic gas detection

    The American Petroleum Institute, the governing body of offshore safety, requires all toxic gas detection devices to conform to the standard ISA92.0.01. As you design and update safety plans to protect offshore personnel, consider that requirement and the standard. The Det-Tronics NTMOS hydrogen sulfide gas detector meets ISA92.0.01 and exceeds the ...

  • Detection of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) with IONICON PTR-MS

    Isocyanates are highly reactive species widely used in industry. They can cause irritation of the eyes, trigger asthma, etc. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were widely used in electrical equipment like capacitors and transformers in the last century and are still present in the environment today. PCBs are known to cause cancer and to affect the immune, reproductive, nervous and endocrine ...

  • Toxic emissions, they’re in the water

    After decades of hammering on corporations to reduce their toxic air emissions, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is now focusing on another source of nasty pollution, corporate water emissions. Although the Clean Water Act has technically been in place for well over three decades, the EPA has been lax in enforcing regulations, often due to thinly-stretched resources.Coal-fired power ...


  • EPA releases final report on air toxics near St. Josaphat School, no unsafe levels of hexavalent chromium, lead or other toxic metals detected

    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 announced today that the final report based on the school air toxics monitoring data from St. Josaphat School in Chicago, Ill., has been posted on the Agency’s website. Based on the monitoring results, EPA found no concern for risk of health problems from short-term or long-term exposures to hexavalent chromium, lead, or other toxic metals. EPA ...

  • Portable Gas Detection

    ‘Fatal Blast’ at an industrial plant or ‘Workers Overcome with Toxic Fumes’ or ‘Neighbours moved to safe place to avoid Toxic Fumes’ are headlines that are all too common. The cause of many fatal accidents is the confined space where workers are having to work.   The gas risk associated with a confined space is due to oxygen depletion (and sometimes ...

  • Detecting hazardous gases

    Engineers at MIT are developing a tiny sensor that could be used to detect minute quantities of hazardous gases, including toxic industrial chemicals and chemical warfare agents, much more quickly than current devices. The researchers have taken the common techniques of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry and shrunk them to fit in a device the size of a computer mouse. Eventually, the team, ...
