Gas detectors are usually categorised as either being fixed, portable or transportable. All of these types have a range of methods of detecting gas or vapour hazards and have their own strengths and weaknesses. Selecting the correct solution depends on the circumstance of operation, topography of the site or application and the nature of the gas hazard. For example fixed systems are impractical for sewer workers operating in confined spaces. This type of application suits a portable personal gas detector. Similarly an indoor process in a lab or production facility requires 24 hour monitoring, something a portable detector cannot provide. In some instances a combination of both fixed and portable provides the best solution so correct assessment of the hazard and best available technology to monitor is vital.
In the sewer industry (wastewater) there can be a plethora of hazards encountered by personnel. Not only do personnel frequently enter confined spaces, but these areas are filled with decomposing waste and other hazardous materials. Gases emitted from these materials as well as the need to monitor O2 depletion levels are of the utmost importance in these environments. Therefore, we would need to employ a Sewer Gas Detector, otherwise known as a multi gas detector. Read on to find out more about the sewer gases and the industry around it, in addition to the ideal Sewer Gas Detector for your industry.
Cleanrooms are found across a wide range of industries for a vast range of uses. This includes the most common ones such as laboratories, pharmaceutical and medical as well as semi-conductor applications and many other less common ones. Each of these industries need to monitor VOCs for a wide range of reasons, from the hazards they may cause to the personnel to the effects on the work they are doing, thus a fixed VOC monitor will be needed in each of these applications. This article will detail the reasons why a Fixed VOC Monitor may be required in each application as well as the hazards that come with VOCs. This article will also detail the revolutionary Fixed VOC Monitors on offer from IGD. Read on below to find out more.
Benzene gas can be found in a wide range of applications, mostly being environmentally related such as petroleum and process industries. Benzene is a liquid at room temperature but quickly turns vaporous in the atmosphere, meaning this can be highly prevalent in these industries. . This article will delve into where benzene gas is found, the dangers associated with this substance and IGDs detectably better Benzene Gas Detector solutions to help mitigate the risks of this gas.
IGD recently supplied Phosgene detectors to a pharmaceutical company in the UK, helping them in mitigating their Phosgene gas hazards. Our effective Phosgene Detector provided the client with everything they needed and ended up being a detectably better for their application. Read this case study to find out more about this unique gas hazard for pharmaceutical applications.
