Addressable is often seen as being complex; this is a common myth and does not match up to the simplicity of the system and plethora of benefits that addressable gas detectors can offer. This article explores these features and benefits of addressable gas detection, in particular with IGD, demonstrating how we can enhance your safety with detectably better addressable gas detectors. Read below to find out more.
Benzene is a colourless chemical with a sweet smell but is highly carcinogenic, making it extremely difficult to detect without specialist equipment. There is a variety of equipment available for detecting benzene and finding the right one is essential. Check out this article to find out more about the different detection methods.
Photoionization detectors (PID) are instruments used to identify volatile organic compounds (VOCs) accurately. The umbrella term of VOCs encompasses numerous gases and vapours, and the PID detector can detect more than 700 of them. This blog post will examine why PID detection is important for the petrochemical industry.
In this article we debunk the common question of whether an O2 Gas Detector is a viable substitute for CO2 detectors in CO2 hazards. Click to find out more.
Many surfaces around the world are made with one primary material: Asphalt. Asphalt is a composite material derived from the fractional distillation of crude oil, creating a hazard to workers in its manufacturing environment. That hazard is a carcinogenic substance called benzene, which poses many risks even at low levels of exposure. Because of its harmful effects on humans, benzene detection in asphalt production is crucial.
Chlorine Dioxide is a popular water treatment solution in various industries. It has great disinfectant and oxidising qualities making it highly effective in water treatment. However, with this gas comes its dangers as it is highly toxic, making it a potential hazard for these industries. Implementing Chlorine Dioxide gas monitors are an efficient and effective way to mitigate these hazards. Do you use ClO2 in your industry? Do you know the hazards of this gas? Read on here to find out the answers to these questions.
With hydrogen applications on the rise, hydrogen generator safety is now a more important consideration than ever before. Though the future of the hydrogen economy is uncertain, it is clear that ensuring future hydrogen boiler and hydrogen generator safety will depend on the widespread implementation of reliable gas detectors. IGD’s MK8 pellistor detector is the ideal flammable gas detector to ensure hydrogen generator safety, offering a long service life alongside unparalleled stability and poison resistance.
Large-scale refrigeration systems are an integral part of many industries, such as cold storage, petrochemical refining, and food processing. In such applications, Ammonia is the most common choice of refrigerant due to its effective physical properties and low freezing point, making it perfect for refrigeration uses. As ammonia is extremely dangerous to life and health at a concentration of 25ppm (8hrs) and 35ppm (15 minutes), it is critical for ammonia gas detectors to be used in such applications to maintain the safety of the plant and those in the vicinity.
