Hydrogen (H2) has become a popular choice for use in the industrial sector in recent decades, but the demand for it has increased and looks set to continue. With high demand for hydrogen comes a need for more reliable and readily available hydrogen gas detection systems. In this post, we will discuss how hydrogen gas is used, the importance of hydrogen gas detection and what options are available.
Cement is the core component of concrete, and with the increased demand for more construction worldwide, there is a higher need for the most popular building material: concrete. During cement and concrete production, gases are produced that could harm humans and the wider environment; therefore, gas detection solutions are required for safety and monitoring purposes.
Many jobs involve working with or around hazardous waste daily. Therefore, protecting workers and working environments from dangerous substances and impacts thereof is paramount.
International Gas Detectors (IGD) manufacture and distribute numerous gas detection products, and provide system installations, service, and maintenance on gas detection systems, alongside training consultancy services.
Portable gas detectors play a vital role in industry and research by protecting personnel from unpredictable gas hazards as they move from place to place. In this article, we’re looking at why portable gas detectors are often an essential part of any gas detection strategy.
CO2 portable detectors are used throughout the drinks industry to provide the first line of defence against CO2 hazards. In this blog post, we’re looking at the different situations where CO2 portable detectors help keep drinks industry workers safe – and why it’s always a good idea to invest in CO2 portable detectors even when you have a fixed detection system in place.
What are VOC gases? Where are they found? How can I mitigate the Hazards of VOC’s? These are all vital to consider if working around VOC gases, as VOCs are extremely hazardous gases causing a plethora of health issues. This article answers all of these important questions, as well as suggesting detectably better gas detection equipment in order to help mitigate the presence of VOC gases. Read on to find out more.
N2O is very common in the healthcare industry, used for a wide range of different reasons and being one of the most utilised gases in this industry. It is important to understand what this gas is and where it is used, along with what it is used for to understand why and where you need a nitrous oxide gas detector. It is also vital to understand the dangers of N2O, especially if working in the healthcare industry, as there are common misconceptions to just how dangerous this gas can be. This article delves into all of these things as well as the best available nitrous oxide gas detector solution to keep personnel safe. Read on to find out more.
VOC’s are extremely common and can be from surprising sources. Each VOC comes with its own exposure hazards and reasons these need to be monitored, these can be found by accessing each materials Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). But how are these monitored? And why do we monitor these gases? These questions will be answered in this article to help provide a basic understanding of VOC gases and the dangers.
It is vital to have adequate detection for the hazards you are encountering. Due to the range of gases it is possible to encounter, there is an equating number of portable gas detectors to be utilised in this application. This includes handheld multi gas detectors such as the POLI and MGT as well as handheld VOC monitors like the NEO. Read on to find out more about the hazards of firefighting and IGDs detectably better solutions.
Handling and treating effluent presents a wide range of hazards, from confined spaces to the treatment processes. Effluent, wastewater and water treatment also ranges across a wide range of industries, expanding the encounterable hazards significantly. One of these hazards commonly encountered involves VOC gases. These compounds can present a wide range of issues; thus, a VOC gas sensor is extremely useful in this industry. Read on to find out more about the VOCs encountered when monitoring effluent, the hazards and the VOC gas sensor solution on offer.
