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.
One of our most recent projects includes the implementation of our PID Gas Monitors for a fume extraction company known as Climavent. Their client required these PID detectors in their fume extraction systems to check the state of the carbon filters. Issues with current devices led to the widely successful implementation of IGD’s PID gas monitors, improving the safety of their team, and opening the doors for further opportunities to enhance Climavents gas safety. Read on below for more detail about how the Climavent team became detectably better in their gas safety.
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.
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.
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.
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.
