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 100ppm (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.
Ozone (O3) is classically used as an oxidant and disinfectant in a lot of industries, although has a variety of other uses elsewhere. Thus, although a unique gas, it can be found in a wide range of industries. And with Ozone being a highly toxic gas, it is important to utilise an Ozone gas monitor wherever possible. If you are unsure whether Ozone is present in your industry or you are just curious as to where Ozone is present, read the article below. We discuss all of the above and our detectably better Ozone gas monitor solutions to help in preventing Ozone poisoning.
