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.
IGD were recently approached by a cement manufacturing company to implement Hydrogen Chloride gas detectors within their facility. Time was of the essence as they needed to begin the works on site shortly. IGD were able to meet the deadline and provide them with a detectably better solution. Our solution of the 750X and the TOC-635 PLUS met their requirements and provided them with a reliable gas safety system to ensure the safety of their team. Read on below to find out more.
IGD and Coup are proud to release details for the recently won contract to upgrade a flammable gas detector system for DPO in Ostrava, Czech Republic. Our distributor and partnership with Coup meant we successfully won the international tender using our ground-breaking addressable systems. DPO provide public transport buses across the Czech Republic, all powered by CNG gas (Compressed Natural Gas). These buses are maintained and repaired across 3 different locations, thus a large supply of CNG gas detectors was needed. Read on to find out more about the application and the solution IGD and Coup was able to supply for DPO, including our world’s most poison resistant pellistor based flammable gas detector.
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.
