Gas detection is provided in two formats: portable (such as the PID portable) and fixed. Understanding gas risks often requires a combination of the two, but there are applications in which only one will do. IGD’s multi-gas and PID portable is well suited for aspects of military applications which will be outlined in this article.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are very widely used in industry and represent a significant hazard to human health. In this blog post, we take a look at what VOCs are, their role in industry, and the importance of VOC detectors for maintaining industrial hygiene.
Hydrogen is a clear, odourless and colourless gas. It is the most simple and abundant element in the world and can be used as a pure gas (H2) or combined with numerous other substances to form compounds- many of which we heavily rely on today…
There are so many processes and labels for hydrogen, so it can be confusing what they refer to. Hydrogen labelled by colour refers to the hydrogen production methods used. In this blog post, we will focus on blue and green hydrogen as these are the most renowned methods of producing hydrogen. However, hearing of grey, brown, yellow, turquoise, or even pink hydrogen is not uncommon.
CO2 is both an unavoidable byproduct of fermentation and a valuable additive in a range of alcoholic beverages. In this blog post, we explore the reasons that CO2 portable detectors should always be used in breweries.
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.
