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.
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.
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.
Recently IGD won a massive project to supply Robinsons Brewery with iGAS portable CO2 monitors from Senko. Unreliability and complexity of their current devices meant IGD could step in to provide a detectably better solution for Robinsons. We are proud to help a family-run, local brewery such as Robinsons enhance their safety by providing brand new portable CO2 monitors, going above and beyond to help keep their staff safe. Read on below to find out more about how we helped Robinsons to become detectably better in their gas safety.
In the fight against COVID-19 the UK Government has announced the purchase of portable carbon dioxide monitor, as CO2 is an indication of air quality in the environment. Too much CO2 indicates poor ventilation and increase in COVID-19 spreading. With this in mind our article aims to discuss the UK Governments CO2 monitoring recommendations and how the iGAS portable CO2 monitor is the ideal solution for classroom CO2 monitoring.
Commercial refrigeration are now moving to use carbon dioxide as their choice for refrigerant gas, due to its low global warming potential. However CO2 is a toxic gas under UK COSHH and US OSHA regulations. This means you need to have systems in place to monitor for any Co2 leaks. Importantly those visiting commercial refrigeration sites need to protect themselves from the toxic effects of CO2. Our article addresses this issue and why you need a portable CO2 detector and our iGAS CO2 portable monitor.
Cold room units (or walk-in freezers) are an integral part of the food and beverage processing industries. Typical refrigerant gases include carbon dioxide, ammonia, and hydrocarbons such as propane, isobutane and propylene. Older cold storage solutions still use freon gases such as R134a. Thus, a versatile range of gas detection solutions are required for cold storage applications.
