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.
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.
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.
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.
It is vital to have adequate detection for the hazards you are encountering. Due to the range of gases it is possible to encounter, there is an equating number of portable gas detectors to be utilised in this application. This includes handheld multi gas detectors such as the POLI and MGT as well as handheld VOC monitors like the NEO. Read on to find out more about the hazards of firefighting and IGDs detectably better solutions.
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.
IGD are proud to announce that we are further extending the sensor range in the Mpower portable products. Our partnership with Mpower and the new sensor additions, now extend our portfolio of portable
detection into various industries sectors that we couldn’t before.
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.
In the sewer industry (wastewater) there can be a plethora of hazards encountered by personnel. Not only do personnel frequently enter confined spaces, but these areas are filled with decomposing waste and other hazardous materials. Gases emitted from these materials as well as the need to monitor O2 depletion levels are of the utmost importance in these environments. Therefore, we would need to employ a Sewer Gas Detector, otherwise known as a multi gas detector. Read on to find out more about the sewer gases and the industry around it, in addition to the ideal Sewer Gas Detector for your industry.
