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.
Benzene gas can be found in a wide range of applications, mostly being environmentally related such as petroleum and process industries. Benzene is a liquid at room temperature but quickly turns vaporous in the atmosphere, meaning this can be highly prevalent in these industries. . This article will delve into where benzene gas is found, the dangers associated with this substance and IGDs detectably better Benzene Gas Detector solutions to help mitigate the risks of this gas.
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.
Our latest blog post delves into the features of the Senko portable H2 gas monitor. Designed for a wide variety of industries, the SGT-P H2 Gas monitor is a go to cost effective solution for personal detection of hydrogen. The model is also becoming more popular with the emerging hydrogen market. Companies are now moving to hydrogen as a green energy source and for applications such as batteries. With increased usage of hydrogen both in research and as a fuel source, its important employees have detectably better protection in place. Read further to learn more about the key features of the SGT-P H2 gas monitor and why it is the go-to monitor for personal protection for hydrogen leak detection.
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.
Boiler equipment is usually stored in its own room, known as a boiler house, which is typically unventilated. Boiler houses are often visited infrequently, meaning that if there are toxic or flammable gases leaking, they are more likely to go undetected. Read our article to learn why you need an automatic gas detection system and our gas detection solutions.
