Benzene is an extremely valuable precursor chemical used in various manufacturing activities–but it remains a highly hazardous compound. Very high-level exposure to benzene, even for a short period, can be fatal. Given that benzene ranks among the top 20 chemicals by production volume, and its ubiquity in modern products, benzene detection and analysis is a critical task in a host of industries. This blog post will look at five applications where benzene detection is essential.
Many surfaces around the world are made with one primary material: Asphalt. Asphalt is a composite material derived from the fractional distillation of crude oil, creating a hazard to workers in its manufacturing environment. That hazard is a carcinogenic substance called benzene, which poses many risks even at low levels of exposure. Because of its harmful effects on humans, benzene detection in asphalt production is crucial.
IGD recently provided detectably better N2O gas detectors to the NHS. Issues of high-level N2O leakage across the service led to concern among safety management, especially due to its prevalence across the NHS. They were looking for a reliable and high-quality N2O gas detector solution to prevent these leaks and found that IGD was best suited to provide this. Read below to find out more about this project.
Ozone (O3) is classically used as an oxidant and disinfectant in a lot of industries, although has a variety of other uses elsewhere. Thus, although a unique gas, it can be found in a wide range of industries. And with Ozone being a highly toxic gas, it is important to utilise an Ozone gas monitor wherever possible. If you are unsure whether Ozone is present in your industry or you are just curious as to where Ozone is present, read the article below. We discuss all of the above and our detectably better Ozone gas monitor solutions to help in preventing Ozone poisoning.
The NEO PID is the most advanced portable gas detector on the global market and is used to monitor volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The sensor can monitor over 700 VOC gas species and reliably detect down to parts per billion levels (ppb) and up to 15,000 parts per million (ppm). This blog post will explore five industry applications in which the NEO PID can be used and the benefits it provides.
Portable gas monitors play a vital role in industry. From spot checking to PPE, these devices can be an essential addition to workplaces where a fixed monitor isn’t suitable. And with Benzene a highly hazardous gas, it is vital to find a Benzene gas monitor that is suitable for your team and workplace. But we understand it can be difficult to decide with all of the options on the market. Not to worry! This blog post aims to help you in your search for a Benzene gas monitor. We will discuss the top 10 features of the NEO Benzene gas monitor to help you in your overview of all Benzene detection devices on the market. Read on below to find out more about the NEO for Benzene.

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.
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.
