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.
MRI units are not commonly thought of when talking about gas safety, however these areas can quickly become dangerous when leaks occur. Understanding the dangers of MRI units as well as the gases used within them are vital to understanding why O2 monitors are required in these areas. This article covers all of the essential information in understanding this. Including the gases encountered in these areas to providing you details of IGD’s detectably better solution in O2 monitors.
Oxygen (O2) depletion monitors are devices capable of measuring the ambient concentration of atmospheric oxygen and signalling when Ievels have fallen. This can enable action to be taken before an evacuation is required and levels become dangerous. In addition to oxygen depletion, problems arise when oxygen levels are too high. This oxygen “enrichment” (levels above 23%) can be dangerous; increasing the chances of combustion and the intensity of fires. In summary, oxygen detectors can signal all dangerous levels of oxygen and are important instruments for a range of applications.
