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.
Cleanrooms are found across a wide range of industries for a vast range of uses. This includes the most common ones such as laboratories, pharmaceutical and medical as well as semi-conductor applications and many other less common ones. Each of these industries need to monitor VOCs for a wide range of reasons, from the hazards they may cause to the personnel to the effects on the work they are doing, thus a fixed VOC monitor will be needed in each of these applications. This article will detail the reasons why a Fixed VOC Monitor may be required in each application as well as the hazards that come with VOCs. This article will also detail the revolutionary Fixed VOC Monitors on offer from IGD. Read on below to find out more.
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.
How long does a VOC sensor last? VOC sensors based on Photo-Ionisation technology (PID) are more complex than most other types of gas detector. PID based detectors utilise an Ultra-violet (UV) lamp to ionise the gas sample. The life of the UV lamp is one of the on-going costs of ownership for this type of detector. This article delves into the typical lamp life currently on the market and why it is capped at a certain amount. IGDs specialist knowledge in PID detection however allows us to set the standard with our revolutionary new development in VOC sensor technology. Read our article to learn more about our latest improvement.
Exposure to harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can cause a variety of acute and chronic health problems. Since VOCs are produced in especially high concentrations in heavy industry, it’s essential for the safety and wellbeing of personnel that reliable and accurate VOC monitors are installed in these environments. In this post, we take a look at what VOCs are, the risks they pose in heavy industry, and how VOC monitors can help minimize these risks.
Gas detection is almost always categorised by being either fixed or portable detection, but each of these categories can be further classified as either ATEX or safe area area detection. ATEX rated gas detectors are suitable for explosive atmospheres, known as ATEX zones. These are areas where we can expect flammable gases and/or vapours to be present. Safe area detection is suitable for all other areas that aren’t explosive atmospheres, there are many examples. Our article aims to provide guidance and answer the question why and where you would use a safe area VOC gas detector.
