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.
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.
IGD recently supplied Phosgene detectors to a pharmaceutical company in the UK, helping them in mitigating their Phosgene gas hazards. Our effective Phosgene Detector provided the client with everything they needed and ended up being a detectably better for their application. Read this case study to find out more about this unique gas hazard for pharmaceutical applications.
The recent COP 26 summit in Glasgow made a large amount of promises in regard to pollution management. One of the main focuses of this summit was the mitigation of climate change, including the reduction of N2O gas emissions. Implementing a nitrous oxide monitors is proven to be the most effective way to reduce your N2O emissions, but why do I need to do this? And what is the most suitable, detectably better device for my application? Read on below for the best advice from our team of experts.
When it comes to portable gas sensors, you can either obtain a maintainable or maintenance free detector. There is a big debate in the industry discussing which type of portable gas sensor is best, with every company having having a different opinion and offering a different option. This can understandably become confusing when purchasing portable gas sensor. Thus, this article aims to discuss the pros and cons of maintainable and maintenance free portable gas sensors to help establish which is the ultimate option for portable detection. Read on to find out more about this, including the best portable gas sensor options available on the market.
Many gases used in research and industry can pose a significant risk for asphyxiation, explosion, and risk of poisoning. Gas detectors are often the first line of defence for these dangers, but selecting the right gas detector for your application can be a challenge. In this article we are going to focus on portable gas monitors.
There is a wide range of hardware for gas monitoring on the market, including detectors that can detect single or multiple gases. This article will outline the benefits of UNI gas detectors and the applications they are suited to.
The cryogenics industry involves production and handling of materials at very low temperatures, even as low as -196°C. This can be found in a wide range of industries depending on the type of work being undertaken (generally used in the medical sector such as in MRI units and laboratories). A wide range of gases can therefore be found in this industry due to the use of low-temperature liquified gases, meaning gas detection is essential to keep personnel safe from asphyxiation. IGD supply a full range of world renowned oxygen gas detectors, perfect for the cryogenics industry to help in mitigating these hazards, but first it is important to understand the hazards of the cryogenics industry.
