Recently, IGD collaborated with Jigsaw Controls on a project that saw the need for a standalone gas detector transmitter in an ATEX zone 1 potentially flammable atmosphere. Jigsaw Controls client required a continuous gas monitor to detect for methane and hydrogen sulphide in habitat shelters. IGD’s solution was to provide our advanced TOCSIN 903-X5 dual gas detector transmitter in this area, allowing for safe working in an environment that would otherwise be hazardous.

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.
