TOXIC GASES AND OXYGEN DISPLACING GASES

MONITORING FOR TOXIC GASES IN AREAS WHERE PEOPLE WORK AND IN THE GENERAL ENVIRONMENT

Gaseous toxic substances are especially dangerous because they are usually invisible and often odourless. It should be kept in mind that their physical behaviour is not always predictable since their temperature and pressure affect their properties dramatically as well as the effects of draughts.

In each category the required gas monitoring system can be one of two types. For minor risk applications, a simple gas monitor interfaced with a panel that sounds an alert may be adequate. Higher risk applications often require continuous (e.g., 4-20 mA) output sensors; however, before integrating the sensors into the control system consider the risk when the control system is unavailable, such as during upgrades, sensor replacements, service etc.
We offer both simple and complex systems.

Exposures to toxic gases must be calculated on the Time Weighted Average (TWA) basis, which is the medium concentration relevant to a common 8 hours working day, at which it is considered that all employee can be exposed without injuring their health.

Exposure limits to toxic gases have been established by occupational safety agencies and may vary according to local directives. They commonly refer to the short term exposure limit (STEL) defined by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). The lower is the STEL –either expressed in ppmor mg/m3 –the higher is the compound toxicity.
