Are You Concerned About the Most Cherished Dream in the World -LIFE ?
A Vigorous Safety Culture at the plant location will be executed by having a gas detection system with an accelerated response time.
Guiding you to select the equitable gas detection equipment for your organization
A gas detector is a device that detects the presence of gases in an area, often as part of a safety system.
A gas detector can sound an alarm to operators in the area where the leak is occurring, giving them the opportunity to leave the location safely or can control the hazardous/risky atmosphere. This type of device is important because there are many gases that can be harmful to organic life, such as humans or animals.
Area monitoring is the use of gas detectors that merge elements from both portable and fixed gas detectors into one solution within a linked network. They are not considered personal protective equipment even though they are made to be transported from location to location. Instead, they are primarily designed to help safeguard groups of workers in a given industrial perimeter.
Area monitoring is frequently used as a temporary solution to help keep workers safe in industrial facilities where mid-term deployment occurs as well as for confined space entry and far-working locations such as oil and gas platforms.
Monitoring for safety is necessary because many of the gases, such as methane, propane, etc., that are stored in cylinders and used as fuel can be a source of explosion and fire hazards.
There are various type of gas detection technology and instrumentation available that may appear to do a similar type job but on closer inspection specification, functionality and features can reveal vast differences in performance, operation, and the potential value they can offer to protect both workplace and workforce.
As the purpose of safety Is a concern, we should be aware of the important aspects of the Gas detectors before selection for application use.
How does Gas detector work?
Gas detectors work by monitoring the air around you, whilst simultaneously checking for impurities in the air. If during the monitoring, impurities or high concentrations of gasses are detected, then the gas detector will alert the user so they can act accordingly.
Identifying Toxic & Dangerous Gases For Detection?
There are a vast variety of toxic and dangerous gasses that could be identified starting with gas detection from fairly common, here are some example of effects of gases to human health.
Hydrocarbon Gases: Employees that work with oil storage tanks are at the highest risk of exposure to deadly gases like benzene, butane, and methane. Exposure can cause both short and long-term health risks, including nervous system, liver and kidney failure or death.
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S): One of the deadliest and most dangerous gases, hydrogen sulfide is created from the decay of organic matter. One whiff of hydrogen sulfide and the familiar scent of rotten eggs will come to mind. But when levels get high enough, the gas deadens the sense of smell.
Flammable Gases: Not only should workers be concerned for exposure to dangerous and toxic gases and vapours, but also the flammability risks. When a worksite has flammable gases present, a full site assessment is necessary to safeguard against fires or explosions.
Considering Safety, Health & Environment, where Gas detection systems are applicable in an industry sector?
Gas detectors can be applicable for various sectors in the industry such as Safety & Occupational Health Monitoring, Gas Emission Monitoring, Quality Control Monitoring, Personal Safety detections, Process Gas Measurement, Indoor Air Quality Monitoring, Combustion Efficiency Monitoring, Ambient Air Quality Monitoring, Toxic Gas Monitoring.
In reference to above list of applications, Gas detector can selected such as Personal, Portable, Fixed, Online, Semi-portable Gas Detectors etc.
Other factors in selection of gas detector are the technical specification such as,
Response time : A fast response can prevent accidents.
Accuracy : If a product tells you it’s accurate, your assumption is that it offers the greatest precision and that results will not be skewed in a way that can impact safety.
Resolution : This refers to the reading in the display of the monitor.
Sensitivity : Indicates to the lowest detectable reading that can be reliably measured and displayed. It is an absolute quantity of the gas that can be detected.
Understanding cross-sensitivities: In order to fully accept your gas monitor’s reading as accurate, it’s important to be aware of, and to take into account, which work site hazards may produce “off gases” or unforeseen consequences that could potentially affect the performance of your selected gas monitor. Manufacturers attempt to design sensors for a specific gas or vapor, however, quite often the target gas is not the only gas detected by the sensor as a result of cross-sensitivity (a sensor’s reaction to an interfering gas).
User-friendly devices keep safety simple: Simple, effective equipment will always result in greater compliance and more frequent use. When workers struggle with equipment because of its design and/or operation, they tend to view it more as a hindrance and less as a helpful asset that can save their lives.
