Several gases have toxic properties. The majority of toxic gases can be recognized by their odors, but a high concentration of gas in the air can be difficult to monitor without toxic gas detectors. Sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2 or diesel) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) can cause the explosion of some installations and the asphyxiation of people too close. Some respiratory damages are also possible in case of prolonged contact with these gases. However, damages are easy to avoid by providing you with a toxic gas detector from Detekta Solutions.
Parkings, Mechanical Workshops, Landing Stages, Warehouses
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas emitted from fuel-burning vehicles and heating systems. Found in covered parking lots and confined spaces, carbon monoxide is invisible, odorless, and does not irritate the eye nor the respiratory tract. However, CO can cause poisoning and even death. Detectors are thus essential in any parking where CO can be found.
Mechanical workshops are the site of many activities that can threaten workers’ health and safety. Toxic fumes from various chemicals such as paints, solvents, or hydraulic equipment must be closely monitored in order to avoid explosions or poisoning. Detekta Solutions has a wide range of gas detectors for the toxic fumes emitted from mechanical equipment and chemicals.
Although landing stages are often open areas, a large number of vehicles grouped in one single location can cause high concentrations of toxic fumes in the air. Buses, trucks, and boats can release enough gas to damage health. In order to ensure a proper air quality control, several detectors are cut out for cold weathers, water, and shocks, which ensures accurate monitoring of inherent dangers.
Having a ventilation system in a warehouse is not sufficient to ensure an optimal level of safety. Whatever the products or equipment in storage, a gas detector is required to monitor larger gas leaks or any accumulations of toxic products in the air. Neglecting an accumulation of CO2, NH3, propane (C3H8) or any other hazardous products, and hazards associated with propane and battery-propelled lift trucks in warehouses can cause explosions, poisoning, and serious injuries to workers. Detekta Solution offers you a complete range of products for your safety and peace of mind for both industrial or commercial warehouses.
Boiler rooms are good examples of hazardous spaces where gases emitted from the combustion of natural gas or oil can be found. These spaces are often places where the temperature reaches more than 35 degrees Celsius. in order to ensure a good safety level, it’s important to have toxic or flammable gas detectors suitable for boiler rooms. In the case where the exhaust system connected to a boiler room fails, a gas detector will promptly notify nearby people thus avoiding the possibility of explosion or poisoning.
Mechanical rooms are very often confined spaces with little air circulation. Machinery may emit CO, oil mist, propane, or other chemical vapors. In the case of a heating system, gas leakage can spread throughout the building and asphyxiate people. With its gas detectors, Detekta Solutions ensures good air quality both in mechanical rooms or for any external systems connected to it.
Laboratories are among the areas requiring a tremendous care. Air quality is paramount, not only to ensure the quality of products or the accuracy of sampling data, but also to control and ensure a low level of vapors and gases. Since vapors and gases can be in contact with man or any other chemicals, Detekta Solutions’s gas detectors provide you with peace of mind and reliable monitoring. In case of a high concentration of hydrogen (H), acetylene (C2H2) or propane (CH3CH2CH3) in the air, several gas detectors will warn you of any inherent dangers.
Validating sterilization units for factors such as gas concentration, temperature, and relative humidity are very important factors in sterilization rooms. Contaminants or toxic products in the air can be in contact with sterile material and contaminate or corrode them. In addition, ethylene oxide (C2H4O) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) should be monitored continuously because, in high concentrations, they can cause fatal lesions in less than 60 minutes.
In order to identify potential hazards associated with food processing, it is important to control ambient gases that can potentially come into contact with food. Gas detectors minimize the risk of cross-contaminations with outside air or gas leaking from any refrigeration systems. According to Health Canada, the gases used in the conditioning of the atmosphere can affect the quality and shelf life of your products. Detekta Solutions offers you a wide range of products that do not only protect workers, but also those who consume processed products.
The decomposition of organic matters in landfills produces a significant amount of biogas. Methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are the two main biogas resulting from the decomposition process (combined, they represent about 95% of the biogas emitted from decomposition). Colorless, odorless and extremely flammable, CH4 and CO2 must be closely monitored in order to avoid explosions, contamination and pollution. Neglecting these toxic gases can threaten health, the environment, and populations. Gas detectors are thus more than important since they ensure a safe and efficient management of wastes and inherent vapors.
Chemicals used in paint can be hazardous for staff and environment. Even though in recent years, lead (Pb) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are increasingly monitored, several other chemicals such as acrylic, acetone, and ester are still present in paint and can pose serious health risks to workers. Excessive concentrations of chemicals in the air can cause dizziness, fainting, vomiting and even death. Several types of detectors are available in order to control toxic vapors and gases, regardless of the level of air circulation. Gas detectors provide you with a safe working environment and also avoids collateral damage related to an extended exposition to VOCs.
Commercial Kitchens or Restaurants
Natural gas or propane cookers provide an incomparable performance level. However, gas leaks can contaminate food, poison customers and staff, as well as cause explosions. Even when in contact with heats, Detekta Solutions’s carbon monoxide (CO), propane (C3H8), and natural gas (CH4) detectors are simple and efficient. Avoid neglecting the health of workers and food quality by providing one of our gas detectors suitable for commercial kitchens and restaurants.
For both indoor and outdoor pools, a chlorine detector is required to ensure the health and safety of bathers and employees. An over-accumulation of chlorine (Cl2) in the air combined with failure of the ventilation system of an indoor public pool can cause irritation of the mucous membranes, chest tightness and even death. Even if the chlorine is non-flammable and non-explosive, chlorine is an important danger to be monitored not only for swimmers, but also for personnel directly in contact with this disinfectant.
