Industrial manufacturing facilities use a variety of hazardous gases and solvents in their production processes. Whenever these substances are transported, processed or stored, the potential risks are high for hazardous conditions. These substances must be continuously monitored to protect personnel and facilities from accidental releases or leakage.
In addition, regulations stringently restrict emissions of common solvents and reactants and require plants to continuously monitor and record compliance status from affected operations including process vents, storage tanks, wastewater emissions, and fugitive emissions from leaking components.
In many cases, the primary line of defense in protecting workers and equipment from these atmospheric hazards is a hazardous gas monitoring system. Using the correct system will not only prevent personnel injury and property damage but also improve process efficiency and productivity while working within the required safety codes.
Hazardous gas monitoring systems benefit industrial facilities in the following applications:
- LFL monitoring in ovens, dryers, and incinerators
- Combustible, toxic and oxygen monitoring in production and storage areas
- Emissions monitoring for total VOC’s or carbon bed breakthrough in pollution control equipment
- BTU monitoring of advanced combustion equipment
