Product Spotlight: Flame Ionization Detector (FID)

The Model 650 FID is used for emissions monitoring for total VOC’s or carbon bed breakthrough in pollution equipment, the following features help it to withstand the rigors of industrial applications: 

Did You Know? 3 Reasons to use the PrevEx on oxidizers

Check out our infographic explaining the top 3 reasons to use the PrevEx, our flammability analyzer for lower flammable limit monitoring (LFL/LEL), on oxidizers.

Thermal oxidizers are used to destroy the VOC's present in many industrial ventilation, process exhaust and waste air streams. As their use increases, so does a unique opportunity.

Using a FID in Wastewater Collection Pits

A specialty chemical manufacturer of pure resins collects & sends the discharge from the manufacturing process to a wastewater collection pit.

They continuously monitored the atmosphere of the collection pit with LFL infrared sensors for parts per million levels, confirming safe release of the wastewater. However, they found the IR sensor's scale was too high to detect the low ppm levels they needed.

Using the PrevEx for Pharmaceutical Batch Ovens

A developer and producer of generic drugs uses a pharmaceutical process that involves coating products with a mixture of solvents and then heating them in batch ovens. The solvents evaporate off, are collected and fed into a main duct, that feeds into the thermal oxidizer for destruction.

Safety E-Book: Application Concerns - Choosing the Right Analyzer

Summing up our Safety E-Book: Choosing the Right Analyzer

When looking for a gas monitoring system you must address some key concerns:

Safety E-Book: Gas Vapor in Air Mixtures - LFL Monitoring Range

This month's Safety E-Book topic highlight is: LFL Monitoring Range. 

For each flammable substance there is a level of concentration in air, usually expressed as a percent by volume, known as its Lower Flammable Limit (LFL) or Lower Explosive Limit (LEL).

Safety E-Book: Flammable Hazards - Eliminating Hazards

This month's Safety E-Book topic highlight is: Eliminating Hazards. 

Three elements must be present for a flammable hazard to exist: fuel, oxygen, and a source of ignition. If any one of these elements is lacking, it is not possible to have a fire, which is why safety experts study ways to eliminate one of them.

Safety E-Book: Basic Principle of Safety - Human Error

This month's Safety E-Book topic highlight is: Human Error. 

Hazard indicators can significantly reduce accidents, but some people disobey them, committing a human error in judgment. Their actions can result in death, injury, and property damage.
