Portable and Stationary Gas Detection Systems
Portable and Stationary Gas Detection Systems
Gas leak detection
Minimise the risk of exposure, explosion, or loss of product with a gas leak detection programme that ensures that all areas, pipes, valves, and pumps are regularly checked. AquaGas can provide portable gas leak detectors, survey monitors, area gas monitors and fixed gas detection systems for a comprehensive, real-time gas detection programme in compliance with F-gas regulations.
Sterilant and disinfectant gas
Since sterilant gases are selected to destroy a wide range of biological life forms, any gas which is suitable for sterilization will present a hazard to personnel exposed to it. The NIOSH immediately dangerous to life and health values (IDLH) for the three sterilant gases above are 800 ppm, 75 ppm and 5 ppm for ethylene oxide, hydrogen peroxide and ozone respectively.
Breathing air quality
Compressed air within breathing air lines or cylinder respirators are required to be tested within the international standards set by EN 12021 and AS 1715:2009 Appendix A to ensure a supply of good breathing air quality and a safe working environment. AIRQUAL1 Breathing Air quality test kit complies with the requirements and guidelines AS 1715:2009 which sets out the selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment requirements and provides guidelines for respiratory protection (RPE).
A controlled atmosphere is an atmosphere in which oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen concentrations, as well as temperature and humidity are regulated. AquaGas’ product range includes analysers specifically designed to handle the controlled atmosphere monitoring requirements in a wide range of applications including storage, agricultural, scientific research and manufacturing industries.
AquaGas products and systems are used worldwide and suitable for an extended field of applications including:
Food and beverage: Controlled atmosphere, sterilant monitoring, refrigerant gas leak detection systems are commonplace in the food and beverage market with intensive use of A/C systems, chiller plant rooms, cold rooms, freezers in facilities such as supermarkets, production and distribution centres, food manufacturing, retail and convenience stores, marine, hotels and hospitals… In addition, aseptic food and beverage processing as well as food and beverage packaging facilities require the use of Sterilant and disinfectant through both manufacturing and conditioning processes.
Workshops and workplaces: Hazardous breathing conditions exist in routine industrial operations, such as: abrasive blasting, paint spraying, industrial cleaning, and arc welding. In these and other operations that introduce contaminants into the workplace, supplied-air respirators are frequently used for worker protection. Controlled atmosphere is compulsory for undertaking industrial metallurgic works such as brazing, annealing, nitriding, nitrocarburizing, soldering, UV curing, sintering, hardening, tempering and specialist welding.
Healthcare: Bio-Decontamination, hospitals and ambulatory surgery centres, medical device manufacturers and contract sterilization facilities.
Industrial: Manufacturing Industries such as gas production plants, pharmaceutical and sterilizer manufacturer, packaging and storage facilities go to great lengths to make their products as safe as possible, but automated equipment can and sometimes do fail and leaks have been reported. Continuous gas monitors are used as part of an overall safety program to provide a prompt alert to nearby workers in the event that there is a leak of gas.
AquaGas fixed gas detection systems provide flexible monitoring solutions with regards to how they can integrate into existing Building Management System or Plant PLC. With most detection systems having 4-20mA, digital or relay outputs, they can be used to trigger existing plant such as extractor fans or turn off process supply lines, activate localised alarms to warn personnel of danger or even text message the safety team to warn them of a problem.
As a system integration company AquaGas offers a large range of engineering services including product and systems design, project management and consulting.
