Battery Power Storage: Protecting People and Plant

Energy storage systems are essential to bolster global efforts to pursue alternative energy sources such as solar and wind to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Storage technologies include batteries, thermal storage, hydropower, mechanical storage, and other technologies. These systems are found in several applications, including utilities and energy companies, commercial facilities, transportation, banking, hospitals, and industrial operations.

Why Gas Detection is Crucial in Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic digestion consists of a series of processes that use microorganisms to decompose organic or biodegradable waste. In this whitepaper, we will take a closer look at the hazards that arise during anaerobic digestion, including those posed by dangerous gases, and how the risks can be carefully controlled and reduced.

The Importance of Gas Detection in Wineries

Wineries face a unique set of challenges when it comes to safeguarding workers from the potential harm caused by hazardous gases. Gas exposure has the potential to occur at every stage of the wine production process, from the moment that the grapes arrive at the winery facility, through to the fermentation and bottling activities. Care must be taken at each stage to ensure that workers are not exposed to unnecessary risk.

Flaring and Compliance Challenges in the Middle East

Flaring is the deliberate burning of natural gas when it is released as a byproduct during the extraction of oil. The high volume of underground oil extraction in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region means it accounts for 40% of all global flaring, with
50 billion cubic metres of gas flared annually in the region. In this whitepaper, we will take a closer look at the practice of flaring, including why and when it is used, the gases involved, the health risks, and the regulations and initiatives that are in place to reduce the negative impact of flaring around the world.

Considerations for Implementing Fixed-Point Gas Detectors

Protecting your workforce and working environment from the dangers of toxic and flammable gases is a key consideration for organisations in the oil and gas, water treatment and chemical sectors. The usage of fixed gas detectors is common within these industries due to their ability to suit the needs of specific fixed applications, usually those connected to a control and warning system.

Food and Beverages – The Hidden Dangers From Production To Table

Manufacturing any products on an industrial scale presents industry-specific hazards and risks. The food and beverage industry is no exception. Over the 2019/20 period, 2.8% of all non-fatal workplace injuries occurred in the food and beverage manufacturing industry. The food and beverage (F&B) industry includes the production process of edible and drinkable consumables from start to finish.

Flame Detection Solutions – Meeting the Needs of Each Environment

There is a need for flame detection in a variety of industries, including the oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical and waste management sectors, in which the risk of fire is widespread. Alongside understanding why flame detection is required, it is important to understand what the process of flame detection involves and how businesses in the sector can choose the correct technology for their environment that will safeguard the property, finances and people within it.

The Importance of Gas Detection In The Construction Industry

It is evident that volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are emitted as harmful gases, pose a significant risk to employee health and safety in the construction industry. Minimising the risk of harm due to dangerous gases is a problem that demands urgent attention.

Distilleries: The Dangers of Ethanol (C2H5OH) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

Monitoring ethanol and CO2 levels with a reliable gas detection solution is crucial to maintaining the well-being of employees and customers in distilleries and breweries. Gas detection is also necessary during the transportation of carbonated drinks.
