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.

Gas Monitoring in Mines

Ensuring safety from hazardous gases and materials has never been more important than within the harshness of mining environments. With potential hazards from carbon monoxide (CO), methane (CH4) and oxygen deficiency/enrichment, mining applications are rife with danger. With this in mind those working within them need to be suitably equipped to enter these spaces and work safely.

Why Gas Detection is Crucial in Farming and Agriculture

The farming and agriculture sector plays an irreplaceable role in our lives, reliably bringing an array of crops, fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat products to our tables and businesses every day. However, due to the processes involved, this industry is also confronted by regular toxic gas risks, which have unfortunately recently led to the deaths of some well-known public figures. As well as seeking to utilise less hazardous, alternative materials within farming and agricultural processes, it is down to those in the sector to implement reliable and robust monitoring and gas detection equipment to stay abreast of the gas levels in each environment.
