Crowcon - Detecting Gas Saving Lives

White Papers

Gas detection thought leadership and advice from our industry

Sample Systems – Could they be the gas detection industry’s best-kept secret?

In this whitepaper, Will Allum, Fixed Product Manager from Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd, discusses the key reasons why sample systems should be more widely used and how customers in multiple industries are using sample systems to ensure gas safety.


Evolution of the UK air pollution monitoring network

Explore the monitoring methods used by the Automatic Urban and Rural Network (AURN), and how low-cost sensors can supplement the reference networks.

Did you know natural gas is not the only option for appliance fuel?

For those in the HVACR industry, it is common knowledge that natural gas is an appliance fuel type. However, those working in the sector may be slightly less familiar with the alternative fuel types out there, such as biofuels and oils. Explore the alternative fuel choices which you may come in contact with, and explain the ways you can ensure accurate measurement with a Flue Gas Analyser (FGA).

The Impact of Volatile Organic Compounds on Air Quality - How to Tackle VOC Emissions

Explore how industries can tackle their VOC emissions including those working in oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical and heavy industries.

Volatile Organic Compounds - A Real Danger

Explore the different types of sensors that can be used and illustrate why personal monitors equipped with photoionisation
detection (PID)technology are amongst the most useful tools to use.

Sensor Selection - Getting It Right For Flammable Gases
Sensor Selection - Getting It Right For Flammable Gases

Exploring the pros and cons of both technologies and the conditions under which IR sensors should be seriously considered as an alternative to pellistors will provide a useful resource for those in the sector to use to their advantage
within their own environment.

Inform, Monitor, Act - A Quality Approach to Tackling Air Pollutants

With increasing scrutiny internationally on air quality monitoring, there has never been a more ideal time to improve your understanding of air pollutants and explore ways to protect your workforce and the communities you serve. Our white paper explores the most common air pollutants, their impact on human health, the environment, and their sources.

Safeguarding your team from Toxic Gases
Toxic Gas Whitepaper Graphic

Safeguarding your team from the dangers of toxic gases is incredibly important, especially because of the harm that toxic
gases can have on an individual’s health. This paper will explore the characteristics of toxic gas, the risk it poses and the best way to monitor it within your working environment to protect all involved.

Safeguarding your team from the dangers of Explosive Gases

Being fully aware of the environment your team is working within, and safeguarding all involved from explosive gases, has never been more important. This paper will explore what constitutes an explosive atmosphere, the gases which come into this category, and the ways in which they can be measured and risk assessed.

Minimising Gas Exposure

For those working within hazardous areas, reducing the time exposed to dangers is a crucial way to lessen potential risks. With technological advances in instrumentation in the gas detection industry offering more opportunities to reduce maintenance, and in turn lessen the amount of time operators must spend directly accessing instruments, now is a great time for those in the sector to reassess their gas detection technology portfolio.

Protecting Workforces from the Dangers of Carbon Monoxide

According to the Health and Safety Executive, and their publication of workplace exposure limits as of November 2021, the long term exposure limit for carbon monoxide gas is 20ppm (parts per million) and the short term exposure limit is 100ppm.

Demystifying Flue Gas Analyser Calibration

For plumbers, heating engineers and boiler manufacturers, staying abreast of the products and concentrations of pollutants created within any given environment is incredibly important. The crucial work undertaken is key to ensuring yourself, your colleagues, wider teams and customers, as well as the environment you work within, are protected from the potentially toxic pollutants created within HVAC systems

Confined Space Entry: Why so Dangerous?

OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, defines a confined space as having limited entry and exit points, that is large enough for workers to enter and not intended for regular occupancy. These could include drains, manholes, water mains, sewer systems, crawl spaces, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems and attics.

What’s the Next Generation of Flammable Gas Detection?

Crowcon has introduced the first molecular property
spectrometer™ (MPS™) flammable gas sensor for a fixed gas detector. Crowcon’s XGard Bright with Nevada Nanotech MPS sensor provides advanced technology that removes the need to calibrate and provides a ‘True LEL’ for reading for fifteen flammable gases but can detect all flammable gases in a multi-species environment, resulting in lower ongoing maintenance costs and reduced interaction with the unit.

What's next for Connected Safety? Cloud Data Storage

Crowcon Connect is our own cloud-based solution, is a versatile cloud data storage system with a variety of hosting options. It can sit within our own secure Microsoft AzureTM cloud architecture, integrate with your existing systems with an API or be hosted on your server on-site.

What's next for Connected Safety? Quick User Assignment

The relationship between users and their devices is incredibly important, specifically in a gas detection context where the need for reliable, timely data is imperative in order to allow for quick, proactive decision making in potentially dangerous situations.

What's next for Connected Safety? Gas Safety Insights for Multi-Site

The need for reliable gas safety insights on which to base the safety and security of your personnel, whilst streamlining processes and aiding fleet health is undeniably important for all organisation’s, whether you are running a small or large operation. In this industry, where  people’s lives are on the line and workers are functioning within challenging environments, there really is no space for a slap dash approach to gas

What's next for Connected Safety? Fleet Management for Rental Fleets

Effective management of a fleet of gas detectors can often be time-consuming and overwhelming, specifically for organisations managing rental fleets. Hours spent managing different safety programs across multiple sites, checking in, assigning and recording equipment and creating relevant reports from collected data can be tiresome when undertaken manually.

How a Compliance 4 Gas Unit can detect more than 4 Gases

Ensuring the gas sensor you employ is fully optimised and reliable in the detection and accurate measurement of flammable gas and vapours, whatever environment or workplace it is within, is of the utmost importance.
