Reactive or “sticky” gases pose additional issues when it comes to gas detection. As their name suggests, they react with many of the surfaces with which they make contact. This becomes a particular problem if the atmosphere to be tested is being “sampled” rather than tested directly.
There are many questions about the right approach to monitoring hazardous gases in the wastewater industry. One way I suggest, is to break it down into three main areas for consideration:
The nature of gas hazards posed by some working environments can be complex and complete protection is not available from a single solution. This week, our guest blogger, Richard, takes a look at VOCs: how they pose a hazard and what we can do to protect against them.
