Industrial Gas Safety

What are the steps for Compressed Gas Safety?

When it comes to hazardous gas in the workplace, there are a combination of best practices and safety training that should be followed. These processes reinforce the controlled use and proper containment of potential dangerous gases like carbon dioxide, oxygen, liquid nitrogen, carbon monoxide, and others.

What is a Gas Safety System?

A gas safety system is a system designed to monitor, detect and control the levels of toxic or hazardous gas(es) in a given environment.

With CO2Meter's gas safety systems you can monitor a wide range of gas concentrations and detect potential leaks from occurring in your facility. A gas safety system is also used to detect and control the level of gas in such environments, helping to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of workers and the general public.

Does a CO2 safety alarm work for CO or other gases?

No. Carbon dioxide safety alarms use specific NDIR CO2 sensors to detect the levels of CO2 gas in the atmosphere only. Different sensors are required to measure carbon monoxide (CO) or other gases.

Can an oxygen level alarm be used for other gases?

It depends on the gas. Low oxygen levels are caused by oxygen being displaced by another gas. For example, a room with 5% CO2 levels could still contain breathable levels of oxygen, yet still be dangerous to humans. A room with 0.01% carbon monoxide would be deadly to breathe, yet not trigger an oxygen alarm. However, an oxygen level alarm would sound in a room where the oxygen was displaced by nitrogen, argon, helium, nitrous oxide or other inert gases.
