Safety managers and incident commanders face the need to identify and quantify toxic or combustible chemicals on the spot, to make urgent decisions. These professionals need to rely on gas detection monitors to help them decide quickly – to prevent an accident from becoming an incident -- on the use of personal protective equipment, evacuation and cleanup.
A free webinar on January 30 at 2 p.m. EST will explain “How to Use Sensor-Fusion to Identify Toxic Chemicals,”
Most portable detection monitors are limited in their ability to qualify, quantify, or continuously measure a particular chemical. For example, a PID sensor can detect compounds such as benzene, toluene, jet fuel, ammonia, and chlorine in a wide range of concentrations, but cannot identify which specific compound it is. An electrochemical sensor or a colorimetric tube can identify a chemical, but may not be able to measure it once its concentration exceeds the top of their measurement range. Catalytic LEL sensors can detect combustible gases within their flammability range, but cannot detect them in lower concentrations at which such compounds may not be flammable.
The New Approach: Multiple Sensing Fusion. Michael Weinstein, Global Product Marketing Manager of RAE Systems, will present ideas, methods and examples for deploying a fusion of multiple sensing technologies. The fusion of gas detection technologies provides the unique ability to identify, quantify, and continuously monitor various chemical threats across their toxic and flammable concentration range in a cost-effective and easy-to-use way.
