When an organization’s job is to respond to fires, explosions or any other disaster that may come along, ensuring their first responders are protected is paramount. That’s why Blackline Safety Corp. is unveiling an equipment trade-in program designed to make it easier than ever for fire departments and emergency response teams to acquire cutting-edge gas detection equipment and the monitoring software that comes with it to keep crews safe.
If you work in an industry like mining, manufacturing, refining, or petroleum extraction, where gas detectors are needed to detect combustible, flammable and toxic gases and oxygen depletion, it’s vital that these instruments’ sensors remain clean.
Wastewater plants are full of confined spaces, like recirculation pits, clarifier tanks, and wet wells. These spaces alone can be hazardous, and the danger only increases when you consider the gases that can permeate the air at wastewater treatment facilities.
When monitoring your work environment for toxic gases, you need to make sure your monitor is properly calibrated for your target gas, such as chlorine, carbon monoxide, or your readings may be inaccurate.
Vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) is a popular and efficient method of bio-decontamination. It’s used in a variety of commercial, institutional and industrial settings to decontaminate or sterilize sealed enclosures such as filling machines, barrier isolators, glove boxes and workbenches.
Area monitoring is frequently used as a temporary solution to help keep workers safe in industrial facilities where mid-term deployment occurs as well as for confined space entry and far-working locations such as oil and gas platforms.
Breathing hazards such as hazardous gasses can be a danger to all types of workers, including those in the oil and gas, water treatment plants, metals refining and processing, and chemical plants. To keep safe working in these environments, workers need to carry a range of personal protective equipment.
You’ve decided your facility would benefit from the installation and implementation of a gas detection system. This is a big step in protecting your workers and your facility. Now comes the fun part, selecting the right technology to meet the needs of your application.
One thing all portable gas detectors have in common is alarm tones. One alarm tone is used to indicate gas hazards, albeit with varied frequency or volume for Low/High/TWA/STEL warnings. An alarm for carbon monoxide sounds the same as an alarm for Lower Explosive Limit, oxygen, and hydrogen sulfide.
