What Is a Gas Monitoring System?
A gas monitoring system works to measure the levels of gases, both in and outside the building, from various sources. Plant managers or contractors typically install these on-site. This ensures that there is minimal or no leakage of gas while construction is taking place. It also provides a way to ensure that people are kept safe.
These systems are typically used on construction sites or in any large buildings with the risk of gas leakage. Some of the gases which are measured include:
- carbon dioxide (CO 2 )
- methane (CH 4 )
- volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Gas leaks in construction sites are bad for health and can even lead to fatalities if proper safety measures aren’t taken.
Why Are Gas Monitoring Systems Important?
The gas monitoring system ensures that such risks do not occur and allows work to continue as normal.
Gas leaks in construction sites are bad for health and can even lead to fatalities without proper safety measures. This is where the gas monitoring systems come in handy to ensure that such risks do not occur and allow work to continue as normal.
How Do Gas Monitoring Systems Work?
Various industries such as manufacturing, food production, and even healthcare use gas monitoring systems. They are also widely used in public and semi-public buildings such as schools.
There are a number of different kinds of gas monitoring systems that you can use. However, each system will have its specific mechanism for monitoring the levels of gases in the environment through different detection devices. These gas detectors can then send the readings to a central computer or control center for further analysis.
Examples of Gas Monitoring System
- CO2 Gas Detection & alarms
The use of CO2 detection equipment (i.e. CO 2 gas detectors) is important in limiting the exposure of individuals to CO 2 in industrial conditions. The specific substances measured here would include a number of harmful VOCs, including formaldehyde, acetone, and benzene.
- Methane Gas Detection & alarms
The use of methane gas detection equipment (i.e., methane gas detectors) is important in limiting the exposure of individuals to methane and other harmful gases (such as CO, NO, Pb.) in industrial conditions.
- VOC Gas Detection & alarm
The use of VOC gas detection equipment (i.e., toxic organic compound gas detectors) is important in limiting the exposure of individuals to a number of harmful gases (such as formaldehyde, acetone, and benzene.) As well as the other chemicals mentioned above.
