  • Looking for The Right Confined Space Gas Monitor?
    Since legislation regarding entry into confined spaces was established in 1993, safety professionals have been on a quest to find the ideal confined space gas monitor. The instrument must be easy to use, detects and identifies all potential hazards, lasts forever and requires no calibration
  • Measurement of Greenhouse Gases Using the Multi-Gas Monitor
    of the earth is strongly influenced by the composition of the earths atmosphere. Many gases in the atmosphere absorb infra-red radiation and participate in the "natural greenhouse effect ", trapping the heat from the sun and lifting the average temperature of the earth from 19 to +15C (see Table1).
  • Monitoring Gas - Protecting Life
    Industrial Scientific Corporation is a worldwide leading developer and manufacturer of gas monitoring solutions, offering a comprehensive line of portable and fixed instruments for detecting, measuring and monitoring hazardous gases to protect and preserve human life. Through technical
  • Get a Handle on Gas Detection
    costs and streamline processes. The evolution of gas detection technology is no different. From the hapless canary that warned miners of atmospheric hazards in the past, to the technologically sophisticated multi-gas monitors of today, innovations in gas monitoring practices have led to significant
  • Measurement of Oxidant and Acid Gases in Wet Gas Streams
    Increasingly stringent air quality standards have led to expanding use of wet scrubber systems to control atmospheric emissions. The main requirement of a monitoring system in this application is to detect breakthrough of gases due to scrubber failure. Unfortunately, monitoring reactive gas
  • Beta testing an in-line monitor for moisture measurement in inert gas lines
    was described in an earlier issue of Designed to measure moisture levels in ultra-high-purity (UHP) nitrogen and argon gases, the monitor uses a piezoelectric quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensor. The quartz crystal is coated with a thin film of barium metal, with which moisture reacts irreversibly
  • Combustible Gas Detection at Natural Gas Compression Stations
    A management review, by a major gas production company, of two separate fire incidents directed engineering to design a high reliability fire & gas detection system to be installed on all compressors company wide. The system would be required to monitor gas leaks and provide control outputs
  • Wastewater Treatment and Gas Detection
    There are several locations in a typical wastewater treatment system where it is necessary to monitor for hazardous gases. This article outlines various considerations in gas detection in Wastewater treatment plants.
  • Gas Detection in Transportation industry
    Alternative fueled vehicles present different safety concerns and the necessity to monitor for various hazardous gases. Light rail and mass transit systems also involve different gas detection strategies as depicted in this article.
  • The Evolution of Gas Protection
    Over the last 200 years, the act of monitoring a worker's environment for explosive and toxic gases as well as for oxygen enrichment or deficiency has seen tremendous change. Gas detection instrumentation has been a part of that evolution. As technology advanced and electronics were introduced
  • Confined Spaces and Gas Detection
    the oxygen content of the atmosphere is and whether there are explosive or toxic gases that could threaten the safety of the environment or, perhaps more importantly, your life. When properly used and maintained, gas detection monitors will protect both. Not only do you need to monitor the atmosphere
