Monitoring Benzene Is Essential To Your Safety And Success

The chemical benzene, which is a colorless liquid at room temperature, is widely used in many industrial applications, Natural processes, such as forest fires and volcanoes also result in the creation of benzene. In typical industrial applications, benzene is used to make intermediate compounds that eventually end up in plastics, nylon, resin and other synthetics. This widespread use makes a benzene detector essential in your safety procedures.

As a volatile organic compound (VOC), benzene VOC is very flammable in high concentrations, and also has a sweet odor. It is quick to evaporate into the air, creating flammable vapor which is heavier than the air itself, and will sink into low-lying areas. Traditional catalytic bead sensors are often used to detect combustible levels.

Beyond being very flammable, benzene is known to be a carcinogen that is toxic to humans even in very low levels. The permissible exposure limit put in place by OSHA is no more than five parts per million (ppm) after 15 minutes. This benzene VOC level is well under the amounts that become flammable, so detection at the ppm level is usually recommended.

GDS Corp GASMAX II gas monitors with photoionization detector (PID) sensors make ideal benzene detectors, and can also alert you to the presence of, similar VOCs. By exposing ambient air to strong ultraviolet light, PID sensors ionize passed through benzene molecules. After exposure to the UV light, any resulting flow of excess electrons indicates the presence of benzene. The GASMAX II gas monitor supports interoperable catalytic bead and PID sensors, making it possible for the unit to be configured for both high and low level detection with a simple change of the sensor. GDS Corp is proud to provide this important aspect of benzene detection.
