When a situation develops within a manufacturing facility, laboratory, or other area that results in a severe depletion of oxygen in the atmosphere, the result can be a toxic gas buildup that leads to a fire or explosion. Since it takes only minutes for this to occur, facilities rely on oxygen depletion systems to provide warnings to employees, giving them time to evacuate or initiate equipment repairs to fix the problem. However, as federal regulations have mandated in recent years the implementation of these systems in various facilities, many technological changes have been made, enabling these systems to perform at even higher levels. If you need to know more about the features and benefits of oxygen gas detection monitors and sensors, here are some key details to remember.
