Understanding Combustible Gases

In industrial applications, one of the greatest threats to employees’ safety is combustion. Both manufacturing and chemical processes use gases that are prone to explode or catch fire under the right conditions. Some of these combustible gases are more popular than others, but it’s important for all workers to understand the chemical properties of what is being used. Take a look at our Combustible Gases List to learn everything you need to know about these dangerous materials.

Examining Top 5 Toxic Gases

When certain chemicals are inhaled, their chemical properties can create havoc within the human body. From irritation to suffocation, it’s important to know the health effects of toxic gases used in your facility. Discover the top 5 Types of Toxic Gases with our in-depth analysis of their chemical properties and health repercussions. 

Defining Hazardous Locations in Detail

To help enhance the safety of all workers in a particular area, certain associations have come together to create a tool to accurately define a location’s hazard level. Most commonly known as Hazardous Location Classification, it’s important to know what dangers may be present in each class, division, or zone so you can adequately prepare your team.

Recognizing the Importance of LEL Detectors

We take pride in our range of gas detection equipment including sensors, alarm systems, and onsite detection systems. If you regularly work with materials that contain combustible or toxic gases, having a detector that measures the concentration levels in your atmosphere is crucial to making sure leaks are repaired quickly and without injury. With innovative wireless technology and customized calibration, we’re here to remind you of the Importance of LEL Gas Detection in your specific environment.
