Oil refineries use hydrogen (H2) to process crude oil into refined fuels such as gasoline and diesel and to remove contaminants from these fuels. Other industries that use hydrogen include chemical production, food processing, metal refining, and electronics manufacturing, where it is either delivered as compressed or liquid hydrogen, or generated on-site from water through electrolysis or from natural gas using a process called reforming. While hydrogen is not toxic, it is extremely flammable, and high concentrations of the gas in confined spaces will displace oxygen. With Industrial Scientific’s GasBadge® Pro personal single-gas detector workers can monitor exposure in areas where hydrogen may be present. In areas where workers could be exposed to additional gases, the MX6 iBrid® multi-gas detector or Radius® BZ1 Area Monitor will keep workers safe.
When it comes to lifesaving gas detectors, you can’t afford to guess. Gas detectors today offer features that provide clear information on the instrument status and sensors, tell the user how to react when an alarm goes off, and make it easy to interpret the readings. This white paper covers technology that makes gas detection easy for all users.
