No matter the industry, many manufacturing facilities use chemicals and machinery that can produce dangerous levels of toxic gases.
Some gases are apparent in their presence by their odor, but some are odorless and colorless making them hazardous to personnel when high concentrations exist.
While these gases are used for the betterment of society, they can be a serious threat to human and environmental health.
Catalytic methane (CH4) sensors should be mounted at or near the ceiling.
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) sensors should be mounted 12” AFF.
Ammonia (NH3) sensors should be mounted at or near the ceiling.
Chlorine (Cl2) sensors should be mounted at 12” AFF.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) sensors should be mounted at breathing height.
Like many other applications that can have present a mix of commercial and industrial requirements, we offer a variety of monitor options ranging from single/dual channel units such as the AMC-1A series, to larger multi-channel units like the AMC-1400 and AMC-1800. For larger applications or facilities that require systems to integrate over BACnet our AMC-1DBx monitor can be tailored to suit.
The same challenge of identifying the most appropriate enclosures based on the application extends to the sensor/transmitters. For toxic gases such as nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulphide the AMC-210 series provides excellent value in a simple 2-wire 4-20 mA transmitter in either their standard PVC or explosion-proof variants. If more advanced features are required the highly configurable AMC-DTR is a good option.
For combustible gas our AMC-360 Series and AMC-CSA-CAT great value options for monitoring combustible gases. If there is a requirement for more complex features, including display, non-intrusive calibration, or local relays then the AMC-DTR would be our recommendation.
