Gas Detection Solutions for Decontamination Applications

Food processing plants, barns and pens, leather processing plants, hospitals, grocery stores – in many industries and facilities, decontaminating areas with disinfectants or other compounds to eliminate bacteria or other biological items is required on a regular basis.

But this process can create toxic gasses, such as:

–             Hydrogen Peroxide

–             Ammonia

–             Chlorine

–             Chlorine Dioxide

–             Ethylene Oxide

–             Formaldehyde

–             Hydrogen Chloride

–             Ozone

Protection solutions

Decontamination workers typically wear full-body protection against gases resulted in the decontamination process.

Gases should be monitored during all phases of the decontamination process - prior to personnel re-entering the area, during decontamination and when PPE is being removed by decontamination personnel.

Fixed gas detectors are recommended to alert of gas leaks, prior to personnel entering the storage area where decontamination chemicals are stored.

Portable gas detectors from Honeywell

Honeywell offers the broadest range of fixed and portables gas detection solutions to meet all decontamination safety needs. Electrochemical, Chemcassete, and colorimetric gas detection tubes can be used to detect leaks and or background toxic levels.
