Gas Monitoring Systems for Vehicle Emissions
Demand-based ventilation provides a safe clean environment and keeps energy costs in check. The most important source of indoor air pollution is the internal combustion engine. Among several toxic components, carbon monoxide is the most hazardous. Carbon monoxide is produced by gasoline and propane powered vehicles but to only a small degree in diesel engines. To measure and control the various toxins in diesel exhaust the most reliable indicator is nitrogen dioxide.
Gas Controllers /Gas monitoring – Indoor garage
For car garages use carbon monoxide detectors to control exhaust ventilation. Where diesel powered automobiles are also present use a combined unit with both carbon monoxide sensor and nitrogen dioxide sensor built in. These catalytic bead type sensors feature a poison filter which reduces the risk of damage and prolongs life expectancy to up to 10 years.
Gas monitoring – warehousing
Reduce energy costs by measuring emissions from gasoline and propane powered for lift trucks and only exhaust heated and air conditioned air when needed. Control vehicle emissions in maintenance garages for trucks, buses, lift trucks, and heavy equipment. Small motors such as lawn movers, chain saws, outboards, all terrain vehicles can have no catalytic converters, so toxic emissions can be greater than from automobiles.

Refrigerant Gas Leak Detection
Sensors are installed in compressor rooms within close proximity to compressors, close to the floor. Use series 60XX sensors and Opera 6000 control unit that is installed outside of the mechanical room at eye level to signal a potential risk to someone entering the room. Controller features a built in audible alarm and strobe.
When using nitrogen in cryogenic applications the gas displaces air and oxygen (normally 21.5 percent) resulting in asphyxiation risk.
