Water treatment: gas detection in the sanitation sector

Home » Applications » Water treatment: gas detection in the sanitation sector

The water treatment sector regularly produces explosive and/or toxic gases? These activities must be strictly supervised in order to be able to effectively protect employees from the risks of explosion, intoxication and fire.

Today there are several solutions to guard against the danger(s) of toxic and explosive gases. As a professional in the sanitation sector, you can have gas detectors installed. These devices will measure the gas concentrations present within your facilities and warn you in the event of danger.

Which gas detectors should you use for water treatment?

Sanitation and water treatment professionals are confronted daily with the presence of explosive and toxic gases: methane, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, chlorine, ozone, etc. Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection allows you to install detection systems capable of protecting you from the risks associated with the excessive concentration of these gaseous compounds.

Sensors suited to the needs of wastewater treatment

  • Electrochemical detectors, designed to monitor the oxygen content in the air and detect the presence of toxic gases such as CO, H2S or CL2. Discover our range of detectors now DGI-TT7-E and CTX300;
  • Semiconductor detectors such as the CTX300 are used in high ambient temperatures or to detect hydrogen sulfide (H2S);
  • Catalytic detectors measuring the presence of explosive gases, including gas detectors OLCT 100 and DGTX7;
  • Infrared detectors for detecting explosive gases such as CH4 or carbon dioxide (CO2). These are models recommended in corrosive atmospheres or in the presence of a high concentration of H2S. Discover our GD10 series infrared technology detector.

For your temporary or mobile interventions in confined spaces, Teledyne also offers a wide range of portable gas detectors adapted to the requirements of the sanitation sector.
