The process of production and processing of polymers and plastics is carried out at high temperatures. During their processing and drying, large amounts of toxic and flammable volatile organic compounds are emitted. In this way, employees are continuously exposed to gases that affect their health in the long-term.
It is therefore necessary to monitor gases in places where an increased concentration could potentially be present, such as ovens and kilns. The selected detector must have a fast response to the test gas as well as the ability to quickly activate the alarm at high gas concentrations.
In our range for this type of application, we single out the flammable gas detector Searchpoint Optima Plus. It is characterized by an extremely fast response to over 100 different flammable gases using infrared detection technology.
