Numerous hazardous gases are present in maritime and shipbuilding. Liquefied gases, fuels, chemicals and other fossil fuels pose a risk of explosion.
In addition, there is a risk of suffocation due to oxygen depletion when nitrogen or another gas is used as the inert gas. Toxic gases such as Hydrogen sulfide also present a significant risk.
- Measurement of gas presence in tanks and cargo spaces
- The interior of ships
- Crowded spaces, eg boiler rooms, cargo spaces
- Inertization and purification
- Gas leak detection
- Air chambers
- Flue gas exhaust systems
- Flammable: Various hydrocarbons such as Liquefied natural gas and Methane
- Toxic: Hydrogen sulfide and Carbon monoxide
- Oxygen: Oxygen deficiency
