When high quantities of chemical substances or gases are in held storage, there’s an increased risk of explosion or vapour leak which could harm people nearby.
Gas leak detection equipment can be used to continuously monitor for leaks and alert the danger.
Unventilated gas cylinder storage rooms, chemical storage tanks, storage silos or open vats are home to areas where workers may enter to collect items or for inspection reasons.
To ensure that these areas are safe for lone workers to enter, safe entry systems are installed to indicate whether it’s safe for people to enter a room.
Gas sensors are positioned inside the room, whilst the beacons and control panel are installed outside so people know it’s safe to enter.
Bulk Powder Storage
Powders, grains and granules stored in bulk storage can be flammable under certain conditions.
Dust monitoring equipment is required to regulate dust levels by controlling the movement of bulk materials.
Accessing Storage Towers
In between loads, bulk storage containers need to be cleaned out. Poisonous substances such as rotting materials may cause poor air quality resulting in insufficient breathable air.
Gas detectors should be worn for continuous monitoring of personal space to give warning to the threat of any hazardous and flammable gases.
If breathing air is poor, breathing apparatus must be considered to provide a continuous flow of safe, breathable air.
Prevent Overfilling in Silo Storage
Limit-level monitors detect backed up material in silos, pipelines, and ducts which causes blockages. When detected early enough, action can be taken before the production line is damaged.
Hydrogen Detectors for Battery Storage
Commercial and industrial premises have battery backup facilities to provide short term backup power, in case of power failure to the building. Such applications can range from emergency care units, data centres, universities, and process/manufacturing applications.
Hydrogen is explosive at 4% by volume in air and if a leak goes undetected then this can easily create a potentially explosive atmosphere.
Hydrogen gas detectors provide 24/7 continuous detection plus remote alarms via a site BMS to alert to the rise in hydrogen levels.
Case Study - CO2 In Breweries
Learn about the hidden dangers of carbon dioxide (CO2) in breweries and the essential measures to ensure safety. Uncontrolled levels of CO2 can lead to severe health hazards, even suffocation, making proper monitoring absolutely crucial. Discover how the accumulation of CO2 during fermentation and storage processes can create hazardous pockets. Implementing a comprehensive gas detection system, including fixed CO2 sensors and personal detectors, is crucial to protect brewery personnel.
Case Study - a1-cbiss Engineer a Brewery Carbon Dioxide Monitoring System
Discover how a1-cbiss helped two major breweries in the UK ensure health and safety compliance with a tailored Carbon Dioxide monitoring system. With elevated CO₂ levels during fermentation, a1-cbiss designed a solution using advanced gas detection technology. The system provides visual warnings, integrates with ventilation systems, and offers real-time data acquisition and reporting.
