Gas Detection Wastewater

a1-cbiss have written a guide to using gas detection equipment in the wastewater industry. The 4 page Gas Detection in Wastewater overview illustrates which type of gas detection equipment is used in the most common wastewater applications.

To ensure the safety of both personnel working at wastewater treatment plants and the environment in which treated wastewater is discharged, gas detection is an essential part of any safety program.

Our guide provides an overview of the most suitable types of gas detection product used to detect and monitor hazardous gases within the most common wastewater applications including: Pumping Stations, Primary and Secondary Treatment, Odour Control, Sludge and Disinfection.

Our gas detectors detect flammable/combustible gases, toxic gases and oxygen depletion.

A gas detector is used to protect people or wastewater plant infrastructure against levels of gas which can become dangerous or a nuisance.

Portable gas detectors tend to be worn by people whilst carrying out their duties. it is important that the gas detector monitors the gases that are present on the wastewater treatment plant. Once a hazardous gas reaches a dangerous level, hazardous to health, the alarm will provide a warning to the worker to evacuate the area and follow procedure.

Fixed gas detection is installed in areas where there is a risk of a gas leak, where workers are likely to be working or where levels of gas is likely to build-up. Fixed gas detection equipment is supplied as gas sensors and gas transmitters to provide alarms and transmit data to the Building Management Systems and Data Acquisition Software.

Gastec gas detector tubes are perfect for carrying out instant measurements within wastewater plants. The Gastec detection tube system is the most cost-effective method of gas detection because of the wide range of gases that can be measured using the universal sampling pump.

Survey monitors are common in wastewater applications because of the ‘rotten-egg’ smells associated with Hydrogen Sulphide and Ammonia which can cause a nuisance to nearby residents of wastewater treatment plants. Survey monitors are used to monitor the airbourne gases passing over the fenceline or border of treatment plants. This data is then used to lower gas emissions, reducing the nuisance smells.
