Methane Detection

CAS Number: 74-82-8

Properties

Methane (CH4), a colourless and odourless gas has long been known as a chief ingredient of swamp gas. It is flammable and when mixed with air can become volatile enough to explode.

Dangers

Methane in itself is harmless, but when its concentration rises, the oxygen concentration falls which can cause hypoxia. It also poses a serious explosion hazard, as it is easily ignitable; (explosive hazard range 5.0-15.0%).

Where is it found

Methane gas is formed as organic matter in the mud of marshes or other wetlands. Methane gas is one of the highest causes of greenhouse gas emissions produced by cattle. Methane often accumulates in underground passageways/conduits (including mine shafts and sewers).
