The important role of carbon dioxide sensor
Co2 sensor-The human body is very sensitive to the growth of carbon dioxide in the air, and every 0.5% increase in carbon dioxide content will result in a clear response from the human body. If we are in a room with too much carbon dioxide for a short time, carbon dioxide will have the following effects on our body:
When the concentration of carbon dioxide reaches 1% (1000PPM), people will feel dull, lose concentration, and palpitations. If the carbon dioxide reaches 1000 PPM in an airtight bedroom. And we sleep continuously for 8 hours, when we wake up in the morning. We will feel unrested and don't want to get up. If the CO2 content in the office air reaches 1000PPM, the work efficiency of employees will decrease.
When the carbon dioxide concentration reaches 1500-2000PPM, people will feel wheezing, headache, and dizziness. When two people sleep in a closed bedroom for one night. The concentration of carbon dioxide can easily reach 2000PPM. When the CO2 concentration in the air in the office reaches 2000PPM, employees will feel sleepy, inattentive, and mentally fatigued. After surpassing 2000PPM, the thinking ability is significantly reduced.
Above 5000PPM, the human body functions are severely confused, causing people to lose consciousness and unconsciousness.
In recent years, with the continuous emergence and development of technologies and instruments for measuring gas concentration. Tthe application fields of carbon dioxide sensors have become more and more extensive. Today, I will introduce you to which scenarios the carbon dioxide sensors are mainly used.
Greenhouse breeding monitoring
The concentration of carbon dioxide required for vegetables is generally 1000 to 1500 ppm. Therefore, the carbon dioxide deficit in the plastic greenhouse has become an important factor affecting the output of vegetables in the plastic greenhouse. The installation of carbon dioxide sensors in the plastic greenhouse can ensure timely alarm in the case of insufficient carbon dioxide concentration. So as to use gas fertilizer to ensure high-quality and high-yield vegetables, edible fungi, flowers. And traditional Chinese medicine. Some large farms, such as cattle, pigs, and chicken factories. Are in closed or semi-enclosed environments.
A large number of livestock will exhale a large amount of carbon dioxide. If ventilation measures are not taken in time, high concentrations of carbon dioxide will cause animal hypoxia, depression, fatigue, anorexia, slow growth and other problems. At the same time, the lack of air movement can easily lead to a decline in the immunity of livestock and outbreaks of diseases. Install co2 sensor in the greenhouse farm to monitor the carbon dioxide concentration. When the carbon dioxide concentration in the farm reaches a certain level. The exhaust system can be activated to replace the fresh air and provide a good breeding environment for the growth of livestock.
Industrial waste gas control
As the economy develops and the level of industrialization increases, human activities (such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation) have exacerbated the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations. There are also some industrial enterprises that use chimneys or exhaust gas in the combustion and production process. And a large amount of CO2 gas is discharged from the opening of the pipe. These have made global warming one of the biggest challenges facing mankind today.
The greenhouse effect brought about by the increase of carbon emissions is quietly affecting people's living environment. Such as the increase of pests and diseases, the rise of sea level, the abnormal climate. And the increase of desertification area. In recent years, the country has also strictly controlled the emission of harmful gases including greenhouse gases. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor the flue gas concentration when discharging industrial waste gas. A carbon dioxide sensor for detecting the carbon dioxide concentration can be installed in the chimney to strictly control the carbon dioxide concentration in the exhaust gas.
Indoor air detection
In today's society, people pay more and more attention to the living environment, and the detection of indoor air quality has become a hot topic. If the indoor population is dense, the air is not circulating. Or there is gas or coal stove burning, coupled with human breathing, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air increases, and the oxygen content decreases, which will cause different degrees of poisoning symptoms.
Indoor gaseous pollutants are carcinogenic and teratogenic to humans. And microorganisms in the air are also easy to cause various allergic diseases. Therefore, many indoor places will install air purifiers or fresh air systems to ensure air circulation and improve comfort. The use of carbon dioxide and other sensors that can detect harmful gases in the air can understand the indoor air quality in real time and provide a guarantee for creating a good living environment.
The use of co2 sensor can be seen everywhere in our daily life environment, such as kindergartens, schools, office buildings, shopping malls, supermarkets, stations, hospitals and other public places. Monitoring the concentration of carbon dioxide through a co2 sensor can improve air quality, thereby improving learning and work efficiency.
