The gas detection system is a device that continuously monitors gas. Below we will take ammonia as an example. Why do we need a gas detection system?
What is ammonia（NH3）
Whenever we mention ammonia as a gas, most people may be relatively unfamiliar with it. But in fact, we are very easily exposed to ammonia in our daily lives. Ammonia is a colorless gas, but it has a strong irritating odor. It is lighter than air. If humans are exposed to ammonia gas for a long time, it may cause harm to their health. In industrial production, ammonia is a very important chemical raw material. It is often used in large quantities for the production of soda ash, urea, ammonium nitrogen fertilizer. And nitric acid, chemical fertilizers, nitric acid, ammonium salts, soda ash, and synthetic fibers and dyes . In the production of organic synthesis industries. , Plastic, urea and other materials.
In recent years, with the rapid development of industrial economy. The amount of ammonia in the atmosphere has been increasing with the emission of various industries. And the impact of these increasing amounts of ammonia on the climate has also become greater. On the one hand, ammonia in the atmosphere will react with gaseous pollutants. Such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and other gases. And will generate secondary aerosol particles to absorb and scatter light, thereby reducing visibility. On the other hand, the ammonia emitted into the atmosphere will act as a greenhouse gas. Which will produce the atmospheric greenhouse effect.
The significance of using gas detection system to detect ammonia
However, people have not paid enough attention to the impact of various industries on the atmospheric environment. And climate when they emit ammonia. If the human body is exposed to an environment with too high ammonia concentration. It will cause certain harm to the human body. If exposed for a long time, the skin tissue of the human body and the organs . And tissues of the respiratory system will be stimulated and damaged by ammonia.
It will be adsorbed on the human skin and mucous membranes and eye conjunctiva. And at the same time it will produce irritation and cause inflammation. If the human body accidentally inhales excessive amounts of ammonia, sore throat, chest tightness, dyspnea and other poisoning states will occur, which can be serious or even life-threatening. In order to avoid accidents during manual operations in an environment . Where ammonia is produced. It is very meaningful to use a gas detection system to monitor the concentration of ammonia in the environment.
