How to choose chlorine monitoring equipment
Chlorine gas monitoring
Monitoring background levels of chlorine gas in the workplace is not easy. However JXCT are one of the only gas sensor manufacturers in the world that can make an accurate sensor to protect staff. When purified, Cl2 is released into the air, close to the ground and spread rapidly. Therefore, careful monitoring for detection and protection as part of a quality control program is essential.
JXCT flexible range of fixed and portable toxic gas detection solutions help any industry to optimise places of work, protect air quality and safeguard health and safety.
What is Chlorine Gas?
Chlorine is a powerful oxidant that is often found in healthcare, drinking water, recreation, sewage treatment plants and food and beverages.
While chlorine remains one of the most common forms of disinfection to prevent the spread of disease, it can react with flammable substances and then attack the respiratory system, eyes and skin. This creates health and safety risks. Because chlorine gas can accumulate at the bottom of poorly ventilated Spaces, it's crucial to monitor the air we breathe.
The importance of chlorine monitoring
Smart gas detectors play a vital safety role in areas where workers are constantly present. People use sensors to protect themselves from toxic gases.
With high levels of chlorine used as one of the most common forms of disinfection, gas detectors are routinely used to monitor ambient air in order to provide an early warning of the presence of toxic gases. As harmful gases, such as chlorine, are heavier than air, their presence may not always be immediately obvious to staff entering an enclosed space, posing a serious health and safety risk.
