Application of carbon monoxide meter
What is Carbon Monoxide?
If you've been following all the news about global warming, you know that when we burn materials like coal, oil, and natural gas (collectively known as fossil fuels) in our engines or heating systems, they release energy, but they also Produces a colorless, odorless, and generally harmless gas called carbon dioxide. The problem with carbon dioxide is that it builds up in the atmosphere, slowly blanketing our planet like a blanket, gradually heating the planet and changing the climate. However, that's another story.
In order for the fuel to burn properly, you need plenty of oxygen. If there's no oxygen available, stuff won't burn at all -- one of the secrets firefighters use. Equipment such as fire extinguishers, fire blankets, and sprinklers all attempt to remove oxygen (or heat or fuel) from a fire to make it extinguish more quickly. But what happens if you only have a small amount of oxygen -- enough to burn the fuel but not enough to burn properly? Instead of burning cleanly in oxygen to produce energy, water and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), the fuel burns incompletely and releases a poisonous gas called carbon monoxide (CO - because there is not enough oxygen to make CO 2). We can use the carbon monoxide meter developed by JXCT for relevant monitoring to ensure people's safety.
Why is carbon monoxide harmful?
Carbon monoxide is harmful because it easily attaches to hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen around your body. In fact, carbon monoxide binds oxygen more than 200 times better. When you inhale carbon monoxide, it effectively absorbs hemoglobin, preventing it from delivering oxygen to your brain and the rest of your body.
Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, so you won't notice its buildup. It makes you feel sleepy, then it makes you sleepy, and then it kills you. It was often a painless death for the victim, but a completely unnecessary one.
If you have a detector in your home, your heating system starts producing carbon monoxide. When the gas reaches dangerous levels, you will hear an alarm. At this point, you can turn off the heat. Open all Windows, evacuate your home, and call in a repair crew.
It's not just a faulty home heating system that produces carbon monoxide. In workplaces where people use engines, furnaces, forgings, or any other device that uses oxygen to produce energy through combustion. It can be a major hazard.
How does carbon monoxide meter work?
As we know, there are two basic types of carbon monoxide detectors. Inexpensive, wall-mounted detector strips (sometimes called bionic detectors). Because they're supposed to mimic our body's response to carbon monoxide) and more expensive electronic alarms. Use an electrical outlet or battery. They have some things in common but work differently, so let's deal with them separately.
CO detector alarm
CO gas sensor module adopts non dispersive infrared technology, which has the characteristics of high sensitivity, high resolution, oxygen free dependence, stable signal, accurate measurement, low power consumption and long service life. CO gas sensor module has diffusion type and pump type, which can be selected according to the demand.
