Application introduction of ammonia gas detector

Whether manufactured as a chemical or disposed of as a natural by-product, ammonia is one of the most common toxic gases. In addition to severe respiratory distress, workers may experience eye and skin irritation, confusion, and other potentially life-threatening effects after prolonged exposure to ammonia. Ammonia gas is toxic and explosive, so if there is ammonia gas in the factory, it must be equipped with an ammonia gas detector.

What is Ammonia?

One of the most commonly produced industrial chemicals in the United States, ammonia is commonly used in agriculture and manufacturing as an essential component in the manufacture of a range of products. Chemically, it is a colorless gas with a strong corrosive, irritating, suffocating odor. Although it is not flammable, containers of ammonia can explode in high concentrations. Ammonia is essential to many biological processes and is also produced naturally by the decomposition of plants or animals.

Gas detector features

1) Alarm integration

In many industrial buildings and laboratories, ammonia leaks often occur in confined spaces where equipment malfunctions or malfunctions occur. Unfortunately, because these areas are difficult to monitor, many leaks go undetected until they become very dangerous. With alarm integration, the ammonia detector can be part of a network of detectors connected to the public system. The system will monitor each detector and can activate audio/visual equipment, close valves and/or notify emergency personnel remotely.

2) Pipeline and equipment leak detection
When ammonia leaks occur, it is usually due to corroded pipes and equipment. Not only does this put workers at risk, it can cost companies thousands of dollars in avoidable repairs. Because it is difficult to guess the location of future ammonia leaks, ammonia gas detectors are used to monitor this gas from a distance.

3) Custom installation
To the surprise of many, ammonia spills are among the fastest-spreading spills in industrial settings. According to experts, the size of these spills can increase by as much as 850% in just a few minutes, leaving nearby people with little time to evacuate. Plus, ammonia is lighter than air, which means it can rise and accumulate on top of buildings. Ammonia detectors can be mounted at any height on the wall and customized to fit your facility layout, enabling you to maintain a safe breathing zone at all times.
