Leading the Way in Water and Wastewater FGFD Safety
Workers encounter a wide variety of hazards when it comes to water treatment plants, sewage systems and the intricacies of piping and storage tanks. Explosive gases, volatile chemicals and hazardous disinfectants are just a few of the potential threats that our comprehensive line of gas detectors and customized solutions, can help to address.
With increased concern for clean air, many wastewater treatment plants are adding scrubber systems to help control odor emissions.
Areas of wastewater treatment plants that are subject to flooding are ideal for a sample draw system specifically designed for optimum performance within high-moisture environments. We offer solutions that meet NFPA 820 standards.
Gas from waste digesters contain high levels of methane, carbon dioxide (CO2), and hydrogen sulfide (H2S); with little to no oxygen present, workers risk asphyxiation.
ULTIMA® X5000 Gas Monitor
The ULTIMA® X5000 Gas Monitor is the future of gas detection for oxygen, toxic and combustible gases. MSA XCell® gas sensors with TruCal® technology offer calibration cycles up to 18 months (local calibration respected). The gas transmitter's advanced, multi-lingual OLED display is easy to read and the unique touch-screen interface makes it simple to navigate.View details
When entering or cleaning sewage tanks, workers can encounter flammable or toxic gases such as methane and hydrogen sulfide(H2S) or oxygen-deficiency due to piping and other components.
FL4000H Multi-spectrum IR Flame Detector
The FL4000H is an advanced multi-spectrum infrared (MSIR) flame detector that provides superior false alarm immunity with the widest field of view. The FL4000H employs a multi-spectral optical IR sensing array with a sophisticated Neural Network Technology (NNT) system to reliably discriminate between actual flames and the vast majority of false alarm sources. The FL4000H detects typical fires such as alcohol, n-heptane, gasoline, jet fuels and hydrocarbons. It can also see through dense smoke produced by diesel, rubber, plastics and lube oil fires.View details
