Gas Detection Solutions for Decontamination Applications

Posted on July 13th, 2020 by Brianna

Food processing plants, barns, and pens, leather processing plants, hospitals, grocery stores – in many industries and facilities, decontaminating areas with disinfectants or other compounds to eliminate bacteria or other biological items are required on a regular basis.

But this process can create toxic gasses, such as:

– Hydrogen Peroxide

– Ammonia

– Chlorine

– Chlorine Dioxide

– Ethylene Oxide

– Formaldehyde

– Hydrogen Chloride

– Ozone

Protection solutions

Decontamination workers typically wear full-body protection against gases resulted in the decontamination process.

Gases should be monitored during all phases of the decontamination process - prior to personnel re-entering the area, during decontamination and when PPE is being removed by decontamination personnel.

Fixed gas detectors are recommended to alert of gas leaks, prior to personnel entering the storage area where decontamination chemicals are stored.
