When storing chemicals, flammable gases and vapors can be released. In connection with oxygen and an ignition source, there is always the danger of an explosive atmosphere.
In order to ensure the safety of people and facilities, gas warning systems measure the concentration of gases below the explosion limit and switch on the ventilation systems and warning signal transmitters for timely evacuation.
Many hazardous goods warehouses are classified as EX zones and require the use of ATEX-certified gas sensors. Crowcon’s XGard gas sensors cover a wide range of gas connections and offer a suitable solution for almost every application.
According to SES guidelines, plan for at least one gas sensor per floor area of 60 m2. The use of at least two gas sensors per room offers redundancy and greater safety in monitoring the room atmosphere.
The selection of the sensors depends on the stored substances, the room climate and the desired measuring range. The specialists at Müller-Elektronik AG will be happy to help.
