In their various applications, many fumigant substances present a toxicity risk for the operators in case of excessive exposure. Beside careful operating procedures, accurate and sensitive gas monitors are often required to detect and alarm when hazardous concentration levels are met.
Occupational exposure risk with chemical substances used in fumigation processes exists in all their application. In agricultural and forestry practices, leak can occur in the fumigant handling system and threat the operator. After decontamination processes of goods stored in quarantine, or when unloading transportation container, workers are at risk if the fumigated enclosed volume has not been properly ventilated.
Highly sensitive and accurate gas monitors are often required to protect the work environment due to the high toxicity of some substances and because of repeated exposure situations. However, those instruments will meet the need if they also feature reliability, simplicity of use, and robust design.
The Multi-gas photoacoustic field monitor INNOVA 1412i is an excellent candidate for this type of environmental gas monitoring needs in field conditions. It is praised by our end users for its ease of operation even by non-experts. It has a long record of reliable deployments for challenging trace gas detection in field conditions. Indeed, once it has been set up for a specific monitoring task, it is merely a one-button-push instrument.
A single gas monitor can be set up and calibrated for up to 5 different gases. Here is a list of substances it’s been evaluated for:
|Compound||Formula||Detection limit (ppm)|
Highly stable specifications, calibrations not required more than twice a year.
Excellent transportability: low weight (9 kg), lift handle, and rugged enclosure.
Full standalone operation with front panel interface and display.
Remote controllable for full online monitoring and graphical trending via LumaSoft application software.
