Workplace toxic gas detectors – Major revision of standards
Normative References The following documents, in whole or in part are normatively referenced in this document and are indispesible for its application. Over the last 4 years in GB, there were between deaths p.
Typically, instantaneous alarms are used to warn against short term acute exposure to a dangerous concentration of toxic gas i. The alarm set points of the detector should be set specifically for its application. Your basket is empty.
BS EN: Workplace Atmospheres : International Gas Detectors
The measuring range is defined by the manufacturer. If detectors for gases other than those listed in the table in EN are required to be tested, then values for the standard test gas concentration and lower limit of measurement, can be agreed between the manufacturer and the test laboratory, bearing in mind any limit values, should they exist.

Sep 27 Read I have annotated in Table 2 below some brief information regarding the detectable gases and usage of the 11 detector types.
The values chosen are equal to or close to the limit values used in European countries. Detectors for general gas detection 455444- subject to performance requirements for the various tests comparable with those for flammable gas detectors c.
How Does Sewage Affect the Environment? The number of toxic gases eh in the workplace is very large, and this is matched by toxic gas detectors employing a variety of sensor operating principles. Find Similar Items This product falls into the following categories. General requirements and test methods. The development of this international standard is ongoing.
However, two basic measurement tasks can be identified and they form the framework of the new standards: This European Standard gives guidance on the selection, installation, use and maintenance of electrical apparatus used for the direct detection and direct concentration measurement of toxic gases and vapours in a workplace atmospheres.
Toxic gas detectors for exposure measurements have more stringent requirements: Occupational Safety and Health: This website is best viewed with browser version of up to Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox 3.
The requirements for exposure screening measurements are usually less stringent than those for exposure measurements used for comparison with limit values and periodic measurements because the latter two types have regulatory implications.
Nov 06 Read Electrical apparatus used for the direct detection and direct concentration measurement of toxic gases and vapours. These are currently the main workhorses for general gas detection in the workplace, especially for use in confined spaces together with flammable gas and oxygen sensors in multigas instruments. Dec 04 Read Electrical apparatus used for the direct detection and direct concentration measurement of toxic gases and vapours Performance requirements for apparatus used for general gas detection BS EN Moreover, a detector used for general gas detection could be certified under the tougher requirements of ENfor example, to possibly confer on the manufacturer a market advantage for accuracy.
Different countries may use different values for describing safe levels of potentially toxic substances, see for example, GESTIS see Bibliography which is a collection of publicly available databases on hazardous substances.
Dec 13 Read On the road to a green future — high technolo Earlier alarm activation can be achieved through the use of lower alarm set points. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world. For occupational exposure measurement, the performance requirements are focused on uncertainty of measurement of gas concentrations in the region of Occupational Exposure Limit Values OELV.
