New Guide to Gas detection published

Nov 21 2012

A new independent Guide to Gas Detection has been published by CoGDEM (The Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring) to provide industry professionals with a complete reference document on the accurate, reliable measurement of gas concentrations in both process control and occupational safety applications.

Every organisation has a duty of care to protect the health and well-being of its staff, customers and members of the public, so the accurate measurement of gas concentrations is vitally important in protecting human life as well as process plant and the environment. However, it is also important for organisations to be aware of the relevant monitoring standards and regulations, and the report’s editor Leigh Greenham says: “This book provides the latest information on UK, EU and global regulations, in addition to guidance on flammable, toxic or asphyxiant gases, workplace safety, gas detection requirements, sensor technologies, calibration and performance evaluation.

“There is an emphasis on providing practical guidance throughout the book. For example, a quick reference guide explains the key issues in gas detection system selection, so I hope that this book will be essential reading for anyone with a professional interest in gas detection.”
