Shipping and natural gas among industries which rely on gas detection tubes for safety

Feb 19 2019 Read 1012 Times

As Uniphos Envirotronic Pvt. Ltd. celebrates its 26th year of operation in 2019, the evolution of the company and its products is impressive. The first Uniphos tube developed in 1993 was for phosphine to address an emerging need at a metal phosphide laboratory at United Phosphorus Limited (UPL). Encouraged by the initial success, research and development continued until phosphine detector tubes as well as pistons and barrel pumps were perfected in 1994.
Today, the application of these detector tubes is not just limited to phosphine. Uniphos has more than 300 different detector tubes for measurement of hundreds of gases and vapours for ambient air, compressed air and ions in water, along with a variety of air sampling pumps.
With this vast array of products, Uniphos supports many industries including shipping and natural gas. Shipping containers may contain a number of toxic gases and vapours. One such vapour is benzene which evolves from leather goods such as belts, wallets and purses. Rather than simply opening the large sealed doors, a tube or a probe is inserted through the container door to pull a sample of the atmosphere in the container. In the natural gas sector, they use detector tubes as a simple and economical means to check gas wells and natural gas terminals for the concentrations of water vapour, hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide and ethyl mercaptan.
Being the only manufacturer to offer two lines of gas detector tubes (Uniphos and KwikDraw), Uniphos is looking forward to the next era of gas detection innovation to continue supporting these industries. Please visit our website to learn more.
