Problem: Work area safety – In the petrochemicaland refinery processing plants, workplace air is monitored for many toxic compounds to assure safe working conditions. Examples of these compounds include:
- H2S, SO2, Cl2, HCl, HF, NH3, HCN
Solution: KIN-TEK’S Industrial Gas Standards Generator (Span Pac™ I series), Laboratory Gas Standards Generator (FlexStream and 491Flex), and Portable Gas Standards Generator (Span Chek™ series) are used to generate the required standards at the desired concentrations.
Span Pac™ or 491Flex™ systems are used with local area sensors. FlexStream™ or 491Flex™ instruments are used in the laboratory to test sorption tubes and passive monitoring badges used for personal monitoring. The Span Chek™ instrument is portable and can be used both in and outside of the lab.
Trace Source™ permeation tubes (both disposable and refillable) are used to create standards that are traceable to NIST. Because the standard is created on-site and used immediately, the stability problems inherent with gas cylinder standards are avoided. One Trace Source permeation tube can do hundreds of validations.
