Acetylene (C2H2) – also know as Ethyne – is a compound from the alkynes group. This gas is oftentimes used in the chemical industry as base material in organic compounds synthesis (such as acrylate or chloroethylene). Acetylene is also used during hydrocarbon cracking process (petroleum refining) and while welding with temperatures up to 3,000℃.
Acetylene effects on health
At ambient temperature, ethyne is a colourless and theoretically odourless (when it is a pure gas) even if this gas is not toxic, respiratory hazards may lead to suffocation. It is extremely flammable (R12) and features risks of explosion (R5) with or without air contact (R6). It basicaaly reacts with almost any oxidizer and can compose toxic and/or corrosive gas mixtures even at low concentrations.
Wide range of sensors
The XDI-F1 Gas Sensor is capable of utilizing a wide range of sensor cell types offering an unmatched number of gases that may be monitored. Standard 4~20mA signaling with CANbus address enables the sensors to be networked via the WatchGas Combi control system or customer preferred monitoring systems.
