Carbon Monoxide (CO)
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless flammable gas slightly less dense than air. It is toxic to animals that use hemoglobin as an oxygen carrier (both invertebrate and vertebrate) when encountered in concentrations above about 35 ppm. However, it is also produced in normal animal metabolism in low quantities and is thought to have some normal biological functions. In the atmosphere, it is spatially variable and short-lived, having a role in forming ground-level ozone.
Carbon monoxide effects on health
The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. CO symptoms are often described as “flu-like.” If you breathe in a lot of CO it can make you pass out or kill you. People who are sleeping drunk can die from CO poisoning before they have symptoms.
Carbon monoxide is produced when fuels such as gas, oil, coal, and wood do not burn fully. Burning charcoal, running cars, and the smoke from cigarettes also produce carbon monoxide gas. Gas, oil, coal, and wood are sources of fuel used in many household appliances, including:
- gas fires
- central heating systems
- water heaters
- open fires
Low costs of Ownership
The UNI Disposable is a disposable and low cost of ownership, version of UNI Sustainable single gas detector. It detects H2S (Hydrogen Sulphide), CO (Carbon Monoxide), and O2 (Oxygen) in your selection of models for operation life of 12-months and 36-months.
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.
