Historically known for being used during the First World War as a chemical weapon (mustard gas), chlorine (Cl2) is widely used for its desinfectant properties as a biocide (to remove bacteria) during the water purification process. It is also used in other sectors like the chemical industry, textile and paper industries.
Chlorine effects on health
Chlorine (Cl2) is a yellow-green gas with a particularly pungend and suffocating smell. This extremely toxic gas (R23) is irritant to the skin (R38), eyes (R36) and respiratory system (R37). As it particularly reacts with water, it may form hydrochloric acid (HCl) or hypochlorous acid (HOCl) that are extremely harmful to human health and environment.
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.
