Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2)
Chlorine dioxide (CLO2) is exclusively an anthropogenic gas. This means that it cannot be found naturally. This synthesis produce widely used in bleaching processes for paper pulp, flour, textile and leather cleaning. It can also be applied for its biocide and disinfecting properties for many other applications like wastewater treatment and is used in the pharmaceutical and food industries.
Chlorine dioxide effects on health
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) taint varies from red-orange to green-orange. Its fragrance is irritating and smells like chlorine compounds. Non-explosive in the dark, it becomes unstable with light and can produce explosive mixture under the sunlight or with fast heating (R5). Very toxic by inhalation, it can cause severe burnings (R34). Soluble into water, it can form hydrochloric acid, wich is very corrosive and harmful for aquatic organisms (R50).
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.
