Propane (C3H8) or dimethyl methane is an alkane that is mainly used as a combustion energy source in internal combustion engines or boilers. It is primarily released from natural gas purification or liquefied petroleum gases seperation. Propane is industrially used as an reactive agent voor synthesis of ethylene, benzene, toluene or xylene.
Propane effects on health
When pure, Propane (C3H8) is a colourless and odourless gas. Ethanethiol – an odorant – is added to easily detect any gas leak. Propant is harmful by inhalation and causes oxygen depletion. It can be found gaseous at ambient temperature but it also can liquefy under a pressure around 10 bars. Its combustion is clean and generates water and carbonic gas.
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.
