Properties of Gases and Gas Detection Training
Gas Detection Basics
This course focuses on the principles of gas/vapour behaviour, the effects of gas build up, flammable and toxic detection levels, specific detectable gasses, and the detection techniques used. This provides a detailed understanding of gas detection.
Gas Detection Principles
This course covers the principles used in gas detection. You will learn which gas sensors are available, detector placement, how they work and what they can be used for and cannot. You will learn how to specify gas detection equipment and how to design a safety protocol for detecting different common gases.
Gas Detection Applications
Why would someone need to detect sulphur dioxide? Where in industry would I find perchloroethylene, why is ozone dangerous? All these questions and more are answered by this course, covering the commonly found gases in industry, where they occur and why, detection levels and methods, and what they are used for.
Gas Awareness Training
Easy to digest training which covers the things you need to know; What is the gas I am dealing with in my line of work? Where will I find it? How can it harm me? What can I do to protect myself?
Nitrogen makes up the majority of the air around us and is commonly used for inerting and purging applications in industry. It is also used in freezing, cryogenics and storage applications. You will learn how nitrogen is dangerous, how it displaces the oxygen in the air, and how to protect yourself.
Carbon Dioxide awareness
Carbon dioxide is the most common gas used in the world. It is found in every food factory, brewery, distillery, every bar and restaurant and now commonly in coffee shops. You will learn how carbon dioxide is dangerous, what it does to the body, and how to protect yourself.
Used commonly as a low-cost refrigerant gas, ammonia can be found in frozen food factories, breweries, ice rinks and supermarkets. It is the most reported leaking gas in industry. You will learn how ammonia is dangerous, how it is lethal, how it is explosive, and how to protect yourself.
Hydrogen Sulphide awareness
Hydrogen sulphide is a common bi-product of oil exploration and production, but also found in sewage treatment and processing. A common hazard in confined space entry into sealed underground areas you will learn just how dangerous and toxic hydrogen sulphide is, where it can be found, and how to protect yourself.
Carbon Monoxide awareness
Carbon monoxide is the silent killer. It kills more people than any other toxic gas. A bi-product of combustion, it is found in any industrial or domestic environment where there is a boiler or furnace, also any garage, tunnel, or roadway. You will learn how carbon monoxide poisons you, where it is likely to be found and how to protect yourself.
Benzene is a bi-product of the oil industry and can be found in petrol and other hydrocarbon mixtures. It is highly carcinogenic and poisonous. You will learn how benzene affects the body, where it is commonly found.
