Gas analyzer industries are general divided into 3 major categories: analytical instruments, process instruments, and gas monitoring instruments for area quality and safety applications. This full-color, heavily illustrated book focuses on the subject of gas monitoring and provides basic, essential information for plant engineers, designers of systems, safety administrators, and technicians to assist them in understanding, selecting and implementing the proper instruments for their particular application. The book defines basic technical terminology and helps in understanding occupational health and fire safety terms. This coverage includes definitions of toxicity of gases, combustivity of gas, and application in hazardous areas. Information regarding maintenance and calibration of such instrumentation is also covered. Various sensor technologies, focusing on 5 of the most common types in use today, are covered in detail as to their operating principles, technical descriptions, and application information. Ten additional detecting technologies are covered in less depth so that the reader gains a complete picture of gas analyzing technologies. The book also includes implementation of such devices, including a practical approach to which sensor to use for different types of applications, what type of instrument to use, how to design and lay out a gas monitoring system, and calibration and maintenance techniques.About the Author:
