Active Environmental Solutions is the Australian Authorised Distributor and Repair and Calibration centre for all RAE Systems, portable gas detection equipment and PIDs.
Methane Gas Detector
Whilst methane is a non-toxic substance, it is highly explosive and can cause death by asphyxiation (as it displaces oxygen). These detectors are particularly important for the mining industry, as the gas is prevalent underground.
Carbon Dioxide Monitor
This is another non-toxic substance that can cause death by asphyxiation. In concentrations of 70,000 to 100,000ppm it can cause suffocation, even if there is sufficient oxygen present. Other symptoms include dizziness and headaches.
Ammonia Gas Detector
This is a toxic substance that can cause lower reproduction, growth and even death. It is important that pH and temperature are also measured when monitoring ammonia, as this will ensure accurate toxicity results.
Chlorine Gas Detector
This is a toxic substance at higher concentrations and is also known to react explosively with other chemicals. Symptoms experienced at dangerous exposure levels include blurred vision, burning sensation, coughing, nausea and vomiting.
Sulphur Dioxide Detector
This is a toxic substance that comes from industrial activity (the processing of materials that contain sulphur) and vehicle emissions. It can irritate the airways, especially in those suffering asthma and similar conditions.
Hydrogen Cyanide Detector
This is a highly toxic and flammable substance that is incredibly volatile. It can be inhaled or absorbed through contact with skin, leading to profound cardiovascular and respiratory problems. Death can even occur within minutes.
Methyl Bromide Detector
This is a toxic substance that can have a number of acute and chronic effects, as well as lead to reproductive or developmental problems and cancer. Industrial areas and those working in fumigation are most likely to be exposed.
Hydrogen Sulfide Detector
This is a highly toxic and flammable substance that can have a number of acute and chronic effects. Exposure limits of 10ppm are considered safe, whereas limits of 100ppm are considered immediately dangerous to life and health.
Benzene Gas Detector
This is a toxic substance that is formed from both natural processes and human activities. A major source is actually tobacco smoke. Symptoms of exposure can include drowsiness, dizziness, headaches, tremors and even death.
