How To Select A Hydrogen Gas Detection System
If you’re working with hydrogen gas, you’re going to need a tailored, specific gas detection solution. HMA Instrumentation are experts in manufacturing a range of gas detection systems, including innovative hydrogen gas detection solutions. We’ve developed this short guide to help you select a hydrogen gas detection system to suit your industry and organisational needs.
What Makes Hydrogen Gas Different From Other Gases?
Hydrogen is the lightest and smallest element and is a gas under atmospheric conditions. There are a few key things that set hydrogen gas apart from other gases.
It’s odourless. In their natural forms, natural gas, propane and hydrogen gas are all odourless. However, sulfuric odourants are added to natural gas and propane so people can detect them when there’s a leak. On the other hand, hydrogen remains odourless because there are no known odourants light enough to travel with hydrogen at the same dispersion rate. Additionally, existing odourants also contaminate fuel cells, which are an essential application for hydrogen.
It’s prone to leakage. Hydrogen is a small molecule with low viscosity, making it prone to leaks. In small, confined spaces, undetected hydrogen leaks can reach flammable concentrations or asphyxiant concentrations. With hydrogen gas undetectable to human senses, a premium hydrogen gas detection system needs to be established.
Hydrogen is hard to store. As it’s prone to leaking, hydrogen is also difficult to store. It has a high energy content by weight but not by volume, meaning it is often compressed and stored at high pressure.
Tips For Picking The Right Hydrogen Gas Detection System
HMA Instrumentation has a few tips for choosing a high-quality hydrogen gas detection solution for your industry or organisation.
Conduct a thorough risk assessment. To implement an excellent hydrogen gas detection solution, you first need to carry out a comprehensive risk assessment of your workplace and hydrogen gas storage site.
Consider your environment. The environment of your workplace will help determine which hydrogen gas detection unit you use. Detection methods include gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, catalytic bead and thermal conductivity. Make sure to look into which method is best for your unique situation.
Look into the functional parameters. Before choosing a hydrogen gas detection system, carefully consider the performance, durability and reliability of the equipment. If you’re struggling to decide which solution is right for you, make sure you reach out and ask the HMA Instrumentation experts. We’ve helped companies across a range of industries find suitable hydrogen gas detection solutions, so we can find something that best fits your needs.
