Ammonia – NH3

This page presents information about ammonia (NH3) – also known as hydrogen nitride: characteristics, effects on health, detection tools & systems – ammonia detector – and proper respiratory protective equipment (gas mask or powered air purifying respirator with K gas filter).

ammonia detector and NH3 respirator

Ammonia properties

Ammonia (NH3) – or hydrogen nitride – is industrially synthetized from nitrogen (N) and hydrogen (H2) using a catalyst (Haber-Bosch process). This substance is a key element for producing fertilizers and is used in the cooling industry. When dissolved into water, ammonia is used to produce household products. it is also exploited in the textile industry and for many other applications.

Ammonia effects on health

Above all ammonia is toxic (even at low concentrations) and very irritating to the eyes and breathing tracts. It can be easily detectable through smell with its pungent and asphyxiating smell. This gas is also flammable and explosive between 15 and 28% volume. If it enters in contact with other substances like halogens, mercury or acetaldehyde, explosive reactions can occur.

Ammonia detector (NH3)

Even if NH3 is detectable through smell, only an ammonia detector can accurately measure concentrations of this gas. Two ammonia detection methods are available: either in toxicity with a ppm measurement, or in explosive potential with LEL percentage measurement (combustible gas detector).

Additional information

The SafeAir chemical detection badge is easy to use and does not require any special skills. It can detect the presence of gas even at very low concentrations.
Thanks to its ease of use, the SafeAir chemical detection badge is the easiest portable gas detection solution. Just take it out of its packaging and hang it on a piece of clothing close to the respiratory tract.
For better accuracy in the analysis of the average exposure value, all you need to do is use the associated color comparator. Available for 5 models, it allows you to compare the color of the SafeAir badge with those present on the comparator. In a few seconds it is thus possible to know the precise rate of exposure to the gas.
SafeAir chemical detection badges can be stored in the refrigerator at 4 °C in their sealed packaging. They can thus be stored between 1 and 3 years.

Additional information

The Ventis Pro5 multi gas detector was especially designed to silmutaneously detect up to 5 gases among the combustible gases, NH3, CO, CO/H2S, H2S HCN, NO2, O2, SO2, CO2 and HC.

 

This flexible detector features a panic button to alert nearby teams when user is in distress. It also features a mandown alert function which is set to activate after a defined period of time without motion.

 

In case of anormal concentrations, powerful audible (95 dB à 10 cm) and visual (ultra-bright blue and red lights) alarms will alert any operator working in the area, even in high-noise and dark environments.

Custom alarm action messages like “EVACUATE” or “VENTILATE” can furthermore be configured in case of emergency situations in order to safely and quickly take corrective actions.

 

Made of polycarbonate with protective rubber overmold, this gas detector is available either in black or high-visibility safety orange versions and can be combined with the VSP slide-on pump. Its integrated data logger can record up to 3 months of events. Water and dust-resistant (IP68), the Ventis Pro5 can be used in pumped version for use in confined spaces or without pump as a personal protective equipment.

 

The Ventis Pro5 portable multi gas detector also features the LENS Wireless technology. LENS is the first wireless gas detection solution that allows personal monitors and area monitors to communicate gas readings and alarms with one another. This way, panic and mandown alarms will be communicated to other Ventos Pro detectors operating in the same area in order to alert everyone on the hazardous situations.

 

Lastly, the Ventis Pro5 benefits from the iAssign® technology for site and user follow-up. Thanks to this enhanced technology, every data recorded by the device will be assigned to the user ID. This process allows amongst other things users to wear several gas detectors within the same working day.

Additional information

The X-plore 800 PAPR respirator system has been especially designed to enable its user to operate safely in toxic environments. Thanks to its robust designIP65 certified against dust and water jets – this positive pressure air purifying respiratory protective device is particularly well-suited for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX).

The X-plore 8000 PAPR respirator system is composed by a rugged casing that can includes a whole range of specific PAPR filters in order to meet requirements of almost any industrial application. A breathing hose available in three different versions and a face piece (PAPR mask or hood) complete this system. The device can be worn with a special belt and can be equipped with a standard battery, which provides at least 4 hours run time, or a high capacity battery for an extended run time of at least 8 hours. The belt ensures optimal comfort of use and perfect weight balance. This positive pressure respirator has been especially engineered to fit perfectly the user without disturbance.

Available in standard version as well as ATEX certified fireproof version, the X-plore 8000 respirator features protected air inlets which ensure that no dust, water or even sparks come into contact with filters.

Thanks to its enhanced technology, the PAPR respirator system automatically detects the connected face piece in order to adjust the injected airflow. Integrated temperature and pressure sensors in the housing also enable the automatic adjustment of the airflow. A wide range of face pieces – PAPR hoods & masks - is available to meet even the most demanding requirements from any application. This way, the housing of the X-plore 8000 can be connected to half-hoods, full hoods, protective visors, helmets, half-masks, panoramic masks or even helmets specifically dedicated to welding activities.

The X-plore 8000 PAPR respirator also features a smart alarm system which purpose is to alert user in case of problems. This way, if the air flow is not sufficient or in case of low battery status, visual (operational display), acoustic (80 dBA at 1 meter) and vibrating alarms activate to alert user of the failure. Moreover, an integrated optical sensor avoids any use without a filter for an optimal safety of use.
