Diborane – B2H6

Find here the essential information on diborane – or boron hydride (B2H6): characteristics, effects on health, detection devices & systems – B2H6 gas detector – and proper respiratory protective equipment (gas mask or powered air purifying respirator with B gas filter).

B2H6 gas detector and diborane respiratory protection against Diborane gas

Diborane properties

Diborane (B2H6) – also known as boroethane or boron hydride – is widely used in the chemical industry to produce rocket fuel in combination with fluorine. This very reactive gas is also used in the electronics and photovoltaic industries as a semi-conductor doping agent. Diborane is used as well during rubber curing to make it more elastic.

Diborane effects on health

Diborane (B2H6) is a colorless gas with a sweetish to foul smell. This gas is very toxic by inhalation (R26) and its time-weighted average value for 8 hours is set at 0.1 ppm. Extremely flammable (R12) with explosive limits between 0.8 and 88% volume, it can ignite spontaneously at ambient temperature in presence of humidity.

B2H6 gas detector (Diborane)

Despite its sweetish to foul smell, only a B2H6 gas detector can properly monitor concentrations of this gas. Even if this gas is extremely flammable (0.8% volume), an explosive level detection (LEL) would be useless as this gas is highly toxic. Thus a portable or fixed diborane detection solution should be selected.

The colorimetric gas detection tube system is a simple and accurate solution composed by a manual sampling pump and a specific gas detection tube. They are designed for use together.

  • Gas detector tubes Colorimetric tube
  • Accurate: the sampling pump features a mechanical accuracy piston which creates a vacuum then enables direct reading on the colored tube (colorimetric tube)
  • Swift: one or two pump strokes are enough to draw sample and the value can be directly read on the tube
  • User-friendly: no knowledge, no specific process and no technical competence are required

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.
