Bromine (Br2)

Find here the essential information on bromine (Br2): characteristics, effects on health, detection devices & systems – bromine gas detector – and proper respiratory protective equipment (gas mask or PAPR with B gas filter).

Bromine gas detector and Br2 respiratory protection

Bromine properties

Because of its disinfectant properties, bromine (Br2) is used in wastewater treatment plants to replace chlorine for bacteria management. Bromine is also used in agriculture for producing pesticides and fumigation agents. But bromine is above all exploited in the pharmaceutical industry as a medicine ingredient against pneumonia.

Bromine effects on health

At ambient temperature, bromine is liquid with a brown-reddish taint and a pungent smell detectable under 1 ppm. When cold, it releases highly toxic suffocating vapors by inhalation (R26). Bromine is also very corrosive and toxic to aquatic organisms (R50) and can cause severe chemical burns (R35). When in contact with water, it forms hydrobromic acid, a very corrosive substance.

Bromine gas detector (Br2)

Despite its pungent smell, only a bromine gas detector can accurately measure concentrations of this gas. Two Br2 detection technologies are available to monitor bromine hazards: either electrochemical with the PortaSens (recommended), or with a photo- ionization lamp – as bromine features an ionization capability under 10.6 eV.

Featuring PID technology (photo-ionization sensor) and designed for organic vapor detection, the CUB COV detector (for volatile organic compound) offers ppb or ppm VOC and TAC (total aromatic compound) measurements.

  • volatile organic compounds detector for VOC monitoring
  • Ultra-light, discrete, robust and easy to use
  • High sensitivity measurement (from 0.001 ppm depending on the version) and high reactivity (less than 5 seconds)
  • Alarm levels triggered by concentration levels (86 dB audible alarm, LED and vibrating alarm)
  • Data-logging
  • ATEX, CE, IECEx, China, USA and Canada (class I, II, III, Division I) approved

Additional information

PortaSense II gas leak detector is a single-gas detector to monitor rare gases. This device is powered with a D alkaline battery for around 75 hours runtime and an internal Nicad battery with an autonomy of around 6 hours.

The PortaSense gas leak detector can detect many gases thanks to its large range of interchangeable sensors. Majors detected gases are: alcohol, B2H6, Br2, C2H2, CH2O, Cl2, ClO2, CO, COCl2, F2, acid gas, GeH4, H2, H2O2, H2S, HCl, HF, NH3, NO, NO2, O2, O3, PH3, SiH4. In complement to this detected gases, this monitor features different measuring ranges for every gas.

The PortaSense II primarily detect gas leaks with its integrated sampling pump. This enables accurate measurements of hazardous gas concentrations. This gas leak detector with interchangeable sensors is moreover calibration-free, which makes it very versatile.

This single-gas detector features audible and audible alarms with 3 levels: caution, warning, and alarm with adjustable setpoints. A fourth alarm will indicate a low flow or low battery.

Thanks to its internal memory, the detector can record event data during 8 days with 1 minute interval. Furthermore, Portasense II features an RS32 output to connect a PC for data downloading.
