Dimethylethylamine – DMEA – C4H11N

This page presents information about dimethylethylamine – or DMEA – (C4H11N): characteristics, effects on health, detection devices and systems – DMEA gas detector – and proper respiratory protective equipment (gas mask or powered air purifying respirator with ABEK gas filter).

DMEA gas detector and dimethylethylamine (C4H11N) respiratory protection

Dimethylethylamine – DMEA properties

Usually known as DMEA, dimethylethylamine (C4H11N) is very present in foundries. This gas is used as a cross-linking agent for synthetic resins (phenoplasts, polyurethanes), which are essentially used in foundries core-making process. It is also a polymerization catalyst for polyamides.

Dimethylethylamine – DMEA effects on health

Dimethylethylamine (DMEA) is a highly flammable gas with explosive limits between 2.3 and 12% volume. While burning, this gas exhausts very toxic fumes that contain ammonia, nitrogen oxides and traces of cyanide. This is also a toxic gas, harmful when inhaled (H332) or ingested (H302). As it is very irritating, it might cause skin burns and severe eye damage.

DMEA gas detector - Dimethylethylamine (C4H11N)

Even if it is detectable through smell, only a DMEA gas detector can accurately measure concentrations of this gas. Two dimethylethylamine detection solutions are available: either in toxicity with a ppm measurement (not advised as this gas is toxic), or in explosive concentration with a LEL percentage monitoring (combustible gas detector).

The GASBADGE PRO toxic gas monitor is a classic single-gas detector with interchangeable sensors and features a large range of electrochemical sensors. This technology is designed to detect toxic gases: Cl2 (chlorine), ClO2 (chlorine dioxide), CO (carbon monoxide), HCN (hydrogen cyanide), H2 (hydrogen), H2S (hydrogen sulfide), NH3 (ammonia), NO2 (nitrogen dioxide), O2 (oxygen), PH3 (phosphine) and SO2 (sulfur dioxide).

The GASBADGE PRO has 3 alarms: a powerful 95 dB audible alarm to alert even in noisy environments, a red LED visual alarm for view alert signals even in the darkest places like confined spaces and a vibrating alarm.

These alarms will be triggered by 4 events: if the lower or the upper limit values are reached, if concentrations get over the occupational exposure limit or if the average value threshold is exceeded. Abnormal gas concentrations and other data can also be saved and downloaded from the device.

Compact and lightweight, the GASBADGE PRO toxic gas detector is made with a strong polycarbonate housing with a robust and waterproof over-mold in compliance with IP67 protection. The GASBADGE PRO is ATEX approved as well for explosive atmosphere under current EU standards.
