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).

Especially designed to simultaneously detect from 1 up to 7 gases, the X-am 8000 portable multi gas detector can also be equipped with an external sampling pump to draw remote samples. For combustible gas (catalytic or infrared), amines, Cl2, ClO2, CO, CO2 (electrochemical or infrared), H2, H2S, HCN, NH3, NO, NO2, O2, O3, PH3, SO2 and volatile organic compounds (10.6 eV PID lamp) monitoring.

Additional information

Especially designed for use in pump mode or diffusion mode, the X-am 8000 portable multi gas detector can simultaneously monitor up to 7 gases.

 

Particularly well-suited to perform control measurement before operating in confined spaces, the 7 gas monitor X-am 8000 can be equipped with an external sampling pump available in option. Using the pump mode is very convenient and useful to monitor spaces hard to access. Easy to mount and to remove, this pump requires no tools and is it very easy to switch from diffusion mode to pump mode.

 

Compact and discrete, this portable 7 gas monitor features 3 navigation keys and a colored display for easy and swift measurement values readout. Very convenient, this detector has been engineered for one-handed operation. As it is also robust and rugged, this multi gas detector is extremely efficient in hostile environments and in the harshest conditions.

 

This device also features three bright LED indicators based on a color code compliant with the NF EN 60079-29-1, NF EN 45544-1 and NF EN 50104 standards. This way, the red light indicates an alarm due to hazardous concentrations gas; the yellow light an alarm is related to a device failure –like a low battery status for example - and the green light indicates the proper operation of the device and that it is ready for use. In case of an alert event, audible (110 dB at 30 cm) and vibrating alarms are activated in addition to the visual alarm.

 

The 7 gas monitor X-am 8000 also integrates an impact detection system. This way, any mechanical impact that can damage the device is stored in the device’s memory. This data is stored in the device internal memory that can also store data on hundreds of exposure hours.

 

Lastly, the X-am 8000 portable mutli gas detector is powered by a lithium-ion battery that can be charged through an induction charger. Thanks to this innovative non-intrusive charging system, common issues from standard charging systems are removed – such as pin corrosion and contact problems.

The MX6-iBrid gas detector is an high-tech portable multi gas detector. Thanks to its rechargeable ion-lithium (Li-ion) battery, it can operates around 24 hours continuously. The optional extended battery can replace the standard one and extend the autonomy up to 36 hours. A lighter version with AA battery is also available for 10 hours of operation.

The MX6-iBrid portable multi gas detector can detect up to 6 gases simultaneously according to the configuration (some locations are dedicated to specific sensors). A large range of gases is furthermore available: combustible gases, chlorine (Cl2), chlorine dioxide (ClO2), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen (H2), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), hydrogen chloride (HCl), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ammonia (NH3), oxygen (O2), phosphine (PH3), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and many volatile organic compounds (VOC).

The MX6-iBrid combines the highest sensor technologies for accurate measures. Oxygen and toxic gases are detected with an electrochemical sensor. Combustible and explosive gases are on the other hand detected with a catalytic sensor or through infrared absorption. This IR technology is also used to detect carbon dioxide. Lastly, volatile organic compounds are detected with a photoionization sensor (<10,6 eV).

This portable multi gas detector is considered as a high-technology device as it is the first portable gas detector featuring a colored display. This allows users to easily read events curbs of every gas without misunderstanding. The MX6-iBrid is compliant with the most demanding ATEX standards and with the IP67 ingress protection level thanks to its shock-resistant polycarbonate overmolded housing.
