Hydrogen peroxide – H2O2

This page presents information about hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) or perhydroxic acid or oxygenated water, appropriate detection means – hydrogen peroxide detector – and proper respiratory protective equipment – self-contained breathing apparatus and supplied air respirator.

Hydrogen peroxide properties

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) – also known as oxygenated water – is a gas widely used as a bleaching agent in paper plants and the textile industry. Because of its disinfectant properties, this gas is used in laboratories to sterilize, in the food industry to disinfect packaging and in the pharmaceutical industry to sanitize contact lens or to produce bactericidal products.

Hydrogen peroxide effects on health

Hydrogen peroxide is most commonly known under its liquid state – oxygenated water. Whether liquid or gaseous, this substance is colorless and odorless. H2O2 is corrosive and harmful by inhalation (R20) or if swallowed (R22) and might cause severe burns (R35). Although this gas features no explosive limits, heating may cause an explosion (R5) and its contact with combustible material may cause fire (R8).

 
Highly concentrated solutions can cause severe damage to the skin and eyes and important irritation to breathing and digestive systems. Repeated exposure lead to abnormal skin coloration and hair bleaching. To date, no relation with potential carcinogenic effects or reproductive function damage has been found.

hydrogen peroxide detector & H2O2 sensor

As H2O2 is colorless and odorless, only a hydrogen peroxide monitor can accurately measure concentrations of this highly toxic gas. It is recommended to use portable or fixed ppm or ppb hydrogen peroxide detection systems or devices.

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

Fixed gas detector B12
  • Power supply: from 12 to 28 VDC – low consumption
  • Measuring range: 0-10/100 ppm or 0-200/2,000 ppm
  • Corrosion-resistant sensor
  • Direct real-time measure of H2O2 concentration

Additional information

The B12 transmitters are loop-powered gas detectors that transmit a 4-20 mA linear signal depending on the gas concentration. The B12 fixed gas detector is a two-wire transmitter for monitoring hazardous gases in ambient air. This device has been designed to monitor gas concentration in any type of industrial plant environment.

B12 transmitters are available for monitoring hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Each transmitter is manufactured for this specific gas with two different measuring ranges: 0-10 to 100 ppm or 0-200 to 2000 ppm.

The H2O2 detectors are normally supplied with the sensor coupled to the enclosure. However, the unit can be supplied with a remote sensor for special applications. This separated sensor can be located up to 25 feet from the transmitter.

The B12 transmitter enclosure is made of NEMA 4X polystyrene that suits in virtually any industrial environment. An optional LCD display provides local indication of gas concentration on the front of the enclosure.

A special sensor design is available as an option that allows gas sensors to be inserted into a duct or pipe through a special adapter. This system is designed to perform gas detection in confined areas with easy removal of the sensor for servicing or maintenance. This special mounting fitting provides a special calibration mean to calibrate the sensor without complete removal from the duct.

The B12 transmitters uses electrochemical sensors to detect presence of hydrogen peroxide. These sensors are designed for use in ambient air or in ventilation ducts at temperatures of 0° to 50° C and a relative humidity between 20 and 98%.

The B12 gas detector is also available in an explosion-proof version. The version is housed in a galvanized steel enclosure rated for Class 1, Div. 1, Groups B, C, & D locations. However, the LCD display is not available on this explosion-proof version.
