Nitric oxide – NO

This page provides information on nitric oxide (NO) – also called nitrogen oxide or nitrogen monoxide: characteristics, effects on health, detection tools – nitric oxide detector or NOX detector – and proper respiratory protective equipment (ABEK1NOCO20-P3 combined filter or a self-contained breathing apparatus).

Nitric oxide NOX gas detector and NO respiratory protection

Nitric oxide properties

Nitric oxide (NO) – also known as nitrogen oxide – is an anthropogenic gas released by contact between nitric acid and many compounds. It can be found in many industries like wood (sawdust), explosives (dynamite), metals (engraving) and in high heat welding applications. This gas – which is partially responsible for atmospheric pollution – is exhausted by diesel-powered engines; that’s why it is present in underground parking garages..

Nitric oxide effects on health

Nitric oxide is a colorless gas featuring a sweet smell that can be pungent starting at 0.3 ppm. As it is slightly soluble into water, it reacts with water molecules to form nitric acid, which is very corrosive. In case of chronic exposure, this gas can have irreversible effects (poison gas); it is also very toxic by inhalation (R26) and might cause chemical burns (R34).

Nitric oxide detector - NO

Even if nitric oxide is detectable through smell, only a NOx detector can accurately measure concentrations of this very toxic gas. It is advised to use fixed or portable nitric oxide detection devices.

The PAC® 8000 portable special gas detector can accurately monitor concentrations of gases like phosgene (COCl2), organic vapors (OV), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3) and nitrogen oxide (NO).

  • The Drager PAC 8000 portable special gas detector
  • Can detect lower gas concentrations (starting at 0.01 ppm for COCl2).
  • Intuitive operation with large backlit display.
  • Data recording (concentration levels and alarm events).
  • 360° alarm (90 dB signal, LED lights, vibrating alarm).
  • ATEX, CE, IECEx, cCSAus approved.

Additional information

Small, compact and lightweight, the PAC 8000 portable special gas detector is a disposable gas detector designed to continuously detect carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorine (Cl2), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), ammonia (NH3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), phosphine (PH3) organic vapors (OV or OV-A) during two years.

This personal monitor can be equipped as well with specific sensors in order to monitor hazardous concentrations of special gases like ozone (O3) at very low concentrations from 0.02 ppm, phosgene (COCl2) from 0.01 ppm and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) from 0.04 ppm.

 

The PAC 8000 portable special gas detector has been designed for use in any situation, even in the harshest environments. Thanks to its robust housing design, this device is waterproof, impact-resistant and immune to corrosive chemical products. Its two powerful sensors with a low T90 response time ensure ultra fastt reaction and accurate measurement of the target gas. Its filter is protected against water, dust and other foreign bodies and can be easily replaced if clogged without particular technical skills. Thanks to its crocodile clip, it can be easily worn close to the breathing tracts to get even more precise measurements.

 

 

Thanks to its two powerful flashing LED that can be seen at à 360°, its 90 dB audible alarm and its vibrating alarm, the PAC 8000 special gas detector can alert users in presence of hazardous concentrations of the target gas.

 

The large backlit screen of this portable and disposable gas detector clearly indicates gas concentrations even in the darkest areas but also displays other important information such as remaining battery capacity or passed alarm events values. The PAC 8000 portable gas detector also logs concentrations and alarms so that they can be downloaded to a PC via an interface and processed further even if they were already acknowledged.

 

Each version of the special gas detector PAC 8000  is equipped with extremely durable sensors and powerful batteries to provide a continuous runtime over two years.
