Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) Monitoring
Hydrogen cyanide (HCN) is a colourless/pale blue liquid or gas with a distinct smell. It is sometimes called 'prussic acid' or 'hydrocyanic acid'.
HCN is a by-product of reacting methane and ammonia, and it is also found naturally in the environment.
HCN can cause headaches, dizziness and difficulty breathing at low levels and unconsciousness and coma at high levels. Death will occur if the concentration of HCN reaches 2,000 parts per million (ppm).
Analox Sensor Technology offer a range of OEM sensors to monitor HCN in the workplace, including the 3000si and MEC. Contact us today to find out more about the solutions we can offer.
