Draeger Application: Detect Chlorine Gas More Effectively and Safely

Detect Chlorine Gas Effectively and Safely - Expert Tips For Practical Application

This Application Note from Dräger focuses on the challenges and solutions for detecting chlorine gas effectively and safely, particularly in the water treatment industry. Chlorine, while a common disinfectant, is highly reactive and can be difficult to detect due to its tendency to accumulate on surfaces, which may delay its detection by sensors. The note explains that chlorine’s reactivity poses a risk if not detected reliably, with exposure thresholds ranging from odor detection levels to concentrations that can cause unconsciousness or death within minutes. It discusses the inefficiencies of manual bump testing and the potential for contamination in mobile gas detectors. Dräger’s solution to these problems is the use of rapid sensors and the Dräger X-dock system, which provide faster response times, reducing test gas consumption and costs. The X-dock also allows for more efficient clearance measurements in confined spaces with the introduction of a new hose technology. The note emphasizes the importance of sensor speed for safety and economic reasons, illustrating the significant cost savings that can be achieved with faster sensors.

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
