Using a benzene detector makes it possible to monitor the presence of this gas in ambient air and to trigger alarms in case of danger. This type of devices comes in several forms: fixed C6h6 detection with ATEX transmitters and portable C6H6 monitors. Single gas or multi gas, these devices monitor benzene concentrations through electrochemical sensors or through a PID lamp.
Benzene - CAS-71-43-2 - is a flammable, toxic and carcinogenic volatile organic compound VOC used in many industries (petrochemicals, electronics, laboratories, metalworking, perfumes). Depending on the different applications in which it will come into play, a benzene monitor will be selected according to the necessary measurement scale: ppm for toxicity or % LEL for explosivity.
