Ethanol Detectors - C2H6O gas

Ethanol detectors are used to measure the concentrations of this chemical compound in the air and to alert when it reaches a dangerous level. Also known as ethyl alcohol, ethanol is mainly used in the agro-food industry. Indeed, it is naturally present in most alcoholic beverages but can also be transformed to serve in other types of industries, so it becomes unfit for consumption. It will then serve as fuel, solvent, cleaner or insecticides. C2H6O detectors are most often found in the food and pharmaceutics industries, and used in paints and laboratories.

Ethanol hazards - CAS 64-17-5

Ethanol is a colorless liquid with a pleasant smell that can be smelled starting at 49 ppm. C2H6O gas is a health hazard. For better safety it is important to be equipped with ethanol detectors. Whether in its liquid form or as vapor, C2H6O is irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract. Repeated exposure to high concentration (5000 to 10 000 ppm) is irritating and corrosive to the skin. Ethanol is a combustible gas, explosive limits in the air are between 3.3% and 19% vol. In addition, it can react with other elements and form an explosive mixture in the air.

Portable C2H6O Detectors

A portable ethanol detector can monitor concentrations present in the air and prevent any danger. The different types of portable C2H6O detectors can measure concentration levels in ppm for toxicity and in explosive capacity from 0 to 100% LEL.

Fixed ethanol detector

There are two types of fixed ethanol detectors: with infrared technology or with electrochemical sensors. A C2H6O transmitter provides continuous monitoring of concentrations in at risk areas. The device can then transmit measurements made to a gas detection controller unit which will triggers alarms and actuators.
