Hydrazine detector - N2H4 gas
Designed to monitor N2H4 concentrations, hydrazine detectors are used in many fields that use this gas: chemistry (synthesis of organic molecules), petrochemistry (especially used as fuel for rockets), textile (coloring agent), fuel cells, or photography (developer agent).

Hydrazine hazards - CAS 302-01-2
Also known as diazane, hydrazine is a flammable, corrosive and toxic gas. This substance is also classified as mutagenic, carcinogenic and reprotoxic. Contact with the N2H4 liquid form may cause severe skin damage. Hydrazine exposure and inhalation of the gas can cause many health effects that may lead to death (irritation of the respiratory tract and eyes, dizziness, convulsions, disruption of vital organs (liver, kidneys, nervous system), and pulmonary edema.
Given the dangerous nature of this gas, the use and storage of hydrazine requires special attention to preserve infrastructures and the health of operators. Hydrazine monitoring solutions are divided into two types of devices: on one hand portable detectors and on the other hand fixed gas detection systems.
Portable N2H4 gas detector
Our selection of portable gas detectors dedicated to the N2H4 is divided in two categories: conventional hand held portable gas detectors and area gas monitors.
Portable hydrazine detectors are very effective and practical PPE (personal protective equipment). To best protect their users, these robust and easy-to-use devices offer a measurement range of 0 to 5 ppm for N2H4 with a resolution of 0.1ppm, and have a triple alarm (LED, 90dB sound, vibrations).
Area gas monitors can watch a wider area, and are able to create a communication network to monitor and disseminate alerts to all workers over a larger area.
Colorimetric and dosimeter tubes are also available for one-off measurements of N2H4 concentrations and measurement of the time weighted average value (TWA).
Fixed Hydrazine Detector
Fixed gas detectors available for hydrazine detection have many characteristics that enable adaptation to different environments: high-performance electrochemical sensors, optical analysis system, measurement display, ATEX and IECEx certification, ultra-resistant materials, 4-20 mA outputs, easy to use interface, etc. Fixed detectors provide continuous monitoring of hydrazine concentration in the air. These devices can work independently (alarms and power supply integrated into the device) or can be connected to a complete gas detection system (with a central controller unit).
