Swimming Pool Plant Room and Chlorine Gas Detection

Chlorine Gas Detection In Swimming Pool Plant Rooms

With 25 years of experience behind us, we deliver chlorine gas detection solutions designed to mitigate the health hazards posed by chlorine, a highly toxic gas frequently used as a cleaning chemical. Our decades of expertise means we’re well-versed in the most common risk scenarios involving chlorine, enabling us to tailor our systems to account for the most likely possibilities, ensuring reliable early warning and total peace of mind.

Chlorine Gas Sensor

Our Chlorine Gas Sensors are exceptionally useful for enhancing the safety of any swimming pool treatment systems that uses sodium hypochlorite to treat the water. Sodium hypochlorite is a widely-used alternative to chlorine gas as it’s much easier to safely handle and transport, but it’s still not without risks – if the water supply is ever interrupted, it can easily develop into a real and immediate hazard. That’s where chlorine gas sensors come in; they’re ideal for protecting human health and safety when the water circulation has stopped (or been reduced), but the automatic dosing system has continued to operate.

How our Chlorine Gas Detectors and Chlorine Gas Alarms can help

We design and deliver bespoke, cost-effective chlorine gas detection systems to provide reliable early warning against the build-up of toxic gases, protecting staff and swimmers alike. The chlorine gas detector consists of a number of interconnected components, including a central control panel, and an incredibly precise gas sensor, capable of detecting chlorine levels down to parts-per-million. This level of precision gives it the ability to detect chlorine in potentially dangerous measures that normally still wouldn’t be visible to the naked eye – while chlorine gas can sometimes be seen as a yellow-greenish colour, it’s only visible once it’s already reached lethal concentrations, and accumulates at floor level so it’s easy to miss. The control panel and chlorine gas alarm device can be positioned outside of the hazard area, so that users can apprise themselves of the risk without exposing themselves to any danger.

The dangers of being exposed to chlorine

Chlorine is a highly potent toxic gas, which can form harmful acids when it comes into contact with vulnerable human body parts like throats, lungs and eyes. It’s incredibly dangerous even in minuscule amounts – chlorine is toxic at levels over 0.5 parts per million, and just a few minutes of chlorine inhalation at concentrations between 50 to 1000ppm can kill an adult. The gas is 2.5 times heavier than air, so toxic concentrations will gather at ground level, making them potentially easy to overlook. There are, thankfully, a few clear warning signs – at toxic concentrations chlorine gas is visible as a greenish yellow colour, and it has a very distinct odour.
