CO Sources

Carbon Monoxide is produced from the incomplete combustion of organic and fossil fuels such as oil, gas, wood, charcoal, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The normal combustion process in the presence of oxygen in the air releases carbon from the fuel, producing Carbon Dioxide (CO2), the same gas that we exhale when we breathe. However, if there is a lack of oxygen for the combustion process, or if the heating appliance is faulty, then Carbon Monoxide will be produced—which we do not want to inhale.

Caution: When choosing a stand alone CO alarm, remember, CO alarms respond only to carbon monoxide; they do not detect smoke, fire or gas leaks. Please contact us if you suspect that other gases can affect your work enviroment.

Aditional Information

CO Poisoning

Carbon Monoxide is a highly poisonous gas. Because it is colourless, odourless, and tasteless, this toxic gas is impossible for the human senses to detect, and therefore particularly dangerous.

How CO poisons

CO is absorbed into the body by simply breathing. It enters the lungs and attaches itself to haemoglobin in the blood, preventing the blood from absorbing oxygen, starving body tissues of vital oxygen. CO suffocates you from the inside. Prolonged or high level exposure to this toxic gas causes loss of consciousness, brain damage, and possibly death if not medically treated in time.

Poisoning from CO can happen in minutes or over an extended period of time, depending on the amount of CO in the air. It can happen to anyone—young or old, rich or poor—any place in the world. CO can also poison pets and working animals.

According to the OSHA standard, the maximum recommended exposure to carbon monoxide (CO) gas measured over an eight hour period is 35 ppm (parts per million) based upon a Workplace Exposure Standard. For further information about OSHA standard please clik here.

Note: Due Sensors are factory calibrated and cetification is 24 months valid once the calibration process is performed, we don't have a stock, we can sell you any sensor only as required.
