Carbon Dioxide

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a colourless and odourless gas, which is produced during respiration by all animals, fungi and micro-organisms that depend directly or indirectly on living or decaying plants for food.

What is Carbon Dioxide?

Carbon Dioxide is one of the most important gases on the earth because it is necessary for the survival of life. However, it also poses real health dangers at high levels, which can often prove to be fatal. This inorganic chemical compound has a wide range of commercial uses, including creating an inert environment for welding, fire suppression, production of lasers and for the carbonation of soft drinks.

Wherever there is Carbon Dioxide on workplace premises, there is a risk of potentially fatal carbon dioxide leak.

Carbon Dioxide monitoring

CO₂ monitoring to determine carbon dioxide levels is vital and an intrinsic part of indoor environmental quality strategies. Accurate control of critical indoor environmental parameters by specialist Carbon Dioxide monitors is not only essential for the well-being of staff, but also has a major impact on energy efficiency and the environment.
