Sulfur Dioxide

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) is a colourless, toxic and corrosive gas with an irritating pungent odour

What is Sulfur Dioxide?

Sulfur Dioxide is often used as a fumigant, a food preservative and a bleaching agent, along with also being a common air pollutant. Exposure to SO2 can occur in industrial facilities such as power plants, oil refineries and food and beverage factories.

Sulfur Dioxide monitoring

Breathing in sulphur dioxide causes irritation of the nose and throat and exposure to higher concentrations can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and corrosive damage to the airways and lungs. Many processes using Sulfur Dioxide are subject to strict gas detection regulations, therefore careful monitoring to detect and protect is vital as part of Quality Controls Programmes.

ATi’s flexible range of fixed and portable toxic gas detection solutions help any industry to optimise places of work, protect air quality and safeguard health and safety.
