Hydrogen Fluoride

Hydrogen fluoride is a dangerous, colorless, corrosive gas used in the manufacture of products.  Breathing in even small amounts of Hydrogen Fluoride can cause serious health issues.

What is Hydrogen Fluoride?

Hydrogen Fluoride is a dangerous, corrosive chemical compound that can dissolve glass on contact. Hydrogen Fluoride is most commonly used to make refrigerants, plastics, aluminum, weed killers, and semiconductors for computers. It is also used in oil extraction and oil refining processes.

Even at low levels of exposure, Hydrogen Fluoride can cause chemical burns, disrupt the nervous system, damage lung tissue and can cause chronic lung disease. Long-term exposure can cause visual impairment, blindness, heart attacks or even death.

Hydrogen Fluoride monitoring

Although Hydrogen Fluoride is detectable through smell, only specialist gas detectors can accurately measure and monitor concentrations of this extremely toxic gas.

ATi’s range of industry-leading Gas Detection solutions are designed to measure a wide variety of toxic and combustible gases in hazardous locations. Each of our fixed or portable detectors can be designed as stand-alone units or multipoint systems. Utilizing ATi’s unique smart sensor technology, our gas detectors can go from Hydrogen Fluoride monitoring to Oxygen measurement in less than a minute, sounding an alarm if they reach dangerous levels.
