  • Methane (CH4)

    Methane (CH4) poses a risk to personnel safety not only because the gas is highly combustible but is also an asphyxiant that can displace oxygen in enclosed areas. Measuring ambient levels of methane are an important component of quantifying greenhouse gas emissions. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response times, short-life spans, cross inference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has a low cost of ownership. Boreal is your solution for precision and accuracy for CH4 monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

    Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a colourless and odorless gas that is naturally occurring in our atmosphere. CO2 is heavier than air, can displace oxygen, and is soluble in water. Carbon Dioxide is an essential greenhouse gas that is closely monitored due to its links to global warming and ocean acidification. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response times, short-life spans, cross interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has low cost of ownership. Boreal is your solution for precision and accuracy for CO2 monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:CO2

     

  • Hydrogen Fluoride (HF)

    Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a highly dangerous colorless gas or liquid. Upon contact with tissue, hydrogen fluoride is highly corrosive and toxic which exposures can lead to severe or fatal consequences. In a gaseous state, HF is lighter than air. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response times, short-life spans, cross interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has a low cost of ownership. Boreal is your solution for precision and accuracy for HF monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:HF

  • Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S)

    Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is a colourless, toxic, corrosive, flammable, and explosive gas. At very low concentrations H2S can be identified by its foul odor resembling rotten eggs. Hydrogen sulfide is heavier than air and can collect in low lying areas. With H2S being so detrimental to personnel safety it is imperative that your gas detection system identifies the gas as quickly as possible. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response time, short-life spans, cross interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has low cost of ownership. Boreal’s your solution for precision and accuracy for H2S monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:H2S

  • Ammonia (NH3)

    Ammonia (NH3) is a caustic, hazardous, and colourless gas that has a distinct and pungent identifying smell. Ammonia has a boiling point of -33C, is lighter than air, combustible, and is soluble in water. In addition to monitoring ammonia for personal safety there are strong environmental drivers to measure and quantify ambient ammonia concentrations. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response time, short-life spans, cross interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has low cost of ownership. Boreal’s your solution for precision and accuracy for NH3 monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:NH3

  • Hydrogen Chloride (HCl)

    Hydrogen Chloride (HCl) is a colourless and corrosive gas which produces hydrochloric acid upon contact with humidity in the air or on skin contact. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response times, short-life spans, cross interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has a low cost of ownership. Boreal is your solution for precision and accuracy for HF monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:HCl

  • Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN)

    Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN), also known as formonitrile, is a colorless and extremely poisonous, and explosive gas that is lighter than air and boils around room temperature. The extreme toxicity of hydrogen cyanide is detrimental to human health and needs a gas system that detects HCN the second it is present. Hydrogen cyanide is highly toxic because it inhibits cellular oxidative processes. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response time, short-life spans, cross interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has low cost of ownership. Boreal’s your solution for precision and accuracy for HCN monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:HCN

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)

    Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a deadly colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. CO is slightly heavier than air and is toxic over specific concentrations. Carbon Monoxide is a useful industrial gas which is widely used as a fuel and a reducing agent. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response times, short-life spans, cross-interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has a low cost of ownership. Boreal is your solution for precision and accuracy for CO monitoring.

    Please contact a Boreal representative to determine the optimal gas specifications for your application. Listed below are the typical configurations:CO

  • Acetylene (C2H2)

    Acetylene (C2H2), in its purest form is colourless and odorless. Acetylene is slightly heavier than air, has an auto ignition temperature of 3,300C (6,000F). Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response times, short-life spans, cross-interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has a low cost of ownership. Boreal is your solution for precision and accuracy for C2H2 monitoring.
