Why Use a Formaldehyde Gas Sensor?
Formaldehyde is a colourless gas with a pungent irritating odour. It is widely used in many industrial applications. It is also commonly used as preservatives in medical laboratories. Formaldehyde, though being widely used, the fact is – it is highly toxic and can lead to severe consequences if appropriate control measures are not in place.
Health effects caused by exposure to formaldehyde primarily involve the body organs that first come into contact with this gas. For instance eyes, lungs, mouth, and skin. Workers can inhale formaldehyde as a gas or vapour or absorb it through the skin as a liquid. Formaldehyde is harmful to the skin, eyes, and other tissues on direct contact, and inhalation of vapors irritates the respiratory tract and can induce severe damage to the lungs and even death at very high concentrations. To minimize the toxic effects of Formaldehyde, it is mandatory to have a Formaldehyde monitoring system that monitors and controls the levels of Formaldehyde within the permissible level.
