In any food storage facility, food storage gas detection is essential for storing your foodstuffs. There is a wide array of gases that are currently used in both the production and storage of foodstuffs, including volatile organic compounds (VOC), carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. For instance, greenhouses will contain carbon dioxide detection systems to ensure that plant growth is accurately controlled. The concentration of carbon dioxide is monitored throughout the storage of fruits to ensure they ripen at the optimum time. Food preservation can also release other noxious gases, including ammonia.
Also, refrigerants providing the correct atmosphere for the foodstuffs are monitored due to their toxicity. CO2 can also be used as an ingredient in fizzy drinks and as a passive atmosphere for packaging.
Enclosed industrial refrigerators and freezer rooms are often used in these applications, which means that workers could be exposed to these gases in small, enclosed spaces, heightening the contact with the gas. It’s essential your workers are protected from these gases, and that is why TQ Environmental offer gas detection systems for your business.

Refrigerant Leak Detector
Early detection of such gases will help prevent any injury or poisoning, which is why TQ Environmental have various refrigerant leak detector options to provide protection within these environments. These include the TQ4200 and TQ4300, which are aspirated systems covering both refrigerants and CO2.
We also have hard-wired applications for ammonia and other refrigerants. These are the TQ4000 and TQ8000, which are used in conjunction with TQ122, GD231 and GD233 sensors. If you’d like to enquire and learn more about TQ Environmental’s range of refrigerant detection systems, get in touch today
