Download your free Container Gas Analysis White Paper and learn the best measurement practice!
Experience has shown that 10-20% of shipping containers contain dangerous levels of toxic gases and represent a major threat to people working in inspection, loading and unloading, and consumers. These gases are either fumigants or are arising from the packaging materials and goods. It is therefore essential that containers are tested before entry is permitted, but there is growing concern that insufficient numbers of containers are being tested properly.
A wide variety of test instruments are used for testing containers and it is vitally important that any limitations in the monitoring technique are understood. There is a growing move to monitoring technologies that are able to measure large numbers of gases simultaneously.
In this White Paper the sources of toxic chemicals and international regulations are presented. In addition, the White Paper explains the advantages and limitations of the most commonly used monitoring technologies.
