Oxygen Deficiency Monitors

Oxygen deprivation is called a silent killer since there is no warning that the air is oxygen deficient. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) specifies that a hazardous condition may include one where the oxygen concentration is below 19.5% or above 23.5%.

Industries that commonly use compressed, oxygen depleting gases, such as nitrogen, argon, carbon dioxide, and helium among others, include but not limited to laboratories, MRI and TEM facilities, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, research and development, semi-conductor, additive manufacturing, and cryogenic facilities.

According to guidelines put out by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) an oxygen monitoring device shall be installed in any indoor location where compressed gases or cryogenic liquids are stored and/or dispensed in manner that could create the potential for the displacement of oxygen.

Additionally, compressed gases or cryogenic liquids shall not be located or dispensed in any indoor location that does not have proper ventilation.

Furthermore, the oxygen monitoring device should have alarm and warning levels set according to the OSHA guidelines.
