HCl Monitoring and Detection

Hydrogen chloride (HCl) is a corrosive, flammable, and colorless gas with a piercing, pungent odor used for a variety of manufacturing processes and industrial chemical transformations. Effects of exposure range from mild irritation to severe burns of the skin and eyes. Additional risks include lung and heart issues and can even be fatal in extreme situations. Identifying hazardous levels of hydrogen chloride is essential for establishing safe working environments and ensuring efficient industrial and manufacturing operations.

HCl Monitoring Experience

Monitoring hydrogen chloride has many effective solutions for various applications. TAS has extensive knowledge of hydrogen chloride process emissions and storage and handling emissions for everything from bleach production to water sanitation. TAS has a proven track record of successful open path hydrogen chloride monitoring and detection system installations at over 40 different sites worldwide.
