Chemical Sensing and Ammonia Entrapment
Ammonia is widely used as a refrigerant because of its efficiency and availability. However, care must be taken to ensure that it isn’t accidentally released, due to its toxic nature. The first defense against accidental release is detection–and for that reason, Innovative Refrigeration Systems offers its chemical sensing services.
Ammonia sensors must be placed at strategic locations around ammonia refrigeration systems. Innovative Refrigeration Systems has almost 30 years of experience in the industry, which means that our expert teams know exactly where to place ammonia sensors to avoid overspending while still maintaining optimum safety. Our sensors catch leaks early so that operators can fix them before they become a bigger issue.
Even in the best ammonia refrigeration systems, accidents can happen. For those cases, Innovative Refrigeration Systems designs each system with failsafes that can reroute released ammonia toward dispersion tanks. The dispersion tanks neutralize the ammonia so that the resultant product can be released safely, or handled properly by chemical teams. Our experts can keep you and your employees safe by giving you the safest design possible.
