Hydrogen becomes explosive at concentrations of 4% or higher, but maintaining concentration levels below the maximum threshold depends on various factors. Some of these include:
Every year, there are countless safety concerns raised by unions and individual employees regarding the possibility of gas explosions, and it is important to understand how to reduce or completely eliminate these concerns.
Installing the SBS-H2 hydrogen detection system on site will eliminate most of these concerns, saving management time and money, while also increasing safety and giving employees peace of mind.
In existing battery rooms, fans can be controlled by using the built-in relay to activate when the hydrogen level exceeds 1% gas concentration. Additional SBS-H2 safety features can be integrated with fire alarm panel zones, building management systems, network monitoring hubs, and can interface with MODBUS and SCADA systems.
At under $1,000 per unit, the SBS-H2 is a sound investment that will be a valuable safety addition to any battery charging area.
