Título Carbon dioxide detection in public house cellars
Información bibliográfica Jan. 1985, Vol.3, No.1, p.36-37. Illus. 1 ref.
Resumen In the cellars of public houses ("pubs") carbon dioxide from cylinders is used for the dispersal of beer from containers. To detect hazardous leaks from these cylinders, a detector-alarm has been developed which is cheap, maintenance-free and easily installed. It provides an immediate audible and visible alarm when the concentration by volume of CO2 in the local air reaches 0.5% (first stage), and again when it reaches 2% (second stage). Analysis is by the measurement of infrared absorption of sampled air. Test results and observations are described. Recommended safety practices for public house cellars are given.
