Wastewater Detection with Otis Instrument’s OI-6400

In the wastewater industry, operators are constantly seeking ways to mitigate risk and ensure the safety of personnel. The main gasses of concern throughout wastewater plants include hydrogen sulfide, methane and oxygen. Hydrogen sulfide and methane are byproducts of the decomposition of organic materials that are present in waste flows feeding the plant. The constant…

The Hazards of Wastewater Plants

Wastewater plants are full of confined spaces, like recirculation pits, clarifier tanks, and wet wells. These spaces alone can be hazardous to workers, with increasing danger considering the gases that could be potentially present in the air from processes at wastewater treatment facilities. Methane and hydrogen sulfide, as well as byproducts of decomposing organic materials…

Otis Link’s OIA-SDPUMP

The Otis Instruments WireFree OIA-SDPUMP measures the gas concentration in the head-space of a tank before opening the thief hatch. The instrument draws in an air sample at a configurable period (for example every 15 minutes), allowing the sensor to report back the present gas concentration that may be present.  A message is sent to…
