Ammonia is a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen with the formula NH₃. A stable binary hydride, and the simplest pnictogen hydride, ammonia is a colourless gas with a distinct characteristic of a pungent smell.
About 80% of the ammonia produced by industry is used in agriculture as fertilizer. Ammonia is also used as a refrigerant gas, for purification of water supplies, and in the manufacture of plastics, explosives, textiles, pesticides, dyes, and other chemicals.
Ammonia is not highly flammable, but containers of ammonia may explode when exposed to high heat.
It is therefore important to have suitable gas detection either Fixed or portable / Personal or both to protect workers from the effects of inhaling Ammonia (NH3)
Fixed Gas Detection
Riken Keiki GD-70D is a sample drawing intelligent gas detector that has an option of mounting several Ammonia sensors with ranges of 0-10ppm , 0-75ppm or 0-150ppm ideal for leak detection . The GD-70D can operate standalone or for large area applications can be connected to the RM-5000 Gas monitoring panel or for very large applications above 12 detection points up to 96 detection points to the GADMS Lite system for Monitoring via Smart phone , Tablet or static PC .
Personal Gas detection
The SC-04-NH3 offers cost effective single gas personal detection for Ammonia ( NH3 ) in a small compact package whereas the GX-3R Pro can combine confined space gas monitoring ( LEL / H2S / CO / O2 ) with NH3 in one small personal gas detector with Bluetooth connectivity offering email notification of gas alarms , Man down and panic alarms and GPS Location to a central point for lone worker monitoring
Portable sample draw gas monitor
GX-6000 can also mount a smart sensor for Ammonia ( NH3 ) for easy portable leak detection around pipes and containers

Li-ion battery electrodes are manufactured by casting a slurry onto a metallic current collector. The slurry contains an active material, conductive carbon, and a binder. The binder is pre-dissolved in a solvent, most commonly N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP). After mixing, the resulting slurry is cast onto the current collector and then dried. Evaporating the solvent to create a dry porous electrode is needed to fabricate the battery. Drying can take a wide range of time with some electrodes taking 24 hours at more than 120 °C to completely dry.View Story
Laboratories regularly use inert gases in a number of applications. Helium and Argon, for example, provide a stable inert atmosphere within glove-boxes by purging the Oxygen. In addition they provide the same function in Additive Manufacturing (AM) machines and 3D printer chambers. Liquid Nitrogen is also used to provide temperatures as low as -196°C . This makes it ideal for use in Cryo-biology, Cryo-Surgery and General Cryogenic research.View Story
