Derived from either petroleum or natural gas—two highly combustible products—petrochemicals bring significant risks during production. Similarly, the chemical industry utilizes a wide range of substances during manufacturing processes that may be hazardous. Different hazards exist with different processes, so determining the right hazard with the right gas or flame detection system at the right time is critical.
