Water purification and wastewater treatment processes produce a wide variety of toxic and combustible gas hazards that must be monitored on a continuous basis. Toxic gases also can build up in confined spaces, depleting oxygen and making those locations highly dangerous for plant personnel.

Tyco Gas and Flame Detection products are ideally suited for water treatment systems. They are designed for all safety needs in unclassified areas, making them resistant to corrosion and highly durable in harsh environments.
