Unexpected releases of toxic, reactive, or flammable liquids and gases in processes involving highly hazardous chemicals have been reported for many years. Incidents continue to occur in various industries that use highly hazardous chemicals which may be toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive, or may exhibit a combination of these properties. Regardless of the industry that uses these highly hazardous chemicals, there is a potential for an accidental release any time they are not properly controlled. This, in turn, creates the possibility of disaster. - OSHA 3132 2000 (Reprinted)
We have the technology, people and know how to assist you in compliance with Process Safety Management (PSM) standard.
SemiconductorIn Semiconductor Fabs and LCD manufacturing plants, highly toxic and combustible gases such as Silane (SiH4), Arsine (AsH3), Phoshine (PH3) are used. Riken sensing technology allows these gases to be detected at very low ppm levels with stability and reliability. Riken have supplied the Electronics Industry worldwide, with thousands of these detectors to protect workers from potential gas leaks.
Petroleum refinery / PetrochemicalPetroleum refineries and petrochemical plants use and produce a variety of combustible and toxic gases in the production process. It has become popular to install fixed gas detectors at the plant perimeter to monitor gas leaks.
Iron and steel industryIn the iron and steel industry, coke gas, blast furnace gas, and converter gas are produced as a byproduct from the steel production process. These gases contain a huge amount of hydrogen (H2) and carbon dioxide (CO2), which is then re-used to generate electricity. Riken gas detectors help workers find potential gas dangers in these hazardous areas.
Constructional industryIn the Construction Industry where people are working in confined space, there is a high possibility of encountering Oxygen Deficiency and Toxic Gases from decomposing organic matter. For example this can be found in underground sites where tunnels are being constructed. To prevent accidents or disasters, Riken personal gas detectors are worn by people working in confined spaces.
Shipping / Shipbuilding industryShips carrying crude oil, LNG, LPG…etc have a risk of gas leakage from cargo tanks during transportation. Riken detection technology enables gas leaks to be detected at an early stage, preventing possible explosion and pollution at sea. In addition, Riken portable gas detectors are used for monitoring the ship’s cargo tanks during inerting, the environment for combustible and toxic gases, as well as oxygen deficiency in Confined Spaces.
Research laboratory / UniversityVarious combustible and toxic gases are used in research facilities and universities. Installing Riken fixed gas detectors into each room ensures a safe working environment. Our analyzer, capable of both X-ray (XRD) diffraction & fluorescence X-ray (XRF) analysis in the lab or on-site, has received a high reputation from researchers where removal of historical artifacts is prohibited from a site.
Fire fighter / Emergency rescueVarious kinds of danger exist, side-by-side, at fire or disaster sites, such as explosion from combustible gas, carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning by incomplete combustion, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) poisoning and oxygen deficiency. Riken portable gas detectors that detect up to 4 gases in one instrument are used to detect these gases.
Food industryNitrogen (N2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) gases are used in the packaging process of food products to prevent oxidation. These gases are known as asphyxiating gases, and Riken oxygen detectors are used to monitor any decrease in Oxygen levels in the production area. In the brewing industry Riken CO2 analyzers are used to monitor the purity of the CO2, which contributes towards the quality control of beer and carbonated drinks.
