Monitoring hazardous gases is highly complex, yet critical to semiconductor manufacturing. This book includes excerpts from codes and standards relevant to the industry, including the latest editions of model fire codes. This guide provides the basics to successfully comply with code requirements. The guidelines in this book go beyond minimum design standards to ensure that best industry practices are employed to address the many safety, environmental and economic concerns of hazardous occupancy facilities. System certification, redundancy and integration of gas sensors into a monitoring, control and alarm system are discussed. This is a field-guide reference. It is spiral-bound for easier ""benchtop"" access to the information you need while setting up your gas monitoring systems. It is valuable to everyone involved in handling hazardous gases.


Valuable to everyone directly or indirectly involved in handling hazardous gases, and is especially useful to: facility safety technicians and engineers; EH&S professionals; designers; consultants; contractors; project managers; fire departments; corporate risk managers; process engineers; manufacturers; equipment suppliers; research laboratories; code officials; insurers; HazMat specialists.
