Using Industrial Gases in Food Processing Calls for Effective Safety Solutions

In food processing today, industrial gases – such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, chlorine and ozone – are essential for freezing, cooling, carbonating and sterilization. Yet these gases can pose hazards to both workers and facilities.

Reliable monitoring of toxic, flammable and explosive gases is essential throughout food processing plants, as are breathing and personal protective equipment, and escape and rescue equipment in case of emergencies.

Dräger can help you create a safe working environment in a number of ways. Our stationary gas detection systems guard against explosion, toxicity, and insufficient oxygen levels by triggering alarms. Mobile gas detectors protect workers in confined spaces. Breathing protection and personal protective equipment protect workers from contact with contaminated atmospheres and hazardous fluids. And our escape and rescue equipment protects lives in case of emergencies.

As a leader in gas detection and respiratory protective equipment, Dräger can work with you to find the optimal solution for your food processing operation.
