Ideal Gases, Inc. is the premier manufacturer of calibration gas standards in portable cylinders. OEM Gas Detector Manufacturers are resellers. We at Ideal Gases actually make calibration gases. That’s why our prices are better than OEM’s and distributors.
- Ideal Calibration Gas Standards meet or exceed the most demanding industry specifications for OEM calibration gases.
- Ideal Calibration Gas Standards have a longer shelf life. That’s what the Ideal Cylinder patent pending process is all about. Which means you can keep a smaller inventory and save money, too.
- We know what you need. We are expert in both the manufacture of calibration gas standards and in the repair and maintenance of your gas detectors.
- Every calibration gas cylinder is individually manufactured. Standards don’t come in batches. That’s why we make them one at a time instead of bulk transfers like resellers.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death if inhaled. Many specialty gas experts consider it to be the single most common toxic gas exposure problem.
On their public website, OSHA declares that:
"Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous, colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. Although it has no detectable odor, CO is often mixed with other gases that do have an odor. So, you can inhale carbon monoxide right along with gases that you can smell and not even know that CO is present.
CO is a common industrial hazard resulting from the incomplete burning of natural gas and any other material containing carbon such as gasoline, kerosene, oil, propane, coal, or wood. Forges, blast furnaces and coke ovens produce CO, but one of the most common sources of exposure in the workplace is the internal combustion engine."
Carbon monoxide detectors and monitors are perhaps the most common gas detectors.
It's important to have an accurate carbon monoxide calibration gas standard to calibrate your detectors and monitors.
An Ideal Standard.
The following OSHA video show some of the potential dangers of carbon monoxide in the workplace and why it's so important to monitor for this dangerous gas.
