Hydrogen Gas Detector Applications in Battery Charging Stations

Thanks to the Industrial Hydrogen Gas Detectors, industrial battery charging chambers, if the hydrogen gas at the fork lift charging stations reach the explosion threshold level, or if it reaches the dangerous levels for human health, the ventilation is carried out automatically and the polluted air is discharged and the ambient air quality is maintained at high levels.

Hydrogen Gas and Its Effects

Hydrogen gas is a flammable and explosive gas. At the same time, the presence of a suffocating environment makes breathing difficult. Because hydrogen gas is a colorless and odorless gas, it cannot be detected by human sensory organs. Being lighter than airdue to accumulation at the highest point of the room.

Explosion Risk in Battery Charge Rooms

Lead acid industrial batteries release Hydrogen gas in case of 80% charge. For this reason, the battery charging chambers are of vital importance.Hydrogen gas is released when the batteries are being charged in the battery charging rooms. The rate of hydrogen in the explosion limit air is in the range of 4.1% to 72%. For this reason, thanks to the ventilation system in the battery charging chambers, the appropriate amount of fresh air must be changed in the ambient air.To minimize the risk of explosion, the hydrogen content in the air should be below 1%.

Hydrogen Gas Detector ApplicationsHydrogen Gas Detector + Ventilation System Application

Hydrogen gas detectors can be applied in many different ways.In the simplest form, our application on the right side ensures that the ambient hydrogen level is continuously low while the air quality is kept constantly high by running the aspirator or the ventilation system if the H2 gas density exceeds the pre-set coincidence.

Hydrogen Gas Detector + Ventilation System + Voice & Light Warning System Application

Hydrogen gas detectors can control different devices or send signals to different systems with 2 and 3 different relay outputs that can react at different gas levels.As can be seen from the principle scheme on the left, for example, a Hydrogen Gas Detector with 2 relays outputs the 1st gas threshold level ventilation system and prevents the hydrogen concentration of the medium from reaching the explosive threshold levels.However, due to inadequate ventilation, if the ambient hydrogen gas level exceeds the 1st level and reaches the dangerous level of explosive threshold level 2, it is ensured that the emergency officers are informed about the situation by activating the sirens which provide audible and light warning.

Hydrogen Gas Detector + Ventilation System + Voice & Light Warning + Telephone Notification

Hydrogen gas detectors can control different devices or send signals to different systems with 2 and 3 different relay outputs that can react at different gas levels.As can be seen from the principle scheme on the right, a Hydrogen Gas Detector with 3 relays outputs the 1st gas threshold level ventilation system and prevents the hydrogen concentration of the medium to reach the explosive threshold levels.However, due to inadequate ventilation, if the ambient hydrogen gas level exceeds the 1st level and reaches the dangerous level of explosive threshold level 2, it is ensured that the emergency officers are informed about the situation by activating the sirens which provide audible and light warning.A PSTN landline dialing module or GSM telephone dialing module can be sent to remote persons via a PSTN landline call in case the officers cannot hear the sirens.

Hydrogen Gas Detector + Ventilation System + Fire Alarm Integration Application

Hydrogen gas detectors can control different devices or send signals to different systems with 2 and 3 different relay outputs that can react at different gas levels.As can be seen from the principle diagram on the left side, a Hydrogen Gas Detector with 3 relays outputs the 1st gas threshold level ventilation system and prevents the hydrogen concentration of the medium to reach the explosive threshold levels.However, due to inadequate ventilation, if the ambient hydrogen gas level exceeds the 1st level and reaches the dangerous level of explosive threshold level 2, it is ensured that the emergency officers are informed about the situation by activating the sirens which provide audible and light warning.The battery charging station is close to a central fire alarm system and you can integrate your gas alarm system into a fire alarm system. With the NO / NC dry contact outputs on the detector, your gas alarm system can be connected to all conventional fire, robbery alarm system and other automation systems.
