HYDROGEN SULFIDE DETECTION BADGES
– HYDROGEN SULFIDE CHEMICAL DETECTION DEVICES
DETECT HYDROGEN SULFIDE ON THE JOB SITE
Hydrogen sulfide is a colorless gas with a strong odor resembling rotten eggs. Emitted as a byproduct from many industrial processes, hydrogen sulfide is a widely spread pollutant. Continuous exposure to low concentrations generally causes irritation to the mucous membranes. It may also cause headaches and dizziness. At 100–150 ppm the olfactory nerve is paralyzed after a few inhalations, and the sense of smell disappears, often together with awareness of danger.
SafeAir Hydrogen Sulfide badges are simple, cost-effective, industry-proven solutions for hydrogen sulfide detection in the workplace. They use colorimetric technology (i.e. color change) to provide immediate indication when hydrogen sulfide gas is present. No need for lab analysis or electronic reader.
– PRODUCT DETAILS
SafeAir Hydrogen Sulfide Badge (Part#: 382015)
SafeAir Hydrogen Sulfide badges provide an immediate visual indication of exposure to hydrogen sulfide. When hydrogen sulfide gas is present, the exclamation mark in the triangular window changes color. The intensity of the color change is proportional to the exposure dose. The SafeAir Hydrogen Sulfide badge is a simple, cost-effective solution for hydrogen sulfide detection in the workplace.

– Frequently Asked Questions –
Where is hydrogen sulfide used?
Hydrogen sulfide is a widely spread pollutant. It is emitted as a byproduct in many industries such as oil refineries, production of sulfuric acid, leather, gelatin, artificial silk and sugar. As a product of normal biodegradation of bioproducts, hydrogen sulfide is spread from waste water treatment locations.
What are the health effects of hydrogen sulfide exposure?
Continuous exposure to low concentrations causes irritation to the mucous membranes, headaches and dizziness. High concentrations can result in respiratory arrest leading to unconsciousness or even death. Continuous inhalation of hydrogen sulfide may cause loss of the sense of smell which makes the detection of its presence by odor ineffective.
What are the exposure limits for hydrogen sulfide?
OSHA PEL (permissible exposure limit) for hydrogen sulfide is 20 ppm (TWA). NIOSH REL (recommended exposure limit) for hydrogen sulfide is 10 ppm (TWA).
How does a hydrogen sulfide badge change color?
A color-forming reaction occurs when hydrogen sulfide reacts with the proprietary indicator layer in the SafeAir badge.
