PHOSGENE DETECTION BADGES

– PHOSGENE CHEMICAL DETECTION DEVICES

DETECT PHOSGENE ON THE JOB SITE

Phosgene is a colorless, highly toxic gas with an odor resembling moldy hay or newly cut grass.  It is used in industry as a precursor chemical to manufacture many everyday products, including various polymers and pharmaceuticals. Inhalation of phosgene may cause choking, coughing and painful breathing. Inhalation of high concentrations may cause delayed-onset severe pulmonary edema (abnormal fluid buildup in the lungs) or pneumonia.

SafeAir Phosgene badges are simple, cost-effective, industry-proven solutions for phosgene detection in the workplace.  They use colorimetric technology (i.e. color change) to provide immediate indication when phosgene is present.  No need for lab analysis or electronic reader.

– PRODUCT DETAILS

SafeAir Phosgene Badge (Part#: 382036)

SafeAir Phosgene badges provide an immediate visual indication of exposure to phosgene. When phosgene gas is present, the exclamation mark in the triangular window changes color. The intensity of the color change is proportional to the exposure dose.  To measure phosgene exposure dose, an optional color comparator is available for use with the badge.  SafeAir Phosgene badges are a simple, cost-effective solution for phosgene detection.

– Frequently Asked Questions –

FAQ

What do phosgene detection badges do?

Phosgene producers throughout the world require SafeAir phosgene badges for workers in chemical plants and phosgene production facilities. These badges indicate exposure to this deadly gas thereby ensuring employee safety. Morphix produces SafeAir phosgene badges in multiple languages to meet the global demand for these life-saving sensors.

A worker wears a SafeAir phosgene badge in their breathing zone (e.g. clipped to a shirt collar) in order to monitor for phosgene. The badge can also be used to monitor for phosgene leaks by hanging the badge near a suspect area. A change in color on the indicator badge, in the shape of an exclamation mark, alerts the user to exposure to phosgene. Morphix also offers SafeAir phosgene color comparators, which can be used to read exposure dose levels by matching the color on the phosgene badge to the color in the phosgene comparator. Morphix offers a variety of SafeAir phosgene detection badges to meet the various needs of industry.

Where is phosgene used?

Phosgene is used in industry as a precursor chemical to manufacture many everyday products. The most common use of phosgene is to create isocyanates, which in turn are used to create polyurethane foams for furniture, cars and other products. Phosgene is also a precursor to polycarbonate and a variety of pharmaceuticals.

What are the health effects of phosgene exposure?

Phosgene is a highly toxic gas. Because of its high toxicity, most phosgene is converted to another chemical and contained in a closed system to limit the chance of exposure. Inhalation of phosgene gas may cause choking, coughing, painful breathing, pneumonia, or severe delayed-onset pulmonary edema (abnormal fluid build-up in the lungs).

How is industry involved with phosgene safety?

Industry has shown a strong emphasis on the safe use of phosgene through organizations such as the International Isocyanate Institute (III) and the Phosgene Panel of the American Chemistry Council. Phosgene manufacturers promote safety in the production of phosgene and resulting isocyanates by sharing safety and health information. Effective phosgene detection is the cornerstone of phosgene safety. Most phosgene manufacturers have implemented a “global best practice” that all workers in a phosgene facility should wear a phosgene badge. Most phosgene-producing facilities worldwide utilize both large phosgene detectors for wide-area monitoring, and phosgene indicator badges for individual monitoring

What are the exposure limits for phosgene?

OSHA PEL (permissible exposure limit) for phosgene is 0.1 ppm (TWA). NIOSH IDLH (immediately dangerous to life or health) exposure limit for phosgene is 2 ppm.

How does a phosgene badge change color?

A color-forming reaction occurs when phosgene reacts with the proprietary indicator layer in the SafeAir badge.
