HydroFluoric Acid Detection

HF is a very reactive acid involved in applications as diverse as drinking water fluoridation, alkalization of hydrocarbons in oil refineries, is a byproduct of phosphate fertilizer production, and in the manufacturing of aluminum. 

Traditional electrochemical gas detector for HF require frequent maintenance, calibration and sensor changes, which requires workers to risk potential exposure to HF.

Spartan’s Senscient ELDS HF detector is suited for industrial applications, with a temperature range from -55C to +66c. This open path detector is more sensitive to HF, provides a greater change of detecting leaks, does not require periodic maintenance, and self-tests every 24 hours. 

This Open Path Gas Detector (OPGD) is specific to hydrogen fluoride (HF). The separate transmitter and receiver assemblies are certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and can detect HF over distances of 5 to 120 meters.
