Process engineers at a Rocky Mountain-based refinery needed a way to detect an accidental release of hydrogen fluoride (HF) gas, a highly toxic substance that can form dense – and mobile – vapor clouds that cause deep, severe burns and damage the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and respiratory system.

To help the refinery solve its HF gas detection concerns, the process engineers contacted MSA Safety to test, and later implement, Senscient™ ELDS technology, which provides a maximum level of protection with the highest service uptime availability and no maintenance required.
