MRI rooms in modern hospitals need Gas Detection to prevent potential injury to patients and staff. The powerful magnetic field created by using superconductors requires liquid Helium to keep the superconducting magnets cool. The large quantity of liquid helium required – if released by accident or damage would create an immediate oxygen depravation hazard in the MRI room and adjacent spaces.
Additional Gas Detection applications for hospitals include Refrigerant Monitoring for chiller rooms and other climate controls systems as well as Food Storage Rooms and Coolers. Leak Detection around fuel storage facilities for backup power generators.
Additionally, Gas Detection for Carbon Monoxide and Nitrous Dioxide should be located in belowground or enclosed parking garages and loading areas along with controls for monitoring and controlling ventilation.
