Agriculture is a cornerstone of our world, sustaining us with livestock, fish, and crops. In the face of a growing global population, the farming industry has embraced smarter, safer, and more environmentally friendly approaches to meet the demands.
At Analox, our array of gas analyzers and detection systems significantly contributes to advancing process analysis and ensuring site and staff safety. Amid this evolving landscape, indoor farming stands out as a beacon of innovation and sustainability. As we delve into various sectors, we see how gas analyzers play a pivotal role.
Livestock farming is the biggest contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). On average, one cow produces around 300 liters of methane (CH4) per week. One way we can protect the environment and make pastoral farming less damaging is through nutritional and genetic research. Analyzers can be utilized to measure the levels of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) being expelled from the animal’s digestive system.
Horticulture, responsible for providing delicious crops like tomatoes and peppers, has now expanded its horizons to encompass medicinal resources like cannabis. Cannabis-derived pharmaceuticals and CBD oil hold the potential to alleviate conditions such as cancer, arthritis, anxiety, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and chronic pain. Horticulture relies on carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment, elevating CO2 levels to expedite photosynthesis and bolster crop growth, thereby enhancing both yield and profitability.
It is critical to know when the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels reach the optimal amount but it is also important to ensure they reduce to a safe level before staff enter the greenhouse to tend to the crops. Installing a carbon dioxide (CO2) monitor protects your team from this toxic gas.
Aquaculture, or fish farming is the control and monitoring of dissolved oxygen (O2) in the harvesting of fish such as shrimp, carp, trout and salmon. This oxygen (O2) enrichment is vital to maintain the health and productivity of the stock. However, a leak of enriched oxygen is a potential fire hazard and there is also a medical risk of hypoxia if someone were to be exposed to high levels of oxygen. It is important to monitor the areas the oxygen (O2) is being used and stored to protect your site and staff.
Whatever your application, Analox can offer the solution for you.
Gas Safety Monitoring in Agriculture
Experience unmatched gas detection, precision and safety with the Analox Ax60+ Cultivate – Your ultimate solution for reliable monitoring in agricultural environments.
If you need a simple, ready to install and cost-effective gas safety monitor – we’ve got you covered.
The Ax60+ is easy to install and already programmed for your local regulations.
The DOM can be retro fitted to any existing Ax60+ installations and provides real-time monitoring of the Ax60+ and communicates with customers remote systems such as a Building Management System (BMS).
A portable, personal safety monitor for both carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment and oxygen (O2) enrichment and depletion.
A single point wall mountable safety monitor for oxygen (O2) depletion. This uses a partial pressure oxygen (O2) sensor so it is not cross sensitive to helium (He) ingress.
