Nitrous Oxide Gas Detector

Nitrous Oxide





Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas has the chemical formula N2O. At room temperature it is a colourless gas with as slightly sweet smelling odour and taste. It is used in surgery and dentists as an aesthetic and analgesic.


This hazardous compound has an 8 hour workplace exposure limit of 100ppm and any workplace atmosphere should should be maintained as low as practicable below this. As with formaldehyde this can present difficulties, particularly where recalculating systems are used and man entry is required soon after. Nitrous oxide is also very difficult to monitor, so if you are looking for assistance please get in touch.
