CO Detector detects leaks and shuts off the appliances
Understanding the Danger of CO
FlowTech takes saftey seriously by developing sensors that far exceed the UL 2034 standards. For example, the UL standard when 30 PPM of CO is present an alarm will not sound until CO has built up for 30 days. FlowTech will activate an alarm after 2 hours of this level of CO.
|30 PPM||120 Minutes|
|50 PPM||60 - 90 Minutes|
|100 PPM||10 - 40 Minutes|
|300 PPM||3 Minutes|
For healthy adults CO becomes toxic when it reaches a level higher than 35 PPM (Parts Per Million) with continuous exposure over an eight hour period. When the level of CO becomes higher than that a person will suffer from symptoms of exposure.
OSHA guidelines state that the maximum exposure over an eight hour time period is 35 PPM
Mild Exposure: 2-3 hours @ 35 PPM — 200 PPM will produce flu-like symptoms such as headaches, sore eyes and a runny nose.
Medium Exposure: 1 hour @ 200 PPM — 800ppm will produce dizziness, drowsiness and vomiting. This level of exposure is deemed to be life threatening once three hours has passed.
Extreme Exposure: In a few minutes @ 800 PPM and higher will result in unconsciousness, brain damage and death.
NOTE: As point of reference, the CO produced by a car, in a closed garage, is approximately 300 PPM.
