New trichloramine in the air measurement
What is the trichloramine in the air?
A strong smell of chlorine, itchy eyes … you are probably in the presence of trichloramine in the air.
As a reminder, trichloramine in the air, also called nitrogen trichloride, is a very volatile gas that is irritating to the respiratory tract, eyes and skin.
It is created during the chemical combination of chlorinated products used for the disinfection of water and the nitrogen pollution brought by swimmer’ organic matter (sweat, saliva, urine, bacteria, sunscreen …)
How detect and measure the trichloramine in the air?
To better protect swimmers and collaborators, a precise, fast and simple measurement is essential. This is why, for 10 years now, SYCLOPE Electronique and INRS have been working in partnership on the problem of measuring trichloramine in the air.
There are currently two types of measurement solutions:
- Measurements made by an accredited laboratory
- Portable measurement solutions
The result of many years of experience and refits, SYCLOPE Electronique and INRS have developed a new portable device allowing a direct measurement of trichloramine in the air.
In fact, the new equipment indicates, after a minimum of two hours of exposure, a rate in mg / m3.
The objective of this new equipment is to optimize the measurement of trichloramine in the air in order to better protect the users and the personnel on the swimming pool.
