Our gas inspection services for containers.
Entering freight containers represents a significant hazard to staff responsible for inspection, devanning, stuffing or destuffing because of the large number of airborne chemicals that can be present. Research has found hazardous levels of gases and vapours in around 20 percent of all containers and this level of contamination is now accepted as common place.
Therefore it is necessary to examine containers before entering the containers. This is usually conducted with a wide variety of gas detection techniques and equipment in order to be able to assess substances of greatest concern.
Containers travel for extended periods of time at varying temperatures. So it’s not surprising that unsafe levels of gases should accumulate in the confined space of a container.
