Carbon Dioxide Sensing

Reliable gas monitors for measuring CO2

Carbon Dioxide is a colourless and odourless gas, vital to life on Earth. Although difficult to detect, our range of carbon dioxide sensing solutions allow CO2 to be strongly absorbed thanks to our non-dispersive infrared technology.

Carbon dioxide is mostly nontoxic, unless concentrations become elevated. CO2 can be used to freeze food, carbonate beverages, extinguish fires, and has various uses in agricultural and medical applications. Excessive carbon dioxide emissions cause ocean acidification, making it one of the primary climate change contributors.

Common Applications for Carbon Dioxide Sensing

Our carbon dioxide sensors can be used in a number of industries:

  • Agriculture
  • Landfill
  • Total Organic Carbon (TOC)
  • Biogas
  • Mining
  • Process Control
  • HVAC
  • Horticulture
  • Modified Atmosphere Packaging
  • Controlled Atmosphere Packaging

Have a look at a recent article on creating gaseous micro environments for packaging produce, and learn how our CO2 sensors can be used for this and many other applications.
