The organisers of WWEM 2012, the Water Wastewater & Environmental Monitoring event (Telford, 7th – 8th November), has announced that this year’s show will again feature a Gas Detection Zone following the popularity of this section at the last WWEM in 2010.

The Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring (CoGDEM) is helping to organise the Gas Detection Zone which will focus on new technology and products to detect hazards such as exposure to low oxygen levels in confined spaces and to toxic and flammable gases in the workplace. CoGDEM’s Leigh Greenham commented, “This year there will be more stands featuring gas detection technology as well as hazardous area (Ex) products, in addition to a wider range of free workshops covering topics such as ‘bump testing versus calibration’, ‘confined space entry’, ‘VOC detection’ and much more.”

New gas detection techniques will be on show and the new ‘CoGDEM Guide to Gas Detection’ hardback book will be launched at the event. Many of the world’s leading gas detection experts’ products and services will be on display at the WWEM 2012 exhibition, including Air Products, BOC/Linde, Crowcon, Draeger, GMI, GfG, ISC, Infratec, Scientific & Technical Gases and Sira.

WWEM organiser Marcus Pattison commented, “With so much taking place during the two days, WWEM 2012 will be a hive of frenetic activity, but with free entry, free parking and free lunches and refreshments for pre-registered visitors, we have tried to remove as much of the stress, hassle and cost associated with other events.”
