Ammonia Gas Detection

Ammonia (NH3) is among the most applied industrial chemicals in the United States. However, the corrosive properties that make it useful to a variety of applications also make it a threat to workers. That’s why RC Systems is dedicated to keeping your workers safe with single point and dual sensor ammonia detection systems for industrial settings.

Ammonia Detection Systems & Sensors


Ammonia Gas Detectors

Single point ammonia gas detectors monitor ammonia levels within a facility to pinpoint the source of an ammonia leak. We offer a variety of configurations to meet the needs of any industrial application. Our models are suitable for a range of classes and divisions with various programmable options, displays, and security mode.

RC Systems also offers Dual ammonia gas detectors in certain models and that are highly configurable to meet your necessary specifications.

Ammonia Spare Sensors

We stock spare ammonia sensors to ensure your ammonia gas detectors run as designed and without interruption. We offer a variety of sensor types, and ranges to meet your applications needs.

Ammonia Calibration Gases, Kits & Accessories

Ammonia calibration gases, kits, and accessories (including regulators and calibration adaptors) are used for bump testing and calibration on ammonia gas sensors. Regular testing is a critical component of any gas detector, and we supply the tools you need to keep your ammonia detection system operating at full capacity.

Comprehensive Ammonia Leak Detection for At-Risk Industries

Many industries use ammonia as a refrigerant in applications requiring large-scale refrigeration systems for day-day-day operations. Some of these industrial applications include, but are not limited to:
  • Petrochemical refining
  • Cold storage
  • Food processing
  • Metal treatment
  • Manufacturing
  • And many more.
As industrial ammonia is much more concentrated than the household cleaning supply, installing a dependable ammonia gas detection system in your facility is critical. We’ll work with you to determine the most effective location for your gas detection system.

Signs & Symptoms of Ammonia Leaks

Ammonia gas is colorless and has a pungent, suffocating odor. Low-level exposure for extended periods can lead to olfactory fatigue and adaptation, making individuals less likely to remove themselves from the area despite the strong scent. Other symptoms of ammonia gas inhalation include:
  • Coughing
  • Burning of the nose, throat, and respiratory tract
  • Airway irritation or destruction
  • Bronchiolar and alveolar edema
  • Respiratory distress or failure
Due to ammonia’s corrosive nature, it’s important to take extensive safety measures. In addition to installing ammonia gas detection systems, wear protective coverings, face guards, and other appropriate personal protective equipment. When ammonia exposure occurs, contact a health professional immediately.
