Hydrogen Fluoride Gas Detection
Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a corrosive, colorless gas that turns into hydrofluoric acid when dissolved in water. HF is frequently used in the manufacturing of gasoline, refrigerants, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, and various other industrial applications. Inhalation causes moderate to severe health effects including irritation of the eyes, nose, and respiratory tract. Skin contact is also dangerous and may result in a rash or burns. Exposure can even be fatal in severe cases.
