N.I.R.A. LEL monitoring systems track solvent concentration and control hot air recirculation.
N.I.R.A. LEL Monitoring System
(Solvent concentration monitoring)
The flammability of solvents and high temperatures inside the dryer or exhaust of any laminating, flexo, or rotogravure printing machine creates the risk of dangerous explosions. In order to avoid this risk, the solvent concentration must be checked by an LEL monitoring system and this concentration must be kept below 50 percent of the solvent's Lower Explosive Limit or LEL (UNI EN 1539). A LEL monitoring system is an analytical system able to check and control solvent concentration inside the drying stations during any printing or laminating process.
