Stench Gas® is designed to be a First Line in Defense of underground personnel.

It is the most reliable and widely used Mine Warning Device on the market today.

What is Stench Gas®?

Ethyl Mercaptan (Ethanethiol) a colorless organic liquid C2H5SH that has a strong odor and is added to odorless gas’s for fuel as a warning agent. In mining we use it in the same manner, it is the only reliable way of alerting underground personnel as to a problem within the Mine. Ethyl Mercaptan can be detected by humans at approximate 0.6 parts per billion.

With the make-up of our cylinders, the product that comes out is non-flammable and can be injected before or after heater house.

The end result is a definitive warning to let all workers underground know of an emergency, and safety pre-cautions that need to be taken.

Anti-Stench

Wintergreen
