Ammonia is a strong, colorless gas. Ammonia poisoning may occur if one inhales significant amounts of ammonia. When ammonia enters the body, it reacts with water in the body to produce ammonium hydroxide. The corrosive ammonium hydroxide can damage body cells. High levels of ammonia can seriously damage the skin, eyes and respiratory system.
The ammonia sensor carried by Sensor eStore is based on electrochemical technology. The detection level ranges 0 – 1000 ppm. The operation of electrochemical gas sensors is based on detection of ammonia gas at the active electrode, which in turn produces an electrical signal proportional to the ammonia concentration.
