Hydrocarbon Gas Streams
The measurement of hydrogen sulfide is driven by two primary concerns - the lethal effect it can have on personnel and the embrittlement it can cause in transmission lines. At low levels, H2S can be detected by its rotten egg odor but, at higher levels, the senses can become desensitized and can often lead to death. The second concern, weakening of transmission lines, can cause a pipe to rupture sending large clouds of gasses into the atmosphere (contributing to the deprivation of oxygen) as well as potentially causing a massive explosion.
