Carbon monoxide dangers

Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that kills without warning.

Internal Combustion Engines create Carbon Monoxide through incomplete combustion of

gasoline, diesel, or propane fuels. CO concentrations can and often exceed OSHA

Permissible Exposure Limits but are not monitored and therefore lead to serious injury and death.


SAM monitors CO concentrations, alerts the operator, and shuts down

the application prior to a medical emergency.
