Hydrogen Fluoride

Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a highly dangerous colorless gas or liquid. Upon contact with tissue, hydrogen fluoride is highly corrosive and toxic which exposures can lead to severe or fatal consequences. In a gaseous state, HF is lighter than air. Conventional gas detection techniques lead to slow response times, short-life spans, cross interference and false alarms. Boreal’s line of products requires minimal maintenance, cannot be poisoned/fouled/inhibited, and has a low cost of ownership. Boreal is your solution for precision and accuracy for HF monitoring.
