H2S Removal – Problem and Solutions

Hydrogen sulfide

Hydrogen Sulphide also is known as H2S and is a colourless gas that produces a foul-smelling odour similar to rotten eggs.

It is extremely poisonous, corrosive and flammable.

Hydrogen Sulphide results from the microbial breakdown of organic matter this can include human and animal waste, sludge storage tanks, sewers and associated pipelines.

H2S is heavier than air and can often fill a building from the ground up. The mixture of H2S air is explosive and burns with a blue flame.

Consequences of Corrosion

Effects of H2S on Copper

Hydrogen Sulphide forms acidic gases that are very corrosive to most metals. Copper is particularly susceptible to attack resulting in damage to costly electronics and electrical components.

H2S sewer damage

Hydrogen Sulphide, when combined with water vapour, leads to the creation of Sulphuric Acid that attacks concrete in sewer lines causing severe degradation that can lead to sewer collapse and rapid system failure.

Symptoms of H2S Poisoning

H2S irritates the mucous membranes of the body of the respiratory tract, following short term exposure to low PPM levels ( 100 or less ) symptoms may include:

  • Headache
  • Sickness
  • Convulsions
  • Eye Irritation
  • Skin Irritation

At Higher concentrations ( 100 – 500 PPM ) serious damage to the central nervous system can occur as well as paralysation to the olfactory nerve and loss of breathing.

Concentrations higher than 500 PPM can cause a loss of

  • blood pressure
  • migraine
  • confusion
  • coma
  • brain and heart damage
  • death
