Tanks and Manholes

Manholes, stormwater pits and raw water tanks at sewage treatment plants can easily cause oxygen deficiency and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) poisoning from decomposing organic matter.

There is a high possibility of encountering drowning accidents that workers faint and fall into the confined spaces as a consequence of one breath of oxygen lacked air or highly concentrated hydrogen sulfide (H2S).

Sewers

Sediment in sewers contain many kinds of components such as sulfuric acid and sodium sulfide from treatment plants as well as amino acids from food processing plants.

It is easy for sulfuric acid and sodium sulfide to produce hydrogen sulfide (H2S). In addition, the characteristic of these gases to breath oxygen in air also induces an oxygen deficiency.

Ballast Tanks and Cargo Tanks in Ships

Ballast tanks take in and expel water to maintain a ship's balance. The steel plating on the walls inside become oxidized with surprising speed.

In the cargo tanks, massive amounts of oxygen are consumed by processes such as the respiration activity    of fruits and grains or vaporizing dry ice used for the refrigeration.

Garbage Disposal Facilities

The incinerator ash contains sulfides produced when the sulfurous compounds inside garbage are incinerated. These sulfides become sources to generate hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and to decrease in oxygen (O2) levels in air.
