What is Hydrogen Flouride (HF) and why should it be measured?

Hydrogen fluoride is a highly dangerous, colorless gas or liquid and is the precursor to many important compounds including pharmaceuticals, fabric and fiber treating agents, polymers (e.g. Teflon) and herbicides. It is also used in the production of aluminum, in the petrochemical industry as a component of superacids and a has a number of other uses including stainless steel pickling, glass etching, quartz purification and more.

An accidental release of HF from an industrial facility could have severe consequences. HF is toxic to humas, flora and fauna. In it’s gaseous state, acute (short-term) inhalation exposure can cause severe respiratory damage, including severe irritation and pulmonary edema. The gas can also cause blindness by rapid destruction of the corneas. Upon contact with moisture, including tissue, hydrogen fluoride immediately converts to hydrofluoric acid, which is highly corrosive and toxic, and requires immediate medical attention upon exposure.

Correct monitoring of this harmful chemical is neccessary to avoid the unintential introduction of it into the environment which could result in the destruction of wildlife and the changing of ecosystems. Such a disaster would allow the chemical to pollute the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat.
