Fixed Gas Detection
Fixed gas detection systems provide permanent monitoring of hazardous gases for personnel and plant safety. Systems are engineered for the client’s requirements, following a brief which is agreed with our technical sales department. A full assessment will be conducted by one of our specialists, designed to embrace the types of gases, geographical location, type of work and integration requirements. Broad ranges of sensing heads are available for common gases such as Flammable Hydrocarbons, Oxygen, Hydrogen Sulphide, and Carbon Monoxide or for a whole spectrum of rarer gases such as Chlorine and Sulphur Dioxide. Power is supplied to the detector heads and the detected gas levels from them to the control panel by shielded cabling. A control panel will process multiple detector head information centrally and feed to an alarm – this may be integrated with a sites security or fire detection system.
Detector head location is key to the success of an installation – where our experienced assessors will take into account gas densities, location of potential gas releases or build- up, prevailing wind direction, location of personnel and the plant processes.
Installations are carried out by fully qualified electricians, and to the requirements of the ATEX Directive. A technical file is provided with each installation detailing the specification, use, traceability and maintenance requirements.
Ongoing inspection, calibration and maintenance programmes are available from our field service department, to ensure that your system is kept at optimum safety and efficiency.
Fixed gas detection provides a permanent control and ensures adequate warning is provided to both operators and the work environment, and is a valuable asset to ensure safe operation of any site with hazardous gases.
