Gas and flame detection systems play a major role in the prevention of damage to property in industrial buildings, production sites, pipelines, storage facilities, warehouses or laboratories.
The choice of detection technology, positioning and quantity of detectors, routine maintenance and outcomes of the entire gas detection system are all important.
Fixed detectors are mounted in place where there is a constant threat of gas release. When threats are detected early enough, an alarm alerts people to make their escape, or where the release is explosive, to automatically switch off ignition sources.
Other countermeasures may include the sounding of alarms, activating the ventilation system or the isolation of the process by automatically shutting off valves.
To be able to specify the right detector, there are many considerations: type of gases, detection range, hazardous zone, and application conditions.
Area monitors tend to be deployed during a temporary or short-term project. They provide benefits like those of a fixed gas detection system, however, they can be transported and repositioned to suit the conditions of the area.
