Gas Detection – A Whole New Control Experience.
Gas leaks are a constant threat for industrial plants, their employees and people living nearby. Worldwide incidents, involving asphyxiation or explosions are a constant reminder of this problem.
When fast and informed decisions make the difference between life and death, you need full control of your gas detection system. It’s easier than ever to ensure safety and compliance, while also reducing setup and operation time and minimizing the need for training.
With Honeywell’s industrial gas detectors, you never have to trade off on the flexibility or reliability of your control system, making the best decisions at a glance.
Safety failings lead to tragic consequences. In gas detection, every second counts and choosing the right gas detection solution is a key challenge for safety professionals who can’t afford to get it wrong.
Today, Honeywell’s gas leak detectors have evolved to meet the requirements of diverse industries and applications, delivering comprehensive solutions designed to drive down the cost of gas detection, while providing enhanced safety and peace of mind. Detect gas leaks as they happen and make fast and informed decisions in case of any gas leak emergency.
There are many choices in the market today. No matter your situation, there are options available to ensure your workers and property stay safe. We’re here to help you find the best solution for your application.
Main Reasons of Gas Leakage
- Material defects of production equipment or containers.
- The sealing ring and ring are not tightly sealed.
- The welding place of the container is subject to long-term electrochemical corrosion.
- Human negligence, etc.
Gas Detector Tips
- Use filters as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Test the pump if your meter has one.
- Don’t expose LEL sensor to poisons.
- Only fresh air cal in fresh air.
- Calibrate regularly.
- Bump test before each use.
- Don’t use expired gas.
- Replace sensors before they fail.
- Take a systems approach.
- Use your meter for what it was designed to do.
Why is a gas detector necessary?
In the industrial production process, the leakage of flammable, toxic and harmful gases often occurs, which will cause serious threats to personnel, equipment, production, and life.
The leaked flammable gas or toxic gas is quickly diluted by air, so the location of the leak is difficult to find, and it is even more difficult to quantitatively analyze it.
After a period of time, these gases will accumulate in some areas or at certain blind spots. When the content of flammable gas in the air reaches a certain value, it is very easy to burn or explode when encountering an open flame. If this very dangerous hidden danger cannot be discovered in time, it will cause great loss to personal safety and property.
To predict this potential hazard, you can install a larger number of gas detectors in production areas with potential leakage hazards, and they can continuously measure whether the combustible gas in the air around the device reaches the combustion or explosive concentration.
Firefighting and Industrial Hazards Training
Williams Fire & Hazard Control will once again be hosting its XTREME Industrial Fire & Hazard Training School. This course has been designed to offer a comprehensive hands-on learning experience from the Williams’ rapid response team, who have fought more than 200 of the industry’s most threatening flammable liquid fires.
The training was designed to provide a practical and extensive learning experience for those involved in operational firefighting operations in land, oil, gas and gas facilities. This course is also intended for emergency responders and HSE managers. Participants will study the latest technologies and fire behaviors using real case studies and will be able to tackle real pressure fires, hydrocarbons and raised tanks.
The entire practical course, which includes exercises with real fires, is planned for those directly involved in an operational role such as firefighters and municipal fire-fighting services. The theoretical part can be very useful for engineers, who set specifications, security consultants, in-house security specialists, fire chiefs and CEOs.
