GAS DETECTION SYSTEM
     

Virtually, gases and vapours are always dangerous! If gases do not exist in their familiar and respirable atmospheric composition, safe breathing might already be affected. Moreover: Any gas is potentially dangerous, being liquefied, compressed or in normal state-essential is only their concentration.

Basically there are three categories of risk

  • Ex- Risk of explosion by flammable gases
  • Ox- Oxygen
  • Risk of asphyxiation by oxygen displacement
  • Risk of increase of flammability by oxygen enrichment
  • Tox- Risk of poisoning by toxic gases

Without auxiliary tools humans are not able to recognize these dangers early enough to initiate appropriate counter measures. With only some exceptions our nose has turned out to be an extremely unreliable warning instrument

For. Example, hydrogen sulfide in low concentrations is sensible by its typical odor of rotten eggs, but lethal high concentrations of .hydrogen sulfide are not detectable by our nose. Escaping in to areas assumed to be non-dangerous because of the missing smell has already caused a lot of fatal accidents.

Even harmless gases such as argon, helium or nitrogen may become dangerous when the vitally important oxygen is displaced by a sudden release. Danger of suffocation!

Oxygen concentrations of less than 6 Vol% are known to be lethal. Oxygen in excess (more than 21 Vol%) increase the danger of flammability and might even cause auto-ignition of flammable material. Not only can flammable gases and vapours cause considerable plant damages by ignition, also human life is compromised.

GAS DETECTION SYSTEM IN INDUSTRIES:

In a first approach gas detection are products of safety technology and are used preferably to protect workers and to ensure plant safety. Gas detection systems are dedicated to detect dangerous gas concentrations, to trigger alarms and –as far as possible – to activate counter measure, before it can come to a hazardous situation for employees, assets and environment

Gas detection instruments may be portable (or semi portable) gas measuring instruments or fixed installed gas detection systems. The safety of an area potentially being affected by dangerous gases and vapours to a high degree depends on the reliability of the gas detection systems and especially on the quality of the sensors being used. In opposite to sensors of portable devices fixed installed sensors including their electronics are continuously in operation year for year for 24 hours a day- just to be available for the instance of a random gas release. And this even under extreme environmental conditions at e.g. -50ᵒC or + 65ᵒC, at high relative humidity or even very dry atmospheres, in outdoor applications with rain, storm and snow or hot desert conditions.

Protection must not be an issue and measuring performance shall only be affected insignificantly. There are certain gas detection transmitters having so excellent measuring performances characteristics that today they even show up more and more as analyzing instruments in the field of process instrumentation.

Applications:

It is essential to detect Ex-Ox-Tox dangers reliably and to protect human life, assets and environment by means of appropriate measures.

This is what gas detection systems are required for
