  • Gas-Detection standards included in NFPA 72: 2010

    NFPA 72: 2010, a standard that must be complied with in many areas around the globe, now includes revised standards for gas detectors used in executive actions, such as initiating automatic or manual protective procedures. Det-Tronics’ EQP System (including gas detection) is the first to achieve third-party certification to NFPA 72: 2010 as certified by FM Approvals, the nationally ...

  • Importance of IP66/67 Rating

    When used in harsh outdoor conditions, devices that promote life safety and continuous operations should have an ingress protection IP66/67 rating. Gas detectors should have such a rating — especially for onshore and offshore applications in the petrochemical, oil and gas industry. An IP66 or IP67 rating is achieved as a result of robust design that protects the gas detector against dust ...

  • New Gas Generator to check personal Gas Detectors

    Personnel working in chemical plants protect themselves with personal gas detectors from gas exposure. Gas leaks are very unlikely to occur, so the gas detector will always display „0“. An instrument displaying zero can do so for two reasons: a) The concentration is zero. b) The instrument is defective. For good reasons a daily check of the instrument is mandatory. It would ...

  • Do You Know the Importance of bump testing & calibration?

    Gas detection technology has developed rapidly, bringing with it the introduction of “maintenance free” gas detectors. As a result, gas detection users have become more reliant on the sensor lasting longer, assuming that the gas detector will work properly without routine calibration. However, this isn’t the case ...

  • Offshore safety requirements for toxic gas detection

    The American Petroleum Institute, the governing body of offshore safety, requires all toxic gas detection devices to conform to the standard ISA92.0.01. As you design and update safety plans to protect offshore personnel, consider that requirement and the standard. The Det-Tronics NTMOS hydrogen sulfide gas detector meets ISA92.0.01 and exceeds the ...

  • Will your gas detector really save lives?

    No matter how basic or technologically advanced your gas detector or monitor, how do you know it is working correctly? How do you know it will save lives? The only way to eliminate doubt is to regularly calibrate gas detection monitors and to check the general functioning of alarms. Manufacturers make recommendations regarding calibration but it could be argued that, in the case of personal and ...

  • Benefits of HART-enabled detectors

    The open HART protocol improves the flow of diagnostic information from process instruments including optical flame detectors and combustible/toxic gas detectors. User benefits of Det-Tronics HART-enabled flame detectors and gas detectors include faster commissioning and enhanced maintenance efficiency. Typical flame and/or gas detector configuration options accessible via HART communications ...

  • Addressable Gas Detection Leads to Large Cable Savings

    SINGLE CABLE SOLUTIONS FOR GAS DETECTION Cabling Costs and Space Issues Why is it that in today’s digital age many Gas Detection Systems still need to be installed with individual analogue loops from control to sensor, each requiring a separate 3 or 4 core cable connection. As you increase the size of a Gas Detection System so the corresponding loops increase by that factor of 3 or 4. ...

  • New gas detector can `see` ethanol

    A new gas detector that reacts to toxic or explosive concentrations of ethanol has been developed by Sensor Electronics of Minneapolis. Like gasoline, ethanol is extremely volatile and explosive. It’s also toxic: In high concentrations it displaces oxygen, leading to asphyxiation and possible death. This new infrared gas detector “sees” even minute traces of ethanol, making it ideal for ...
