Availability-Reliability Studies Services
Fire and Gas Detection Availability reviews detail the reliability and time available of Fire and Gas detector devices, ensuring the system complies with the Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
Availability data from the fire and gas detection system is collated and sent to Micropack Engineering for analysis. The raw data files will contain data for each detector and this will show the number of instances each detector was not operational or the total time the detector was unavailable due to being inhibited etc. Data will be collated together and summed for every detector in the system, thereby giving a total unavailable time for each detector during the period of the study. The unavailable time is then compared with the total time available and expressed as a percentage (of availability). MICROPACK currently carry out this service for some of the worlds largest oil and gas operators, ensuring their F&G systems are optimised and well maintained, and subsequently, properly protecting personnel and plant.
