They deliver early warning with continuous monitoring to conserve environment, property, and worker lives. They're designed for refineries, tank farms, pipeline maintenance, drilling platforms, barges, marine ports, or chemical/oil/gas terminals.
Designs provide a unit where the combustible compounds are continuously monitored with proven electronics. Upon detection of a volatile organic compound - appropriate actions are immediately taken - without need for operator involvement.
Shutdowns are immediate as the system senses dangerous levels in real time - before runaway engine can occur. A worker is notified by constant area monitoring and will not be exposed to high LEL concentrations, it's noted.
With this design, an engine does not need to be running to be continually monitored. In the event of volatile organic gas reading in the area, the system will still notify workers, via alarms, then disable a unit from starting.
Alarm outputs are easily interfaced with typical GPS units which in turn issue location.
These systems help minimize vapor hazards associated with engine over-rev and source of spark.
Various models are offered to monitor and shutdown any motorized equipment including off-road vehicles, diesel/gas powered welders, generators, construction equipment.
