Fire and Gas Detection
Tank fires, while rare, represent a significant threat due to the amount of fuel each tank contains.

Tank fires, while rare, represent a significant threat due to the amount of fuel each tank contains.

Storage tank fires are often caused by static electricity from fuel being loaded or unloaded from the tank too quickly or from lightning strikes. In Alberta, lightning strike frequency can average one strike/square kilometer per year in many industrial areas. Fires often occur at the flexible seal between the floating roof and the side of the tank.

Fires often occur at the flexible seal between the floating roof and the side of the tank.

A flame detector is the ideal solution for this challenge as it is extremely false alarm resistant and has the ability to detect a small 1ft x 1ft fire from over 200 feet away. Traditional point detectors are not practical for covering large areas, fence line monitoring, or for monitoring gas leaks that are crossing from one area of the plant to another. Open path detectors such as Infrared Gas Detectors are uniquely suited for these applications. We offer open path solutions for mixed hydrocarbon gases or pure methane, toxic gases such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), ammonia, carbon dioxide (CO2), and hydrogen fluoride (HF) or combinations of toxic gases and hydrocarbons in the same detector.
