Installation of a Gas & Flame Detection System for the Natural Gas Industry

A customer in the natural gas industry needed a system that could detect methane gas as well as flames in a natural gas extraction plant.

The system would operate in a Class 1, Div. 1 environment, and had to be designed to detect gas and fires such as hydrocarbon-based fuel and gas fires, as well as hydroxyl, hydrogen, metal, and inorganic fires. The system included a methane (CH4) gas, and a UV/IR flame detection system, which utilizes advanced infrared sensor technology, and FM certified, FM, and SIL 2 performance approved LEL detectors and transmitters. Other features include an IR sensor wavelength of 2.5 to 3.0 μm, with the ability to simultaneously detect radiant energy in both the UV and IR sensors.

We not only built the system, we also maintain it, to sustain peak performance a system such as this must be calibrated biannually. At IPC we are a complete one source solution, providing design, assembly, installation, and maintenance. To learn more about this project, see the table below or contact us directly.
