In oil refineries, manufacturing plants, or at offshore drilling stations and natural gas pipelines, fires and explosions are always a constant threat. Because of this, sophisticated detection systems are often installed in an effort to keep employees and property safe from a catastrophic situation. To ensure the highest levels of safety are always in place, natural gas monitoring systems are used to constantly monitor key areas where natural gas leaks may occur, such as near pipelines, equipment, and in areas where various chemicals may be stored. But to make sure maximum protection is available 24/7, it is vital to know the best ways to set up a monitoring system.
