When it comes time for your business to choose industrial flame and gas systems, many factors come into play. Along with a system’s accuracy and reliability, it must also stand up to adverse work conditions, be able to send real-time data to engineers and safety personnel, and fit into a company’s budget. Whether the systems are used on a pipeline in the wilderness, a refinery within an industrial park, or other manufacturing environments, choosing the best one for your needs can make all the difference in keeping everyone safe. If your facility is in need of industrial flame detectors, here are some reasons why you need a catalytic bead sensor.
If your company’s budget is tight but you still want flame sensors that are known for accuracy and reliability, catalytic bead sensors are a smart choice. Easy to purchase and install almost anywhere, these sensors have been on the market for many years, and have a reputation for working well in many different work environments.
To make sure a company’s industrial flame monitoring system works as well as possible, the sensors will need to be easy to calibrate. In doing so, supervisors and maintenance personnel can be sure the sensors are working properly and sending the correct information to management and safety engineers. In this regard, catalytic bead sensors perform quite well. However, it’s important to note that these sensors do need to be monitored on a regular basis to ensure they are properly calibrated, so make sure you will have enough personnel who will able to do this each day.
While these industrial fire detectors are capable of working in many types of environments, it’s a good idea to evaluate your work area conditions before you make your final decision. In some situations, catalytic bead sensors may be prone to over-saturation in facilities that may have extremely high levels of gases. Therefore, if your work environment may have this type of environment, carefully evaluate these sensors. In most cases they will work fine, and because they are known for reliability as well as being relatively inexpensive, they are usually viewed as a smart investment for most companies.
Since these sensors have been on the market for many years and are known for their reliability, they are easy to maintain. By having low maintenance costs, catalytic bead sensors allow maintenance personnel to concentrate on other aspects of a facility, which results in additional cost-effectiveness. By having technicians and supervisors trained in how to calibrate and maintain these systems, they will more than pay for themselves in a short period of time, and will also keep a work area extremely safe.
While technological advances have been made in many types of flame monitors, catalytic bead sensors have maintained their place as some of the most accurate and reliable sensors in use today.
