Understanding Gas Detection
Gas Detection is an inclusive term that refers to methods and instruments designed for the purpose of monitoring, detecting and indicating the presence of combustible gas, solvent vapor or toxic gas or vapor in areas where the presence of these hazardous materials pose explosion risk or toxic risk to both personnel and property.
The use of fixed gas detection instruments has been available for decades, evolving from primitive instruments used in mines to detect methane in air which posed explosion hazards to a multitude of instruments used today for the detection of combustible and toxic gases. Based on the end users’ specific application requirements and the target gas to be monitored, and the range of detection required by toxic and explosive gas detector devices, manufacturers create a variety of tools.
Gas Detection using fixed gas detection instruments typically will consist of an ambient gas detector, a transmitter and a controller, PLC or DCS used to annunciate an alarm condition. Gas Detection can utilize remote detectors, with transmitters and controllers located in other areas of the plant, or integral detectors, where the detector with sensor is attached directly to the transmitter and a local display can be read by personnel in the area.
Gas Detection has also evolved into Process Stream Monitors and Sample Draw Gas Detection Systems where some target gases can be monitored in process stream applications such as in biogas and natural gas distribution pipelines.
Due to the many solutions available today for Gas Detection it is important to discuss your specific requirements with a Fixed Gas Detection manufacturer, such as GDS Corp. Located in the Houston, Texas, area, where their years of instrument and control instrument experience can help you to select and use the appropriate Gas Detection System for your requirements, GDS is a company that offers detectors on a global scale.
