Spectrex supplies Saudi power plant with SharpEye Optical Flame Detectors

06 August 2015

SharpEye Optical Flame Detectors will protect the four new 600MW oil and gas fired steam turbines at the Ghazlan Power Plant in Saudi Arabia, as well as the fuel handling infrastructure and transmission equipment. Ghazlan is the largest power generation facility in the Middle East and the 48th largest in the world.

Due to the immense size and the variety of  challenges on site, engineers selected a combination of the advanced IR3 SharpEye 40/40I and the UV/IR design SharpEye 40/40LB with the combined 4-20 mA and HART communication to allow remote setup, maintenance and diagnostics. The 150,000 hour MTBF and 5 year warranty were important factors in selecting Spectrex as this environment is tough on instruments.

Spectrex Inc. is a technology leader in optical Flame and Open Path Gas Detection (OPGD). Our patented optical UV/IR and IR3 Flame Detector designs, and pioneering patented Xenon Flash designs in OPGD detectors are now the standard for Oil & Gas projects. A wide range of flame detectors are available, from ultra fast (msec) detection time to high sensitivity hydrocarbon and hydrogen flame detection, alongside the equally large OPGD range that can detect hazardous gases, from flammable hydrocarbons to toxic Ammonia and Hydrogen Sulfide.

All Spectrex products can operate in the toughest conditions, from African deserts to Alaskan waters and are fully approved to meet relevant third-party Ex hazardous area, performance and reliability standards to the wide range of application challenges, worldwide.
