Hazardex 2019 Conference Presentations - The Role of Combustible and Toxic Gas Detectors in Plant Safety

Author : Jon D. Miller, Technical Compliance Manager, Det-Tronics

21 November 2018

There can be confusion between equipment for process gas monitoring and gas detection systems for life safety. Life safety systems mitigate risks stemming from leaks of toxic and/or combustible gases, help prevent explosions and harm to workers caused by leaking gas, and in turn, reduce costly downtime. 

The paper begins with an overview of the hazardous location standards that impact gas detection needs and product certification requirements. Another consideration for understanding gas detection requirements is the target Safety Integrity Level (SIL).
