The General Monitors products receiving certification are the FL3100, FL3101, FL3102, FL3110, FL3111, FL3112, and FL4000 Flame Detectors; the IR400, IR4000M, IR4000S, IR2100, IR5000, S4000C, S4000CH, and S4100C Combustible Gas Detectors; the S4000TH, S4000T, S4100T, and TS4000 Toxic Gas Detectors; and the Gassonic Observer and Surveyor Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detectors.

These products are used in the oil & gas industry as well as in other process industries where plant equipment and people are exposed to hazardous plant conditions.

Certification provides greater assurance about a supplier’s claim of SIL suitability. The voice of a foremost authority on normative standards for fire and gas detection equipment and an impartial organisation like FM Approvals can lend added credibility to a supplier’s assessment. Reliability calculations for end devices are already performed and available to the user, reducing the lead times for implementing SIL rated processes.
