Combustible Gas Detection

Combustible gas detectors provide early warning of flammable gas concentrations before a catastrophic event occurs. Acoustic enclosures, fuel storage areas, cooling air circulation systems, pressure relief valves, and other enclosed spaces are all suitable areas for protection by gas detection instruments. High operating temperatures in these power package areas often preclude “in-situ” sensor installation, requiring the use of extractive vapor sampling techniques to ensure satisfactory sensor performance.

Floor drainage is another overlooked portion of many facility protection systems. Most liquid spills end up in the floor drains, and potentially explosive levels of combustible vapors are possible.

Another hazard risk in engine areas is toxic vapor accumulation. Enclosed spaces near combustion exhaust systems should always be monitored for oxygen depletion, carbon monoxide, and other toxic gas build-up. KEVTA Fire Systems offers their full line of reliable gas sensing technologies.
