Overview

Most high-hazard process owners and managers know that automatic fire and gas detection systems can help save lives and mitigate operational risk. With the wide range of sensing & detection technologies available, the selection and placement of the optimal detection technologies for maximum protection are critical decisions that can have a lasting impact. In addition, proper fire and gas detection system installation, operation, and maintenance practices are required to ensure the fire and gas detection system is poised to deliver optimized performance and provide 24/7 protection. Unfortunately many owners and managers don't have detailed knowledge of the strengths and limitations of the available hazard sensing technologies nor the recommended methodology to assess and define the layers of onsite protection required to adequately safeguard their assets. Having to balance between optimized early warning/alarms and budget considerations further complicates this task. This webinar seeks to take the guesswork out of the fire and gas detection selection process and provide a high-level overview of the following topics:

  • Defining a fire and gas system
  • Applicable codes and standards
  • Gas detection technologies
  • Flame detection technologies
  • Best practices

Learn what to look for to optimize your facility's protection when it comes to gas and flame detection.

Key Takeaways

  • Discover the strengths and limitations of various gas and flame detection technologies
  • Understand best practices for installation, operation, and maintenance of gas and flame detectors
  • Learn about application coverage basics
