General Monitors offers gas detectors for LNG production sites

Operators at remote liquefied natural gas (LNG) production sites who rely on portable or skid mount vaporiser production equipment will find General Monitors provides comprehensive gas and flame monitoring to prevent accidental explosions and fires.

General Monitors' S4000CH Combustible Gas Detector provides thorough, continuous monitoring of combustible gases via its robust catalytic bead technology. The unit features one person calibration and can virtually self-calibrate by activating a magnetic switch and applying gas. It is designed to monitor natural gas and vapours within the lower explosive limit (LEL) and provide status indication and alarm outputs. It complies with ANSI/ISA 12.13.01-2000 performance requirements for combustible gas detectors.

The IR400 Point IR Gas Detector uses infrared technology to sense for combustible gases and vapours to quickly and reliably detect LNG gas leaks. The detector comes factory pre-calibrated, has a three-second response time, takes only minutes to set-up, operates with less than 4.8 W of power, and is inexpensive to operate and maintain.

The FL3100H UV/IR Flame Detector monitors for both ultraviolet and infrared (UV and IR) spectral ranges and is highly immune to false alarms caused by radiation sources. Continuous Optical Path Monitoring (COPM) checks both optical path integrity and electronic circuitry once per minute; a wide field of view enables greater fire detection coverage. The flame detector's electronics are integral within its explosion-proof housing, allowing detector information to be processed at the point of detection.
