Newer, Complementary Gas Detection Technologies Enhance Safety in Hazardous Industrial Environments
Keywords: Gas Detection, Ultrasonic Detection, Hyperspectral Imaging, Toxic Gas Detection, Combustible Gas Detection, Infrared Gas Imaging, Open-path Gas Detection, Point Detection.
After several high-profile accidents in recent years, such as the fatal Pike River Mine explosion in New Zealand, the threat posed by toxic and combustible gases in industrial facilities is drawing greater attention to the need for improved safety measures for employees and the surrounding communities. Not only have industrial explosions gained significant media exposure in recent years, but governments around the world are imposing stricter regulations.
Although gas detection technologies have come a long way, chances are that in a critical environment, no single type of gas detection system will offer an optimum safety solution. Along with traditional point detection approaches, a number of alternative technologies are now available to end users. These newer alternative technologies such as open-path, ultrasonic, and gas imaging can provide complimentary approaches to help overcome the shortcomings of traditional detectors to offer greater safety assurance through multiple levels of protection.
