Gas monitoring – Safety Gas Detection

Safety Gas Detection, a manufacturer and installer of gas-monitoring systems, has won a contract to service 34 systems at the University of Liverpool. The company will service the gas-alarm systems across 20 laboratories and several university departments as part of an annual maintenance contract.

The company’s gas-alarm systems monitor presence or depletion of a range of gases. Most common are alarms for oxygen depletion, which can use the oxygen measurement to identify nitrogen leaks. Systems are also available to detect CO and CO2, and monitor refrigeration gases, hydrocarbons, and flammable and toxic gases.

Gas-monitoring systems with Internet connection are also now available. These allow the company to dial into the system, in the event of an alarm, and send SMS text messages and e-mails to client personnel. With this approach, staff don’t need to enter the risk area to access the system’s touchscreen interface.
